Grill Purchase Advice.
 
Good morning! A few buddies (there will be 3 of us total) and I are going camping in late May. We intend to only eat things that have hooves or gills.
I don't want to bring my OT-Silver because I don't want to take it apart (and this is a great chance to add to my collection).

My question... Should I go with the standard Smokey Joe? If so, gold or silver? Or the Jumbo Joe?

I appreciate all of your thoughts...

Best... MJE

I would suggest the Jumbo Joe as it is a 18.5in grate. Much more cooking area but same portability as the regular smokey joe.

If the JJ has the same height as a Smokey Joe Platinum it'll sit taller than a regular SJ, but that's really only an issue if it's going to be hauled in a car trunk and I'm guessing you'll be driving an SUV/truck or pulling a trailer.

Chicken- Actually I will be putting it all in my Honda Accord! Never doubt an Accord!! Great point about the height... Thanks.

I'll stick my vote in for none of the above. Go with a Weber Go-Anywhere! Gives you the option to do indirect cooking.

If I had to pick from your choices, I'd say a jumbo Joe. Mostly since you can set up indirect on it too with lightly more room for food.

Um, the WGA IS one of the above...:becky:

I had the perception that people had trouble keeping WGAs lit/hot? Is that inaccurate?

Put trailer hitch on Accord. Buy this.

Check out Brethren Phubar's WGA cook threads. He works magic with his.

MJE9 04-17-2013 09:34 AM

This is the perfect plan!

Lol! Fark! I didnt notice you beat me to it G.

Must've posted while I was typing mine up :thumb:

The WGA is the was to go I think. It saves on fuel, easy to store and carry and a great overall performer. :thumb:

MJE9 04-17-2013 09:55 AM

Well... This whole WGA idea has muddied my water! I hadn't considered it... It sounds like its a better cooker than the SJ or JJ?
