    Lakeside Chef, Here!

    I'm glad to join the Pitmaster Club and I am looking forward to improving my barbecue skills. I have an Akorn that I accidentally modified and now it works a lot better. I broke off one side of the cast iron grill by dropping it and now I can feed small chunks of wood or charcoal down the side of the grill without disturbing the food. Unlike many Akorn users, I build small hot fires and feed the fire with small quantities of fuel. This method makes it easy to run low and slow while producing thin blue smoke and better tasting food. I've made a lot of good food with the Akorn over the last two years but now I am ready to move on to greater challenges.

              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.

              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!

              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 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.
