Dry brined some chicken thighs overnight and browned in oil...

Added in some root veggies (beets, celery root, red pearl onions, carrots, and turnip):

Threw in a little pepper and 4 cloves of garlic. Hit with a 1 cup of white wine.

Chicken thighs back on top with a compound butter (butter, salt, pepper, thyme, rosemary, sage, parsley, and garlic)...

Into a 450 degree oven until the thighs were done. Did remove the thighs and a low broil on the veggies. Wife made sourdough bread and broiled with the herb compound butter.

My setup is smoker, charcoal, and gas.

If it was me I would do a rec or GMG. I know rec is getting some slack apparently for selling out (they are talking about stocking them in big box stores now). However I have not been following the drama enough to know if this is still the case. To me that does not really matter because weber is all big box store and still has amazing customer service. We got BIL a GMG and he loves it.

I still have a bad taste in my mouth about Traeger but I know a buddy who has the latest model and loves it.

Get the smoker and see if you need the gas grill. The nice thing about pellet is quick to light and can run hotter. Doing chicken at 350 is nothing but a little more pellet burn. However even pellets are starting to come down (market is getting saturated with pellet manufacturers which is good for us).

I use my GMG as a grill for burgers, dogs, chicken etc and love it. I feel like it doesnt burn pellets THAT bad. While a gas grill would be nice to have too, I really see no reason to buy both.
