    Another new old guy.

    I have been smoking and grilling for decades, yes I am that old. Wore out one of the Original Traeger grills. Fell into a screaming deal on a Mak 2 Star a couple years ago. As well as the usual assortment of Webers, gas grills and the fall, winter brushfires for open flame cooking goodness. I made the mistake of showing my wife a Big Green Egg, marital threats were made and comments of sleeping in the shop were heard. I am always looking for ways to improve my techniques and of course that still elusive ultimate recipe for whatever.

    Welcome to the Pit, from northern Illinois!

            Futon'd be my first choice: fold up, can still use yer shop.

            Cots can be a right treat, on a tired an weary back, GI Hilton, purty much.

            Hammock's are harder on an older man's back, but still, a worthy consideration.

            Wads of hay, in th barn, can come in a close fourth.

            Field Jacket, an/or poncho on th ground makes fifth place.

            Sixth'd be same, minus Field Jacket, or poncho.

            Seventh be bout same same, minus th ground;

            jus mud, slime, shite, or either large, sharp rocks, or sand.

                Welcome from Chicagoland. Is the shop big enough for the three essentials: bed, fridge, phone?


                  Grills are like purses, for every one she has you get one too!

                      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.

                      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.

                      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                      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’.

                      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.

                      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.
