Pellet Grill/Smoker

When i was in a stick house i had a few pellet grill/smokers. When we decided to become full time RV'rs i could not take my huge pellet grills with me. So i waited and looked around for portable pellet grills.

Traeger came back out with the PTG but i didnt like it because of the lack of cooking area for butts and briskets.

Last year Green Mountain Grills came out with the portable Davey Crockett, So i waited for the bugs to be worked out and price to come down.

I got one 2 months ago for $369

Here is my smoke this morning. Half a butt (being its just me and wife)

Pre heating using hickory/pecan pellets.



Rubbed down and injected with juice.




Little round thing on left is an AMZNPS with apple pellets.

Nice unit. How is it for smoke when using in campgrounds if other campers are close?

I would expect the other campers will just come closer! I bet that smells good.

That grill should be banned from all CG's. Totally not fair to the rest of us to have to smell that all day!

Seriously though, that is pretty sweet. Pellet grill is on my wish list, but DW says no more grills since I have 2 at home and 2 for the camper already....

One of these is on my list to buy this year. We bought the Daniel boon size last fall and have loved it. Course, now I gotta take up running and drop a few pounds, or the weight police will be all over me. dw made me promise we wouldn't get one at first, but after hauling the full size one camping she's changed her mind. happy Campin! Oh, and happy meat Eatin!

I have a treager junior with a tailgator package. It has more than double the cooking area of the PTG and it is very portable. I love my treager and it was just $299.

Yeah this is a nice RV grill. uses 110v and comes with alligator clips for a battery.

As for lots of smoke its just like other pellet grills, smokes when the auger puts pellets in the fire pot.

Like Arefbee said, you will have other campers asking what your cooking.

Here is the butt at a stall.

IT of meat at 156 right now so i moved closer to the hopper side and rotated the mat.
