    As someone who has a pellet smoker, I like them.

    I really wanted a stick burner, but fuck that's some work

    Looked a bit better than it was. Got caught in some rain, ended up cooking a little longer than I should’ve. Corn-poblano slaw was good though.

    I will also probably be going the pellet smoker route once we move into our new house. What doesn't come with the price tag of a Yoder, the cheap construction of new Traegers, or the stupid ass bull horns of a Rec Tec?

    The new Weber is a greaser fire waiting to happen, they didn’t make a drip tray thinking the vaporizer bars would work and it’s been a bad deal. Also seeing they are having issues with the pellet hopper not dropping enough pellets into the auger.

    Plenty of folks out there are making custom handles to replace the horns. I will be replacing mine once I can find something I like- the cooker is excellent though.

    Lemme see if I can find you one- I am on a fb group board and see guys doing it all the time. A lot of people also just buy the traeger replacement handle and swap it out. They just screw on so are very easy to switch out.

    Yeah- I was really close to going with that one because it’s Weber- but after research I decided not to. I am sure they will get it fixed and it will be fine, I just didn’t want to wait on it.

    Pics don’t really do pulled pork justice, but it all turned out great. Will probably mix things up in the future as the bark didn’t harden back as much as I would have wanted after unwrapping. Took about 12 hrs total

    By the way, what kind of lump charcoal does everyone use? I used Fogo for my first several cooks and liked it a lot but it's obviously pricey. What's a comparable alternative?

    I have used some Royal Oak too but it is not very good in comparison.

    I’ve started using a mix of royal oak and nicer lump. Currently using Golden Cast Iron brand lump for the nice part of the blend and have been pleased. It’s a got a lot of big pieces in the bag, burns hot and clean.

    I've got some Jealous Devil that I'm liking so far. I've got a Royal Oak plant about an hour away that I got a 55 gal. drum for cheap. I'll be buying some Rockwood and FOGO once I get done with these 2 bags of Jealous devil(love the zipper close on these bags) I still have about 5 Gal of some good quality Royal Oak.

    I use Royal for short cooks and I like the Kamado Big Blocks for long. I will never buy Jealous Devil again. Have some BB or something like that to try out. I get Rockwood when I need something from ACE to use my coupon. Otherwise I don't think it's even close to worth what it costs.

    I think so based on my order history, might be slightly cheaper than that. I think the difference is that sometimes they offer free shipping which is when I typically order. Right now its telling me this item is unavailable for purchase online, have to go in store. I see that I got bags for about $22 delivered for free but I also get 10% off.

    Ace hardware had an online deal for BB charcoal, so I got 40 pounds of Hickory and 20 pounds of oak for $35 total. You could try checking online and seeing if the deal is still running

    best bang for your buck when it comes to lump

    it’s a tier 2 product but it’s definitely worth more than what you pay
