    Guy

    My name is Guy. I just joined the Pitmaster's Club. I have been cooking (grilling) a long time but I did not know all of the info and science that goes into it. All I knew was that my food was not as good as others I have tasted. I figured there must be more to it than I thought. I found this website and am trying to soak up everything in it. I have a Weber gas grill, Weber 22 Kettle and just purchased my first Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker. I have a Thermapen and a Maverick with wireless remote. I also change the Weber thermometer that was on the lid of my WSM to a Tell Tru. I live in the Northwest Florida (Destin, Niceville, Crestview, Pensacola) area. I am looking forward to meeting the other members in the club.

              Ernest, I brought the Tru Tell in around 2008 it was the best reviewed on the market at that time it has worked fine for my kettle grill. I just brought one for the lid on my WSM smoker. I don't depend on it as much as the others I have.

                If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                slow n sear
                The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

                the good one grill
                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

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                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!

                The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                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.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                Grilla pellet smoker
                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.

                Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                PK 360 grill
                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.

                kareubequ bbq 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.

                Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                masterbuilt gas smoker
                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                NK-22-Ck Grill
                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. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
