Yoder's Loaded Wichita 20" offset smoker is made in the USA from new 1/4" pipe and plate. The large 20" diameter and 42” long cooking chamber with a 22" long offset fire box provide about 1600 square inches of cook surface. The main cooking chamber has beaucoup BBQ real estate with 750 square inches of cooking surface, the slide out shelf adds 518 square inches and there is an... Read More

In 2013 Backwoods introduced their G2 line, a revision and upgrade of their superb BBQ smokers. The G2 Chubby is the smallest model, although larger than the original Backwoods Chubby. G2 models are made from a heavier 20 gauge corrosion resistant steel and powder coated in black only. This should make sure rust is never a problem. Here's a Backwoods Smoker video from our pal, Malcom... Read More

This mid-sized pellet smoker is comparable in capacity to Traeger's popular Lil' Tex Elite, but much more sophisticated and easy to find for well below its list price. It's one of the few pellet smokers we've seen with an ash removal system. Although pellets don't create much ash, they need regular cleaning, which is a pain on most other designs because the greasy grates and drip pan... Read More

PlaceholderVery large black charcoal grill with a big crank on the right side that raises and lowers the cooking grate.
The Stahlkammer 2000 is as solid and beautiful as the smaller Braten 1000. It has almost 8 square feet of cooking space, but it lacks the offset firebox of the Braten. To cook indirect you can build a fire and push it all against one side and get a similar effect. These are not kept in stock and are built to order. These big Engelbrecht cookers have some unusual, nifty features. Chief... Read More

PlaceholderShiny stainless steel pellet smoker with lid up. A wood pellet hopper on the left has the lid up and there is a chimney on the right.
  In the beginning pellet cookers were used mostly as smokers because they didn't really have high temperature grilling ability. After more than a decade of design revisions, most pellet burners still cannot do both well. Introduced in 2010, the Fast Eddy's by Cookshack PG1000 takes an innovative approach to being both a low and slow smoker and a fast cooking grill. The PG1000 is a... Read More

The Green Mountain Grills Daniel Boone is their most popular model. Green Mountain includes some features not common in lower price pellet smokers and that often cost extra even in higher cost cookers. There's a standard meat probe feature that reports the internal temperature of what's being cooked to the controller read-out, a low pellet alarm, a work surface on both sides, and tool... Read More

The Grilla pellet smoker sure catches your eye. We always liked Grilla, but the original MSRP of $1,600 seemed steep. We felt a premium was being placed on the cool cosmetics. In 2016 Grilla Grills made a substantial price cut and it can now be purchased factory direct for $799 with free shipping. That drew us off the fence and into the jungle. Form does follow function in some aspects... Read More

Grilla Grills’ full-sized Silverbac pellet cookers are solid, well-built and well thought out pieces of BBQ equipment. Grilla introduced their popular, industry first, vertical round pellet grill known as the original “Grilla” in 2010. Silverbac reverts to the more common horizontal rectangular grill shape, and according to their website, it has become the new “patriarch of the Grilla... Read More
