Can a backyard smoker really change the way you approach meats forever? The Traeger Renegade grill makes that claim. According to Traeger, once you use a pellet smoker, you’ll never look at charcoal or barbecue the same way. This certainly sounds far-fetched, but it’s not entirely inaccurate. With a good quality pellet grill at your disposal, you’ll probably think twice before you revert to using less flavorful cooking methods for meat, fish, and vegetables.
The outdoor cooking griddle always remind me of diners. I’ve always enjoyed eating there. I don’t know if it was the greasy tables or the soft fluffy pancakes that come out of the not-so clean kitchen but eating at diners relaxes me.
If you’re trying to create authentic barbecue in your backyard, a full-sized pellet grill is the way to go. But what about when you’re on the road? A small portable smoker is a wonderful tool to have for camping, tailgating, and generally enjoying life outdoors. If you’re trying to infuse food with bold smoky flavors and take advantage of the tenderness imparted by cooking food slow and low, these top portable smokers will fit right into your home or vehicle.
My first impression upon reading about the Kalamazoo BBQ was, are you serious? I scoffed at the notion that Kalamazoo grills are worth their price. Names like Gaucho Grills or Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire Grills do not sound expensive. In fact, during my first glance at the prices, I overlooked a zero. I thought, you know, $2,800 is reasonable for a heavy-duty grill powered with wood or gas.
The fight of Napoleon Grills vs Weber has been going on quietly in the grill market for many years. Weber’s status as a well-known, respected brand has painted a target on its back, and the Canadian underdog Napoleon is gunning hard to try to overtake the grill giant. As a consumer, this is amazing news, since it means that Napoleon is working extra hard to produce high-quality grills that are better and cheaper than comparable Weber options.
