New Green Mountain Daniel Boone w/ WIFI
« on: December 01, 2017, 02:08:30 PM »
A week ago I put a text out to Nate that resulted in another phone conversation. Him and I have discussed this before and at the time I was looking used Traeger models. Nate has since shown me the error in my ways and after a good chat about what I want to do he persuaded me to look at the Green Mountain sale they have going on. It was originally a black Friday sale which they extended thru 12-4 officially but you may be able to twist the dealers wrist up until 12-11 at least that was implied if you wanted to take advantage of their special pricing.

So the wife unit & I ran up about 15 minutes to the transwest truck and trailer / rv outlet to take a look this morning as they are the closest authorized GM dealer. So we spent a good half hour discussing our options and decided on this unit including WIFI. For the record I am not a tech guy whatsoever really, however after he went over all the options of the app it was hard not to spend that extra hundred. The sales guy named Sean (yeah I know he spells it wrong but we'll let that slide this time) was very knowledgeable and helpful. We had to back order a unit that he has due in in 10-14 days as he sold the last DB WIFI unit last night.

What does the wifi allow you to do?

I've been thinking about some type of smoker for a while.  Its not really a matter of if, but more of what and when.  First I was thinking about building something but lately a pellet smoker has been appealing.  I wonder if something like this wouldn't be exactly what I would get the most use out of.

Honestly, I don?t think you can beat the price point on this deal. Green mountain according to Nate is owned by the brother of the guy who originally started Traeger. They essentially have two size smokers & being we don?t plan on cooking for more than 10 people at once ever this smoker had more than enough surface area. It?s also easier to dial in the temperature across the cooking area than the larger unit. I?m sure Nate or one of the other guys can speak to that. Me being a green horn I figured easier is better to start with. As far as the app & what it controls. Just about everything except turning it on & taking out the meat when it?s done. I didn?t believe I wanted it until the sales guy showed me what all it could do. But in layman?s terms it?s a remote control essentially from anywhere your phone can get WiFi & you can monitor the temps as well with it.

Nice!  All of the pellet smokers are essentially the same. What really makes the difference is stainless. I would make sure your firepot and heat diffuser tray at a minimum are stainless. Also those igniter rods fail often. Go ahead and get a spare now.  And keep fuses on hand too. You can light the firepot manually in a pinch. I also like using an additional smoke tube to get more smoke in the first two critical hours. Also a smoke hood that forces the smoke to stay in the chamber above the grate has helped me.

My Rec Tec just announced they stopped using hot rods for ignition and went to a ceramic igniter that is supposed to be good for 50,000 cycles. I bought one to retrofit. Will see how that works.

Again all these parts are interchangeable for the most part so you might be able to replace your pot with the SS and ceramic rod later on down the road.

I?m sure Nate told you about a fatty. And no not the green cross kind.

Love my GMG and it?s super easy to use.  My son starts it when he gets home from school so we have smoked meals when I get home from work. 

Tex I don?t think gmg gets stainless innards

Don't believe the innards are stainless, we did order a cover as it will be stored on our covered patio and the additional upper rack.

Charles, I'll get those three items on order. The thermapen was already on the list and the other two well lets just say if Ken had told me to buy them I would have thought they were some H love device as I have no idea what to do with them as of yet! :facepalm:

Put the JK to work dragging home the new smoker and accessories. Assembled it yesterday and spent the afternoon running it up to the initial 350 break in round and then seasoned the box with canola oil before cooking 2 1/2 pounds of peppered bacon this evening. It was suggested by me to do the first cook of bacon so that I could get a visual of the where the hot and cold areas were in the grill. Bacon is hard to screw up so there's that...........

Hmmm, my middle daughter read 10 year old at the time hacked my apple account few years ago. Took me 3 trips to apple store (luckily it was a mile from our apartment right after we moved to CO.) & 3 hours of my life to get that account back. After she changed password she forgot what it was.......

She likes good food so I should be safe!

Not today, too much going on. This weekend though as it?s in the fridge and next up to bat......

Still need to download WiFi app & get that working as I haven?t taken time to mess with it as of yet.

HH6 wants prime rib for Christmas so gunna try to pick up a couple and run one later this week as a trial run.

Norm, I?m telling you once you open the door you can?t turn back......

Shawn, I did some prime rib for our Christmas party a couple years ago.
60-70 lbs...

What I did,
Steak spice and pepper rub, whole garlic cloves slipped in a stab cut 1" inch, I put a whole bulb in each roast.
In oven to caramelize the fat, 450* for about 15-20 mins.
Then onto smoker for a few hours. It was shocking how fast, want to say 3-4 hours only.
Took to 140* and called them done.

Turned out fantastic.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

Nate I am not sharing anything....She has her UDS she use very effectively. I am just going to one up her and learn more better patience, thus becoming the families "king of dead animal preparation"

I am considering a pellet smoker/UDS hybrid concept.

At some point this winter I may spend the $$$ on a pellet deal and build a fancy antique fridge smoker. Until then, my wife has a plan she says.
