Furthermore, this is a constant debate I have with my self. I consider myself a smoking purist, using only my Weber Kettle Performer. Charcoal for all my meats, except for a quick midweek cook on the propane grill. The hang up is the time consumption, the constant checking, the vent adjustment, etc. Which makes it a hassle sometimes. So I contemplate a pellet smoker. Set it an forget it, come by every hour to spritz, hook it to my WIFI so I can continue my day with minimal input. Pit Boss, Traeger, RecTec I watch YouTube videos to compare.
Sounds great, but do I need another grilling device on the patio? This can go the same with the Blackstone griddle. This could lead to be 4 grilling devices on the patio. Don't forget the Ooni pizza oven, but that travels and stores well in the basement.
