    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 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!

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.

                          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.

                          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.
