    Hello Everyone

    This is a great forum and awesome site.

    Got the "smoking bug" 2 years ago. Tried smoking on a gas grill at first, . I think the challenge there gave me the bug. Went out and bought a Vision Grill (different brand BGE). Now I smoke everything, as in BBQ not tobacco.

    Always looking for smoking ideas. ​Smoked a 10lb prime rib the day after my daughters wedding recently. Thought I died and went to haven. It was that good.

    Hope to learn a lot here and maybe learn enough to contribute info too. ​

    Welcome Aboard rwhnze


      Welcome to the Pit from Fargo ND, You might want to check the Site for Modifications people have made to offset smokers! I also own a COS (cheap) according to Meathead which I Have Modified, first I added Fire Brick to both the firebox and the grill chamber. This helps to hold the heat and even it out. Then I had diverter pans made up (local furnace man) carries the heat and smoke across the cook chamber, the second is attached to the lid under the chimney essentially reversing the flow allowing temp and smoke to stabilize across the chamber! Let me know if this is all clear as mud! Dan

        I like the idea of an offset smoker because someday I would like to smoke using logs instead of lump and a couple of junks of oak, hickory cherry etc, that's common with ceramic smokers.
        The only mods I have done to my Vision Grill is upgraded the gasket. Use it 1 - 3 times a week, winter, summer, rain, snow or sunshine. Just love the smell of BBQ!!!

      Welcome!! Thanks for the support!!!

          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.

          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.
