    Hi Justin, welcome to the PIt Thank you for your service.
    The PBC and Weber kettle is the setup I have. You can cook most anything with that. That being said I just about have my mind made up to pull the trigger on a Kamado Joe . You'll find everything you need on this site for great Q.

    Hi Justin. First of all, thank you for your service. Second of all, welcome to the party. There are so many good folks here that have so many ideas and approaches to all things "q," that it will take a loooong time to do them all. Season's Greetings from Houston, Alaska.

    Hey ya'll,
    Just signed up for this site and actually stumbled across it by accident since I've been deployed out here looking for new recipes and techniques to step up BBQ game once I finally have a chance to go home. Anyway my name is Justin, I'm 27, I'm an aircraft maintainer in the US Air Force, I was born and raised in GA so I have a natural love for any and all BBQ, and I'd say I'm a moderately decent cook and an extremely amateur BBQ'er haha. I enjoy cooking for my friends and hosting parties when I can I can whip up a mean batch of Thai food thanks to my mom teaching me at such a young age but I'd really like to get into BBQ to kind of blend the two cultures that make me well.... me together into something that can be enjoyed by all. Unfortunately I currently don't have a set up back home since I just PCS'd to Florida and my old setup got broken in the move but after reading some reviews on this site I'm looking into getting the Pit Barrel Cooker and a Weber Kettle grill to compliment it to help me achieve that reverse sear, any recipes and techniques that someone can offer that may use this or a similar setup would be much appreciated.

    Happy BBQ'ing,

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.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. 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.

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.

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’.

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.
