        Now getting ready for the dry run. Cleaned up painted the stand, going to check the temp on the bottom pan and just do a good burn to see how it performs before trying to bbq.

                Here's a little update after doing a test burn. The temp wouldn't hold steady even after closing everything off. It seems that there was air leaking in at the bottom pan. So, with that problem and, the concerns about the pan being galvanized I decided to make a pan out of sheet steel and seal it in with food grade hi-temp caulk. After that things worked out fine for the first ribs.

                      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                      Placeholder

                      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      Placeholder

                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use.

It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
