    Camp Chef 24" Smoke Vault vs Masterbuilt 40 inch ThermoTemp XL vs OTHERS?

    I am new to smoke products. I grew up on propane and as a new home owner, I only own a 36" Blackstone Griddle and want to get into cooking more food at home; using just a griddle isn't enough. I LOVE smoked flavored foods, so I have been really looking into vertical smokers. I still intend on...

    Smoker Door Sprung

    Hey y'all! I'm finally building my offset smoker but ran into an issue with the door. When cutting out the main door the metal on the tank sprung. See pics Hard to get a fantastic pic of it, but the top bows in the middle. The bottom is bowed out the entire length of the door. The left side...

    PitBoss Pro Series 2 Combo

    Alright, after much research and many opinions and thoughts, I purchased the pitboss pro series 2 combo pellet/gas grill from lowes. I have broken it in with a tri tip cooked last night, turned out great and the meat probe was pretty close to the wireless meater+ problem that I have as well...

    Fillets are what's for Breakfast!

    I landed my Q220 portable gas grill from my neighbor (happen to be making a delivery that took me past the house 5 mins after he put it on the curb) and this was the first meal cooked on it after it was cleaned (REALLY needed it). I decided to try putting some mesquite chips around it to see if...

    Oklahoma Onion Burgers

    Another meal inspired by Kent Rollins Oklahoma Onion Burger hit the grill. We grabbed some cheddar burger patties before we watched the video and had some onions on hand. I fired up the Q220 and finally got the chance to use the Teflon mats I bought last year. Add some corn and slaw for a...

    Firebox Intake?

    I have been reading threads for awhile now and was given an opportunity to DIY my very own legit smoker. I'm in the home stretch and trying to decide on my fire box intake. It seems that I have had very good test runs with just cracking the door but I have children and think it'll be a bit...

    Masterbuilt Propane Smoker WILL NOT STAY LIT

    I have a 1 1/2 year old MB 20050716 Masterbuilt Propane smoker with the glass door. It worked fine for about 4 smokes, but now, it will not stay lit. When I go to start it, i push in the selector and turn it counterclockwise to high like it saves. When I hit the igniter it roars to life, and...

    Running Too Hot

    I have a Landman vertical smoker and it runs too hot. I have tried opening, closing and blocking the help. I run about 255+ as low as I can go without opening the door. I have a ThermPro probe suspended from the hooks in the top of the smoker as my temperature source. Water pan...

    Masterbuilt Smoker Issue

    Hello everyone. Newbie here. I have a question about my Masterbuilt John McLemore Signature Series Propane Smoker. I just acquired this smoker over the weekend, and had the thought of smoking on it yesterday. I lit the burner, which worked fine. It had a nice small blue flame. As I turned the...

    Hello everyone! This is my first smoker build ever, I usually bbq in my weber kettle (I live in Mexico) but I wanted to step up the smoking a little bit and found an old 80g propane tank in my shop and thought that it would be a cool project. The tank is around 13/64" thick so I thought I...

    Switch from propane to house gas

    Done some looking but haven’t found anything to help with this specific issue. I have a propane smoker that I want to run off house gas to make things cheap and simple. I bought an adapter that goes from 3/8 gas line to the little green bottle adapter fitting. Hooked the hose up and...

    Let's talk size

    Thinking about a propane tank offset smoker. I am looking for the approximate number of briskets I could fit on a 250 gal./500 gal./1000 gal.? Anyone have a good feel for this?

    Pork loin roast keeps getting better and better!

    Let me start out by first saying I am no pro. I just started in this journey last year, and am starting to love it! Yesterday I bought a pork loin rib half roast. I seasoned it with a basic home made rub. Let it sit in the fridge over night. Today I fired up the propane smoker to 265F (only...
