    Greetings from Raleigh

    I just joined this site and did so as a way of thanking Meathead for improving my grilling/smoking results. My gear consists of a 26" Weber Kettle, Stainless Steel Drum Smoker, Big Green Egg and a 2' x 3' Stainless Grill Man Grill. So, like you, one of my passions is the process of cooking meat outdoors. I look forward to continue to learn from this group of passionate grillers and to participate in the discussions.


    Hey Ken... Welcome Aboard


      Bigfish8, Ken Welcome to the Pit! Your equipment list is longer than Amazon, I look forward to your Posts. Dan

            Hi Dave:

            My joining this site just increased sales of your Slow N Sear! After reading all of the reviews I just had to have one for my 26" Weber Kettle.

            This is a great place for folks like me that just love to cook on some type of a grill!

            You're gonna love it here Bigfish8. This is one of the best forums on the interwebs

          Hey there Bigfish! Welcome


            Welcome bigfish! It's good to have another Carolinian, and another Raleigh member to boot. Where abouts are you? I know you're going to love that slow 'n sear, I've been using it in combo with the BBQ dragon and grill grates to turn out some of the best roasts/steaks I've ever had.


              Welcome to the Pit Bigfish8 ...

              It's always nice to have another Egghead on board.👍

              I used to travel to High Point, NC twice a year for the furniture market.😎

                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’.
