    Hello from Dallas, TX

    Recently retired, and looking for more info and recipes. Have a Weber gas grill, and a Brinkmann dome smoker( a gift from the kids). Have always grilled, but nothing notable. Looking forward to learning from the Pitmaster.

    Welcome pwrea




        Welcome to the pit! I used a dome smoker for years, but now have a BGE now. I am retired, too, and we are planning to move to Dallas some time in 2016.

          Welcome pwrea! We're glad you're here. You're among friends.


            Welcome. You'll have a great time learning from the site!


              Welcome from another Dallasite.... Where abouts are you in the Metroplex? I started with a Brinkman a long time ago. Upgraded to a UDS and might bring the ECB (El Cheapo Brinkman) out of retirement to be used as a cold smoker....

              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’.
