      Thanks BBQ_Bill !

      I'm sure I'll be posting in the other KBQ thread about/during my smoke. It's actually going to be my first time smoking any meat at all hence my getting all my ducks in a row beforehand to make sure I don't end up with ruined meat & angry guests

      burke54's KBQ is number 25 in The KBQ Roll Call.
      Imagine how much meat could be smoked at one time if all 25 were lined up and smokin'!
      What a sight THAT would be!

Some companies pay a finder's fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product.

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

    slow n sear
    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

    the good one grill
    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.

    Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
    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 Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
    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 Undisputed Champion!

    thermapen
    The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

    Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

    Grilla pellet smoker
    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.

    GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

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

    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

    PK 360 grill
    The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

    kareubequ bbq smoker

    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.

    Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

    masterbuilt gas 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'.

    Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    NK-22-Ck Grill
    Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

    Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

    Green Mountain Davey Crockett Grill
    Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
