Loading Up the Loaded Wichita to Share with Others


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.





N-n-n-n-nineteen #TBT

Facebook has its uses. Groups like Team Yoder Smokers, Yoder Pellet Grills Fan Page, and Yoder Smokers Australia & NZ give Yoder fans an easy way to share photos of their latest triumphs as well as tips and questions for other owners. It lets us reach out to the Yoder Nation and vice versa.

Yoder owner Rick shared this with us for #TBT (Throwback Thursday):

The comment reads “Thought you guys would like to see this old girl again! she is #19 of your cheyenne model. production date of 10-2-07! she got a cleaning and a fresh coat of oil and reseasoned. Going to fire up the old girl this weekend for my first cook on her.

He also included a close-up, showing the serial number and date:
