The Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new location and check out the museum! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Just curious how many different brands of Smokers are represented

I have 2 BGE's (XL and small), a Jambo Backyard and a Backwoods Patio. I was looking at a Weber Smokey Joe the other day and wondered if anyone else was as crazy as me!

    I still have & use my 18 1/2" WSM.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    I really lust after the jambo backyard model. The only thing that keeps me from pulling the trigger is the fact that it's almost impossible to find wood here without driving a long distance.

    My Smokey Joe I use weekly after softball games. I was bringing my small to games but became too much of a hassle. Especially when it's only for brats and burgers.

    My other grill is a 1950's Royal Chef pig grill. Never used. Can't find much info on it. I did read somewhere that they could be won as a grand prize at certain carnivals. Saw it on Craigslist and had to have it. Sits in my living room as a decoration.

    The pig disappears every once in awhile from the living room. I think she thinks I'm going to forget about it. Which usually happens. It's a good conversation piece. Plus I don't ever hear anyone wanting to talk about her decorations in the family room! :-\"

    @r2egg2q, how do you like you uds? I was thinking of that before I got my egg. I'm happy with my choice between the two. Seems like lots of work, but low initial cost.

    It is a decent cooker but it hardly gets used (not sure I've used it this year). It is more portable than my XL or L Eggs but not as efficient. The vast majority of my cooking is done on the Eggs.

    How do you like the Blackstone? Saw one at Tastylicks and it seemed to produce really nice results with a quick startup time. Have read mixed reviews online regarding durability.

    I actually have two lemon trees but they aren't for smoking. Most of the wood you find out here is eucalyptus.

    DMW, I have 2.  I used them doing a food booth this summer and never had a problem. I couldn't tell you how many pies I put out over the summer. I like it so much I bought another one sitting in the box just in case they quit making them..lol  We cranked out 10 inch pies and took only about 2 to 2:30 min to cook. I never had a problem and they look just as they did when I took them out of the box.  The rotisserie that turns the stone is just a typical one you find for your BBQ and are interchangeable. I bout a couple back ups but never needed them either. I use a sourdough with no sugar or oil and have had great results.

  • Other than the eggs, I have a bubba keg, two WSM's (22.5" and 14.5"), and a weber ranch kettle (37.5"). Those are the ones I will admit to.

    @WeberWho- that pig grill was on Pawn Stars.  It had a rotisserie and they purchased it for like $375.  Season 6 Episode 7 if you are interested.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.
