    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 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!!!

          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.

          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!

          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.

          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.

          GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


          GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

          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.
