    Hello from Gilberts IL!

    Hi everyone! I'm Ben, from Gilberts IL.

    In a youngster yet, just 28 years old. This summer is my first time really getting into grilling, aside from hot dogs and hamburgers or chicken or brats.

    I started dating a new woman (17 years older than I!) late last year, and inherited her ex boyfriends basically brand new Weber 22.5" kettle. It's a OTS that I have since added a lid bale, and upgraded to an ash catcher assembly, and just recently punched a big fat hole in to hook up a Heatermeter fan/servo to the side.

    I absolutely love the site and have been lurking for some time on the forums. The science of it all is what drew me in and very shortly after discovering it I ponied up for the membership. My cooks so far have involved ribs and pulled pork, steaks and cornbread! I have a brisket in the freezer waiting for me to come back from a Mexico vacation.

    Currently I just have the kettle with SnS, but am looking at a WSM or a PBC to compliment

    Welcome to The Pit Rfuilrez! Glad to have you here, nice score on the grill too. The SnS is a grill's best friend.

    Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

    Also, it's very important that you add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list in case you are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner!

    Hope to hear & see more from you!

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It’s among the best bargains for a smoker in the world.
