    Adam the good news is you're in the running for the GMG now, every month, with no effort on your part needed. The bad news is there is no figgering you can do to improve your odds

    You definitely want to move up to a higher grill count when you expand your deck. It opens up all kinds of possibilities. Perhaps THIS is where you should apply your figgering capabilities.=)

    That, sir, is inspirational! I absolutely plan to keep my kettle around. I'm actually beginning a deck expansion this weekend to accommodate all of these things. Perhaps I will end up with enough space to convince the wife that 'we' need a dedicated smoker....I'm thinking a small Backwoods smoker might be nice... If only I can figure out how to also win one of those Gold Medal Giveaways....

    It's also just nice having multiple grills. It's pretty common place for me to light up three or four grills to make a meal around here.

    Welcome to The Pit Adam! I too love having a glass in hand when I light the fire, which should happen in about 3 hours now=)

    Anyway, wanted to say welcome. A BGE is a very good compliment to a kettle, but don't plan on that being your primary grill. You'll want to keep the kettle for searing. BGE's aren't great for two zone.

    Welcome Adam, this is a great site with a great bunch of folks all willing to help. Congratulations on the win. My turkey looked pretty good until I butchered it. I was going to try to present it cut up. My surgical skills are lacking.

    I got home last night to find a package from Thermoworks waiting for me. The Thermoworks DOT I won from the turkey contest arrived! Thanks Meathead and AmazingRibs!

    That along with the Thermopop and extra probe I ordered should make for a potent set of thermometers. Planning to fire up the Webber for some salmon tonight and give them a run.

    Thanks, Huskee. Yeah, I was pretty excited about Meathead using my picture over there, and that clued me in a little. I can't wait to get that thermometer in and put it to work.

    And yes. I found the homework assignment. I poked around a little before I started posting. Great forum, from what I've found so far.

    Welcome Adam, and congrats on the win. You probably knew you were in the running when Meathead wanted to feature your picture on the Turkey page.

    Great job on your signature too, I take it you've read our homework assignment post for new members?

    Hope you hear more from you!

    Check out the comment I left here for some other good spots in Charleston:

    Here is another one on a new place called Swig and Swine:

    To be honest since perfecting my pork butts and getting much better on ribs, I find what I cook is better than most places serve.

    Also, if you like mustard BBQ sauce definitely try MH's recipe - I was skeptical, but after making it and letting it sit in the fridge for a few days, I am now a believer:

    Nice to meet you also Adam!

    Hog Heaven is worth a stop. I wouldn't say its the best I've ever had, but order their BBQ...don't get sucked into the buffet. Its not all that great. They have killer fried chicken, though.

    Sam's Corner is a staple! I'm friends with the daughter of the owner, and they are an awesome family.

    Never had Radd Dews. I don't get up to Conway too often, though my wife works at CCU up there. Maybe I'll go visit her for lunch sometime and give that place a shot.

    Any good BBQ joints down your way? I'm a fan of the BBQ nachos at a joint on King St. in Charleston, but that's really all the BBQ exploration I've done anywhere near Goose Creek.

    Cool to connect with you, man, and thanks for the welcome!

    Hi Adam, welcome to the Pit! Great to hear your story, I'm sure you'll be happy with the BGE. I am using one, I've had it for a little more than two years. For my cold climate (Sweden) it is superb. Looking forward to pics of your outdoor kitchen!

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.

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.

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.
