Welcome to SMF from North Texas.
I don't bash anyone that likes a set it and forget it. Now liquid smoke on the other hand...

Welcome from Kentucky! I use a pellet grill more often than not, so no, I wouldn't call you a poser for using the Bradley.

Welcome from MIddle TN! Nothing wrong with set it and forget it. I go back and forth between my pellet pooper and WSM depending on my level of lazy when I do longer cooks. My WSM takes a little babysitting sometimes, especially after startup. Nothing serious, but I may have to adjust the vents from time to time. Just so long the hopper on my pellet grill is full, and the power doesn't go out, I'm good.
Welcome from Texas. Not a poser at all! I’m on a pellet 90% of the time.

Welcome from Colorado. I think as long as you enjoy the cook, all is good. I like tending a fire with a cold beverage, but I certainly understand those that want a similar flavor without the stick fed fire. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
