    New member from Central Ontario

    Just to introduce myself. Retired CPA living on a lake close by Georgian Bay. Thinking about building an outdoor kitchen. Have had two BGEs, one small, one XL for 10 years plus, pellet fired Uuni (now called Ooni) pizza oven and several rocket/ gasification stoves one bought most homemade that I use like side burners.

    Cooking of all kinds is a real passion from sourdough bread, cassava tortillas, steak and kidney, kefir, sauerkraut, pizza, Portuguese custard tarts, Indian chicken tikka masala, Ethiopian doro wot, Singapore noodles, Japanese natto, Irish potato farls Argentinian empanadas etc. etc.as well as the usual bbq suspects, briskets, butts, ribs, chicken, sausages. My favourite indoor cooking appliance is my Thermomix.

    I also do whole hog roasts for church and local cottagers’ association on rented equipment.

    Looking for advice on building/purchasing Argentine style grills with side brazier and height adjustable grill surface. Currently cooking outdoors with reclaimed oven racks on concrete blocks at different heights fired by embers shoveled from a simple ground level rock circle fire pit with rocket stove to fire a wok and homemade wood chip gasification stove as back up. It all works to produce great food but it’s a bit messy and needs a crew!

    Welcome from the California Delta. Looking forward to seeing some of your cooks.

                              Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                              3 burner gas grill

                              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.

                              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’.

                              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                              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.

                              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                              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.
