    Hi Everybody!!!!

    My name is Keith Adair and I am from the San Francisco Bay Area. I am 38 years old and have always been interested in cooking since I was very young. I loved watching Martin Yan, The Frugal Gourmet, and Jacques Pepin on PBS when I was a child. When I got out of college I really started experimenting with BBQ. Started with a Weber 18 and now I cook on a Weber 22 Platinum. Since I started cooking out of college I was always trying to find out why recipes work so I could be consistent in my cooking. That is why I love America's Test Kitchen, Alton Brown and now Amazing Ribs. I stumbled upon this site about a month ago and I am so glad I did. I have been trying to use my Weber as a smoker for ages and always had issues with fluctuating temperatures which lead to inconsistent results. I have been dying to do a brisket after learning about Aaron Franklin for the past few years, so I've been hell bent on getting an offset stick burner as a gift to myself (Yoder Wichita Fully Loaded). I wanted to do a bit more research and I came upon this site. I am so glad I did. I found information on the Slow N Sear and realized that the reason I may be having temperature issues because my lid leaks a little (Binder Clip Video). Though I still would love to have a Yoder in the future, using the Binder Clips a to help seal my lid coupled with the Slow n Sear has been phenomenal.

    I used the Memphis Dust on my first rack of spareribs cooked with the help of the Slow N Sear (Used the Johnny Trigg Wrap Recipe as well) and they turned out wonderful. Probably one of the best racks I have done in quite sometime. In addition, I'm an beer, wine and whisky geek. Looking forward to learning and a sharing ideas.

    Cheers,

    Keith

    Welcome Keithfrom another new guy! I'm glad to hear you like the results from the slow and sear. I'm looking to buy my first cooker soon and I'm looking at the Weber kettle and a sns.

    Bbq, beer, whiskey. Three amazing things in life.

      Thank you Steve. The SnS is awesome. I would think about doing the 26 Weber Kettle if you have space. I love my 22 but I think the extra cooking space would be awesome to have.

    Keith, welcome to the Pit. If you do get the MCS that Breadhead mentioned (the buying syndrome) and enjoy your Weber with the SNS, you should watch some of Baby Back Maniac's videos of the Weber Charcoal Summit Charcoal Grill. Long ago I was cooking every weekend on a Weber grill. I would visit my wife's grandfather who lived in Los Altos Hills. He had this goofy green BBQ that he swore by. He said it was insulated in a manner that allowed him to cook all day at the same temp even when the fog rolled in. I saw that thing and thought it looked more like a flower pot than a BBQ. It wasn't the same color green that Eggs are today - would have been more offset if it had been. He offered it to me at one point and I declined even though he turned out fantastic products every time he cooked on it. He passed on years ago and I have no idea where the green egg ended up but kick myself for being so ignorant about what a gem he had. That's what this site will give you - the knowledge and experience from others about BBQ and BBQs. Glad you are here.

    Welcome aboard Keith! Sounds like your journey is a little familiar, Martin Yan (which took me to Grace Young), Pepin, ATK, Alton Brown & in my case a few others. I wish l had started at the age you did. You will find AR is worth far more than the price of admission. Enjoy the ride!

    PS. Your might give Kent Rollins a peek. It's not BBQ, but definetly outdoor cooking.

    Is the 26 Weber Kettle called a Ranch Kettle? I saw those and thought about it until I saw that the other Weber Kettle came with a little work table and the other accessories which seemed very useful.

    If you could do it again would you nix the 22 with the table and accessories for the larger 26 w/o the table and accessories?

      Hi Steve. The Ranch Kettle is not the 26. The Ranch Kettle is massive. I would go with a larger cooker than accessories. It depends on how many you are trying to serve. I can only do 2-3 racks of spares in a rib rack with the 22.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

Placeholder

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Placeholder

The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

Placeholder

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.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

Placeholder

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

Placeholder

Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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.
