I did buy grill grates for my charcoal grill and that's what I used for the steaks. Highly recommend.

What am I missing just to start out?
smoker
meat
tongs
charcoal
wood
flavored chips
steel pail
BT dual probe
butcher paper

One thing I never realized is you can't just use any type of wood and then include flavored chips. You need hickory, oak etc along with the flavored. Atleast I think. Not easy to come by here

Are you trying to get into a smoker or what? What's your goal?

if you're smoking I also like some cotton glove liners + nitrile gloves over the top to pick up the meat when it's done vs using tongs or a fork or some other tool.

Would rather save on the up front cost and the heat maintenace then extra cost/saved time on pellet


i asked my friend who uses a weber kettle a few questions today...

his flavor will ALWAYS be superior, but he has to go outside and tend to the smoker every hour or so to maintain temp, etc...

pellet grill flavor will lack in comparison, but unless the power goes out or something absolutely unforseen happens, it is set it and forget it...like, go to bed and wake up with little/no worries...

myself, i would go pellet everytime :dunno:

I don't have any problems tending, and the one I'm looking at is ideally good for about 2h, plus there will rarely be large cooks that need 8-12 like brisket. Plus I am just starting out and would rarely smoke. Also have heard horror stories of pellet feeders failing and starting fires.
