My Ride 1:'05 Two Tone Cherry SEEG

My Ride 2:'98 Anniversary Road King
« on: March 30, 2009, 11:17:46 AM »

I know a few of you are experts at the art of BBQ.  We love to eat it, but are not so patient with the preparation of it and are always looking at the different cooker choices available.  Saw a cute little pink pig cooker and just had to share.

Is it "Art Deco" or is it a barbecue? You decide, because our Lil'Pig smokes and cooks just like any other Traeger grill. With 418 sq. inches of cooking surface, and internal hopper, stainless steel door handle, multi-position digital thermostat control, and viper casters, this grill is sure to raise a "squeal" from your guests.

Model; BBQPIG

BTUs; 36,000
Unit Wgt.; 240 lbs.
Unit Dimen.; 45H x 55W x 21D

Candy, I've seen this cooker in action.  The smoke comes out of the nose of the pig.  It has a low speed auger feed like a pellet stove and uses hardwood pellets for the fire.  You can literally "set it and forget it".

Hee heee, a fire breathing hog.  Who'd of thunk it?

Of course, I found it intriquing because it was so cute.  Jamey sent me a link to the Traeger grill site and of course, I loved the pig right away.  He was trying to point out something else.  Then I saw the price... Oh My!

But seriously, we are looking for a new cooker and want the best of all worlds.  Everybody knows that gas is not the purest way to go, but I gotta tell you, when I'm trying to make dinner in 20 minutes or less, gas is the ticket! 

We want to be able to gas BBQ, wood BBQ - pellets could be OK, but a 'Q' that can do it all is what we want to buy. 

If we are hanging round the house for the day, putting something on that is slow burn friendly is fantastic. 

If I am understanding you right Jim, you are saying the pellets with the contant feed pellets is actually feasable for someone like myself.  Set it and forget it, eh?

Thought maybe out the other end! Jim, have you ever used pellets? I never have, just wondering how they work, what is used to bind them together. The auger systems are really a set and forget system. I've seen them in use at a local store, they gave me a taste of the meat they were smoking, didn't have much smoke taste, but that might not have anything to do with the pellets.

Recommend the Traeger Grill and their pellet supplies 100%.  I've had mine for a little over a year and the difference between it and my 40 year favorite (Texas twin barrel w/ offset woodbox) is amazing.  The auger supply box will hold enough pellets for about 14 hours when the grill is set on medium, 275 or about 18 hours set on smoke, 200.  They have about a dozen wood pellet varieties, but I use mesquite almost exclusively.  Some like the hickory, but to my taste it doesn't come close to real bbq with mesquite.  Once in a while, I use the apple for certain pork cuts, especially breakfast meats.  The actual cost per bbq is negligible with the cost of the pellets.  A real relief from having to ship mesquite in from Tx every month or so. 

Best feature is constant temperature and constant, even smoke.  Once you've got your hours/pounds figured out you can start it up in the AM and put it on auto pilot for all day.  I usually smoke my briskets around 12 hours (18 lb) and never check them until I take them off.  Best I've ever used and are getting very popular for competitions.

Candy if you are considering cost and versatility together you can't go wrong with a Weber 22.5" grill with a BBQ Baffle (http://prostores1.carrierzone.com/stores/b/bbqbaffle.com/cataloglist.html) or Smokenator (http://www.smokenator.com/) accessory.  Make sure to get the optional cooking grid on the Weber that has the flip up sides to allow access to your charcoal and wood chunks.  Go with the Platinum series that has the side table and ash pan and the rack with the flip up sides is included.  I've got less than $250 invested in mine.

I've done 6 racks of ribs with my weber and BBQ baffle (that will feed 18).  There is plenty of room for 2 butts (14-16 lbs of pulled pork) or 1 full sized brisket.  You still have access to cook directly over the coals for sausage, steaks, chicken, corn etc.

Oh yeah, since I got my Weber and smoker accessory I almost never use my $1,000 gas grill or $1,100 smoker.

Well let me throw my 2 cents in here. If you cook with propane you are GRILLING. If you cook with wood or charcoal you can do either grill or smoke. For steaks and chicken most people would grill. I have a propane grill and yes I do use it. But when I want BBQ I fire up one of my smokers with real apple wood and cook low and slow.

Candy you and Jamie need to come to Dc this year for Rolling Thunder. We are doing a BBQ for riders coming into the city for the event. I think the date of the BBQ is May 23rd at 2225 M St NW at Engine 1's quarters. I promise you some good "Q"

Be Safe
