I inherited a vertical propane smoker from my uncle a few years back and have been smoking pig, beef, chicken, turkey and veggies. I live in the great white north, Buffalo, NY, and was looking for something I could run all year round and was more versatile. I started researching kamadoes and KamadoGuru has been my go to source for reviews and tips.
A few weeks ago Amazon put the Pit Boss 24" on sale for $533 with free shipping and assembly. Unfortunately we don't have a Costco near us or I would have picked one up there. The grill arrived with no cracks or issues. The assembly service put it together the next day in less than an hour and I was up and running by the weekend.
I have been following the threads on recipes, accessories and mods for the grill. So far I have done a few pizzas, beer can chicken, reverse sear steaks and pot roast. I picked up the spider from the Ceramic Store and doubled up on the felt. This weekend I am going to do beef brisket, short ribs and some pork spare ribs. I will put pictures in the forums.
The Kamado Guru site is a huge help and I check it daily now. I am looking forward to fueling my obsession. My family doesn't mind the obsession because they get rewarded in food. Thanks for creating this site.
