Hello
What do you guys have and smoke?
Just got the smoker so we tried some smoking.
This Daniel Boone model has a temp range of 150 to 550 Deg F. The new Prime direct drive motors keep the set temp plus or minus only 2-3 degrees!
We used apple wood pellets to smoke the Bratwurst in a disposable aluminum pan with butter, onions, brown sugar and Sam Summer Ale.
I flipped the brats after 1.5 hours for even cooking.
Another suggestion is to just put them on the grill for an hour being careful not to puncture them.
I hear Lamb Brats are really good too!

The WiFi phone app that shows the temp with the built in timers for the 3 hours made it easy to track.
I like the view window instead of opening the hood. The new direct drive dc motors keep the temperature you set it at plus or minus 3 degrees. Being DC with all the starting and stopping of the auger motor and fan they will definitely last longer and there is no AC surges to kill the triacs on the control panel!
Also the smart phone app can go into server mode to check on the stove temps if you have to run an errand. Due to FCC regulations you cannot start and stop the stove on server mode for safety. That is fine since I like to set it up and watch it go thru the automatic 0,1,2,3 start cycle to make sure it is cooking.

GMG tech support is # 1 not only with operating and technical questions but with help on any of their wonderful recipes in the manual! They were even open on the July 4th holiday too! GMG is the best for the money!

Any tips on keeping the grill clean?
Rutland White Off for the window and foil formed grease drip pan and grease drip bucket liners or will tin foil surfice? Do you put foil over the SS grates for burgers and not for steaks?

Do you have a rough pounds/hour pellet consumption number?
The food grade pellets are more costly because they use vegetable oil in the extrusion process for the machinery instead of petroleum based oil.
$10 - $20 per 20 lb bag see below.
Pit boss pellets at Walmart are the lowest price
Most grills have an 18 lb hopper so
9-18 hours on a full hopper! Pretty good!

However they only use 1-2 lbs per hour depending on temperature.

See discussion here. :)

Hello
We just did regular grilling of Chicken Thighs, and Beef Ribs at 400 Degs and with the timer to time each side for flipping and using the meat probe to check the inside food temperature it is so easy to make sure the food is properly cooked!
The grease tray liner and grease bucket liner makes for easy cleanup too!
