    Stubbs, check out the charcoal & komado channels. You should wait until the blue smoke stops or nearly stops, then you'll just have heat from the coals for the most part.

    How long do I wait after lighting Komodo before starting to grill. We don't like the smoke taste.

    Hi Andy, this is your first post. Welcome to the "Pit Nation". You are going to like it here. Lots of help from folks that have done it not just sat in front of the computer and read about it. I look forward to your posts and pics.

    Well I can tell you when I did my practice run for The Ultimate Turkey I remember MH said I may not need to add smoke that the charcoal may be enough. It was not my wife said it was not smoked enough. I guess it is all in the personal taste but I like smoke which is the whole reason I smoke stuff. LOL

    I usually add a couple small chunks of mesquite, hickory, or apple once the charcoal is going pretty good... works great!

    To Guy,,,yeah I am a bit late on a reply,,,,I bought my 22'WSM 3-4 years ago and have not looked back since. I did not even know of the PBC until of late. A friend bought one and is quite happy with it. I asked him how much wood he uses for smoking and he said the PBC crew said you don't need to add wood chips/chunks but you can if you like....HUH?? No wood chips, no smoke flavor from wood chips? I guess the meat drippings and charcoal add enuff "smoke flavoring"?? Can someone please splain that to me. If you notice in the videos Noah presents he does not use wood at all. I really enjoy the set it and forget concept.

    Guy, I saw in your SIG that you live in the Crestview area. My son lives in Allentown (North Milton) and gets his tractors from Wise Equipment in Crestview. Maybe we can get together the next time I visit him.

    Good thread Guy. I'm going to sticky it so new members will have a better time seeing it in the future.

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.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

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.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane 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’.

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 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.
