PlaceholderBlack barrel shaped pellet smoker with stainless steel hood. A small gas grill is attached to the right side.
Camp Chef's Woodwind Pellet Smoker is a quality smoker and super searing grill wrapped up in one. Though often referred to as pellet grills, most are smokers with limited grilling capability at best. In 2017 Camp Chef introduced their optional LP gas Sear Box which can be added onto all of their current SmokePro Pellet Smokers. Woodwind is a package deal that comes standard with the... Read More

Meathead had a chance to cook on The Braten 1000. Here is his review: This time the Obamas got it right. In March 2012 they gave the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, and his wife, a very cool gift, a $1,900 wood and charcoal-burning grill and BBQ smoker combo, made, where else, in Obama's home state, Illinois. Last time the Obamas didn't do so well. They gave Cameron's predecessor... Read More

PlaceholderCharcoal grill with a black box lower half and shiny steel hood. The hood is open showing large quantity of food inside and on a shelf in front and on the left side. Under the left side shelf is a hand crank. A bucket of ice with beverages sits to the left on the floor and a bag of charcoal is on the right.
Meathead loves Hasty-Bake! Here is his review: Bottom line: I have never worked with a finer charcoal grill. They may be out there, but I've never encountered them. Please do not confuse this superb cooker with the Easy-Bake Oven toy for kids! This is a real grownup serious charcoal cooker. There is nothing you can't do with this grill and it deserves a place in the back yard of every... Read More

PlaceholderBig, black horizontal barrel smoker with a tall chimney on the left side and a large fire barrel on the right. A big metal bar on two steel pipes is connected to the top. The bottom has a storage shelf and two large wheels.
Horizon manufactures excellent, tight, well-built, heavyweight, heavy duty, horizontal offset firebox cookers that carry a lifetime guarantee against burnout! They are constructed from all new, high grade steel and cooking chambers are built from 1/4" thick structural pipe to tight tolerances. Remember, heavy steel holds heat longer, distributes heat more evenly, cooks better, and uses... Read More

The K750HS is Kalamazoo's mid-size model with 726 square inches of primary cook surface, three immense Dragon Burners and one Infrared Rotisserie Burner. All models were redesigned in 2012 for a sleeker, less industrial look. In keeping with their motto, "Never Compromise", Kalamazoo continues to overbuild with top quality 304, heavy gauge stainless steel. The K750 weighs about 600... Read More

The most striking cookers in the world may be Komodo Kamado. Their new gigantic Big Bad 32 incher is stunning to see, touch and use. Weighing in at over a half ton crated with 128 lbs. of 304 stainless steel, it arrives fully assembled, but you'll need help opening this up and getting it into position. The first thing you notice is how well built this zaftig sweetheart is. From the... Read More

PlaceholderLarge, long horizontal barrel smoker with two doors mounted on a rack with two large wheels on the right. A tall chimney comes out of the top right side.
Lang's 36" Hybrid Patio Smoker combines their popular 36" residential smoker with a 30" charcoal grill. We always give thumbs down to those low cost combo cookers that consist of a gas grill bolted to a cheap offset smoker because each side is poor quality, neither side performs well, and you can get better equipment by purchasing a separate grill and smoker. Not so with Lang's Hybrid.... Read More

PlaceholderLarge black boxy charcoal grill with shiny steel shelf attached to each side. Fire box door with latch is on the lower left side. A hand crank is on the right side.
M Grill's M1 charcoal/wood cooker plants a reverse flow smoker and charcoal grill under one lid. Weighing in at 385 pounds of thick 10 gauge coated steel and high quality 304 stainless steel, this versatile, heavy metal machine should hold temperature stabile and remain in service for many years. There are two choices for fuel placement: the firebox for smoking, and a separate... Read More

PlaceholderLarge black charcoal grill with lid up to show shiny steel cook surface with several slabs of ribs. It is on green grass with a wood fence in the background.
Although it can handle a small hog, Meadow Creek's PR36 does much more. This is one versatile cooker. There is a deep trough and a tall lid with a solid strong hinge. A tray for charcoal hangs inside the trough 6" below the grate. Load it up and you can bring coal very close to the food for a quick hot sear. Or, if you wish, coals can be placed right on the bottom of the trough. You can... Read More

PlaceholderLarge shiny stainless steel grill with shelves on each side, mounted on a cart two doors and small wheels.
The Memphis Elite, launched in March 2012, is the largest BBQ cooker in their impressive line of luxury pellet smokers. Memphis Pellet Smokers are extremely well built and designed.  We tested the Memphis Pro and Meathead himself proclaimed it, "one of the best cookers I've ever had the pleasure to use". They may be ordered as drop-ins for installation or on a cart. Our posted price... Read More

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
