    A good stick burner is a good beer drinking partner.
    They don't drink much beer.
    They don't talk about stupid stuff. There really good listeners. Will stay up as late as you want, even an all nighter if that's what it takes.

    Went out this afternoon to use my pit boss and despite keeping it covered it was jammed up with pellets that had got moist. We’ve had a lot of rain this week. About an hour later I had it cleaned out and smoking! I really like it, but now have to figure out how to keep it dry!

    It was a little pricey, but I bought the Green Mountain cover they offered for my Daniel Boone grill. Was keeping it under the porch but wife finally won that battle,it's out in the weather now. So far so good on keeping pellets dry. Only jam I had was when I tried to hurry it up to temp.

    Some even use wifi and you can program them to come on when meat temp reads thawed. When meat reaches your done temp, they will lower temp to hold. You can program low and smoke for a few hours then turn up the heat to crisped up. I didn't get the wifi model, I needed to feel somewhat needed.

    Screenshot_20200704-171257_Gallery.jpg Highly recommend the Don Godkes Downdraft. Made for a lot of pellet grills.Bolts on with the stack bolts, no modifications required. Pulls the smoke out at grate level, not the top. More smoke for the meat to bask in. Plus, fill that stainless tube with pellets and light the end. It smokes for a long time. I could really tell the difference in the amount of smoke flavor.

    Yes Wesley our pellet grill is kind of set and forget, set the desired temp for cooking, the desired temp for the meat, insert the meat probe and hit start it makes all the necessary adjustments to the temps. Like Billy we opted out of the WIFI equipped one. Ours is several years old and I did have to replace the circuit board thing once but it was plug and play situation that took about 10 minutes and was covered by warranty.

    I'm surprised at how much I like my pellet grill.
    They will hold 150 for jerky.
    They will crank to 500 for searing steak.
    Digitally back down to 350 to finish.
    It will hold 250 all night long on a long brisket cook.
    Have friends that bake deserts in them.
    It really is set it and forget it. They are extremely simple to work on. A moderate amount of smoke flavor.
    Can be increased with a down draft and smoke tube, using hickory,mesquite or other heavy smoke flavor woods. If I could have only one grill, it would be my pellet grill.

    I really like my old-school stick burner...
    IMG_1479.jpg
    Over the past 20 years, It has seen countless ribs, several whole pigs, a handful of salmon and flocks of chickens, whole and in pieces.

    However... a friend of mine invited us over yesterday for some baby backs as the inaugural meal from his new pellet smoker. Until now, I’ve only had a passing interest in the pellet smokers, but those ribs... wow!

    Maybe it is time for an upgrade!

    The pellet grill has given everyone the ability to maintain 225*, 250*, whatever your magic # to smoke at is. Makes the outcome awesome, no 400* spikes or 100* cool downs, just hums along steady at whatever temp you dial in. I believe the consistency is what makes the best Q.
