    Any reviews on the Masterbuilt 600B, anything at all??

    So I am not the best meat smoker in the land I admit it. I am very subpar, lol. Of course I’ve never tried to learn, my dad is a smoke king but as a kid I didn’t care. Now at 46 I kinda really want to learn. So I’ve been eyeing a Pitboss pellet smoker for a while now. Keep complaining to the...

    Another Turkey Thread

    Hey everyone I know there's going to be and are a bunch of these but, well, I like to share. I had a 10# and a 12# bird which I brined for 15 hours each. My brine consisted of salt, sugar, thyme, rosemary, onion etc. I used the briner bucket which is awesome. One bird brined in the spices with...

    My name is Austin and I’m 28. I just moved out to the quasi-country and picked up a pellet grill. I’ve made chicken with mango, coconut, and jabeñero glaze and some crab stuffed salmon, but mostly I’ve been doing pork (tender)loin and pork ribs. I’m a fan of the competition blend pellets so far...

    Pellet grill (Traeger) = less smoke flavor?

    I own an Traeger and use it a lot. Mostly Briskets and Ribs. I find that I never achieve (especially with ribs) the same smokey flavor as guys using wood and coals. Also, my never come out as dark as other guys (using same rubs etc). My thoughts are this: since meat only absorbs smoke for the...

    Electric smoker and gas grill or pellet smoker?

    Looking for some advice. Until recently, I had a standard (natural) gas grill and a 30 inch Masterbuilt electric smoker. However, shortly after going out of warranty, the smoker's control unit gave out and, after I replaced that, some internal component died and I had to scrap it. I liked the...

    Weber Kettle pellet cooker

    Google suggested this to me. Haven't seen it anywhere else. Somebody wants to make a pellet cooker addon for the old kettle. I guess if it's cheap why not. Anyone know anything about this thing or the guy making it?

    Burger flare up

    Hey all... As some may know I recently got a pit boss pro series 1100 not sure that will matter much as I feel it may just happen on any pellet grill. Tonight I tried some 80/20 burgers. I made the patties about 1 in thick and the size was pretty decent in diameter, enough to fit well on the bun...
