We will be at Sugar Bottom this weekend.

I bought a little smoker from Wal-mart to use while camping. It does okay but it doesn't hold as high a temperature as I would like. I really loaded the charcoal this time, second time using it, and still only got to 225 for a little while and then it settles in at about 175. This is fine since I am camping and don't mind it but I do wish it would get to 250 and stay there. I've been smoking pork loin so far along with vegetables and polish sausage.

Very nice!

I just smoke for my own consumption. I have a bullet smoker. My one at home I have used for many years but it's falling apart now. The base is just about rusted out. The bottom is is a solid piece with narrow slits for air. I think it's a Brinkman? This one I use for camping is a kingford. It gets the job done it's just slower and lower temp. I typically smoke pork loin but I have done other cuts as well.

Just looked at the GMG website. The Davy Crocket is on sale for $350 vice $399. Is this a good price or have you seen it lower? Closet distributor appears to be in DeWitt, IA

You absolutely won't find a better price then $349.00

Gmg sets the price and dealers must abide by it.
