It was on sale so I had to buy it for $199.00. 1/2 price at Wally World so go find it if you need one. This thing comes with a 5 year warranty and I added another 2 years through Walmart for $16.  Enter your zipcode and snag one!! https://brickseek.co....?sku=876324460

 

This thing is huge, it has 5 racks 22" wide by 14" deep, big enough to hold full size aluminum pans. There's no electric or gas heat, it actually burns the pellets.

 

I broke it in last night with a rack of ribs smoked 1.5 hours at 300 using hickory pellets, 1 hour wrapped and 30 minutes unwrapped, not bad for 3 hour ribs. I didn't trim the rack and the dog loved the tips!! There was only a slight smoke flavor but next time I'll follow directions and actually smoke them instead of baking them.

 

This this also cooks up to 450F so I'll also try a few pizzas.

Maybe it's just in the South but I would keep checking every week, eventually they'll make them down to move them.

I checked a few states and found some marked down up to North Carolina, it must be a regional thing.

$199 is a great price on that.  I've got 3 smokers already but at that price I'd still buy it.

YIPES, that one is 396 here. Too much for an old man on a fixed income(I’m fixing it so I leave no money behind)!

I wonder if Wal-Mart will price match themselves.

What zip code do you put in for the 199 price?

Try showing the receipt, maybe it'll help convince the MGR to mark it down.

I played with the new toy again today. Smoked a chicken at 275 for about 3 hours, thigh temp was 178 when I pulled it. It was juicy as can be and tender but I need to work on getting the skin crispy.

 

I tied up the legs and wings to cook it on a stand and this happened.

Besides the ugly man boobs the chicken was awesome. Very moist!

I also had roasted squash, beans and corn to get my vitamins in. That's a thigh cut in half next to the squash and sliced breast on the side, both were like butter.

That chicken is definitely JUICY! It sometimes doesn't show up in pics but I can see it here!

And those beans look kick ass too. Yum!

Yesterday was nasty, windy and cold but the smoker held up and it was nice not having to load wood and tend a fire. This was more of a test cook to see how it works on the smoke setting before I try sausage and it didn't disappoint. 
 
I made tasso and smoked it for 6 hours. It's packed up and ready to use, I'll use some today in a gumbo for the Saints game.
 
I made a brine and let it sit for 2 days then seasoned it heavy and into the smoke bath.

The result is a spicy cured ham that's used more like a seasoning than a meat. It's great in beans, jambalaya, gumbo and greens. It doesn't take much to give a dish a seasoned smokey flavor.

RG. Would you share a more detailed breakdown on the Tasso? I have faked my own recipe for it in the past, and it was good but I would love to make a more true style version.

Cut of pork used. Maybe Seasoning ingredient main hitters if you don't want to give out exact proportions.

I bet that would be good in split pea soup.... with cajun croutons.
