Great people with a great product. Enjoyed dealing with them.

"Despite being able to purchase Egg items closer to home and without sales tax, Meadow Creek is worth the 1.5 hour drive and PA sales tax because I truly believe in supporting an honest and helpful small business owner. Jesse’s honesty and recommendations that suit the customer’s needs vs. the most expensive alternative is one of the reasons I feel so compelled to support Meadow Creek.

It is rare these days to find such a sincere businessman who puts the needs, success, and enjoyment of the customer before his own pocket. How rare for a businessman to spend over 1.5 hours with a customer knowing she already owns an Egg and all he can hope to sell is accessories."

We purchased a Green Mountain pellet grill from Meadow Creek and it is a fabulous grill! A little less than a year afterward, it didn't power on properly for an unknown reason. Meadow Creek helped us get it running on the same weekend so we could use it for a party, giving us a completely new computer board for no charge. Thanks for excellent customer service and thanks for a wonderful grill that we use all the time:)

Great place to get your BBQ supplies! I travel one hour because they are the best in products and knowledge. Just glad I found them.

Meadow Creek BBQ Supply is one of the best places in the world for all of your BBQ needs. Their selection of grills, rubs and accessories is incredible! The staff is super friendly and very knowledgeable as well... can't think of a finer group of people. Frequent customer appreciation events are icing on the cake. If you've never been here, you definitely need to check them out. And for all of my fellow eggheads out there, a HUGE selection of Big Green Eggs and accessories can be found here... and definitely check out their egg fest! One of the best kept secrets right here in south central PA. Even though it's a little hike for me to get there, it's well worth the trip!

Recently my wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary and decided to have a whole hog roast. We raised a pig and contacted Meadow Creek and went with the PR72 charcoal model. The pig ended up weighing a live weight of 330 pound but still fit perfectly in the smoker. After 17 1/2 hrs this smoker turned out a smoked hog that every one of our guests raved about. I can not speak highly enough about the help and advise I got while at the store buying this smoker. Thank you and hope to get many more products from you in the future.

Update: I loved the cooker so much I contacted Meadow Creek again and ordered a custom made half griddle/half grill with charcoal pan. When I got my order, I loaded up the charcoal, seasoned the griddle and invited all the neighbors over for a breakfast dinner. I can not begin to say how much I love this store. Everyone there was very helpful. Matt kept in touch through my entire order process and I will definitely be purchasing more from them in the future.

My wife bought me a competition YS640 for Christmas. We decided to pay the extra cost for delivery and it was more than worth it. Matt showed up, assembled it, seasoned it, and gave me a one on one class on how to use it. On my first smoke I did sausage, 2 chickens and 2 racks of ribs. Between the service and the quality of this smoker, it's a game changer.

Harry S.

Always willing to help with any needs you have! I bought two smokers, a Big Green Egg for home and a BX50 for the campground. I love them all.

It's worth the drive! If you love to bbq this is the place. I have purchased two Meadow Ceek units, tank smoker and chicken flipper. Also purchased a Ooni pizza oven. The staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable in the ordering and... selection process. Quick follow up to every question asked. They only sell quality units! If you need pellets this is the place. Huge variety of different types at very reasonable cost. It's 66 miles from my home and the drive is always worth it. Wish I could give more more

I can’t say enough good things about this supplier and the people who work there. I bought a Meadowcreek TS120 reverse offset. It wasn’t cheap but the knowledge of the person i dealt with sold me. I had it delivered to NY and the person (Matt)... who came to set it up was ultra knowledgeable and super helpful while he was there as well as after he left. I made some custom requests when I ordered the smoker and they were all honored. I’m very happy with both the smoker and the staff at meadow creek. Next time i visit amish country i’ll surely stop by more

I spent months researching smokers. I decided on Yoder and this was the only dealer close to me. When I enquired about them, I got replies within hours of emailing them. When I placed the order, they delivered.I had missed their open house... discount because I had to travel for work. I sent them an email and they said they will honor the discount if I placed the order over the phone.Shout out to Matt! He amazing. Made my experience with Meadow Creek amazing!read more

Original Review: If you are into smoking, grilling, sausage making, and anything involving meat smoke and fire, this is a place you must stop at.Update2: Since posting my experience with the cooking splts being too green to cook with, the... management reached out and we are communicating on how they can better understand what they are selling is actually usable when purchased without needing additional curing time. I am grateful for the service they provide and even humbled that they would reach out personally to work out a solution. Will update as time goes more

