    Greeting from the mountains of Northern New Mexico

    Welcome pitmasters. After lurking for a long while I finally joined the club. I had a chance to meet Meathead a few weeks ago in Albuquerque and we had a nice chat about science in cooking.

    I have been cooking and grilling pretty much since I was a kid. I have a number of grills and smokers, but my fallbacks are a Ugly Drum Smoker (Big Poppa kit with some mods) and a series of Weber Kettles. They never let me down.

    I have been a KCBS member and certified judge and table captain for about 5 years, now. Competitions in the southwest are far apart. New Mexico is down to only one per year, in Artesia, NM. I have also had the pleasure of cooking with a team in Colorado. Hard work, but fun.

    While I love traditional "American" BBQ, I am always trying to expand into new techniques and flavors. Al Pastore pork, Greek leg of lamb, Korean ribs, jerk chicken, satay, etc. Life is too short to not explore.

    Am glad to be here. Smoke on.

    Dale from Los Alamos, NM.

                          That barrel is HOT! Welcome to the Pit! OOooo I see the Hofbrauhaus logo in your background. I always find time to visit the one across the river when in Cincinnati.

                              If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                              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.

                              Placeholder

                              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!

                              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                              Placeholder

                              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.

                              The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

                              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                              Placeholder

                              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.

                              GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                              Placeholder

                              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

                              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.

                              Placeholder

                              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'.

                              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                              Placeholder

                              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.
