Stump's Smokers

We were having a bbq discussion at work today (it's Friday) and the topic turned to food of course and one of my co-workers mentioned that his son had purchased a Stump Smoker and was extra pleased with it. After I Googled it I became intrigued. As always I come here first to ask the question of anyone having and using one of these. I am very interested and before I go out and spend the kind of cash they're asking to see if any of you chefs out there have one and how well you like them. Thanks.

    Never heard of them but sure looks like a well built, but expensive, product!

    That's what got me too. My co-worker said the shipping alone was $600.00 but that it is extremely well built. He initially purchased the baby and stepped up to the big one after a year. Then I got to get this past the Missus.

    I've heard of them but never used one. Looking at their website, they are serious smokers. I guess it just depends on how serious you are about smoking. I'm using a Traeger Junior pellet smoker instead of the gravity fed smokers Stumpy's make. For home use I find it perfect and at the last competition I was at (Western BBQ Classic) I was told 15% of the competitors are using pellets. food for thought!

    We own a Stumps Stretch and we use it exclusively. We couldn't be happier with the performance of this cooker. All you need a good pit temp controller, a bag of charcoal, a few chunks of wood, some meat and something do do while you wait.

    I've been researching Pellet grills and Pellet Grills ARE becoming more popular. Don't require as much hands-on attention I guess.

    At the Queen Mary KCBS BBQ Classic last month in Long Beach, CA, one of the pit masters told me that 15 out of the 60 competitors used pellets and he sees the number going up at each competition. Easier, less tending and yields a product that can win competitions!

    I can't see switching to "pellets" when I have over 21 acres of oaks...and if there is a labor strike at the "pellet factory" I'll still be able to cook, and no electricity is needed either...
     
    BTW, out here in the rugged mountains, "pellets" refer to regurgitated stomach waste contents of owls...

    For those of us who don't have 21 Acres, only an 8X10 Backyard, it's a good option and allows more time for Beer consumption!
