    Greetings from Vancouver, CANADA

    Hi There,

    Here's a little background info on me; Although I've enjoyed BBQ my entire life, I was bitten by the bug in a big way back in 2003 while travelling down Route 61 chasing the Blues with my father. We were blown away by the large smokers and great food available at many of the gas stations through Mississippi and Louisiana. Shortly after that, I bought my dad a Weber Smokey Mountain, which I would borrow frequently. Then a few years ago, I bought a Primo Oval Jr. A great smoker but I wish the medium-size one was available when I bought it! It's only my wife and I that I need to feed but I enjoy having friends over and cooking the big cuts. My pipe dream is to one day leave the chaotic life of providing A/V solutions to corporate events and to open up a BBQ & Blues bar, my two real passions. Until then, I will continue to hone my craft and enjoy the fruits of my labour...

              Hello from Calgary!


                Welcome Suave Dave ! I drove to vancouver from los angeles over the xmas/new year holiday. i loved your city! Lots of great eats although didnt fund much by way of BBQ. We did have some killer tonkatsu ramen and greta sushi! Also, Ernest Ice Cream is one of my all time favorites! Cheers!


                  Welcome to the Pit! Louisiana is my home state where it is food, music and festivals every weekend of the year. You can get the food and music daily. The local TV station has cooking and music just about every week day morning.


                    Welcome to The Pit Dave. Glad you're here and look forward to your posts.


                      Welcome Dave, I was fortunate to have lived in Chicago for a few years. Buddy Guy, ribs and Portillo's for hotdogs was a weekend treat.


                        Welcome to The Pit Suave Dave! What a cool plan, BBQ & blues joint. I hope it works out for you.

                        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.

                        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.

                        Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

                        Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                        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’.
