    Hello from Northern Virginia

    Hello, my name is Bill and I am new to smoking. I love food science, cooking and "Modernist Cuisine" but have never made the plunge into smokers until now. So we will be retiring our Weber Gas grill and replacing it with the new Rec Tec Bull (RT-700). I am looking forward to being able to adding smoked meats to my repertory.

    My other hobby is researching and building historical wooden model ships. These are long term projects with a model taking a number of years start to finish - but that is another forum.

    I have many questions but will probably lurk a bit until I get my feet wet. I am looking forward to learning this exciting cooking method.

                      Boy, unless your Weber gasser is broken & in shambles, do not get rid of it. It is an invaluable tool. If it’s a wreck, it can be restored. The motto around these parts is acquiring cookers. Each cooker has its specialty. Welcome aboard, eat good and have fun!

                        And have fun! (is there an echo in here)?

                      Welcome and thank you for your support! That sounds like a cool hobby. My brother and I built a [laughable] small model of the Titanic when I was about 7. It was fun. That's the extent of my experience in the world of shipbuilding, it's a good thing I got better at BBQ.


                        Welcome from Texas. Spent some years building a number of projects in the Tyson’s Corner area, loved Northern Virginia!!


                          Welcome from up the road in Baltimore! Glad you joined us.

                            3 burner gas grill

                            The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood including dual-tube burners that are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

                            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker, placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side. Click here to read our complete review.

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It’s among the best bargains for a smoker in the world. This baby cooks circles around cheap offset smokers because temperature control is so much easier. Click here to read our detailed review and the raves from people who own them.
