    Introducing myself!

    Hi everyone! You can call me Guts,and im from Quebec,Canada so i speak french normaly.

    Sooooo....ya...Yesterday i just lost my job bicause of the company making cuts and stuff.It really hit me hard and i was(and still) very sad cuz there's nothing i could've done to avoid this. But then i remember that there's one thing that never failed to cheers me up, and that's grilling food! So i went buying Meathead The science of great barbecue and grilling cookbook, register myself to The Pit and here i am reading about grilling and barbecue, looking for something to cook on my Weber Performer Deluxe.

    I was planning to buy a Pit Barrel Cooker eventually with the money that i saved,but guess it will have to wait lol.And in Canada it cost 500$ so its not for a near futur

    Anyway i really like grilling thing,i hope to become a master in the futur and who know,maybe open a restaurant or something. I was really inspired by Argentinian chef Francis Mallmann who cook everything with fire and i just want to do the same,his work is so amazing.Bicause of him i want to buy a device called Chapa, its some kind of argentinian grilling device that i find awesome. If you have the chance watch Chef's table season 1 episode 3 on netflix and see for yourself,its orgasmic haha!

    So looking forward to have some nice discussions with you guys! Have a nice day and may the fire never dies!

      Question - I'm from CA but my boy went to Tulane in NOLA. He now lives in Texas. When I went to NOLA the accent stuck in my voice for a year. Still not completely gone. I don't come back from Texas with a drawl.

    Greetings, Guts ... and welcome to the Pit! Seems it'd be worth the short drive to pick up a PBC in Maine ... about $200 worth.

      Do you need one to go to the US? Just curious. Been a while since I've been to Canada.

    Welcome to the Pit. I'm sorry to hear about your job loss. I was in a similar situation once - a day from being laid off but was saved at the last minute. Unfortunately, I knew about the lay-off for 4 months and was fighting hard for my job. The only thing that could put my mind at ease was cooking on the BBQ. At the time my two BBQ's were different sized very Cheap Offset Smokers. The rust had eaten through the handle mount on the firebox on my sturdier unit but a meat hook and a glove worked just fine. I received the call that my job was saved right in the middle of a smoking tri-tip. Hopefully some luck comes your way in the middle of a cook.

        BTDT. Still have the T-Shirts. Not fun.
        Glad you've joined us, here in the Pit.
        I hope that BBQ therapy will help you through this rough patch.

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


                      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.

                      Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                      Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                      Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                      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.

                      GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone

You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                      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.
