    Hello from Dexter, Michigan

    I'm a 57 year old dental educator from Dexter, Michigan, employed by the University of Michigan. I just bought a Slow N Sear and they gave me a coupon for this forum for a 90 day trial. I'm looking forward to some great BBQ on my Weber Performer. I was thinking about buying a WSM but saw the Slow N Sear on this site and thought it would be perfect now that I'm an empty nester (4 children, last one graduates college this year). I also bought a Thermapen after reading Kenji Lopez's book and this BBQ site, and it was probably the best piece of kitchen equipment I've ever purchased. I am mostly a griller, but love to barbecue pork ribs when I have the time. I rarely enjoy eating at restaurants anymore, because my steaks, ribs and chicken are so good at home on the weber using natural lump charcoal and wood chunks. My wife does not like to cook much (although she's good at many dishes), so I do most of the cooking. Lamb chops are my absolute favorite, but my wife can't stand the smell, so I only make them when by boys are home---my daughter, like mom, is not a lamb fan.

    Welcome to the Pit! Like most of us here, you take the money you save by not eating at restaurants ... double or quadruple it ... then spend it on new BBQ gear ... simple!

                        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.

                        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
