No doubt. Certainly can smell the goodness when my neighbor fires his up. Yesterdays ribs came out fine and five of us almost consumed three racks of ribs and half a brisket. MMMM good. Well now awaiting the Rock Stoker kit. Will advise. Safe Travels.

We love our Traeger pellet smoker- they make a PTG(portable tabletop grill), it's a legless tailgate model that has about a 12"x15" grill area. We've had a Lil Tex model for years. so when we got our rpod 179 we ordered one.  Seems to work well- we love slow cooking chicken for a deep smoke ring. 190*F for hours until the internal temp on the thickest pieces reaches 170*F.  But I'll be the first to admit these grills require electricity & pellets.  So they do need more than an open fire wood require.  And I do love simplicity.

I modified my weber "go anywhere" BBQ,  to either BBQ higher temps or smoke at lower than normal temps for this unit, I installed a LP flow control just before the BBQ's LP main adjustment, that way I can get the heat low enough for my liking when smoking. I usually like to maintain around 180- 200 degrees when smoking. so I will put my wood chips in get it hot enough to get the chips going then put in the food turn down the temp and close it up.  I have several larger smokers at home and most of the time factory smokers cook WAY TO HOT and fast so I have added the same flow control to all of my smokers so that I can get the lower temps, and Not dry out the meat by cooking to fast, I will use a water pan or wet the chip some time but at 180-200 degrees Not much liquid is really needed.

I have two LP tank setup on my pod so I unhook one tank and install a hose on to it and other end to BBQ and I'm ready to BBQ as I don't like those small throw away tanks, less to take with me.

some of the best tasting smoked meats I have had was made by a guy that cheated, he pressure cooked the meat to make it very tender, and reduce the cook time then finished it off with smoke, I couldn't tell by the taste but looking at the meat  the depth of smoke rings wasn't there

Westgl, can you post a picture of your go anywhere BBQ?  I'd like to do that... don't know what a LP flow control looks like.   What is the setup for the smoking wood?

Here's where I do any smoking I do Tongue  This picture was from when I was still building it, but you get the idea.  It took some time to figure out how to drive the oven, but I can be pretty accurate with my temperatures now.  Smoking is always best after a night of pizzas because I can just use stored heat and then add smoke.  Great, now I'm hungry!

We have a Green Mountain smoker, Dave Crocket.  Loved it when we had our 35’ fifth wheel.  Taken it with our new Rpod.  Great to smoke thick sliced bacon, ribs, chicken etc.  we also smoke pizza and cook steaks on it. It can be either 12v or 110. Highly recommended!

Someone please show how your pod is set up for dual propane tanks!  Ours came with only a single tank.

All you do is buy a dual mount tank holder, remove the factory single mount rack, mount the dual tank rack. You can use the single tank regulator you already have, and switch the feed as needed, or switch out the regulator for a dual feed, with or without automatic switch over.
