My favorite cooking style is an ole fashioned stick burner, followed by charcoal with some wood chips tossed on top


1. Stick burner
2. Charcoal
3. Cast iron

Whatís yalls?

Btw, I had a Masterbuilt electric smoker years ago. I had it for maybe a year and could never get the slightest smoke flavor. I gave it away

Iíve heard great things about the Egg style cookers

I love an old school stick burner but after using my traeger, Iím a convert. That thing can plain cook. Not just for smoking but I crank it up and grill with it as well. Just like anything it has its place, I use charcoal, gas and a skillet as well. Just depends on what Iím cooking.

The art of BBQ is running a fire. Stick burner all the way.

I agree, everything else is a little easier and less tasteful

Nothing replaces a fire

I prefer oak

Pellet (Traeger) lets me use a variety of wood for grilling/smoking different things. Used Alder yesterday for Salmon and Bacon wrapped Scallops.
Gasser (Weber Genesis) with side burner for grilling at a hotter temp and the side burner works great for Cast iron cooking. Did Blackened Shrimp yesterday to go with the Salmon and Scallops.

Wood, cast, charcoal, gas if I have to.

If I ever start vaping and wearing skinny jeans I'll go buy a pellet pooper and a 6.5 Creedmoor..

I only grill twice a week except for the exceptions. That amounts to a total of about 15 minutes per week of actual grilling. No way will I ever spend 2 hours getting my coals ready..

Itís the trip not the destination Bill

A good pile of hot coals is nice

Add a small oak log and choke the damper down and bingo, roll coal

I understand that but its so sad to watch perfect coals go to waste after you are done.

It has to be born in you; for Bill itís not. Itís like a great hobby, either you like it or you donít. No big deal either way, but I think my wood fired food will beat the taste of any other method, especially gas. And I can get a cooking fire going in 3 minutes.

Thereís no comparison as far as flavor, wood/coals always wins....and Bill you donít have to waste your coals. Using wood or lump charcoal, just hit the coals with a water hose and use whatís left the next time.

Thanks, it seems to be a very forgiving cut

For 10 lbs of pork belly

I did about 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup standard seasoning of choice and right at 250į for 3 1/2 hours

Then I pulled and sauced a sweet bbq sauce in a pan for another 30

I mowed about 3 acres in that time and wasnít just on it the whole time, so itís not a difficult cook

Next time, Iíd like to make some spicy, some sweet

I really wanted to like the Treager for its simplicity for doing small cooks and not having to fire up the stick burner. Never could get any smoke or flavor from it

Surprising to hear. I think it turns out just as good if not better than running my traditional smoker. I cook more steaks/chicken on the traeger than anything. Really noticeable difference in flavor.
