Default New grill/smoker not a egg but it did good on the tri-tip

it's about a quarter of the price and it was a early fathers day gift. so here it is



all put together


the inside

went and got some try-tips at sam's club while we were there today and seasoned one up with some Marvelous cherry rub and the other with some tatonka dust. I over cooked them a little for the wife and I don't mind to a point. These both came out just about how I planned. Smoked with some hickory and then reverse seared at the end. Both reached the high 150's
Here are some pics for ya and we all loved both, the cherry flavor really came through on these for a different twist on a beef flavor profile. The tatonka dust really reminded me of a classic bbq flavor, yet I couldn't place the flavors. I am a fan for sure.

This cooker was easy to use and control the temps, even on a windy day here in Casper (go figure). I was able to lower the temps with no problem and also raise them when I wanted. It cruised at 265 for about 2 hours before I decided to crank it up for the finally….Then I remember I had tanking out two chubs of sausage to smoke for later, so I cranked it back down to around 225 with no problem. I would recommend one so far, at least after this smoke. Only time will tell if I change my mind or not.





on they go


sliced and diced


Plated and ready for some abuse

This is the snoker Menard's is selling, I think. From what I've seen, it's sold at several different stores in different colors, but it seems like the structure and features are the same whether it's the Menard's or Lowe's version.

"insulated heat for juicy meat"! I would love to meet the marketing guru who came up with that slogan! :-)

Best of luck with the cooker! Looks great!


Fire inspires!

It is we got it at Menards. Not bad for the money at all.

I wondered about that too. Next time, smoke it to med. rare, cut your part off and over cook the rest for the wife. You both win that way.
