    Any experience here with the pit boss?

    I literally went to buy the gmg Davey crockett today, but when I saw it in person I realized it's just too small
    Almost bought a gmg Daniel Boone choice, but I literally couldn't get anyone in the fancy grill store to pay attention to me so I left
    Went to another place and the only had the boone prime, which is twice as expensive and I've read bad stuff about the new prime line

    Talk me out of buying this pit boss, gunna be across the street from a Wal mart in about an hour

    I do not, sorry. I've heard of them before, no experience though. Looks like its more bang for your buck than a Traeger and the warranty is 5 years vs. 3 years (Traeger).

    Here's a review I just read on it:

    Not really many opinions on the pit boss?

    Kinda scared me off



    I'll probably go buy it in the morning

    Meh, probably not
    The big thing everyone gives it negative marks about is only 50 degree increments on setting temps
    I feel like that would eventually annoy me, especially when doing stuff like making sausage , which is one of the main things I have been thinking about a pellet smoker for

    On a different note, I just got a boos block this week, got it all oiled up and pretty

    Getting ready to cut some meat up to make jerky this weekend, and I don't think I can bring myself to use the boos
    It's too pretty, I don't wanna scratch it

    What temp is sausage? That’s odd it will do 200, 225, and 250 then jumps to 300.

    Depending on exactly what kind of sausage you are doing, but summer sausage is like.......
    stuff in casings then overnight in fridge, take out and let raise to room temp (75 or so) internal, then smoke at like 100, then 120, then 140, then 160, then 180 at 1 hour intervals leaving at 180 until internal temp hits 153

    It's a hell of a process

    Looks like Traeger and Green Mountain are the only pellet grills that go down to 150.

    I realize, none of the pellet units have temp controls that roll below like 150
    But I got that part figured out

    Done several batches with my super cold smoke unit and then transfer to my big war wagon, but damn yall, keeping the war wagon down to 160 to 180 degrees is a workout
    I built that thing to cook 10 + briskets at a time at 250 or whatever
    Keeping it cooler by still smoking for 10 pounds of sausage just seems wasteful

    I literally went to a grill place in austin today to buy this grill
    Read a bunch of stuff about it online, people saying it was perfect for rvs etc and fits one brisket perfectly

    Store I went to, I found the traeger tailgater first and I was kind of shocked how small it was, and everything I had read told me tje cooking surface of the Davey crockett was less than the tailgaters
    Found the gmg Davey crockett display and lol, it's smaller than my dehydrator
    I literally couldn't fit my forearm making a fist to elbow in it at an angle, and that's a good judge size of a brisket

    I laughed and decided I was going to buy the gmg Daniel Boone select they had for like $500
    Walked around trying to get the attention of the salesman.... two of whom were busy selling a lady a gas grill, the other who was behind the counter promptly jumped to help a guy that walked in the door as I was looking for help
    So I walked out

    I have a Rec Tec and my mom bought a Pit Boss. The Pit Boss is ok but it doesn’t have a lot of the features mine had and the couple of times I’ve cooked on it the temperature fluctuates a lot more than mine. That being said it’s not bad for the price point but imo if you’re going to invest in a pellet grill go big

    How should I treat spare ribs vs baby backs? I’ve got some spare ribs defrosting in the fridge since I left for work at 5:45 am :killme:

    A few weeks ago for my first cook I did two racks of baby backs between 250 and 275. One wrapped and sauced and one foiled dry with more rub. Both were great, but I did have a lot of beers and it was my first smoke.

    I’ve read further people here like to just go straight and not wrap at all. So think I might try that with the spare ribs.

    4 hours at 250ish should be fine. Or it least it was last time I did spares.

    Egg is 8 years old and over the last year the band has been getting loose and sliding so that it didn't close perfectly. I've been tightening it weekly but today it got out of place and I opened with too much for which did that
