    Hello from Delaware

    Howdy fellow grillers! I've been 4-seasons grilling for decades & for the past 2 on one of those cheap offset grills (Char-Griller Smokin' Pro). Yeah, I know. I've managed to produce some decent Memphis-style ribs; used "Meathead's Memphis Dust" rub last Sunday & earned a "best ribs ever" from the wife & guests. Exposure, the ol' grill's lousy quality covers (and my laziness) are rusting it out. I want to upgrade, esp. w/regard to temp control. Those highly rated grills and smokers look great! But ​ that amount of money is out of the question. And we will rarely hold big parties down the road. So I'm thinking about shifting gears and going with the Weber Premium 26" and learning how to sear & smoke in a tighter but more controlled space. Might pick up one of those steel rib racks to add capacity. If you've tried this, feedback, please. Cheers!

          The Weber would be a great upgrade particularly if you add a Slow N Sear from SNS Grills.

                  Can anyone point me to the recipe for "Rub Me Tender"? I looked in the free site but didn't find it.

                  And Welcome, WillieMac!

                    I think he is confused with the name. “Rub Me Tender” is a commercial rub available on some sites.

                    Donw, I did confuse that. I was thinking of Meathead's Memphis Dust. Worth a try if you haven't, steve_woolston. https://amazingribs.com/tested-recip...ust-rub-recipe

                      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’.

                      Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine.
