The stick burner produces the best brisket IMO. They all have a purpose for me.
I agree mate, in fact my offset cooks the best barbecue all round, but I never use it.........
Everything I smoke these days is in one of my two pellet cookers, and per 12 hours at 225 I reckon I use 3/4 of a 9kg bag, but I don't give a shit how much it costs cos I usually don't have the time (or the inclination) to tend to the stick burner every 45 mins or so to check, stoke, top up the fucker. It's just so convenient to get the pellet grill going, bang the food on, go to bed and wake up to the awesome smell of hickory or cherry (or whatever) and a half cooked slab of meat, knowing it will be ready in another few hours.
It's just a cost vs convenience equation. Some people say pellets are for lazy cooks, but I'm usually that busy doing other shit around the ranch that without it I would cook a lot less without it cos I just don't have time
