    Greetings from Miami

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone. New member looking for real world guidance on smokers for an intermediate level griller. I have a pit barrel which is great for some things but looking to upgrade results for my brisket, pork butt etc. prefer minimal intervention in the process so thinking pellet smoker or Kamado. Thanks!

    Welcome from the Land of Enchantment! Lots of people here with a PBC that will help with dialing in that cooker - or help you spend your money too


      Welcome to the pit from Southern Illinois! Happy Thanksgiving!


        Welcome to the Pit! We can always use another barrelhead here on the Pit!

        PBJ, PBC, PBX!

            Yes, we have many folks with PBCs that can help. For the next smoker I’d look at Grilla Grills for pellets or Akorn for a very good kamado. Grilla is running a ton of Black Friday deals now as well.




              Welcome to the Pit from north Texas. Have fun.

                  Welcome to The Pit. If you get either a Weber kettle or an SnS grill and a controller, you can have very little interaction after initial setup.

                            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.

                            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!

                            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.

                            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.

                            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’.
