    Hello from Cleveland

    Hi everyone! Been a member for over a year, but just now getting around to posting. My name is John, from Eastlake OH, just east of Cleveland. Previously had a seven year career in kitchens before changing gears and becoming a bean counter over the past 18 years.

    Keep really busy with family and church and work and school so about the only hobby I have time for is grilling and smoking. My first smoker was a tiny electric kettle that my wife bought me at a garage sale for $10. It worked as well as a $10 electric from a garage sale could be expected to. That's when I knew it was time to get serious.

    Thought I'd share some pics of different cooks I've done. The ribs, plantains, burnt ends and wings were smoked on a Louisiana Grills LG900 pellet grill. The sliced turkey was Thanksgiving dinner grilled on a Weber Genesis II 410-SE. The whole turkey breast was on the Big Green Egg I used to have.

                    Love OZ- we were in Perth in March 2020 when we had to return to Canada when Covid hit. Heading back as soon as I can. What are you grilling ?

                    javaminit yeah it's nice over here on a sparsely populated island. Tomorrow I have two 1kg slabs of cured bacon going on the smoker to cook. Beef cheeks as well for a ragout for dinner Sunday, yourself?

                    Well, I’m doing the pastrami on Monday, I hope - so long as it isn’t too breezy. Then I have a 4K slab of pork belly frozen that I have to brine and get some bacon on the smoker.

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                        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.

                        Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                        Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                        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 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.
