Wondering what kind of equipment you guys and gals are using. I have a gas stainless steel Jenn Air grill. Three burner with rotisserie. I bought it in 2005 still works great for grilling.

I also have a gas Browning Smoker four racks. It does a good but you have to baby sit it. Due to temperature fultuation.

Thinking of replacing it with a electric Bradley Smoker. They are insulated and should be more stable with temperature. I don't know anyone that has one and for me its a sizeable investment.

Do any of you all own one of these? Are there any good electric smokers that you all could recommend?

Sorry I have no clue on smokers, insulated sounds better anyway.

I know one thing Jeff, I want to come to your house for a cookout. We are real rednecks here. Just a plain charcoal grill. I got rid of the gas grill, hated the taste and messing with a gas bottle. The charcoal isn't that much of a bother as I only do steaks and burgers outside. Too bad we don't live closer. I provide the meat........you do the cooking!!!

Us rednecks here take old pressure tanks from a well system and make them into grills and smokers.

I bought a cheap smoker for about $60 years ago, my recommendation is, don't buy a cheap smoker lol. A friend of mine has a home made one that he does ham's in (he raises his own hogs) the thing works great, now if I could only convince him to make me one. :D Now that you got me thinking about it that's another toy I need to put on my list of things to buy. :cool:

I have a Weber Genesis S-330. i am very happy with it. I use it more than my over. I hooked it up to natural gas. NG does not fluctuate with ambient temperature burns hotter that propane and offers an endless supply. I purchased this last year and plan on having it for a long time. Sorry Jeff I am not a smoker. Yet.

I've got an older Charbroil grill 4 burner side burner grill I bought about 4 years ago that I'm still pretty happy with. When we tear out the old patio I might look at setting the grill into a paver stone base.

Take it easy

We'll try Betty a one pound Rib Eye at a time we'll try. The local butcher shop will cut them 3/4" to an 1" thick and they are always super tender.

I had NG in my last house and my new house.It does burn nicer and you don't have to keep an extra tank around.

The propane bottles put out oil sludge?We use the same type bottles on equipment and you would be amazed of the oil sludge that comes out of the regulator which we drain every 100hrs.That would be why you get a bad taste from the propane.

I am grill poor, really! My favorites though are the Green Mountain pellet grills I have. The Daniel Boone (medium size) & Davey Crockett (tail gaiter) models use wood pellets (different flavors) and are thermostatically controlled. They will keep temps steady anywhere from 150 to 550 degrees. Both of mine are WiFi that I control using an app with my phone and can program to monitor/change grill temps after a certain amount of time or based on food temps. You can also upgrade the firmware if they have new releases. Best bang for the buck IMO.

Nothing wrong with charcoal. Love the taste. But I also love the smoke taste of hickory and apple wood.
