PlaceholderA large pink metal pig on four wheels.
The Lil' Pig is a novelty smoker that consists of Traeger's Lil' Tex Elite dressed up to look like a pink pig. On the upside it has a digital controller and an eye catching appearance that Traeger believes is sure to make your guests "squeal". BUT it weighs and costs twice as much as an Elite. Be that as it may, from a functional standpoint it should produce good results. Digital,... Read More

Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet is at it again. Just when we thought we'd seen everything in the world of kamados, Kalamazoo unveils their striking Shokunin Kamado Grill. Shokunin, Japanese for "master" or "artisan", is rectangular with an 18 inch x 24 inch primary cook surface and an extended height. We've long been fans of oval kamados like Primo and Komodo Kamado because the elongated,... Read More

This smallest model will fit nicely in any back yard, but don't be surprised to see them popping up at BBQ competitions as well. Outside dimensions are 32" tall including the stack, 22.5" deep, and 22" wide. The cooking chamber is 13" high, 17" deep, and 16" wide.  There are 4 removable racks 16.5" x 15.5" separated by 3" and it comes with two extra shelf sliders for more flexible... Read More

The Broil King Keg has been discontinued and replaced by the Broil King Keg 5000. Click here to read our review of the BKK 5000. The Broil King Keg is a high quality kamado cooker, at home in the backyard or hitched to a vehicle. It excels at smoking, roasting, baking and searing thin meats. While competitive brands charge extra for just about everything but the logo, The Keg comes... Read More

FIRECRAFT APPEARS TO BE OUT OF BUSINESS. The FireCraft Pellet Q-450 is a mid-size, stainless steel pellet smoker. In addition to being made almost entirely of stainless steel it has a couple other unique features. Foremost is an impressive optional sear station. Although they are often called pellet grills, most lack the ability to effectively achieve high temperature searing. FireCraft... Read More

GOGALLEY IS OUT OF BUSINESS Meathead's Hands On Review of GoGalley. GoGalley Eagle 100 Grill: The Best Large Portable Rig Ever I'm a big football fan, an undersized high school linebacker who even did spring training with the University of Florida Gators as Paper Gator when I was sports editor of the campus paper (click the link to read about my dubious record at the Swamp...

PlaceholderLarge red oval shaped kamado cooker with shiny steel bands at the top and shiny steel opening at the bottom
This model has been discontinued and replaced by The Kamado Joe Classic II 18". Click here for our detailed review of Classic II.   Kamado Joe ClassicJoe is an elegant, well-crafted ceramic cooker that presents strong competition to other 18" models in the premium priced market. They pay attention to detail and offer upgrades like top quality 304 stainless steel cooking grates as... Read More
PlaceholderShiny stainless steel grill with shelves on each side, mounted on four legs small wheels.
THE MEMPHIS SELECT LINE HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED. The Memphis Select is the smallest in their line of luxury pellet smokers. It is similar to the Advantage but lacks the side shelves (they are optional), and the lower shelf. The cooking grates are 0.25" nickel plated rods, and the warming grate space is smaller. Otherwise it has the double wall cooking chamber, the digital controller with... Read More
PlaceholderHorizontal barrel smoker with red lid and black bottom on a four legged cart with four wheels and a bottom shelf. There is a shelf on the left with an electric control panel and a chimney on the right.
THIS MODEL IS DISCONTINUED. REC TEC OFFERS SOME NEW MODELS WITH SIMILAR FEATURES. REC TEC Grills RT-680 basic body is very similar to Traeger's Texas Grill. Both are large pellet smokers for just under $1000, but REC TEC offers significant upgrades. Instead of the Ortech style dial controller employed by Traeger, REC TEC's touch pad, proportional-integral-derivative controller (PID... Read More
PlaceholderTall black upright barrel with a chimney on top and large handle on the right side. A smaller horizontal barrel is attached to the bottom left. It is mounted on two legs and two large wheels.
On October 8, 2015, Brinkmann filed for Chapter 11 under the US bankruptcy code.  The Brinkmann Trailmaster 57" Vertical Smoker is one of the few Vertical Offsets on the market. We advise readers to avoid purchasing cheap horizontal barrel offsets, but this inexpensive vertical smoker mitigates the basic design flaw of horizontal offsets: heat travels upward not sideways. The vertical... Read More
