    • Beer, Tequila, and Vodka drinks go hand in hand with cooking and grilling. However, I HATE Corona. I'd rather have a Frontal Lobotomy than that bottle in front of me! Worst tasting beer of all time.

      Broil King Sovereign XL, Grill Grates all the way, Maverick PT100, A-Maze-N 12" tube smoker, ThermoPro TP-12 wireless.
      Joule Sous Vide; works great.

    I'm really glad I found this Forum. A wealth of knowledge to benefit from.

    I started grilling about 10 years ago and I've gotten scary good at it. I have an open mind and will always try new techniques to raise the bar. For example, Who'da thunk Grill Grates would have made such a huge impact on my results.
    This forum is just the place to find different perspectives.

    I also love to share my cooking experiences and recipes. I'm really looking forward to making some yummy contributions...

I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

          Welcome! I've been doing this for about 7 years and this site has been the #1 most helpful to me. You won't find arguments (just friendly disagreements from time to time) and everyone is extremely accommodating with information and experience. "Good food and good cheer" seems to be the motto.

          Thank God...

                    Tonight I'll be putting on a beef tenderloin and maybe a pasta salad. Take a pic and post it on the "What are you cookin?" thread.

                    And again, thanks for the welcome.

                        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                        Placeholder

                        The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

                        Placeholder

                        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.

                        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                        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.

                        GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                        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.

                        Placeholder

                        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.

                        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'.

                        Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
