    Welcome to The Pit CrustyBits! Great to have you here. The 26" kettle with the SnSXL will be a wonderful upgrade, you will love it and all that you can do on it. I'd advise you to get 2 Mavericks though, as opposed to 2 ThermoPops. You'll definitely find a good use for 4 leave-in probes with all the meat you can smoke on the 26".

    CrustyBits - Couldn't agree more that maintaining low heat and knowing food temp are the biggest lessons learned from AR. Life Changers!!!

    CrustyBits welcome, I love the handle. I'm new here too. No one here (that I have seen) is going to make you feel stupid, judge or make fun of you. I can't speak for the "official" pit people but they all rock! Everyone has been really nice to me. I have a 26" and a 22" kettle. You will love them. I would recomend a thermometer first like a maverick 732 and or an instant read. Maintaining low and slow (225 or so) and knowing the temp of your food are two of the biggest lessons I have personally learned. The advice here in the pit and AR is second to none. Good luck my friend. Hope to see some great pics from your upcoming cooks.

    Hello, and Happy Fathers Day!

    Hi everyone, Northern New Jersey here, and a complete BBQ beginner. Probably about as green as a cook can be. Here's my experience level: hamburgers, hot dogs, the occasional Lloyds rib rack (I know, I know, don't judge). After getting Meatheads book and reading through these posts, I want better. So, for Father's Day, I came up with a list:

    26" Weber kettle, Slow and Sear XL, two thermopops, remote thermometer, gloves, silicone baster, charcoal chimney, grill brush, etc.

    So, now I'm committed. You don't realize how much real estate is on a 26" diameter cooking area when you've been using a Weber Baby-Q for as long as I have. Wife saw it and said "I'm adding a fire extinguisher". I've planned a few trial runs without food to make sure I can control the temps properly. Looking forward to asking a bunch of newbie questions, so if you see me ask something stupid, remember: hamburger, hot dog, pre-packaged ribs.
