    Just joined up from Tulsa, Ok

    Hello Everyone!
    Meathead's book has become my Q-Bible (bought it several years ago actually) and I have learned about all the things I been doing wrong all these years.
    My Daddy always told me "Son don't ever put salt on meat before you grill it or it will be tough as an old shoe".
    So, for the last 40 years I ate shoes, now I know better, sorry Dad but I got you on this one.
    I have also jumped head long into Sous-Vide-Q and in a word WWOOWW!!!

    My first grill was a Brinkman Pit Master and after reading the section on grill tune-ups, I started down the true path of fine grilling experience. That grill got used so much I burned the fire box out of it and decided to get a new grill. I searched the world over for a new grill and decided to build what I wanted. The result is the picture that is attached.
    Thanks to all that were involved in the writing and publication of his book and great web site, they continue to be a great inspiration and go-to resource.

                              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.
