    COMMERCIAL JED MASTER SMOKERS?

    Anyone familiar with JED MASTER commercial smokers? I lost mine in a fire and am not having any luck finding another one. Mine was 6' tall X 6' wide X 48" deep, Rotisserie, H2O and charcoal. I purchased off another gentleman, it was inside my concession trailer and he tried about 10 years...

    Chargriller 9800

    So my cousin sent me a link for the new Chargriller 9800 and it’s a gravity fed! Looks like they slapped on 560/1050 parts to one of their grills basically. This however comes with a dampener control and other minor tweaks. Wonder if they addressed the issue with firebox deteriorating? This...

    Masterbuilt 560 help

    Recently bought a used masterbuilt 560 for $100. Needed some work but didn’t want to turn it down because it was so cheap. Wanted to see if anyone had any pointers on placements of wood. Is it best to put some chunks mixed in with the charcoal in the stack, place wood in the ash tray or do a...

    No Name charcoal briquettes

    For other Canadian members: My local No Frills has No Name brand briquettes on sale for dirt cheap I've never used them and don't want to ruin a good piece of meat by using a poor quality charcoal. Has anyone had any experience with them? Good, bad, terrible? TIA

    New to Offset and Charcoal Smoking, Help.

    New to smoking and used an electric smoker for the last year. I just purchased a Dyna Glo vertical offset smoker. Did some suggested mods (sealed the seams and placed a heat diverter in the cook box). I started by seasoning it and testing with a lump hickory coal. Got a real heavy white smoke...

    Can you burn lump charcoal in the grill chamber of an offset pellet smoker?

    I'm done with big box grills and smokers, and am ready to buy a good piece of equipment. I was going to buy an offset smoker, since I mostly grill but I do like to smoke now and again. I don't smoke meat too much, since I don't have a lot of time to spend tending to the fire. So the idea of a...

    Charcoal vs Pellets vs Wood vs Gas vs Electric

    I own every type of cooker except the electric smoker. My first smoker was electric so I do have experience with that type also. This is my experience with all of them, keep in mind your experiences will be different. I will dive into electric smokers first. An electric smoke in my opinion is...

    Ribeyes

    Hey all, it's been a while but just stopping by to share an amazing dinner we had tonight. I found a great ribeye roast at my local grocery which was a shock because you usually don't find this with a fair amount of marbling. I felt this one was more than worthy and was on sale so it just made...

    Going Rogue

    I've had my 14.5" WSM for several years now and have smoked in all kinds of conditions. Never had an issue holding temps. It's really a rock solid smoker that just chugs along. It's been a while since I've bought a new gadget and I was getting the itch, so I finally pulled the trigger on...

    Camp Maid Chimney & Chicken

    A while back I picked up the Camp Maid folding charcoal chimney to keep in my camp gear. The standard chimney is fine, but I don't have a good place to store it in the trailer. This chimney can be stored in a 12" D.O. which I just happen to have in the trailer all the time. As advertised it says...

    Help! Kamado Joe Charcoal advice

    So I’m a nube when it comes to the smoker—but I figured it was going to be the only way to get the kind of BBQ I was after up here in Flanders, NJ. I’ve done three briskets and two pork shoulders sp far in my new Kamado Joe and all have come out way way too smoky for my taste. My brother uses a...

    Hello from Ontario Canada

    Hey there! I'm super excited to be making goose jerky today. I have the meat marinading in the fridge since Wednesday night. I am using a vertical charcoal smoker for only the second time ever. I made goose jerky once last summer and it turned out really good. I only wish I had documented...

    Adventures in vegan BBQ

    I'm not a vegan, but I had the opportunity to try some pulled jackfruit at Blue Pit Bbq outside of Baltimore and I could not get it off my mind since! There are a million recipes for turning this fruit into tacos and barbeque, but I couldn't find anyone who had smoked it! So armed with very...

    Cooking over Charcoal = Toxic Masculinity?

    I was curious if anyone here caught the new Gillette Ad which encourages us to shed our "toxic masculinity," which apparently includes cooking over charcoal. I'm now on the brink of taking my Weber collection to the dump. Any advice?

    Lighting a few coals

    The first couple of times I used the minion method, I lit a few pieces of charcoal using my chimney upside down with a couple of pieces of newspaper. It worked just fine, but the last 2 smokes I’ve done, I can’t get it to light. The newspaper either falls down the chimney and is too far from the...

    First time smoking

    This weekend is my birthday and first one in my own home so I decided to smoke a brisket. I will be using a charcoal grill and be using the snake method. Now I was only able to order a 7 pound brisket so hopefully that will work since everywhere I look says 10-12 pounds. Any tips or tricks...

    Slow 'N Sear vs. Charcoal Baskets -- Weber Kettle 22"

    So I've been tossing around the idea of buying a slow 'n sear for indirect cooking from adrenaline bbq but since they're kind of pricy, I was looking around for some alternatives and found these charcoal baskets made for the Kettle. They cost a fraction of what a slow 'n sear does but I want to...
