As someone who loves to grill, rotisserie and smoke meat, this is something I've wanted for a while. Traeger started it all,



But now there are other options:



Anyone have a wood pellet smoker/grill?

I love the food they produce, but don't like to put in the time it takes to smoke meat.  A crock pot seems so much easier.  :P

yeah, a smoker is for lazy people, like me. I think these new pellet smokers auto feed themselves, so you don't have to quite be on top of it all the time.

I love eating but hate cooking. The smoker works great for a bachelor. A BBQ backup kills 2 birds with one stone unless one is just plain frugal. Just don't plan a meal for 20.

I've had to learn to cook for myself for 2 1/2 years now.  I've learned a lot.  Always been good on the smoker, but I've learned how to make side dishes like squash casserole, baked macaroni, southern style, and scalloped potatoes, etc. I can make a good catfish stew and deer cubed steak and onions.  Thank goodness for the internet !!!  Particularly, Food Network and New York Times recipes.

You are doing well! There is no easy recipe. It takes work. I am from a long way away. Good food is good!

Mrs. Hemibeers got me a smoker for christmas, birthday, anniversery, or some gift exchange event, a few years ago. My initial thought was 'why do i need to start cooking dinner 6-8 hours before dinner?'. I think she wanted smoked meats much more than me. If it takes more than 15 minutes on a grill, I lose my patience.

I ended up selling the f***ing thing 3 months later on craigslist, still in the unopened box. Call me a terrible person, but if I don't want to use something, I don't buy it. I just don't like spending money on shit that I know I won't use. Family has finally figured out my raging pragmatism the last few years.

BTW my brother was on The Price is Right a few years ago and won a bigass smoker. Yeah the meat tastes good, but not worth babysitting for hours.
