    Bracing For Winter

    My name is Geoff I live in NH and have been looking at this site for several months. I use a BGE XL for my smoking as well as a weber kettle.

          Welcome. The BGE is a good cooker to have when winter rolls around.

              Welcome to the Pit! I have a BGE large but our tempts don't drop like yours. Low and slow is never a challenge no matter what the outside temp, but when the temp is 95+ and the humidity is 95+ sticking with it when grilling can be a challenge. I love the taste and ease of low and slow. My favorite is Boston Butt. What's yours?

                  Welcome from the Canadian Prairies! I am also bracing for winter, charcoal goes much, much faster when it is -30 and blowing snow!

                      It's always nice to have another Egghead in the Pit.👌

                        I can relate to the Canadian Prairies bbqoaf, I cindered 3 racks of ribs on a sub zero Sunday. The grill turned into a torch in just a few minutes. Definitely a different technique compared to a July afternoon!

                            Welcome, I don't get to use my little kettle often enough, but I just through some meat on there 10 minutes ago. Poor thing felt left out.

                              Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                              Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                              Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                              Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                              Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                              Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                              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.

                              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!

                              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’.
