Kamado Joe Classic II 18” is a well-crafted ceramic cooker that presents strong competition to other 18" models in the premium priced market. Classic II improves on their previous ClassicJoe 18” with a number of remarkable upgrades that exemplify the elegance and innovation that are hallmarks of Kamado Joe. Read on to get the details. Kamado Joe first caught our attention in 2014 with... Read More

The Karubecue C-60 Pit is a very innovative, wood burning smoker designed to help the greenest novice smoke meats like a wizened Texas pit boss. The smoke quality from this machine is astonishing. I call the aroma Karubouquet. At its crux is a patented Inverted Flame Firebox (IFF) which sucks heat and smoke from underneath a wood fire, not the top. Heavy smoke, laden with gases and...

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

MAK Grills have the distinction of being Meathead's favorite pellet smokers. He tested their 1 Star General and 2 Star General Residential Pellet Smokers. MAK also makes a large double firepot 3 Star General. Here is Meathead's review on the 1 Star General. Introduced in fall 2010, the 1 Star is a real star, and it sells for about $1,700, $1000 less than the 2 Star. In 2016 MAK made a... Read More

MAK Grills have the distinction of being Meathead's favorite pellet smokers. He tested their 1 Star General and 2 Star General Residential Pellet Smokers. MAK also makes a large double firepot 3 Star General and a commercial size 4 Star General. Here is Meathead's review on the 2 Star General. The MAK is definitely well thought out and well built. The most important feature is its... Read More

Vertical gas smokers make smoking meats easy. Affordable price tags, ease of use and great results combine to make them some of the most popular residential smokers on the market. They don't require electricity, the vertical structure leaves a small footprint on your deck, and even a novice pitmaster or pitmistress can quickly begin impressing friends and family. With the new... 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

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
