    Hello, from Worcester, Massachusetts

    I bought my first charcoal grill (Weber kettle) last Fall and soon after bought a Smokenator. The family and I love them both! I rarely use gas now. Being a novice to smoking, I have learned tons from this site, so I joined.

    Hi! Welcome! You have definately come to the right place! I'm from Framingham... And with the helpful advice of folks here, I got myself a pit barrel cooker. I never thought I'd go back to charcoal cooking and I can say I am so very glad I did!


      Welcome aboard. You see the new Party Q?? Nice addition to that smokenator.


        Hey fellow Bay Staters! It's nice to see there's other people from Massachusetts that enjoy barbecue. JPP, I checked out your restaurant post, glad to see one posted for Mass; the Blue Ribbon looks great! I have a growing list of places I want to check out around the area, I have to let you all know how they are once I visit them.

          Firefly's in Marlboro is decent, although I think I surpassed their ribs with my second cook on the PBCnquite frankly. Prices are decent, but it can be hit or miss... I got leather ends on a couple of visits... One when I specifically asked for thick end after getting the thin end three times in a row... They did make it right but I had to complain and I really hate doing that... Everyone at the table had these huge ribs and I got scraggly bones with leather instead of meat...

          I also thought Goody Cole's in Brentwood New Hampshire was quite good... Better than FF but none in this area IMHO can hold a candle to Blue Ribbon or Redbones!

        Welcome to The Pit! When you have a moment please check out my tips post, especially tip #1 that shows how to fill out your signature. I'm going to move this post to the "Introductions" channel.

              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.

              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

              Our Favorite Backyard 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.

              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.
