Vertical Smokers

Recommended Posts

Well the old propane " smokey mountain " of 16 years or so is getting to the point of hammering on the regulator and burner to work so I think it's time. 

 

I've got my eye on this pit boss pellet smoker, I do like how the cook range will go higher than the competition especially for foiling to finish ribs. Any thoughts or experience with this brand?

I have a pit boss (Cabela's) pellet grill and it is a very good unit. IMHO it is a better built unit than Traeger.

 

I would not hesitate to buy a vertical from them if I was looking.

Get ready to be a slave to the hopper!  What they run an hour or so before refilling? 😏

The big one holds like 60 pounds of pellets and can run for 24 hours or more before refilling. Did you actually have anything to add to the discussion? :lol:

Do you actually know anything about pellet smokers?

With the PB Copperhead Pellet Smoker there is no need to fret about cooking lengths – its 40 pound plus hopper allows you to cook for up to 24 hours!

 

BTW, how long do the wood chips last in your electric smoker, 30 minutes?

I bought a Charbroil electric. Really like it. I got the stand for it and put a wheel set on to roll it around. It's got a remote too so you can sit and watch the game inside and still keep an eye on heat, internal meat temp and time and make changes if needed.  I filled the wood chip holder 2 times in the 8hrs the brisket was smoking. 🙂

My new set up. Got it mid-summer from a friend who hardly used it. So far I have done ribs, loin, crappies, and eggs. And pickles 2 times. excellent on a burger!

Like the rolling cabinet. Looks like a nice storage area for wood chips, scrappers, tin foil and all the other gizmos needed for grilling and smoking. And gets the smoker up so you don't have to bend down to fill it. 🙂

I have had a few electric smokers but if I ever change that up I will definitely go to a pellet smoker. I have had my mind set on making one from an old refrigerator but these bigger pit boss models might just be the ticket.

I bought a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 40" last winter and ended up giving it to a friend of mine to have at his cabin. They are fine, don't get me wrong but I just wasn't happy with the ribs I made in there as opposed to a charcoal smoker. It is ironic that Leech made the comment about a vertical pellet smoker needing to be refilled often because that is one of the things I didn't like about my MES. Maybe Leech's Char Broil has a bigger wood chip hopper but the MES had to be filled about every 20 minutes to keep smoke rolling.

 

I'm not against electric smokers and if that is what I had started out on I would probably still be using it but I found that instead of having a minimum of 3 pieces of grilling equipment to store and maintain, I can do everything I need to do with just a pellet grill and still have the ease of set it and forget it like an electric smoker. If I needed a very large cooking space I wouldn't hesitate to pick up one of those Pit Boss verticals even if I ended up changing out the controller for something with better temp control.

    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
