Ours is getting dusted off this weekend for an Easter Monday picnic! Top-Rated Desserts Vic Vierbickas says Swimwear Fish Finders Thanks for this comprehensive look at a wide variety of grills. I have been thinking about outdoor cooking for some time now, but my apartment complex frowns upon it. Still, they do provide us residents with a few stationary grills that we can use whenever we like. We just can’t use a grill in our apartments is all. I really wasn’t aware that gas was more economical than the cinder style, which is interesting. I’m all for saving money whenever possible, so this is good information to have. Hopper Capacity Easy Watchin', Easy Learnin' Grand Lake Hotel Deals Shop Online Returns & Replacements If you have never used an offset smoker, here are some product tips. This item is $75.00 and is not a BBQ or Grill, it is a slow smoker. You put a small amount of fuel in the firebox and meat on grilling area. There are larger pricier models for larger smokes. This unit is only 4ft wide and very light. With the handle and wheels, you can move it easily with 1 hand. It is designed for lower heat long smoking sessions. For example, with the right temp, cooking smoking chicken could take 2 hours but flavor is marvelous. This item is not for BBQ the quick meal. Assembly: go nice and slow, easy on tightening screws bolts, etc. The photo on box and front of manual helped with the cross bars on legs as they have a lip. Instructions do not show! Photo did. When you attach main hood brackets, manual does not show extra lip on hinge! Install brackets onto drum first with "lip" pointed towards rear and upward. This is not in manual. Only finger tighten parts as you go along, allow for small movement. Especially when attaching drum to base, firebox and main hood. This will allow for all holes to line up as you move thru each step. After you have attached firebox, and lower drum to frame, then tighten all nut and bolts. This will put everything in square. Finally, when you attach top hood to lower drum brackets, this is the tricky part. Manual says install hinges, CLOSE HOOD AND TIGHTEN BOLTS FROM INSIDE! Lame lame lame! You cannot get to the inside when the hood is closed. Better to have 2 people if you can for assembly. Doing it alone was only troublesome when attaching top hood to brackets on drum. Had to hold hood and place one nut bolt into hood thru hinge, finger tight, while keeping other end of hood from drooping! Then without letting go, slid hand under hood to attach bolt on other side. Success! Forget instructions "close lid tighten bolts from inside" You will need wrench on inside and outside of hood to tighten nuts bolts. No lock washers! Balancing act again to keep hood square with top of drum. I finger tightened bolts, closed lid and allowed it to budge a little. Then lightly twisted front left right corners to make front edge and sides straight line. The slowly and lightly opened hood not to move out of position and tightened bolts little more. Closed and rechecked alignment, was still straight Hooray! Opened 3rd time for final tightening. Remember all parts are very inexpensive so snug but not overtight will keep from snaps. Recommend checking all parts are there and not damaged before assembly. Only item of warning, as with many side box smokers, look at the air vent on the firebox. It is low rather than high. Needs to be that way to properly control heat. After assembly, go to Home Depot or other hardware store and purchase a $3.00 3ft piece of Aluminum Gutter Guard. They are 3ft long and approx. 6" high, very flexible and easy to cut with tin snips. As with any BBQ, smoker, etc with side air vent, I always install a piece of gutter guard on inside of air vent. On this model, you do not want to use a chimney starter and dump coals in when hot. First, this is a slow smoker. To light, place 1 layer of coals inside firebox (not lump charcoal or wood)! Then add a 2nd layer on top of first layer. Do not pyramid stack coals as you want a nice slow burn and no coals in contact with sides of firebox. As first layer burns, ash will fall downwards. 2nd level will light. Pyramid style always has runaway lit coals as pile burns. Not good for unit and with open air vent on firebox, a lit coal or coals could fall out onto ground (deck). Did someone yell Fire?? This is where the Alumi Gutter Guard comes in. Cut a piece 11" wide. Then mark center of width with marker. Now measure 3" on left and right from center mark. Mark line from those points to top corners on each side. Now you have 11" across top edge and 6" centered at bottom. Use tin snips to cut along lines. Place inside firebox, against air vent. Might need to trim little angles on bottom edges to get piece all way to bottom of box. Once that is done comes important part SEASONING. As with any coal cooker, this will burn off mfg debris and coat metal. Pick non windy day to season, only done once. With paintbrush, lightly coat entire inside of firebox and cooking drum (thin layer). Be sure to get every part, bolts, and underside of joints, inside of smoke stack, etc. After all inside parts are covered, rub oil into metal with paper towel, do this lightly so you leave a layer. This will remove any excess oil. Now take paper towels and rub light coat of Canola Oil onto outside of firebox, and cooking drum. Make sure to cover all areas of both + outside of smoke stack. I place a small amount on the legs as well and especially on the underside of firebox and drum. Insert your screen over air flow vent and open vent all the way, same with smoke stack, full open. I recommend you install a $10 BBQ temp gauge on far right side of main hood, just above Char Broil logo. This will give accurate temp at furthest point from heat source. Do not rely on useless top "ideal" gauge, useless as heat rises. This is a small lightweight smoker so you want low heat. For example, when the far right gauge (installed) says 300 degrees, the