        Right on! Spent nearly every summer as a kid in Biloxi / Gulfport at my maternal grandparents place - I love the area.

        Went to the 4th of July "parade" in Bay St. Louis back in the 80s - wow, what a freaking great time I had!

              • 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 psychic. I see a KBQ in my not so distant future....

However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.

                  * - Wines - Reds: mainly the heavy stuff mixed in with the occasional pinot noir ( I have yet to meet a malbec I didn't like); Whites: German & Nebraska (hey, I have to support the home team)

                phishbbq welcome to the pit! I went to Cruisin The Coast a couple of times when I was working in Mobile, AL, and Carville, LA, and had a great time. We love the redneck riviera and can't wait to get back down there for a vacation.

                          Nice equipment. I've got a new XLBGE and a 22 inch & 26 inch Weber Kettle. I don't need, nor have the room, for anything else. Guess I would have to let one of my kettles go to get a PBC or Gasser....or would I? Actually if I got another I might have to move out. lol

                          You have quite an arsenal. I have used many different grills over the years, but have settled in on trying to do everything on a large Big Green Egg.

                          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.

                          Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                          Placeholder

                          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.

                          Placeholder

                          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.

                          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.
