    I'm thinking of finding the little tiny trager. I'm the only meat eater at my house so it would be about perfect.

    Campbell University liberals. They showed a slaughterhouse video in class and my wife hasn't eaten anything with a face since. Chickens are ugly so they don't count.

    Traeger Tailgater , with the legs folded .. I know for a fact it will fit in the trunk of a 2011 Ford Fusion.

    Don’t ask how hungry you get driving to work Monday morning...

    I have the tiny ranger and the big timberline and a good bit of experience with both. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out but I love my ranger more everytime I use it. Some of my best cooks have come off that small portable grill.

    The thick T-bones are amazing.
    A pork loin and cheese filled jalapeños was incredible. Our grocery bill is going to double.

    the stuffed peppers are AMAZING.
    A $5 WM frozen pizza with a few jalapeños on top taste better than a $20 pizza out.
    Yup, we’re hooked.

    Anyone who describes their ribs as fall-off-the-bone doesn't know how to cook ribs. Period. That's just a pot roast made with rib meat.

    Proper ribs should be able to be cut and stay together, be able to be picked up and eaten on the bone with enough tooth/chew to it that the meat you aren't biting stays on the bone.

    My daughter's boyfriend's barrel smoker is too small to do ribs on the rack, so he had to use hooks.

    Guess what happens when they cook too long on hooks? Yep, you lose a rack to the coal gods. Luckily, the other rack stayed intact.

    Lesson learned, but he's also now got a smoker/grill large enough to handle them.

    I got rave reviews from the crew, several of them have smokers and wanted to know what the rub was. After the 24hr vinaigrette/brine bath it got a dry rub of salt, pepper, cayenne, some Old Bay, & garlic powder and sat on a drying rack overnight. The next morn applied more rub, then inspired by @kcult mustard fried chicken post, mixed French mustard and Trader Joe’s jalapeño sauce (really good!) and coated the pork. Finished with a 12hr 225 degree smoke.
    No more calls please, we have a winner!

    I see why y’all are laying down the foil, how much does it help? It’s been through @ 3 bags of pellets and stays in the garage.
