    • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

    Ernest you will need to make more room on the patio so I'm guessing the PBC and WSM will be on Craigslist soon...😂

      DWCowles I'm really considering that BUT I don't want to wake up one morning WISHING that I had one of those. LOL!!
      I think 5 outdoor cookers is just about right.

              I saw somebody asking about how the KBQ looks inside after a cook. This was taken after ribs, 2 chickens and sausages.

                  What happen to the feet that was in those flip flops? And why is there no cover on the KBQ?

                  I thought using a chainsaw while wearing flip flops would be a bad idea. So I opted to go bear foot. LOL
                  If you look closer, you'll see the cover on the floor behind it. I wanted to get the right size to fit the fire box.

                Ernest I suspected in a stickburner with a proper fire mesquite would be a non issue. Thanks for confirming.
