Hey all,

Just purchased my first Yoder Smoker a couple weeks ago after taking a Chicken class at ATBBQ. Really enjoyed that class and signed up for the ribs class in Oct while paying for the new YS640. Got home and buddie wondered if they had a Ribs I am in that one too in a couple weeks.

I have been BBQin on a GMG Daniel Boone for about 5 years and needed some extra capacity. After reading dang near every pellet cooker review known to man I had it down to either a Fast Eddy PD500 or the YS640. Since I live within 45 miles of either of the headquarters I was able to go kick the wheels on both...the Yoder was just a step above IMHO and I definitely am pleased so far with it! My first cook was 3 Butts with 2 Gallons of Beans under them...that was some good eatin! Having the second shelf is a must buy for this reason alone. Have done a few burgers and Fatty cooks since then and have my first Chuck Roast on as I sit here pecking this on the Ipad watching it rain.

Still playing with the damper to find what different positions give me as far as temp. Have some good Thermoworks probes that are helping me dial it in. I really like how heavy this thing is built...recovers pretty quick.

I live just west of Wichita in Arkansas City. For work I am an Engineer in the aircraft industry and enjoy BBQ as a hobby, as well as family and friends shooting clay every weekend...which usually ends up with dinner at my place.
