Komodo smoker

Recommended Posts

A few months back I went to Costco and picked up a Louisiana Grills (same manufacturer as the Pit Boss line) komodo style smoker. It's been doing pretty well, I've been getting used to it, relatively easy to set and maintain a steady smoke temp. 

 

First attempt was baby back ribs, burnt them on the edges but I know now what I did wrong. Since then I've done a few whole chickens, turkey legs, Boston butt pork - all pretty damned good turnouts. 

 

This morning I brought it up to temp and laid a beef brisket on it. Hope it comes out good. 

 

Anyone else using this style smoker?

Yup we have a knock off of the green egg. Does good stuff, heavy as hell. Had it for about 5 years or so. I’d get another if this one fell apart. Ribs, chicken, butts, fish does it all. It grills too!

This is the one at Costco, it was five bills when you pick it up at the warehouse. 

 

I was the same way, all my buddies were putting out this great stuff, I wanted to try. 

 

The pellet grills are all the rage, but this requires no electricity, and I'll tell you once you establish a temperature it holds rock steady for hours. That brisket went 11 hours. Came out amazing btw.

I absolutely researched the grills after viewing this thread yesterday.  Damn big money for them.  Komodo Joe III seems to be top dog as of now.  I don't know though,  a split 55 gal drum,  three heavy hinges,  some fire brick,  a couple of pieces of flue pipe and Voila !
