    Hello From NE PA

    Hello from Northeast PA. I have been infatuated with BBQ since I was a child. My grandmother was from Greenville NC. I only went there once when I was a toddler so my infatuation was developed by the stories I was told about my Uncle Rays ribs and pork shoulder. I do not have what I would consider good BBQ available around me so i dot know what is good or not! I am a self-proclaimed foodie who devoured Meatheads book during an illness which ironically enough compromised my ability to eat. As I healed and started consuming solid food again it was summer time so it was grilling time. That summer, 2016, my wife won a beautiful Weber Kettle which I bought a SnS for and started elevating my results as I practiced based on Meathead’s book and advice I received from rummaging through the endless threads found on this site. My COS quickly became second fiddle to the Webber with the SnS. I judge what is good only from the reviews I get from my guests. I think I have a pretty good taste for BBQ now as well, although as I said earlier, I don’t have anything competition level or professional near me to compare with. I have done numerous pork shoulders and ribs which are in my opinion getting better with each cook. I have also tackled one brisket. Not having a Franklins within 4 hours drive, I don’t have anything to gauge its success by but it tasted good as I followed some of Franklin’s advice, some of Meathead’s, and lots from the various posts here. This year I upgraded to a YS 640 and a FireBoard which has added a huge amount of consistency to my cooking. My original dream rig was a Lang but I don’t think I would be make it through a night of fire tending and be very friendly the next day! In any case, hello, and thanks for providing so much valuable information. This site is my go to for everything grilling, I have improved my BBQ’ing 10 fold from being a member. This site, Meathead’s book and BBQ in general, created a strong desire inside me to get past my medical issues and eat solid food again. I can’t tell you all how much it means to me. Jeff

          Welcome!

          Four hour’s drive is a pretty big radius. It will get you to Chubby’s in Emmitsburg, MD.

            Ha! Ha! Chubby's is 8 miles from my house. For some reseason I've only been there once years ago when my kids went to school in Emittsburg. Sounds like you've been there Mosca. I don't remember if it was good or not. What did you think?

            I know the owner, Tom, so I might be biased. The ribs and pork are excellent, the sides, especially the beans and collard greens, are outstanding. The gooey butter cake is worth saving room for.

            If you go, tell him Mosca from Roadfood sent you. It probably won’t get you anything, but connections can be valuable.

                            Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                            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.

                            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.

                            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                            Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                            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. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                            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.
