    New to the Pit

    Greetings All,

    Been lurking around for a few years and decided it was time to contribute. Not sure my BBQ expertise will inspire, but will try to contribute when I can.

    I enjoy playing with my 2 grand kids, hunting, fishing, woodworking and cooking.

        I've been smoking and grilling meats for the last 10 years and have been following the meathead for the last 5. I just sold 2 LyfeTyme smoker grills and have replaced them with a MAC 1 star General pellet grill and a MeadowCreek smoker/grill. I do the usual brisket/ pork butt/ ribs on both grills but enjoy wid game, especially ducks, geese and pheasant, venison and salmon. Interested in rubs, sauces marinades and recipes especially for wild game,

              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.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              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.
