Default New Pellet Smoker

I picked up a Country Smoker CS-450 from Pittsville Supply last weekend. Have used it twice now, first time doing a chicken and a couple of pork tenderloins, yesterday using it as a grill doing some london broils. So far I'm really liking this smoker. The nice thing is that it got up to 600+ degrees in about 20 minutes, after grilling, I kicked it back up for 10 minutes to do a self-cleaning.

Anyone else using these smokers? If so, any advice on using it? As far as smoking, do you crank the heat when the meat is first put on (to sear) then drop down?

I haven't decided that I'll sell the Bandera just yet, but it's not looking good for it.

Nice to hear about the new smoker. It would have been even better to SEE the new smoker in action.

I know, I know...been away too long. Have gotten the BBQ'ing itch again lately. Got tied up in other interests (honey do's) and getting to the point I can "enjoy" doing BBQ again. Might even get out and do a competition or two this year.

I mix Hickory and pecan pellets when doing beef and pork butts. Then apple for chicken and ribs.
I think the pellet smoker gives it a complete different flavor then my charcoal and wood cookers.
Just my opinion

Country smoker? What's that???

You'll love that cooker man. Been cooking on one since they arrived in KS.
Mine looks a little different for this season... Doing a trial cook on it after all the physical mods. I hope to have the controller working full tilt on it if the weather will hold for a few evenings.

I tried some pecan last night using it as a grill doing steaks. It was good, but pecan seemed to be very sooty, even at 500 degrees.

Never had a problem with it being sooty I do no that it only gives a lite smoke flavor works well with salmon.

What brand of pellets did you use?
