We've got 2 of the Big John's 4 bay portable steam tables and they work great. They heat up quickly and use very little propane, partly because once they heat up, you have to turn the temp down or it ...

The 8' is a grill/smoker combo. We put charcoal on a grate that sits about 1.5' below the grilling surface for grilling. We use wood in the fire box for smoking.[/code]
