My experience with a highly rated Camp Chef was that it sucked ass, even with an smoke tube added

Looks like a POS Chinese ripoff of a Traeger.

It's the only brand I'd buy if I were considering another pellet smoker.

So, pork tenderloins yesterday for the christening. Amazing. I marinated them in an orange blossom honey marinade, with a little raspberry jalapeno sauce in it, then added a rub with bourbon smoked sugar and some brown sugar and other spices. Enough of the marinade stuck to it to make a great glaze.

Today, a brisket flat, with a store-bought brisket rub. I didn't feel like cooking a 13 lb brisket for 19 hours, so I halved it, the flat should take less time. Hopefully, the rain holds off.

This set and forget shit rocks.

We got ourselves one for Christmas. Absolutely love it. Have done beef, pork, chicken, fish and Vegetables. It meets our condo rules since the ignition source is electric and it heats up faster than a regular electric grill. Have got a pork loin marinating for later today.

I've only had BBQ from 2 pellet grills, neither Traeger, and neither had any kind of significant smoke flavor. You really couldn't even tell it was smoked. Didn't matter how expensive the pellets were. I still like the idea of it, but I'd have to try food from one before spending that kind of money.

People do win competitions with Traeger's, but I'm still skeptical. Judges at competitions have weird/stupid criteria and ideas of what is great BBQ. Even the competitors and so called experts say how they smoke for judges is not how they do it at home.

My neighbor has a pellet grill (not sure of brand) and has the same lack of smoke flavor.

Competitions, especially small ones, are bullshit. I'm still a little pissed about the rib cook I competed in. Put out some of the best ribs that I have ever cooked and got 13th out of 15.

Look at this smoke ring. Plenty of smoke flavor from my non-traeger.

Kind of a light smoke ring for a brisket. How long was it on the smoker?

The smoke ring is little more than a chemical reaction caused by a variety of factors, from moisture to the type of wood. It's really not indicative of the flavor of the product. A huge misconception that, mostly, restaurants use as a selling point to people who think their food is going to be awesome because of a smoke ring they see on commericals.

It was just the flat, so about 5 hrs. The thin end was almost all smoke ring.

My poor drum smoker is going to get a workout in a couple of weeks. My wife's family asked me to cook for their reunion. Two 15lb briskets and two big boston butts.
