    Newbie from NC

    I’ve been lurking around the website for about a month and finally decided to try the free trial. I’ve been smoking for about 10 years and grillin’ since I was a teenager. I love learning new techniques and Meathead’s scientific approach is right up my alley. I’m also a fan of Steve Raichlen and have used many of his recipes. Whatever works and tastes good, I’m all in regardless of the source.

    I grew up in eastern NC so my bbq preference is cast in stone: pulled/chopped pork in a thin vinegar and red pepper sauce. Scott’s BBQ sauce, from my hometown, is all I ever use. I currently own a Pit Boss 820 PS pellet grill and Weber Genesis II SE gas grill. I often use them together such as when I smoke a cowboy ribeye on the PB then reverse sear it on the Genesis. The latter can reach nearly 700 F and by using a cast iron skillet, I get a beautiful sear on the entire side of the steak. Don’t really care about grill marks.

    I’m looking forward to meeting new friends and learning much from them. Caio from Lewisville, NC.

          Thanks! Costco has been carrying those prime, bone-in ribeye steaks for a few months now.

                Welcome from Virginia!


                  Welcome from Maryland. Got some Scott’s BBQ sauce on my shelf right now. My family roots are Johnston and Sampson, so my BBQ preferences are pretty set in stone too.

                            Welcome! Use a similar method on those ribeyes with my PBC and PK grill. That steak looks perfect!

                          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’.

                          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 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.
