Grill masters can smoke a perfect 12-hour pork shoulder in an oil drum, but the rest of us need help maintaining the consistency smoking requires. That's why we back the Texas Grill. An auger feeds wood pellets into the burner, which is controlled by a digital thermostat with an electronic ignition. Sure, you don't get the satisfaction of building a fire, but you do get incredibly accurate temperature without constant attention – a necessity when you're going low and slow.
