    It was definitely a crowd pleaser.

    Any reason you used tenderloin instead of shoulder?

    Because my wife went and bought a bunch of tenderloins “because she likes them better” then dumped them on my lap yesterday morning and said bbq something. She called them “roasts” lol.

    Not as juicy as they could have been if shoulders obviously but I made up for it with lots of Smokey char siu flavor.

    Question for the bbq enthusiasts - if you were rebuilding your entire backyard grill/bbq/smoker setup from scratch, what would you buy?

    I'm moving soon and my 10 year old Costco-special natural gas grill likely won't make the move. I'm considering alternatives to a full sized propane/NG grill as I'd like to dabble in smoking, but also because 9/10 times I turned on the grill it was only to use the infrared sear burner.

    Options I'm open to (and various combinations thereof):
    - BGE / Akorn
    - Pellet grill / smoker (Costco is clearing out a Louisiana grills model at the moment)
    - Northfire infrared broiler
    - Electric vertical smoker
    - Weber or Napoleon NG grill (one that will last longer than 10 years)

    I would go separate smoker & bbq personally smoking on your grill is an ok way to get your feet wet but imo can’t compare to a true smoker.

    Napoleon for grill is my pick

    I really like my Bradley digital for an electric smoker, only complaint is it could be a bit hotter and I wouldn’t do the 6 rack next time due to lack of control of temperature in the vertical column. Bottom is substantially hotter than the top which makes the extra 2 racks pretty useless.

    I would like a big cast iron offset smoker one day for bigger cooks, I kindof see this as a supplement to my Bradley though as electrical vertical is awesome for convenience.

    I'm a fan of the kamado styles. I have a BGE. If I were to do it again, I'd get a bigger one....an XL.

    If I REALLY had the budget, I'd get a komodo Kamado. Fucking love those things.

    Then I use a Weber kettle for regular grilling (which I don't do much nowadays).

    I have a Northfire for searing steaks. I'm not super happy with the northfire build quality, and would likely figure out a way to get an otto wild instead.

    Overall I'm happy with my setup. Although I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a pellet smoker for convenience.

    I'd get a smaller Weber or Napoleon NG or propane grill then a separate smoker. The smoker would depend on what I planed to do the most of. For example, if I was doing a lot of sausages or single roasts I would likely stick with some version of a cabinet style smoker; either the Bradley or a propane one. If I was mostly doing multiple roasts or many racks of ribs I'd probably do a pellet smoker like the Louisiana or Treger. If money wasn't an option I'd get a Yoder or a BGE because fuck it why not.

    napoleon over weber every day of the week. If you have a tight budget I don't mind Weber on the lower price points but if you want quality napoleon is significantly better.

    If costco still has the Louisiana grills you should buy them. I've seen prices in some cities drop to 499 for the LG 900.

    I've owned both the Napoleon Apollo smoker and Weber smokey mountain and found the Weber to be much better.

    Yup. Our dollar killed my plans. I'm too cheap now. Plus, you have to basically make it part of an overall landscaping plan, lol

    You talking gas grills? Fuck off. They're both simply excellent with tradeoffs so small it's up to the buyer to prioritize.
    A Weber Summit is a miraculous grill. Mine has taken a shit kicking for about 15 years without a lick of damage or wear. I'd expect the comparable Napoleon to be the same.

    If your talking smokers, then fuck back on. I have no valuable insight, there.

    LOL weber are a peace of crap. That doesnt mean people dont enjoy their weber and that they arent a good bbq but if you get into comparing quality and spec then napoleon will win every day of the week.

    And to be super critical I think you could argue weber is as good or better with bbqs in the $1000 or less range but as you get into the higher price points napoleon all the way.

    Maybe it was a different story 15 yrs ago when you bought yours but if your buying a weber over a napoleon its because your a cheap bastard.

    Napoleons are decent consumer grade grills.

    Bit if you really want to avoid being cheap...grillworks or kalamazoo

    hah yeah napoleon would be a consumer grade grill. The average person struggles to spend $1700 on a bbq. I couldnt imagine the $17k usd for some of those Kalamazoos.

    I'd take an outdoor kitchen from bull bbq then the kalamazoos in those price ranges.

    I don't look at any of them, ever. That's how you go down the road of "rationalizing a purchase". And I can have no part of that.

    I don't know about the latest gen of Webers, but my old Weber Genesis held heat and got up to temp way better than my current Napolean.
