I'm no stranger to smoking good BBQ. However, I am not an expert and don't fancy on using an old school smoker that needs to be watched continually while feeding the fire with wood. For years I've used a traditional electric box smoker and it has been adequate. I really wanted to step it up a notch. A friend had told me about Green Mountain Grills Pellet Smokers. My normal exhaustive, (some may say obsessive), research began and I chose the GMG Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker.
When I smoke food It's usually for just family and friends. I am not participating in competitions or cooking for an army. A super large smoker that can fit multiple briskets and racks of ribs was not necessary. The GMG Davy Crockett seemed to be a perfect fit for me. It is portable, (known as a tailgating smoker), fully automatic, and runs on 12V or 110V.
It comes packaged with everything you need to get up and running except the wood grill pellets. There are plenty of options for grill pellets including, Hickory, Texas Blend, Competition Blend, Apple and more. The Davy Crockett does all the work for you. It regulates temperature and smoke to produce truly great smoked BBQ. It really is technology at its best. It even has an extensive smartphone app that allows you to monitor and control the entire grill and cook. Out of the box you attach the handle and smoke stack with the supplied wrench and you're ready to cook.
My first cook was two racks of St. Louis Ribs. The two racks fit perfectly on the smoker grill. I have yet to smoke a brisket, but I see no problem being able to accommodate a large brisket. I pressed the power button, set the temperature and monitored everything from my smartphone. The ribs had a beautiful smoke ring and an even better flavor. I was truly impressed with the ease and quality of the cook with this little pellet smoker. The smartphone app is quite detailed and will take some time to learn as it has lots of options and capabilities. You can read or download GMG manuals, GMG app instructions, or GMG recipes at the bottom of the page.
In the video below I show you the unboxing, assembly, setup, and WiFi. It only requires about a total of ten minutes.
