    Hello from Harrisonburg, Virginia

    Hello everyone, I'm new to The Pit, but not new to the site. I first found AR about 5 years ago when I was searching for my first smoker. Up until then I had just used cheap small charcoal grills for burgers/steak/chicken, but had decided I wanted to give smoking meat a try since I loved going to local BBQ restaurants. After reading through AR reviews, as well as several other sites, I decided on a PBC, and couldn't have been happier with my decision. After a few years of practicing with the PBC, tweaking rubs and sauces, (and with a lot of help from AR!) I could make fairly consistently what I consider good BBQ (mostly butts, ribs, and pork loin which I would slice fairly thin for sandwiches). I cooked for a few small gigs for friends, not really for profit, just for fun such as small parties and even did a few pork loin's as a wedding gift to a good friend of mine for the main course at his wedding reception (a large undertaking for a fairly small smoker!) The desire for cooking larger quantities drew me back to AR this summer as I began my search for a larger cooker. I have no plans of doing this commercially so I didn't need anything huge. After a lot of deliberation, I decided on a Meadow Creek PR42 with charcoal pull-out, doors in the lid, and the charcoal pan for grilling. I've only used it once, (I posted about the cook in the show me what you're cooking section), but have liked the results thus far. I know I couldn't be producing BBQ that people enjoy as much as they do if it weren't for the information, directions, suggestions, and recipes on this site, so I decided as I was ordering the new cooker, that it was also time that I gave back to the site that gave me so much. I've really enjoyed what I have had time to read so far, and look forward to continuing to meet and learn from you great folks here in The Pit!

                            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 Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                            the good one grill

                            The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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 All In One

                            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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                            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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                            Their 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.
