    i am still very torn on what smoker to get but these have really caught my attention lately. i am not sure on what to get but i've been looking at so many options (stumps, superior, lang) and now meadow creek. although this is expensive it turns out to be similar in price because i can drive to pick this one up and not have to pay for shipping. 

    i also like the option of pulling the top rack out and i can throw in a whole pig. i am just worried about temp fluctuations and fuel source. 

    let me know what your experience is with the meadow creek.

    thanks all!

    I purchased a Meadow Creek TS 250 over a year ago and really like it. One thing I will say Is Meadow Creek builds a quality product. I have cooked ribs, chicken, turkey, pork loin, wings and meatloaf on my cooker. The temp really holds well on my cooker in hot or cold weather. The coldest I have cooked in was 23F last winter and it held the temps great. I start it on charcoal and add wood from there, just a few adjustments to the draft to set your temp and your cooking. There are no temp fluctuations with this unit, I add 2 chunks of wood at a time when I see the firebox is getting low. The stainless steel cooking racks slide in and out easy and clean up just like new. I have a friend that has had the TS 500 for over 4 years now. He does BIG cooks for weddings and other party’s. His runs the same as mine does but just burns more wood cooking the big loads of food.

    Jersey....I have helped for a couple of years at a local comp.....using one of those smokers.  LOVE them.  The only problem I have is....I am a shorty...and can't raise the lid by myself!  [​IMG]   Too high and too heavy for me.

    BUT.....oh would love to own one.
