    Finally got off the pot and joined from northern California

    Looking forward to doing a lot of learning and seeing everyone's cooks. I love to eat which meant in college I was very into cooking. Once I got the hang of it realized I enjoy the process almost as much as the end result. I don't have any "large" get togethers, but do enjoy cooking for my friends when we can meet up and have slowly stolen the cooking from my mom and grandmother for holidays.

    Current grills/bbqs are PBC, a GMG, and a mini maxx, Outside I also have a two burner camp stove and blackstone. Have two pyromids with the oven/smoker attachment that I primarily use while camping but it will get some use in the backyard depending on my mood. I try and cook outside as much as I can, especially during the summer.

                              Hahaha, my work used to take me to Sacramento and, well, I wouldn't say I loved it. But at least I got to go to Frank Fat's when I was down there and have some banana cream pie!

                              I lived in Sac years ago and was supposed to move out there but the nuke plant I was transferring to, Rancho Seco, was shut down by SMUD, luckily before I completed the move.

                            Greetings and welcome from North Carolina

                            3 burner gas grill

                            The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                            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.
