you could aways GO this routeI'm in need of a new smoker and grill. The grill is already toast and the smoker is on her last legs. I'd like to do one piece that combines them all and I'm not looking to spend like mad.
I've read about the Traegers and the RecTec pellet smokers/grills. Thoughts on those?
My typical uses: A good amount of grilling, burgers, brats, chicken, pork, etc... and probably a smoke every 6 weeks or so.
The Kamodo Joe's are on sale at Costco this week and while a bit more than I wanted to spend, they do look pretty amazing. I'm concerned about how long it takes to get the heat up to the 500 range though and will I get too lazy!
I know you're in Nebraska, but I swear my next scheduled trip back I'll buy one from you and haul the damned thing back to South Carolina. Nice work as always.
Let me know when, I will have food on a smoker, and throw a big ass party, cause that's what I do, otherwise the bar is right across the street from my shop,I know you're in Nebraska, but I swear my next scheduled trip back I'll buy one from you and haul the damned thing back to South Carolina. Nice work as always.
I have:I have a family member that has one and loves it. I've been reading about them and the RecTec mini (I don't need the full sized one). They both look pretty good but I was hoping for some more feedback from anyone here that's used one/both.
The Treager is electric and the heat is provided by the pellets, the electric part drives an auger that moves the pellets, heats a pellet lighter/burning rod (looks like a glow plug), and fan. The heat is controlled by how fast the auger moves the pellets into the burning pot and the fan pushing air to them as they burn.The Treager isn't electric, correct? The heat is provided by the wood pellets?
