    New pit has arrived!!

    I just got my new Horizon 20" pit. I have done three cooks so far. Chicken, ribs and pork butt. The first two came out great but the butt had problems. I just panicked in the stall and killed it. No big deal there is always next time. I love this pit and cooking purely with sticks.

      The bad news is without pics the cooks never happened. The good news is without pics, the butt killed in the stall never happened either!

            I usually start with two or three depending on the size. Then after a few hours I need to add 1 every 45 min to an hour and I can keep a constant 225-250.

            Is there a grate in the firebox or do the logs just sit on the bottom? I can't see from the pics.

          Here is the chicken and ribs. The pork was not photo worthy.

          Welcome to the Pit Akabiz ...👍

          Nice cooks on your new cooker... 2 out of 3 is pretty good. Have you sold your alarm clocks yet? Now that you're a stick burner guy, you won't need them anymore.😆

          You're going to fit right in... Your MCS kicked in before joining the Pit it appears.🤔 It looks like you've got plenty of room for more cookers and lots of gadgets in your backyard.👍

            It's a condition/affliction that new Pit member acquire called More Cooker Syndrome. Once you browse the Pit and see all of the great cooks Pit members are doing on cookers you don't have its very common to say... I MUST get me one of those.😉 Then you're going to need gadgets too.😆

                  I figure if I was going to get into this I wanted to go all in and learn how to stick burn. It's more work but worth it and I like being one of the cool kids.😃

              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.

              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

              3 burner gas grill

              The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


              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.
