For years, I have been using a Pitts & Spitts offset stickburner (the Ultimate Upright Smoker Pit, 36 inch), so I was eager to test their set-it-and-forget-it pellet version. I was not disappointed, although all cookers have... Read More

The Good-One Heritage Oven is designed as an Outdoor Kitchen Insert. Although it looks like their large Marshall smoker that has an upper cabinet oven with three adjustable height racks, it is more related to their popular Open Range model and has an identical firebox. There are ten different mounting positions for the racks and an additional rack may be purchased. The design is driven... Read More

The Good-One Patio Junior is their smallest BBQ smokers: a mini version of their popular Open Range. This cleverly designed charcoal unit uses the same concepts of an offset smoker, but it works better. There is a front firebox and grill that has two air intakes and a damper that runs the entire length of the firebox that controls smoke and heat to the smokebox. The wide damper provides... Read More

In 2017 Traeger introduced Timberline; a technologically advanced wood pellet smoker with a sturdy design and a muscular look and feel unlike anything in their extensive catalog. Instead of a barrel shaped smokebox, Timberline has stadium or race track shaped sides with a super high-profile hood to accommodate a low, middle and high rack.

The hardest part of cooking with charcoal is getting the cooking chamber to the right temperature and keeping it there. The pit master's art is a balancing act, carefully regulating airflow and feeding fuel to keep the temp from see-sawing up and down.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

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.
