    newby from Texas

    Hello! I'm a relative newcomer to smoking, but have been grilling, spicing and saucing for years. Stumbled on this site while researching pellet cookers to replace my small traeger. Good to be on and a fantastic site!

    honcho55, Welcome to the Pit! Just be Patient, a number of your Texas Brethern will be chiming in directly. I have never used a Pellet Smoker so I won't blow smoke at you! 👍👍👍👍👍. From Fargo ND, Dan

                          Welcome honcho55 , recipes and pictures would be appreciated. Am interested to see how You like the pellet grill. There was a Traeger on display at a store I shopped at earlier this week.

                            I love the traeger! I had the Lil Texas, but found I needed more space! My fiancé got a great deal on the Texas Elite at a national warehouse club during the Traeger Road Show. I will fire that one up today hopefully to start breaking her in for thanksgiving.

                          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.

                          kamado grill
                          Built around SnS Grill’s patented Slow ‘N Sear charcoal kettle accessory, this 22-inch kamado is a premium ceramic grill that brings true 2-zone cooking to a kamado.

                          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’.

                          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 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.
