Hmm, I never knew you could boil those foodsaver bags. I've always reheated in the stove at 250º. How long do you typically boil?

Big Green Eggs are awesome. Weber Smokey Mountains are great for much less money.
And I know I'm in a very small minority here, but I absolutely love my MAK wood pellet grill.

The advantages of a wood pellet grill are:
You can walk away and not worry about the temperature. (I've even started smoking a butt at night to have it ready by noon the next day.)
You can cook at one temperature for a while, then smoke at another temperature, or vice versa.
You can smoke, BBQ, and grill with only one piece of equipment.
You can cold smoke with it (although only just).

The downside is, it is expensive, I'll grant you, and because it has moving parts, might break before a BGE. But I couldn't be happier with mine.

I leave the WSM chugging away overnight, all the time.

Well, L.B.O. v2.0 is operational... Smoked a turkey breast last Sunday to season it and make sure it was going to function similar to v1.0...

Going to try to get a chicken on it this weekend and start on the 2nd L.B.O. as well...

As well as many other smokers of the vertical design, if they have the fuel capacity. Especially if you add a temperature controller which a pellet pooper has amongst other things. Cheers!!!
