    Pellet with small smoke flavor

    I am in the middle of a big decision, what grill to get and how to organize it in my outdoor kitchen. I have a vertical smoker, a smoke vault that will never make it to the kitchen, so I am in the middle and need to make a choice. I want to get a GMG Ledge. It is the smaller version and has...

    Here's my issue with pellet smokers

    Just smoked a 20 lb. brisket on GMG Daniel Boone. Members of this community have helped me learn techniques and things to watch out for. One of the best bits of advice was to get an Inkbird wifi thermometer so I know what the actual temp is inside my cook chamber. The 20 pounder was started...

    What model GMG is this?

    Inherited this smoker from my father-in-law a couple months ago. I know it's a Green Mountain Grill brand, and it looks like an old version of their Daniel Boon. It doesn't have any digital display or anything and I'm trying to find out what exactly the modes do. Smoke, Medium, and High. I mean...

    Hi guys, Long time since I've posted anything here, very long time ... So here's a beer can chicken, which to be honest is not quite a beer can one, but rather a beer ceramic base. This base you can get on Amazon for about 20$, and then just use your favourite liquid in there - beer, apple...
