    Greetings from the Sunny Chicago Suburbs

    Hidilly-ho frienderinos,

    Hello from Chicago's west suburbs. I like smoking beef, pork, chicken, and fish. But have been smoking a lot of chickens lately. I use the Weber 26 with SnS XL, and a cheap upright propane smoker for when I forget to buy coals.

              Fair questions. Not too often, but it's been nice to have when winter rolls around and the whole chickens call to me. I'll have to leave it to the imagination as to whether I've ever been desperate enough to fire up some chips.

              Yup, my gasser comes in handy in winter, although not a smoker.

                          Well Hidilly-ho, frienderino your ownself, and welcome to the Pit from north Texas.
                          I can honestly say that’s the first time I’ve ever written or said that phrase. But I’ll use it now. You’ll have some fun on the Pit. I hope tour next post doesn’t take a year! (Show us some pix of those chickens.)

                            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.

                            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                            Our Favorite Backyard 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.
