    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.

                              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                              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!

                              Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

                              Green Mountain’s portable Davy Crockett Pellet 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 Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.

                              Thermapen One Instant Read Thermometer

                              The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

                              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.

                              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.

                              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.