I have never been to the store, but wanted to review the the BX50 stainless smoker I purchased from my local Meadow Creek dealer (Smoke n Dudes in SE PA) . I'm sure many of you reading these reviews are considering a smoker purchase, and I'd be... happy to share my experiences after 11 months.Paint - perfectly smooth and even. MC added a can of thermal spray paint for touch ups. Nice move.Grade: A+Welds -beefy and clean work on every weld. Very smooth with high craftsmanship. It's s going to last generations.Grade: AVents: Simple, chunky. 2 full turns seems to get my temps right around 250 every time.Grade: AWheels/casters/towel bar - Big enough to get this behemoth over slightly bumpy rerrain. Slightly over-built, but I could say that about most parts of the BX-50.Grade: AClamps (door and water pan) - Nice rubber coated, metal hinge clamps keep the doors to the smoking box, fire box and water pan nicely sealed and a personal preference why I prefer box to tank style smokers. I haven't adjusted them yet, but may need to experiment (see gasket below).Grade: ABBQ Guru port - a great touch. Although I promised myself I wanted to cook for the first few dozen cooks and spin the dials a bit and manage my fire, I fully expect a guru to be connected sometime very soon.(no letter grade but an appreciated feature)Temp Gauges: I'm glad I learned to smoke on this with no extra electronic help at first. The longer the box stays shut and your fuel is in a nice even burn, the upper and lower temps start to move toward each other.. The only ding here is mostly my fault, but on a cook where I started a very healthy fire on a windy day for a brisket and when pulling out the fire box to add some more chunks of wood, the heat & flame from the firebox blew the outer ring and glass of the lower thermometer clear across my yard. Luckily, no one was in the path and props to MC, it still works fine even without a cover. I think a heat shield below the bottom guage would improve the design. I was initially at a B but because it still works:Grade: B+Insulation - I've cooked on this thing at least once every month since May 2020. It doesn't matter how cold it is outside, I haven't had to change my approach if it's 39° or 93°. If you grill year round, you'll love how easy it is to maintain temps. This insulation and wanting to support local businesses when they needed it the most are why I bought the BX50.Grade A+Door gasket - I bought this during the pandemic. I knew I got the floor model I had seen a few months earlier, but I'm 100% happy helping out a local dealer. The gasket was fraying in the top left cornerandi there's a bit of smoke leaking from that area.. But again, nothing I'd fuss over during a pandemic. If a hinge adjustment clears it up, great. If not, I'm pretty sure MC has fitted replacements available. Either way, the gasket doesn't leak except where this one was worn/frayed a bit.Grade: A-Water pan - I wanted the stainless option, but it wasn't available from Smoke n Dudes when I took delivery. Pandemic stuff I'm sure. But I really would like to have less rust to worry about. However, this thing is solid, 5 gallon feeder too is a wonderful design especially for long cooks. I just wish the water pan was stainless on all models - at least the BX50 & 100Grade BCooking chamber - The smaller BX25 is probably great for just about any large family. I opted for the BX50 stainless interior and do not regret that one bit. I sometimes cook 3x before scrubbing the chamber and the SS makes cleaning easy. The BX-50 comes with 4 racks. Using a double height shelf, each can hold 4 average pork butts easily. 12 at a time with a drip tray. I do wish the 50 came with a 5th shelf. I've had a bit of trouble getting one so far locally.Grade: B+ (A with a 5th rack)Firebox - Beefy metal.. Nice size for 12 hour cooks. Ash pan catches practically everything.Grade: AOverall: Its amazing.. A beast. Your kids will have it in their yards someday!read more

I've made multiple purchases at the store in New Holland. First, I bought a BX-50 box smoker when I was getting into competition cooking. All questions were answered to my satisfaction and I felt ready to use it when I drove away. Recently, I had... the opportunity to visit in the dead of night during their Black Friday sale. This time I left with a BBQ26S chicken flipper/grill and a couple of bags of lump charcoal. From the time I walked into the store to the time the box was loaded into my truck was literally only 15 minutes. Spectacular service and efficiency for sure.In my experience, the store always has their equipment lineup on display, as well as additional available stock in a spacious warehousing area. Numerous brands are represented.There is also a good selection of BBQ spices and supplies, including a refrigerated section.Its about a 60 minute drive for me to get there, totally worth more

I have purchased a Meadow Creek SQ36 offset, as well as a PR42 pig roaster, & I couldn't be happier with both. The SQ36 is, I believe, the best priced stick burner on the market. I only use wood splits when cooking on it, & nothing beats the "Q" it... produces. The PR42 makes you look like a whole hog pro, from your 1st try. I got incredible support & detailed advice on cooking a whole hog on the PR from Matt, & my 1st pig (75 lbs.) came out perfect! You cant go wrong by joining the Meadow Creek family. I'm glad I did!read more

