Recently I've bought a small electric griddle (https://grillguru.org/best-electric-griddle/) for my kitchen and I believe it was pretty good purchase for the period of not active outdoor grilling. I've tried to cook some ordinary easy things like burgers and cheese, but I'd like to make some experiments with steaks and ribs.

Steaks should be fine but I'm not sure how ribs would work on a griddle.

I have a cheapo smoker from Home Depot that I've been using to make tri-tip, pork shoulder, and BBQ ribs. Tri-tip is easy because the cook time is short, and it's easy to regulate the heat using briquettes with wood for smoke flavor. My pork shoulder and ribs come out ok. I've been equally hit and miss with them. I still haven't built up the courage to cook a brisket, mainly because if I **** it up I will have $50 of bad meat. I'm not looking forward to that.

I still haven't done a pork butt or brisket in my Masterbuilt 30 because of how damn long it will take! I haven't smoked any ribs or wings or anything for quite some time. Maybe this weekend I'll come out of semi-retirement. :hungry:

Did you get the masterbuilt charcoal smoker?
if so how are you liking it?

Mine is the regular Masterbuilt Electric one. It's pretty good, but I find the bottom shelf is worthless because of how close the rack is to the heating element. Any food on that rack gets scorched more or less.

Got this Sportsman 1100 from Pit Boss for Xmas. I would have preferred one a tad smaller...but oh well.

Broke it in with a shoulder, 3 racks of ribs and a tri-tip. So much easier than my old Masterbuilt Electric box.
