    Daniel from Toronto here

    Hi everyone, nice to meet you. I'm born and raised in Toronto and spent 8 years cooking professionally. I did a culinary apprenticeship and got to travel the world and have some fun. Eventually, real life set in and I gave up the professional side but still cook a ton.

    I was diagnosed a Celiac a few years back which ruled out a lot of BBQ for me... Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and lots of BBQ sauces are off limits for me. I have a big gas grill that I use for every day stuff and I bought a smallish traeger last year....i have to say that I've struggled with the traeger at times. I buy all my meat direct from the farm and it's delicious but I'm looking to get better with the Traeger (and likely buy an egg this year.)

          Welcome aboard, eat good & have fun. So, sauces are out, but the meat is in, how about the rubs?

                Welcome! Try some of the tips on here and I'll bet that Traeger will be singing! Ask questions and study. Lots of helpful folk around. Glad you joined. There is a whole sub-forum on wood pellets and several folks have Traegers.

                        Thanks guys. My email address is current and I do have a US mailing address. I'm going to look for the Traeger forum because I've yet to discover what all the hype is about. The first time I did a brisket the auger jammed and started a big fire: the second time I got some error code and the pork shoulder just sat there for hours.

                        Sigh

                        But that's why I'm here, to get better so I can eat better!

                              Welcome to the pit, I have a relative who has celiac and if you know of a recipe that's safe for them I'll forever be in your debt!

                              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.
