I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.

Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....

 

Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?

Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....

If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!

What the.... didn't you just get that for x-mas?  A great read on pellet grills gents, call me cheap or old school but I'm still stuck on open pit and charcoal on the big rig.

So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker?

Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.

No, I wanted both in one package.

A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.

I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc.

Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. ?

Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.

You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.

 

If you just want small runs of stuff that might work.

I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking

OK, so I like my little Pit Boss pellet grill so much I decided to go "all in" on pellet grills!

 

I ended up getting a 2013 Louisiana Grills CS-680 showroom model that was still brand new/never used.

I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well.

I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.

Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂

How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.

    • yea but i've seen you fish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😩😜 i've never had issues with hose melting or found it to be inconvenient, but to each there own. i have concidered an 11 lb tank!
    • Here's an old post I found about the WI explosion:   mtbucket Posted February 6, 2012 Thoughts and prayers to this man and his family. It makes me wonder if he was one of the guys that said " I have done it for years with no problems". POLK COUNTY (WCCO) — One person is dead and another is in the hospital after a garage explosion and fire Saturday, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office says the incident occurred at 657 U.S. Highway 8 in Apple River Township. Stanley Johnson, 81, was inside the garage “actively filling a small 1 lb LP cylinder from a larger 20 lb tank” when the small tank ruptured and ignited the escaping gas. Johnson’s wife, 77-year-old Nancy Johnson, was in the garage area when the explosion occurred. She was pronounced deceased on scene. Stanley Johnson was able to escape the garage. He was transported to Amery Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries
    • I remember the pictures you posted of your neighbors house. Those pictures along with the news paper article about the guy from WI that blew up his garage and killed his wife were enough to convince me not to refill 1lb tanks.
    • Just my opinion but I find the 1 pounders to be convenient. I used to hook up a hose to my mr. Heater/Cooker years ago and run off a 20 pounder and I almost melted through the hose. I never found dealing with a hose and a tank to be as convenient as using the 1 pounders.    For me, if it were all about saving a couple of bucks, I would just buy my fish in a store. It seems funny to me that guys that spend thousands of dollars to sit on a sheet of ice and catch fish would risk their safety trying to save a couple of bucks on propane.   But again, that's just my opinion.
    • Thanks for all the info fellas! I ended up buying two 140 mm fans, but have only installed one.  I decided to take it one step further and install a thermo fan switch. I actually ended up buying the switch and mounting plate directly from empire for $30. This way the fan cycles with the heat. The switch kicks in about 5 min after the heat turns on and runs from about 5 min after it turns off. Using the switch should keep things more consistent.  I wired it up to a SPDT On-Off-On switch so that I can run it either in thermoswitch mode or manual.   As far as the fans go, the 140 mm seem are quieter and draw less (0.16 amp) than the 120 mm fans due to the reduced RPM requirements. One thing that I did notice though is that although they are rated high on the CFM scale, they do not seem to have near as much pressure as the smaller fans. I understand why that is, but not sure if the lower pressure will make a difference in pushing air over the heat exchanger. That was one reason that I left room for two  
    • A guy would probably want to buy a back up canister, at that price you could buy a 5lb and save a couple bucks. 
    • I like both so I smoke for about 2 hours and finish in dehydrator.
    • will stay with this method. dont want to be filling that thing every night.  I have a dozen that I keep reusing . 
    • 20 pounder in my sled aint gonna happen. 
    • Been there done that. Not worth refilling. I'll stick to my 20 lbers!
