    Hey all. I dug my old Portable Kitchen grill out the other day from behind the shed. Inherited from my wife's grandfather from the 50s or 60s. Been playing around with it for years on and mostly off. I just found your website a couple days ago and signed right up. Great info. I'm hoping to shoot some blue grouse this season to cook up, till then it's last year's elk steaks. So far so good following your advice. Thanks much.


    Love to see some pics of that vintage PK for sure.

          Thanks for replies and hellos. cn.


            WOW!!! Look at that old rig!!! That baby is saweeeet!! Happy to have you here. Keep the pics coming brother.


              NICE old PK!!!


                Welcome. Nice kitchen. Back when metal was metal, and built for a lifetime .


                  Welcome to the PIT. Nice vintage PK. I'm sure you will do your wife's grandfather proud. Elk steak sounds delicious. I've had dear roasts, bear and moose, but not grilled or smoked. I wonder what "Rocky Mt. Oisters" taste like smoked? Need more pics.


                    I'm curious what I've got here if anyone recognizes it. Same size as a Smokey Joe. The legs are spring loaded and fold up underneath. The two air vents besides the silver slider on the lid are on the sides above the fire -- would that be better or worse than underneath as with the Baby Weber? No brand or info on it anywhere I can see. And sorry that the picture's sideways, I'm curious about that too. Click image for larger version

                        Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

                        Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                        Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                        Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                        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.

                        Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                        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.

                        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.

                        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!

                        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’.
