I am/was a BBQ purist. Wood only, blah blah blah.

My wife (no pics) bought me a Lousiana 680 pellet grill for my birthday (at my cost, I signed on as a dealer last week).

Holy shit this thing is bad ass. I may never touch wood again. Last night I smoked some chicken, and it came out perfect. I thought there was no way a smoker could char a steak properly. I was way wrong. I cranked that bitch up on high, and produced the BEST porterhouse I have ever eaten. The grill temp at the char area was pushing 1000 degrees. Going to order the cold smoke kit for it Monday.

Best grill/smoker I have ever used.

I know, CSB.

New York, Artichoke, salad, and garlic cheddar taters.

This is the correct answer.  It is not BBQ unless it has beans in it.


Hmmm, something seems amiss here

I have a top of the line Kenmore gas grill for quick veggies, dogs, etc. The pellet rig is just as easy/fast. I'll probably stack the gas grill.

I've considered ditching my WSM for the Traeger they have at Costco right now for $399.  Still requires too much tending.  I know there are pit tenders out there for the WSM but meh.  I have better things to do.

Well that's good, I guess. Have you continued your endeavors to make money cooking BBQ, or do you just do it for your own love now?

1000 degrees damn. I have trouble cooking steaks over about 800, it just moves too fast for me. I always chuckle that people think you can get a proper sear with gas.

I opened a commercial turf dealership (been in the industry for years). BBQ is a hobby again.

Good lawd that's a lotta money for some heat.  

I'll take a dozen Weber kettles and my UDS I made for $5.  

Looks pretty cool.  Just out of my budget for a grill.

There's that saying about doing what you love for a living not really being work. Hogwash I say. Turning what you love into a living turns it into a job. I say you're better off.

I will admit, I wanted to try your BBQ when you made the thread about opening a cart. Too far away though. I'm a sucker for good BBQ. We don't have many options here in the Portland area.

I take the cheapest walmart grills and mod the shit out of them but I really don't do much in the way of BBQ. I wont even try and eat a steak that hasn't been cooked on a grill, I haven't ordered a steak from a restaurant in a decade and been happy with it.

How is this one able to get so hot? And would you say it's any better than using a very hot cast iron skillet? My preferred steak cooking method thus far is just a good sear on cast iron, rare.  I do like the slightly different char you get on a very hot grill though.  One thought of mine is that it might take a while to get that hot, how long does it take?

The cast iron can only get so hot without burning off seasoning, that's is around 550 if i remember correctly. With charcoal it takes about 2-3 minutes for me to get to about 700 after i dump the chimney starter full of coals in.

I have a side by side propane charcoal grill. On the charcoal side The steak will release from the grate in about 8 - 10 seconds, on the propane side it about 90 seconds. It is also a huge difference in flavor.

Hog wild on 82 I have not tried it since it went into a comerical space right next to some thai place.
Busters. Meh except the brisket still dry.

Sometimes I'll cook up a can of that canned chicken breast in the microwave (take it out of the can...I won't make that mistake again).  Top it with that Kroger-brand BBQ sauce (its cheap so you can use  A LOT!)

Goddamn its good.  I'll never go back.

Better than cast iron by far. Takes about 10 minutes to get the char area to temp. It uses a fan, and baffles to direct a "torch" to a 1'x1' section of the grill. Check their website, lots of info.

I never said BBQ wasn't the shit, I love it. I may have found an easier way to do it though.
