    Hi from Santa Monica, CA!

    Hey Pitmasters! I live in Santa Monica with my wife and daughter. My wife and I love smoked food, but I never knew how to cook it. Now I'm going from (almost) 0 to 100 with my new cooker purchase and the help of all you wonderful folks on here.

    I've had a Weber 18" One Touch kettle for 15 years and for whatever reason never figured it out. The Weber pamphlet that came with it seemed impenetrable. I bought a grilling and bbq cookbook that talked about two-level fires, etc., but nothing gelled with me. I was clueless. Then I found Amazing Ribs and bought Meathead's book. A revelation! I understand it now. I've reverse-seared several ribeyes using oak chunks with great success.

    I've read all the cooker reviews and was stuck between several. But I know what I want to cook and how I want it to taste. I'm a bit intimidated by the work involved with my choice, but I know it will be the right one for me: the KBQ! I'm totally psyched to start cooking with this! Now to get some wood and cut it to size...

    Welcome to The Pit!!! And welcome to the KBQ family! You are going to love your new smoker. As a lover of smoke, your wife will be so excited when she tries the food that you will be kicking out. You have a lot of smokey discoveries to make in your near future! Congrats on the KBQ and thank you kindly for the support!

              Welcome to the Pit johnnylighton ...👍 I'm in between you and HouseHomey in Hermosa Beach. The KBQ and a kettle is a nice combination of cookers.👏
