    Hello everyone my name is Dave.

    Long time "go-toer" to this page. Just recently decided to join the Pitmaster Club. I've been barbecuing now for about 4 years now and as confident as I am about my product(s), I realize that I don't know it all and I still have much to learn. I look forward to the all the exchange in ideas and information that pass along through this forum. It is my intent to pick everyone's brain to understand their school of though and experience. Can't wait to hear what everyone has to say!


    Welcome Dave. Thanks for the support!!!

    Jump right in, the Pit is ALWAYS warm.


      Hello Dave, Welcome!


        Welcome Dave. It's definitely the best $24 you'll ever spend.


          Thank you for the warm reception guys.


            Welcome, Dave, from Dave.

                A big Pit welcome from the Lowcountry of SC!


                  Welcome, Dave, and thank you for your service. My son just EOSd from the MC. Looking forward to learning about your cooks, and plenty of visuals!!


                    Welcome Dave! We have quite a few Daves, military, and former military in The Pit (I'm a Dave and USAF separated).

                    First order of business is for you to check out the welcome channel and read up on completing your signature. We want to know all about your cookers and thermometers and your signature is the best way to share that info. After that, take a look around and as soon as you can post pics of your cooks!


                      Welcome Dave. Glad to have you here. Cannot wait for our brains to be picked! We love it.

                      Pit Boss gave you a take home quiz, but since this is your first post I'm giving you a full on homework assignment! Please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos!

                      Hope to hear & see more from you.


                        Hi Dave , welcome to the Pit


                          Very well, I'll go to work right away.

                          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 because temperature control is so much easier.

                          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.

                          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.
