    YS640 in Texas.

    Last football season I happened to eat a prime rib prepared on a pellet smoker by another guest at my friend's house. Amazing to say the least. After quizzing the cook all nite about the pellets, I was taken with the idea of precise temp control. Having just bought an XL big green egg at that point in time, I was a little gun shy about buying yet another grill. My fire going out during a long smoke on my BGE finally pushed me over the edge. Ordered Yoder today. Will keep the BGE for decoration.

    Welcome to PS.com Danny and to the world of cooking with pellets! There is a time and place for charcoal cooking so hopefully the BGE will have it's rightful place in your arsenal.
