    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.

                            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 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.

                            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.
