    Hello from San Antonio, TX

    Hello fellow BBQ fanatics. I am excited to be a part of this community. I started grilling about 8 months ago on a Nexgrill propane grill. I recently purchased a Traeger Pro 575 pellet grill that I am very happy with so far. The brisket and ribs coming off the Traeger have been spectacular. Next things on my list are smoking/braising barbacoa (beef cheeks) on the Traeger and getting a charcoal grill. I am considering the Hasty Bake Legacy, though the price makes me question if it's truly worth the cost, so the Weber Kettle or Smokey Mountain are also on my radar.

    I am looking forward to learning more about BBQ from you all!

      Welcome to the Pitmaster Club! Thank you for the support.

      The Hasty Bake is awesome. They are a very high-quality grill/smoker. I do not know anyone that owns one and does not absolutely love it. (Including Meathaed) Charcoal is a great way to go. In my opinion, it is a great up grade when it comes to flavor and fun.

      Check out or article on the Hasty-Bake, if you have not already. We also a articles on the WSM and the Kettle too.

          Welcome from another Texan! You’ll have fun here and learn a lot maybe, I know I have. You can’t go wrong with a kettle grill, Weber or SNS. Very versatile cooker with lots of accessories available. A recent poll was done here by Troutman I believe the results were that 3/4 of us own a kettle (hope I’m correct) So, lots of advice available if you ever need help. Glad to have you with us!

                          Welcome to The Pit.

                          One thing to consider is that the Kettle has a ton of accessories available that greatly increase it's versatility.

                            3 burner gas grill

                            The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood.

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                            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.

                            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’.

                            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                            Green Mountain’s portable Trek 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 Trek from your smart phone or laptop.
