Iím a tad late to the party, but I own a Hobart handler 140. Iíve noticed some folks are having issues with the duty cycle. The way around it on this or any machine is to add some cooling. I run a ...

There is only one antidote. Beer. Consume it throughout the entire smoke and you will feel much better. The effect does not last long, so you must keep drinking it to stay safe.

I've always done duck on inderect heat. What I found helps the most on minimizing the fatty taste is to pierce the skin a lot with a fork before cooking, then drop it in a pot of boiling water which ...

How did the crab apple smoke smell during the cook. I'm not sure, but I wonder if that is the problem?

Only when it needs it.

That's about every smoke for the grates and about every 15-20 smokes to clean off the lid. I only clean the lid when it looks like something may start falling off, or clog ...

Lots of good info already. The only thing I have to add is go regularly. At least three times each week, no matter what. The only excuse is a death in the family . . . . . . . your own!

I used to love Bullocks, but that was back in the late 70's and I didn't know much about smoking back then. Just a poor college student.

I think that you will find that lump isnt the right fuel for a WSM for longer cooks.

I find just the opposite. When I load my lump, I shake the cylindrical coal holder by spinning it back ...

About the price. . .

Us smokers use more and are probably a lot more on top of the cost than your average joe cooking on a grill, so I suspect they will sell a lot of it. Me, I'll probably stick ...

It's tough telling one from another, but since I keep it all in boxes, I just label the boxes.

That is part of the reason I got the Stoker. Set and forget. About half the time, my wife lets me know that a beeper on the smoker is going off; I'm oblivious, because I'm into other stuff.

I ran with several inches of sand for a while, but now use about an inch of sand and several balls of foil, topped by two layers of foil to catch the grease.
