An Honest Review.

So today was the first time I’ve cooked at an event with the smoke Staxx pans, and overall I’d say they are a killer product.   What I liked is very simple I was able to cook a ton of food on a large egg.   I Know this isn’t earth shattering as there are many ways to skin a cat, but these things just made sense to me.  

 Fist, I cooked  the  Mac & cheese below my meatloaf but I had even distribution of smoke and heat even with the other pan stacked on top.

Secondly, I liked the fact my meatloaf and bacon dripping were contained well below my meatloaf.  The pans can hold a  liter of liquid before it comes in contact wth the meat.

Thirdly because they are  heavy cast aluminum they held and radiated the heat for manny hours after I pulled them off of the egg.  This was nice for serving the  Mac & cheese because it truly stayed hot for hours.   

Now for the things I wish were a little different 
first you have to set them directly on the platesetter so I had to improvise an air gap with AF.  So if you want to stack them in a large you need to remember you need a spacer.  

Secondly the groves in the in the bottom of the pan while nice for keeping your meat out of it juices, could be a pain to serve sides out of.   

Overall, I like the product and feel that it is worth the spend for me.   I have no affiliation with the company other than I met the guys who’ve designed it.  Is this product a must have, well I honestly can’t answer that for you, but for me I’m glad I have 2 of them coming my direction.  

Feel free to PM if you have any questions.
