    Can't believe it took me this long to join...

    Hello all,

    I've been using this site for several years and started feeling a bit guilty getting all this knowledge for free! Can't wait to see what I learn from the Pit...Plus a chance to win some awesome stuff = no brainer.

    I've been using the weber kettle with with a smokenator for a year or so with great results, ribs, turkey ect. Just bought a Kamado Joe in time for thanksgiving. Doing a test run tomorrow for the kids girls scout troop. My wife laughs at my giddiness, but I know everyone here understands.

    On a side note I recommend this website at least once a week to someone...

    Thanks for the support and good words to others!!!

    I was drooling over a Kamado at Academy while working out of town this week. Man that thing was purddy.


      Welcome mccalljv


        Welcome to the Pit! I understand your giddiness, since I have a Big Green Egg. Have fun.

              @mccalljv, welcome!


                Welome to the PIT!!! We are happy you finally jumped in.


                  Welcome to the Pit - you are going to love your Kamado Joe. I've had mine for 3-4 years now and its one of the best investments I've ever made. So versatile.

                  I have to make a confession though... I will be doing my turkey in the convection oven this year. I don't really care for smoked turkey and I really love the way a bird in the oven makes the house smell. It just reminds me of being at my parent's house at the holidays. I have done 2-3 whole turkeys on the KJ and many breasts. They do turn out nice.
                  I may make some smoked mac and cheese on the KJ as a side so it doesn't feel left out.



                    Hello! Keep us updated with pics on how the turkey is going. Are you going to prep it like Meathead"s turkey video? I made the pit my home page!

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                            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’.

                            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!

                            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.
