    New Guy Learning to Use a New to Me Smoker

    Hi, I've purchased a Dyna-Glo electric smoker - used, and I'm trying to figure it out. It doesn't seem to light wood chips or pellets on its own. I've had to use my torch to light them from the top to get the smoke to roll out. Is this normal? I thought that the electric heating element was...

    First time ever doing a butt

    Today I smoked my first butt ever. It went great. I put a 7.5 lb butt on my Dyna-glo smoker around 1245 pm and pulled it off around 845. Kept my temps around 230-260. Wrapped it in foil at 160° IT and pulled at 200°

    Triton/DynaGlo vertical offset smoker rebuild

    Has anyone seen any posts or mods where someone has taken the Triton Vertical Smoker from Academy Sports and then chopped the fire box off, flipped the cooking chamber horizontally and reattached the fire box? The reason I ask is I’m thinking that’s what I’m going to do to mine. The vertical...

    Please help me choose a 2-door smoker

    Hi I currently have a 1-door smoker, and I hate it because smoke/temp is lost when I open the door. I am considering few options. Few considerations: 1)I want a big(ger) smoker box, ideally 2)I would prefer to stay away from glass windows. I don't think it's important to look at meat, but the...
