    This is what I am currently running. A Smokin-It No.1 with a Fireboard probe monitor. It turns out some mighty fine smoked foods! Prior to this I had a a digital No.2 but after the kids left I gave it to my son as it was to large for my needs...it would maintain automatically a temp within 2 degrees...a very nice unit.

    Went down to see our girl's last week. Then there's my 94 y/o dad that just had his first heart attack last week. Just catching up. I'm not into the "mobile" thing. I think it's an "ADD" thing or something. Just too many distractions or things to do when I'm outside.:D

    ........ although I did pick up about 30# of various sausage and hauled it home. Mostly loose sage. Made some killer sausage gravy yesterday morning, no smoking just our favorite cast iron skillet.:drool: It's hard to find good non Italian "hot or sweet" type sausage "up here". I never realized that my taste's were so heavily influenced by the "Pennsylvania Dutch" (German) region as I spent most of my life just below PA. They look at me cross eyed 'round here if I ask for "regular" sausage meaning non Italian.

    The meat cooks all the way through when you smoke it and the juices stay in and the meat stays tender and juicy, not dry, hard and rubbery like my gas grill!
    I am hooked!

    Love my Daniel Boone! Wait till you do a pork shoulder roast. Good lord!
    Almost pulled the trigger on the GM little model last week for leaving up at my camp but I see Traeger makes a smaller table top unit. Hmmm. Decisions:picard:

    You can fold up the legs on the little GMG Davy Crockett model and put on your table or tailgate or unfold to stand alone. :)

    Being Italian and growing up in the Boston area I prefer the Italian sausage but if you want "regular" try a butcher or even a local farm that sells their own meat. I have a beef/pork farm at the end of the street that does this.
