Ken Walker loves his smoker and even wrote about how he decided to purchase a Yoder Smokers Wichita offset smoker on his blog, The Carnivorous Food Breeze. He is a frequent poster on our Team Yoder Facebook Group and often shares photos of his recipes. We’ve noticed he has a propensity for loading up his Loaded Wichita to smoke for his local homeless shelter, sixty pounds of meat at a time. Recently, he did six big pork shoulders:

He’s also loaded up on chickens when he comes across a good deal. What a great way to share the savings!

It’s very rewarding for us to see Yoder Smokers owners who truly love firing up their pits, and even more so when they cook for others who are less fortunate. If you have photos from cooks you have done for charity, please share them on your social networks using the hashtags #TeamYoder or #WhyIYoder, post them to the Yoder Smokers Facebook page, or on our official Community Forum. We’d love to see how you share your smoker with others.

 

 

 

 

Chef Michael Symon on his Yoder Smoker

Chef Michael Symon is one of the most well known culinary personalities in the country, due in no small part to his television roles as an Iron Chef, host of Burgers, Brew & ‘Que, and co-host of The Chew. He also runs almost twenty popular restaurants and somehow still finds time to work in his garden and cook at home for family and friends. We were thrilled to see him in front of his Kingman offset wood smoker in People Magazine last summer and were even more excited that he name checked his Yoder Smoker in Food Network Magazine‘s tailgating story this Fall:

Pro- beer and bourbon, anti- face paint, pro- Yoder Smoker for at-home tailgating? Chef Symon is totally in our wheelhouse.

But our favorite Chef Symon moment so far has to be from this Valentine’s Day, when he responded to a Twitter query about what brand of smoker he’d recommend for a novice griller:

We like the way that man thinks. (And cooks!)
