    Hello from Salt Lake City

    Hi all!

    After a couple years of living in an apartment I am back in a house with a backyard (and new twin daughters) this year, so I've had the opportunity to barbecue a bit this summer. I've been cooking on a Weber kettle, mostly pork butts and briskets. I've been referring to AmazingRibs a lot; it's a great source of information.







    I was prompted to sign up for the Pitmaster Club today because a Pit Barrel Cooker showed up at my office - turns out my dad ordered it for me and didn't say anything. Random gifts are great to brighten a day (and ruin work productivity!) Guess I must be doing something right if he felt like he should buy me another smoker!

    It's raining today, might turn to snow, but I'm mighty tempted to fire the PBC up and cook a couple chickens after work. If not tonight, then soon!

      Absolutely. Ease of outdoor cooking is one of many reasons why.

    I've always heard that it's never a bad day for Bar-B-Que.

      As it happens, the weather cooperated anyway. Delicious chicken tonight. Covered patio with plenty airflow means snow won't necessarily deter me anyway.

              Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

              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 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.

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              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.

              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.
