Personally I like the Sedona. They both look well-built and innovative, but it just feels to me like the Boothill is trying to be too many different things in one cooker. With the Sedona you have a smoker and a grill that are separate and don't require you to jump through thirty steps to change up. And with the Sedona you can be smoking brisket and grilling something else at the same time.


Also, if you're in Grand Rapids, MI, you might want to look for something with more insulation so you're not going through an entire forest to smoke a few butts.

Grand Rapids isn't too far from Peoria where they make the Peoria Cookers. Just sayin'...


Also, if you cut down I-57, over to US 24 across to I-55 to I-74, you can avoid the worst of the Chicago traffic on I-80.

The Meat Monster with the internal firebox would be a smooth transition from a kamado. Both are heavily insulated and easy to use.


Whereabouts do you hunt?

Sounds pretty rough. I'm about an hour and 20 minutes from Galesburg.

I'd be happy to feed you and let you check out the Meat Monster. You might also want to check out the hunting around here. Pike County whitetails are famous enough to bring people from Dale Earnhart Jr. to Ted Nugent here to hunt.

I've shown my bias in your other post but I like the Sedona setup. I prefer cookers that are specialized to a function vs trying to have one that does everything -- plus it's just plain cool looking. Really love the look of the Tombstone Tom b posted but worry a bit about the height of the Santa Maria. Looks to be quite a bit higher than when they build it on a stand alone basis.

Yes they are, my friend runs an outfitter out of Calhoun/Pike County.

I’m in Rockford/Ada if you want to check out my cooker.
