    Hello from Vancouver BC

    Hi Everyone,

    I actually subscribed a few months ago but haven't had the time to check out the forums. I have used so much information from this site that I felt obligated to contribute financially

    I've only really started getting serious about smoking and grilling the last couple years. Before that I was always a big BBQer but now its at a whole new level.

    My favourite grill is the Weber 26" kettle with a smokenator. I also have a small Weber Q200 for camping trips and if i'm feeling really lazy and need to grill something up quick for dinner.

    I also just bought a Traeger pellet smoker and did my first beef brisket a few weeks ago. I'll post a full description on how that went in another thread.

    I have smoked pork, chicken, beef, fish, veggies, anything I can get my hands on

    Excited to participate in the community here and hope to be pretty active. I love food, have also ran some food booths at the 2010 winter olympics in vancouver and various festivals. Never barbecue yet, this is just a hobby that i'm trying to perfect. I work for a software company so food is more of a hobby and a passion then a job.

    Greetings ... and welcome to the Pit! Finally ...

          yeah, the summers here are amazing. But its tough to bbq year round hahaha even though I put very good effort into trying

        I have slowly started converting my group of friends into bbq enthusiasts


          Mp3gus welcome! Yes, you will be hooked too if not already. How do you like the new Traeger?


            HouseHomey My first cook was a cheaper cut of back ribs, it dried up and didn't turn out so well. but I did a brisket after that which was amazing.

            Learning the characteristics of it right now but am very happy so far. Its nice to have a smoker where I don't have to worry about watching the temp and refilling fuel. It doesn't have quite the same smokiness as the Weber Kettle though. I find pellet smoke doesn't penetrate as well as wood chunks right on charcoal.


              Welcome to The Pit Mp3gus. It's great to have you here. Thank you for your support. Congrats on the brisket and we look forward to your post on that and including some photos would be great!

                          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 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’.

                          GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone

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