    Howdy from Onalaska, Texas

    Hello everyone. New to the Kettle and Slow N Sear world but not to grilling and Bbq, I presently cook on an old Oklahoma Joe stick burner, have a walk in smoke house, electric smoker (Masterbuilt) a cast iron Hibachi and a brand spanking new Weber Performer Premium. I grill, smoke, make several types of smoked and fresh sausages including Boudin, cure bacon and am always attempting something new or different. Never gave the kettles much thought until my wife bought a kettle for our son in law. It piqued my interest and after a bit of research I discovered an almost cult like following and availability of accessories that rival the AR15. The kids asked what I wanted for father's day and I put in my order for a Performer. Got the Weber Sunday afternoon and by that night I had a Slow N Sear headed my way via Amazon. My slow N Sear arrived yesterday afternoon thanks to Amazon Prime. Sam's Provided a 1.75"thick prime rib-eye which I dry brined according to the directions on ABC's Youtube page. Followed their directions exactly, cooking it to medium rare. I was remiss with the photography, only remembering after we had sliced the steak. I've been cooking steaks and been involved with many forms of Charcuterie for over 40 ears and this was by far the best steak I've ever cooked and daresay the best I've ever tasted. Two thumbs up to Weber and Adrenaline Barbeque Company.Click image for larger version

        Welcome to the Pit Cmack ...👍 The kettle has been around since Hector was a pup. The Slow n Sear on the other hand is a fairly new invention. An invention by our former Pit Boss of the Pit here in Amazing Ribs. As Dave says... He didn't invent the kettle he just made it better. There probably isn't an easier way of grilling a steak to absolute perfection than doing it on a kettle with the SnS.

        Now... about this "walk in smoker" you mentioned.🤔 Tell us about that equipment. You've added an element to the Pit with that verbiage.🤗

        Huntington Beach welcomes you Sir!
        Cmack please do tell on the walk in smoker. Boudin... yes! A boudin blanc I've been working on. Andouille is delicious too. I'm all out. Making some in the next week.

        BTW. I love my kettles! SnS is just stupid. A no brainier.

              That just might be one of the juiciest intros we've had. One could almost make a poster of it for the wall. Welcome aboard, eat good & have fun!

                • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
                  1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
                  2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
                  3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
                  4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
                  5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
                  6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
                  7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
                  8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
                  9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
                  10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
                  11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
                  12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
                  12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

                  Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

                  I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
                  I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.
