    No covid discussions in The Pit

    This post pains me.

    There is a pandemic and it is killing friends, family, members. But it is not about food and cooking, and by keeping to those topics, we have managed to keep the Pitmaster Club a space free from vitriol. I do not understand how a worldwide pandemic and national health emergency has become a political issue, but it has, and our policy has always been, no politics in the Pitmaster Club. There are many other places where you can debate politics.

    Given that the pandemic is a matter of life and death, I tried to allow discussion, but members had a hard time discussing it civilly. So, reluctantly, fearing that I am failing a civic duty, the moderators and I shall henceforth, block and delete all discussion of the pandemic, vaccines, masks, and related subjects.

    This makes me very sad. I hope you can all seek truth on this subject elsewhere from reliable sources and find what is needed to keep us alive, and bring our society and economy back. But, alas, it will not be here.

    Good deal. Thank you for all you do, El Capitan.

                          Happy grilling and PBR to our friend Panhead John

                        Good call boss


                          Agreed. There is a place for everything.
                          This fine forum is not that place.
                          Let’s keep it about BBQ and our own fun little things that make us happy.
                          Like watching my neighbor having to jump start his car every couple of weeks because he doesn’t close his, drivers, door when he gets out. 🤷🏼🤦🏼😂

                            I'm glad I'm not the only "horrible" neighbor... can only be helpful so many times before you have to choose between entertainment and babysitting

                          I'm in total agreement

                          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                          Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                          GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone

                          GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.
