    Hello from delaware. That large suburb south of philly.

    Well, new to the whole smoking thing. I've always been a big griller, so this seemed the next step to kick up my bbq. I feel as if there are two time periods in this year that I've been using my smoker, before ar.com and after. Before there was inedible smoked (way too much smoke) chicken, and less than stellar 3-2-1 ribs. Now while I do kinda pride myself on my rubs, brines, and marinades, this site has the technical knowledge that was lacking everywhere else. Seems like a lot of those "smoking" cookbooks leave things out on purpose. So, after realizing how much i was using this site, decided to join the pitmaster club. So hopefully I will be able to share in my trials and tribulations of a fairly new smoker, and all that that entails. I'm already planning on modifying my smoker, and taking on full brisket.

          Howdy neighbor - depending on where in DE you are. I'm in West Chester, PA, just down the road from Wilmington. Living near the home of cheesesteak and soft pretzel fanatics, we may not have great BBQ joints to eat at or even as much local access to grill/BBQ equipment, but that doesn't stop us from churning out our own good Q, does it.

            I'm not too far from you, the Newark area. I know what you mean about being limited when it comes to bbq. Fortunately, i am actually starting to get a pretty consistent legit pulled pork.

              Welcome Phil! I'm a little late to the party but I like to make fashionable entrances. Sometimes I twirl.

                I was born in West Chester, live in York now.

                Now that I'm thinking about West Chester - I think I need to get myself back over there for a Jimmy John's hot dog (the REAL Jimmy John's - not the chain sandwich shop of the same name). I thought I saw they had a fire a few years back, hopefully they've re-opened by now. Not really BBQ-related, but takes me way back to when I was in grade school and my dad would take me if I got all A's on my report card.

                  you can enjoy a jimmy john's with out the drive. After the fire, i was worried that they wouldn't ever rebuild. So after a lot of research I found out that their special frankfurters are dietz and watson knockwurst. Boil it, and put it on a schmidts potato roll, and you are good to go.

                  Just wanted to jump in and wave my hat at the fellow West Chester Pennsylvanian's! Grew up on Westtown rd just down the street from the current owners of Jimmy John's.

                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’.

                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.

                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.
