    Robert Besst (BesstR)

    I was introduced to smoking meat at an early age growing up in Iowa. My dad had a friend with an old refrigerator turned into a smoker. It was mostly fish in the summer some of you may cringe but his smoke carp was amazing plus whatever else we would catch. Then in the winter was the typical meats like venison, pork, and beef. I was always amazed how different woods would make things taste. No advanced forward first grill/smoker was a offset New Braunfels one of the originals heavy steal. My wife sold it at a yard sale and I was upset and she bought me a Weber performer to replace it. I always miss the old smoker and my neighbor after weeks of negotiations bought it back and surprised me with it. This Christmas my wife bought me the Pit Barrel Cooker after I talked about it for weeks. Long story short I am learning about the new cooker and excited about what I can do with it. I live in Spring Valley, AZ if anybody is out this way look me up we can enjoy a beverage, cigar and do some grilling. Semper Fi

                        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.

                        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                        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.

                        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.
