Have a 400k BTU natural gas heater on my 15k gallon pool/spa. Heats up about 1.5 degree per hour. I think electric would take much longer in talking to friends that have electric. Not sure of exact cost of heater as was part of spa package. I think I paid $25 per foot for the gas line and they a...

re: What will be your next grill/smoker purchase? - Tygermanjohn
Look into the RecTeq line. Picked one up recently and super impressive. I went with 700 for extra pellet capacity and 6 year warranty. It is built like a tank, and temp control is perfect after first burn in. Lots of clean smoke produced. Only issue with it is switching out pellets is not easy, ...