actual temp at the firebox is 400 degrees on the metal! Anymore than that leads to paint bubbling or peeling off. These are designed for cooking temps about 250-300 degrees so an actual gauge at the cooking grid level is best. You can use it without but never let the temp rise higher than middle position of "ideal" on top gauge". All has to do with the fuel amount and type. First seasoning, you want to start from 0 heat and progressively go up. 50 coals in firebox, in 2 levels. Take a propane torch and light a couple coals thru the firebox air flow door. Then 2 places inside firebox. Close lid and after a few minutes, the coals will slowly light one another. You will start to see smoke out the pores of firebox, under hood and out stack. Remember, this is a $75 cool compact smoker! Monitor the temp as you season. You want 200 for 1 hour, then 250 for 2 hours, finally maintain 275 for a few, then 300 for final hour. After an hour, check on your coals, you will see 2nd layer burning. You adjust temp by moving firebox slider from full open (initially) to almost closed when temp reaches 250. You also will need to close smokestack vent 1/2 way as well. This is how you babysit and regulate temp. Having a degree gauge is a must or remember keep the top gauge no more than middle of "ideal". After 2nd set of coals are almost ash, you will see temp starting to drop. Option 1 is place another layer of coals on top, they will slowly light and temp will come back up relatively quick. Just do not leave firebox door open to long and remember your air flow vents go back to full open until temp rises back to 250. Good way to learn how to control temp is the seasoning process. These are not load it with coals, light and walk away. Unless you want to end up with warped metal and paint peeling. After your heat reaches approx. 250-275, you will slighty smell the canola oil (that is good!. Now maintain that heat so the oil is absorbed into the metal. After an hour of 250-275, raise it to 300 for awhile, then back down to the 250-275. After your 2nd set of coals start to deplete and temp gets closer to 200-225, now is the time to put that layer of coals on top. Or what I did was put 3 CHUNKS of Mesquite on top of the coals. Not enough to create a lot of heat, but they did bring temp up within 5min. And the Mesquite smoke will be added to the oil seasoning. Then kick back, leave doors closed until temp starts to drop again. At that time, fully open vent and smoke stack. Let smoker sit overnight and remove ashes next day. I use a typical fireplace brush, shovel and tin pail which makes cleanup easy. Ashes on this model can only be removed easily from inside firebox. Once removed, wipe ash residue from inside firebox. Also wipe all areas of smoker inside and out with dry paper towels. This will remove any excess oil left over. Remember not to overdue it when applying first coat. Do not use the spray can of canola oil. Use paint brush and oil in bowl, then lightly rub in with paper towels. Initial coat will be perfect that way. You do not want oil seeping out while seasoning so this tip will put right amount to penetrate and do a good seal of metal. Do not try to wipe top inside of main cooking area hood though, leave that one as is. Now that you have cleaned ashes and wiped clean, place a piece of aluminum foil on inside bottom of firebox and inside bottom of cooking drum. This will make cleanup much easier. Did not mean to write a book here but for any first timers with Offset Smokers, these tips are what will make your little cooker last as long as possible for $75. I also use mine for "cold smoking" meat and cheese. There are devices on Amazon that you place flavored wood pellets like hickory, mesquite, etc into the device. Light one end of the unit and the pellets will smolder pure smoke with no other source of heat. Then place your meat, cheese, veggies, etc on the cooking rack and let 'em smoke. One I use all the time is on Amazon, called Amazen. Get the square version and a bag of "cooking pellets" not the heating kind. The square Amazen takes 1 cup of pellets to fill one of the 3 rows. Once the smoke starts, one row (1cup) will smoke for 4 hours. This WILL NOT cook only smoke the food. You place the Amazen in the firebox by itself. I smoke meat, cheese and sweet onions at the same time. All the food items absorb pure smoke. Then you refrigerate the meat until you are ready to cook it. It is pre-smoked at this point. You can also smoke meat and freeze. Months later, when you thaw the meat, all the smoke smell and flavor will still be there. So you can use this little Smoker as a slow smoker cooker AND a cold smoker. It is a great compact version of the larger offset smokers. It is limited to heat tolerance, all in the price. However, even with my high heat large expensive smoker, you still want to smoke cook low and slow. Around the 250 degree range over several hours. After writing all of this, I am not hungry! Hope this helps you decide if this product is right for you. If you are a family of four or have limited space, this is a great buy. But you do have to remember its limitations and especially proper seasoning. Like I said, the seasoning process is an excellent way to learn how to control temp with fuel source and the two air control vents. Here are photos of the screen to keep coals from escaping. What I call a good $3.00 insurance policy. But as with any cooker, never leave it out of site! I knew a Fire Dept Captain who had his gas grill on front porch, cooking away. Went inside for a few, big mistake! Cooking anything with fat or grease on a grill, with meat directly over flame or heat source increases chances of flare-ups. With this style Offset Smoker, since the heat is totally separate, flare-ups never happen. In the case of Mr Fire Captain, he left his grill unattended for just a few minutes. Apparently the meat flared, which leads to flames! Since it was unattended, the