Bought my Big Green Egg XL from Meadow Creek and we love it. Jesse and the folks at Meadow Creek do a great job of supporting their customers and have a wide variety of BBQ accessories on hand.Years ago, we rented a 60" Meadow Creek Pig roaster... for a Leola UM Church picnic. What a great experience. Ivan told us "load it up at night and it'll be done in the morning." We were skeptical and watched it all night, but he was right. We didn't even have to add charcoal. The pork was perfect. While we pulled the pork, I added more charcoal and covered the whole grate with chicken halves. The chicken cooked with indirect heat to a golden brown. The picnic was a great success and the food was fantastic. Thanks Meadow more

Great selection of BBQ supplies! I also purchased my Big Green Egg from them after their Eggfest in 2019 and couldn't be happier.
00:55 11 Mar 20
In the fall of 2018, we were looking for a new grill, smoker or a combination thereof. Jesse, the owner, along with his employees always took a generous amount of time with us explaining the different options. With our indecision of two different... models, Jesse spent a Saturday morning with us, firing up the two different models so we could assess the taste difference, grilling methods, etc. We soon purchased the Big Green Egg and have never regretted it. The customer service is exemplary, grill accessories quite adequate and reasonable in price. Meat, seasonings and cookbooks are also available. This is our “go to store” for grilling needs!!read more

I cannot recommend this place enough. If you haven't been here before, it is a BBQ supply store which occasionally has demos or offers to-go meals on special occasions(like town events). Very polite family/employees and very knowledgeable as... well.BBQ supplies are very reasonably priced, sometimes better than online prices. They are my go-to place for charcoal. Though i have not bought one, I am told they are the cheapest around for the Big Green Egg. They also have a cooler with a selection of meats available.The food they offer on days like the New Holland fair is good and better priced than a food truck. (2019 prices are $7 for a pulled pork sandwich with chips and $8 for a brisket sandwich with chips) I prefer their pulled pork over the Brisket as the brisket runs a little fatty for my tastes. Baked beans($2.50 as of 2019) are excellent as more

Great place. Always polite and helpful and they carry a very nice variety of seasonings. I highly recommend them. They are always willing to answer questions and if you stop in at the right time you may even get to sample a cook that they have going on.

I am the executive chef at Spinnerstown hotel near Quakertown, PA. A few months ago the owner of the restaurant purchased a used Meadow Creek smoker to accommodate the volume of smoked pork shoulder we sell along with other smoked items. The current pandemic has forced my hand to run that smoker 6 days a week. The smoker is consistent, retains even heat, and is easy to clean.

I absolutely love it.

Since our shutdown the restaurant has been doing a roadside BBQ drive up Thursday-Saturday, 4-7pm. We sell out almost everyday. So a very big thank you from me and everyone at Spinnerstown Hotel. Thank you for making a quality product. Stay safe and healthy!

I have Meadow Creek PR42, PR60GT, PR72GT, and PR72 Pig Roasters. I also have a BBQ144 Chicken Cooker and two 7-pit Chicken Cooker Trailers. I got them over 20 years ago when Melvin first started. The first winter I did demos all over the eastern part of Pa….then I got into BBQ competition on the larger scale and went to the world cook off sponsored by National Pork Producers in Iowa.

I kept winning competitions and going to state rib fests from Iowa to Datona cooking against the Damons and the big teams from the cooking channel. I got into catering in the late 80's doing chicken BBQ for a local grocery chain and our BBQ trailers grew from 1 to 4 trailers, all made by Meadow Creek. With the 4 cooking at the same time we can put out about 900 half chickens an hour.

I was attracted to Meadow Creek some 10 years ago. My Deputy Fire Chief and I chaired a Chicken Barbecue to raise funds for our Fire Department...

We had to find something fast to cook 1,000 half chickens on...

So we called Meadow Creek, and you were more then willing to accommodate us. We were more than satisfied with the pit, the knowledge of your staff as to which unit would suit our needs the best, their over all professionalism, and their willingness to help our Fire Department.

I was convinced that my next grill purchase will be from your company, but since then my Department has fallen victim to the consolidation and merger of many local volunteer fire companies, and was phased out of existence.

May I extend another hearty thank-you on behalf of myself, and the former Columbia Consolidated Fire Department.

Ed Woytowicz

 I bought this smoker last April and have been having fun with it ever since. I did a fundraiser for my church on Super Bowl Sunday. We made pulled pork BBQ chicken and 2 sides. Due to the timing of the event, I had to smoke the pork butts ahead of time. It just so happened that on the scheduled day not only was it below freezing, but we got a snow squall that lasted over an hour and at times was almost a white out. The smoker kept on going, was able to hold the temperature through the whole storm. Fortunately the day of the event was warmer, all the way up to the 40’s, and the chicken cooker worked just as well. Every time I’ve cooked chicken, people say it is the juiciest bbq chicken they’ve ever had. I look for reasons to cook for a crowd.
