Re: eBay 50% off BBQ's BigSunday

I am excited to be joining the Pellet Grill Brethren. Just bought me a GMG Daniel Boone wifi. A great present for my 40th in October. My wife just rolled her eyes. I'd like to think I've made her gift selection easy :-) You'll love it ! I've been testing one for a few months and they are great. Wif...

Correct mate, they do not. The Yoders do not go into a time sequence at all.

Just FYI Mate, Yoders do not dump pellets just based on a time sequence.

Re: Testing Pellet BBQs & Pellets

3 or even 6 hours is not long enough, its like testing fuel consumption in a car & only driving it for 30 minutes. You will get results, sure, but they just wont be accurate. It isn't long enough... in saying that, you may want to log other variables such as ambient, humidity and wind. 100% mate :w...

Re: Testing Pellet BBQs & Pellets

I don’t understand the criticism of the three hour Pellet Consumption test when I confirmed the validity of the results with a second test of 6 hour duration. You can see the results of those tests a bit further down this post. 3 or even 6 hours is not long enough, its like testing fuel consumption...

Re: Testing Pellet BBQs & Pellets

You've got one Mick, so next time you do a roast, let us know how much you use. As you said, it can't be that hard. To my way of thinking, firing up a pellet grill (or cooker!) to grill 2 steaks for dinner is overkill and an expensive way to use them so I disregard that function. Low and slow and r...

Re: Testing Pellet BBQs & Pellets

Sorry Mick, You have not understood some of what I was saying. And I just don't agree with you, we see it very differently & how tests should be performed to get accurate results. Over the past couple of weeks I have ran 20+ bags of pellets through mine Based on what Chris is saying, I wouldn't hold...

Re: Testing Pellet BBQs & Pellets

Fair enough Mick. I cook Pulled Pork for around 16, Brisket for 12, Beef Short Ribs for around 9, Lamb Shanks for around 8 & pork ribs for 6 , so from my opinion testing at 105C / 225F for 3 hours is a waste of time. I find the main question folks want to know is "How long does a 9kg bag of last" wh...

Re: Testing Pellet BBQs & Pellets

The problem with testing based on cold startup is different brands use different approaches to reach target temp. Some deliberately overshoot then drop to the target temp to make start up quicker but is no doubt inefficient. In a test from cold, it will probably be the slowest cooker to warm up tha...

Testing Pellet BBQs & Pellets

Hi Gatsby, We have already performed tests with the Yoders & thermal covers save around one third of pellet usage. The more you can protect the inside of your BBQ from the cold, the less pellets you will use, the more stable your pit temperature ( no temp big swings ) & the better your overall resul...
