    Connecticut checkin' in...

    Always loved BBQ, couldn't get the hang of it myself. Meathead's been steering me right--finally jumped in with a 26" Weber kettle, Slow 'n' Sear and a Maverick thermometer. (Gotta admit, I don't want to trash the old 18" Weber.) Still getting the new one calibrated and hoping to do up a Boston butt soon.

    Welcome to the Pit tlaw ...

    You now have the Ménage A Trois of BBQ equipment. Those three pieces of gear when used together are blessed by the BBQ god's.👍

    Follow Meathead and David Parrish carefully and you will become a real Pit Master soon.

    Send pictures of your cooks.😎


      tlaw, Welcome to the Pit from Fargo ND! In addition to Meathead and David Parrish I would and do pay careful attention to Breadhead and the other Members and Staff! 👍👍👍👍👍. The advice and suggestions you can get free for the asking would make a Culinary College Cry! Dan


        Wow man, 26"er with an SnS.....straight out the gate!!!

                  Checkin' back in with a photo of my first attempt at a hunk o' flat brisket, injected with 6 oz. of beef broth. 26" Weber & SnS and hickory chunks, 12 hours (even with a Texas crutch at 250 deg.) Hit another stall at 187 deg. But, it came out moist and tasty, and look at that smoke ring! I've done a pork butt and spare ribs, but can't find the pix. Lots of problems controlling the temperature, but I'm getting the hang of it. The secret is a long cigar and good whiskey.

                    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!

                    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 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.
