    New to BBQ

    Signed on to lurk and learn.
    I recently purchased 2 CookShacks and will be learning to use them with the guidance and advice of a friend who uses them also.
    An SMO66 smoker, and a PG500 Pellet grill. my mentor tells me these give me a good start on hassle free backyard grilling.
    Friend runs the Totem Diner in Washington State and absolutely convinced me on the SMO66 after sampling his ribs.
    I also quilt and sew when free time pops up and I can actually set and work.

                            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.

                            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.

                            Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                            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.
