      Welcome to the pit ral5970! Rectec makes some smooth pellet smokers!

                  Welcome to the "Club" from Caye Caulker, Belize!

                  Ditto on the "what part of PA?" I was born in Philly area (Abington Hospital), lived in Pgh (Avalon) from 2.5 - 5 yrs old, basically grew up in Camp Hill area (Hamden Twp), went to Slippery Rock State College (yeah, I'm "that" old that it was still "State College" when I attended/graduated!), lived in PGH (Plum & Moon Twp's,) and Chambersburg in my adult life, so there's very good possibility we've crossed tracks.

                    Deja vue. I was born at Abington Hospital too. Lived in Southampton until I was 13 then moved to Mifflin County. Enlisted in the State Police and spent 4 years in Hazleton. Then got back to State College area. Been here ever since. Retired in 2016 and have been smoking and building furniture since. My oldest son lives in PBG. Get all my rub spices from a shop in the strip district there.

                    Went to college (Slippery Rock) w/ a guy that ended up in the PASP in the State College/DuBois area I believe. Joe Morosky, good guy.

                        Placeholder

                        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

                        Placeholder

                        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.

                        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.

                        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.

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.

                        Placeholder

                        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.

                        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'.

                        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.
