Default New Toy

Last week I saw a picture of this Davey Crockett model from Green Mountain Grills. I've never cooked on a pellet pooper but I'm going to enjoy learning. I ran a test burn tonight to see how easily I could maintain temps and how hot it would run. Success on both fronts. It took less than 15 minutes to reach 550 degrees and I was able to hold the temp for 30 minutes before I shut it down for the night.

Very nice, I wouldn't mind having a pellet pooper myself.

Those legs are in a serious need for cross bracing. The price is good, but those legs will fail at some point, I fear.

The legs fold up over the top as a carry handle. It will run on 12volt or 120. Have looked at it for camping

Nice cooker. Those legs seem different from the ones I have seen, maybe I just wasn't paying attention. There is nothing wrong with build quality for a GMG that I can remember

Good to know. As an architect, you definitely would know a thing ot two about load bearing. From the photos, I was having misgivings. Not immediate, but over a few years time.
