Better than the first batch. Still needs SOMETHING. Wife recommended habanero

I actively had the smoker on at 190 for 4.5 hours, then turned it off and went to bed. This was coming out after work

About half the bag is gone now

My buddy that owns the local beer growler shop recently started carrying quality meat. So I was bored out of my mind Sunday afternoon and stopped by for a bottle of red, a cigar, and a big ribeye. I reverse sear it on the egg. It came out a little OD, more medium, since I had to burn my pregnant wife's steak. He also gave me a little pack of Banner butter, it was great.

Is a smoker really worth buying? I want to make amazing brisket and ribs at home... and if I do buy a smoker - do the electric ones work as well as the traditional kind?


Thank you

I had a Weber smoker for years. Initially I used it a lot. But over time I used it less and less. Like most things, it is worth having if you use it. So you need to think about whether or not you'll really use it enough to make it worth buying.

I would highly recommend something like a big green egg or komando Joe. You can smoke low and slow or kick it up to 800 degrees for searing steak, it just takes a little practice. If you already have a decent grill, Traegers are great smokers but they are kinda cheating. Haha.

Thanks for the replies/insight - I use my Weber grill quite often - just looking for something more .


Big green egg is out of the budget I reckon until things get back to biz as usual, but solid suggestion!

Smokers are great. I have not used a ceramic cooker (egge/joe) but I have had some very tasty bbq out of them.

I have used a vertical water smoker (stainless steel cabinet, burner at the bottom, cast iron smoke box, water bowl) and I have two treagers.

Pellet cookers are 'cheating' a little bit, and I do believe you leave a little bit of 'quality of the cook' on the table. If you learn how to use your pellet cooker you will get 90% of the quality for about 60% of the work.

If you are new to bbq I would highly recommend a treager, you get to all but eliminate the temperature variable and get good product the first time and every time. The better your results the more you will enjoy it, and you get to work on your recipes.

I would like to get (or make) an offset stick burner next, but I am very happy with the experience I have had using my treagers.

BTW, you can make excellent pizza on a treager, it takes a bit longer.

I have a regular gas smoker, smoke vault I think it's called. Got it as a gift. I use it all the time to make jerky. I have also done briskets and ribs etc, but I just don't cook whole briskets that often as we don't have enough people come over to eat a whole brisket. However I have definitely used it enough to think it's worth it (assuming I had paid for it).

So I guess it just depends how much you plan to use it, do you have the space for it etc.

Smoked some pigsicles this weekend. Went with a sweeter rub for the wife's ribs, and spicy for mine. Did a honey bbq rub on hers and put a little apple juice in the foil when I wrapped. Mine had a mix of Mango habanero and honey sriracha rubs, and I added a little Tiger sauce when I wrapped it.

Spent part of the day yesterday putting this together. My old one was 10-15 years old and in the last year or so several non-replaceable parts had starting to rot away.

Ugh I need a new gas grill for home. Do I buy another $500 homedepot special that lasts 10 years but I have to rebuild 1/2 way through? Or poney up and buy a weber?

My issue is I need the same cooking space. I just feel stupid paying over a grand for a grill...

If cooking space is the only criteria, then yes get the cheaper disposable brand (although $500 sounds expensive for a cheap disposable). But if heating capacity, heat retention, build quality matter then get something better.

I was looking at these models:

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Dyna-Glo...dalType=drawer or
https://www.homedepot.com/p/Dyna-Glo...dalType=drawer

both $500



Cheaper models:
https://www.homedepot.com/p/Nexgrill...dalType=drawer or https://www.homedepot.com/p/Dyna-Glo...dalType=drawer

$300ish


Webber:
https://www.homedepot.com/p/Weber-Ge...dalType=drawer

$1150

Hard to justify double unless it lasted longer...any suggestions would be appriciated!

I bought a new grill in 2015 when I wanted a bigger one (went with LION, wish I stuck with Weber). I still have my Weber Genesis I bought back in 2002 that I use once or twice a year when I need even more space. It is has a cover over it but is in an uncovered part of our patio. I have replaced grill grates, burners, casters, thermometer and other parts on it over the years, but it keeps going. Weber’s will definitely last but if you don’t grill much or care about how well it heats and holds heat, I’d go cheaper than the $500 option and just replace it when necessary.

Thanks. I've been experimenting with my own marinades lately. And I'm very happy to say that I've created some special ones. Ginger has been the main flavor profile I've used.
So basically the one used here consists of:
Fresh ground ginger, OJ, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper. Honestly I don't use exact measurements, I simply mix and adjust the next time if it wasn't too my liking.
