Second smoker

77 posts in this topic

I've had my electric master built smomer for a couple of years now and thinking maybe it's time to change. It works great and the set it and forget it fits my busy life but the cooking with wood and fire makes everything better. I'm wondering what do y'all prefer? Offset wood and fire smokers that take a little more tending to or just stick with the electric that works fine. Thanks

I started out many years ago with a little chief, then a big chief and now the masterbuilt 30 inch. So for me I havn't advanced beyond this stage. It works so nice I havn't had the bug to switch yet.

I've got the Masterbuilt electric also and just like yourself I like the set it forget it aspect of it.  I also have two Char-Griller barrel type smoker/grills with the side firebox that I use a lot.  One older one with the firebox getting rusty but trusty and the other one newer.  I use the fire box for lower temps.  Start off with charcoal and later put some cherry chips on there or use the AMPS tube smoker in the barrel.  I do want a bigger smoker however at some point.  I have made stuff for my neighbors party's for example where the two Char-Grillers came in handy but I also would like a bigger stand up smoker to do larger amounts of sausage also.  So the fun never stops.  good luck.

Disregard the sign, it was given to me by the guy's at work when I retired.  They said someday I will win at smoke offs.  Well I have never entered any.  This was the day I smoked a bunch of ribs for the neighbors graduation party.  He is a major in the US Army and his daughter had a high school graduation party combined with entering the Military party at the same time.  He bought the ribs and I smoked them.  He supplied my with beer all day as well.

Dang Reb that's one heck of a grill/smoker, that's a little more than what I'm looking for but with that you would definitely be the king of the neighborhood. Having that on your patio would be like having a pool, instead of all the kids coming over to swim all the fathers would be over to cook on it :)

I had a side-burner in the past, and never used it. Was a waste of space for me. Let us know how it works, JP Z. Pics will be needed, of course. ;)

    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL 
    • Leech is absolutely on the right track.  Likely an easy remedy here.
    • Oh yes, he has been around guns since young. I suspect it is a combination of his thinking they are "cool" weapons and the fact that he lives and often has to work in a "high tension" area. I believe he is more interested in high cap than high quality and he can likely spend something reasonable. Since these things are not my bag I am unaware of pricing, features etc. just told him I could ask around for him. Have never had one in my hands! He may have been fired up because he saw some special at F.Farm on them. Thanks.
    • No battery in a 185 3 wheeler. Will have to pull it by hand.
    •   Does he own other guns?   What does he want it for? Self defense Hunting Just to own an AR because they are cool   How much money does he have to spend on one?
