    Hello from Peoria, IL

    I have learned so much about grilling from amazingribs.com that I had to become a member. I'm very excited about indirect grilling and reverse searing. Didn't have a clue before I came here. Thanks! I have a revamped Traeger 'Lil' Tex and a Broilmaster gas grill. Both are over 10 years old. The pellet grill has a new controller (Ortech) and most internals have been updated as well. Love my gas grill but am thinking of going charcoal to up my game on steaks. Looking at the PK and Broilmaster's charcoal grill. Haven't decided yet. Anyway, thanks for all the hard work you guys put into this site.

    Grill on,
    Wayne

          Welcome! Does Peoria actually have a scale model of solar system? I understand earth is at an Amoco station and open 24 hours a day.

              Swengen, Welcome to The Pit! I the way of Charcoal Grills don't overlook the Weber & S 'n S Combination! If you add a Temp Controller to them I think you have a nearly perfect Smoker and Grill! In MHOP!
              Eat Well and Prosper! From Fargo ND, Dan

                I have looked into the Weber/S'nS combination. I always research everything to death and that is a great combination. Tempting.

                  Swengen - welcome to The Pit and welcome to The Addiction!

                  I can second the Weber kettle and the SnS combination. It's a killer combination and really cost effective. Lotsa great BBQ has been cooked on Webers. You can't beat a good kettle for all round performance without spending a LOT more money!

                  Here's to great cooks and even better memories with family and friends!