flames got out of control that fast! By the time Mr Fire Captain smelled smoke from INSIDE his house, it was already to late. Flames reached wood eaves on front porch, caught roof on fire. Fire Dept 4 miles away but house fully engulfed by the time they arrived. And that was a Fire Captain's house, totaled over chicken wings. So, this is a safer cooker in regards to indirect fuel source. And if you are concerned about drying out meat, etc. you can always stick a water pan on the cooking rack where the firebox heat comes out. But that is usually if you cook high heat and fast. Low and slow makes meat tasty, tended (fall off the bone). Remember this is a charcoal cooker, so use pure charcoal as primary fuel source to keep heat down. You can certainly top the coals with wood chips (soaked in water first) or inside the aluminum pouch with air holes or a couple smaller pieces of "chunk" cooking wood. This will give you the smoked flavor as well as charcoal flavor. I do the pre-smoke with the Amazen first for 2 hours. Then I start the charcoal cooking project after that, with the meat already infused with pecan, cherry, hickory, oak, etc. Sorry about writing a novel here, but I have read good and bad reviews as with many products. It is important to know what you are purchasing, why and how it will be used. This item is ideal on a nice day, where you want to take 1/2 a day to cook your meat for dinner. Eventually, it becomes a hobby. Hope my tips help and don't forget with any cooker with side vents that run on anything other than propane, install the aluminum shields. Trust me on that one! When we purchased our home, people marveled at out beautiful deck. It is the material which looks like wood but last years. Well, I was using my BBQ and 1 coal somehow slipped outside its area and onto the deck. I scrambled to pick it up barehanded, ouch! Then it burned thru our expensive deck in 2 places. So I sanded and filled with stainable wood putty. Unfortunately after it dried, would not take stain! Two large tan circles on dark brown deck. Right where you come out dining room door! And no way to hide what I had done from my wife! You can fill in blanks on what she thought! All that over 1 runaway coal. So, that is my only negative on all smoker with air vents! Have not seen one with a screen so the aluminum shields work perfect.

So I have made a killer rib eye on it and tried to burn it down with a couple rib eyes cooking at 600 F. Gotta figure out a little better method of catching drippings as they will catch on fire and you have a runaway! But you can make a great rib eye. Ribs, every set has turned out awesome, everything from low and slow to a high temp cook process on them. Probably made 8 racks of great ribs. Wasn’t impressed with the hamburgers on it but will try again later. Made a pretty good brisket but used Rudy’s rub as I like their store sandwiches and I don’t have the method down. Next one will be back to salt and a touch of pepper. Chicken thighs (thighs are the perfect chicken part for Q, their rather uniform thickness makes getting them all consistent and cooked even a slam dunk) with a light coat of mustard and Tony Chachere’s lightly sprinkled is to die for. Simply squeeze them when they should be close and if the juice is clear, no pink or red they are perfect. If you cook the juice out, well they make decent tasting blotter paper 🙁 Pretty much killed a spatchcocked turkey for Thanksgiving, good thing the wife made an over baked one too. It did make great gumbo though as does the blotter paper chicken if you ruin any thighs or the whatever chicken. Also have a pile of hot links I put on at 180 for 2 to 3 hours. They are great for reheat with sauerkraut and roasted pabs or in the gumbo. Hot links should be a staple, ha ha! Gotta try my great pulled pork on it and we do Prudhomme pizza sauce on a Brown Eyed Baker crust and this Pro should rock it! Royal Gourmet BBQ Charcoal Grill with Offset Smoker, 30'' L, New Process Paint Not ... Outdoor & Patio We purchased a Weber gas grill in June 2014. I immediately registered it Potato Salad Hey Dan – I think you’d really up your versatility with a good pellet smoker. Smoke profiles seem to depend largely on the quality of pellets used and then also on the burn consistency of the fire pot. What I mean here is that many pellet smoker users tell me that they prefer models that cycle over faster with frequent temp checks rather than those with longer wait times between temp checks. Cycling faster means that pellets burn more consistently and do not rest to a “charred” state and they “reactivate” This latter problem sometimes results in less than optimal flavor. Yoder smokers cycle very fast and are preferred by many due to this and their thicker metal construction. The dream machine is the one that can do it all, high temperature searing and low and slow smoke roasting. The fact is that you can pretty easily adapt any grill for smoking and many smokers can grill and sear, but sadly few do both as well as the monotaskers. read more Best of 2018 Panasonic ES2207P Women’s Electric Shaver Review More in Equipment and Materials, Reviews, Sidebar Featured Hey Ben!

Top Smokers Having selected the gas grills I believed to be the most promising, I could move on to the most important part, which was the tests. Before I started writing a review for all those gas grills, I had to properly test them all. That way I spent some time ( few days ) testing gas grills in order to find their upsides and downsides. Just for the purpose of testing, I divided the grills into groups so that they could all fit a particular price range. It is obvious that a gas grill in a lower price range will significantly differ when compared with a premium class model that costs several times as much. That’s why I created groups for the sake of unbiased and fair testing. Topped with pulled pork, cheddar cheese, onion slice and Zesty BBQ Sauce on a gluten-free bun.
