We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
I'd say it depends on how many "low and slow" cooks you do. I have a Stoker, and have had it for about 3 years. I'm glad I have it, but if it broke and I had to buy a new one, I probably wouldn't. That's because I only use it on briskets (20+ hour cooks) and I don't do that but about twice a year. It's hard to justify that kind of cost.
I could hire Mickey to stay up all night with the brisket for a lot cheaper.
