    Howdy from NE Ohio

    it feels great to be reading and writing about outdoor cooking again. I took a new job in the Cleveland area about a year and a half ago. We had lived in our home in SW Missouri for 14 years and lived in a house in KC for a dozen years before that. In all that time there were very few weekends that I didn't smoke or grill something and most weeknights as well. So, I have been in hardcore withdrawl for 18 months...in a "you can't grill here" apartment. We finally got our place in Missouri sold and just closed on a house here. I'm going to get my old grills back in a week or two and I added a new gasser to the stable just for good measure. The new Napoleon Prestige Pro is due next Friday and my natural gas line should be installed before then (if my plumber can be trusted). My Weber Q-3200 will probably get sold. The other horses in the stable are a large BGE and a Weber Kettle. I've been a long-time fan of Amazing Ribs and have devoured pretty much every word on the free side of the site. I have to say the review of the Napoleons here is the most straightforward and unbiased I found anywhere on the Inter-web.

    I used to follow the BGE forum closely, but that crowd gets a little too fanatic for me. I love my Egg, but don't think it is the only apparatus that can produce good food. Likewise with the Weber Kettle Club...nice guys but a little too defensive of all things Weber for my taste. I decided it was worth a couple bucks a month to talk with people who just want to cook good food without fighting about which brand does what best.

    Speaking of good food, if you're in downtown Cleveland, check out Michael Symon's "Mabel's" and have the Beef Ribs. It is the most Fred Flintstone moment you will ever have in your life.

                  Huntington Beach welcomes you Cleveland. And let's not be ridiculous. Kettles are the most well rounded gear out there. 😀😀 just funn-iing you sir! I've heard a lot about those flame wars.


                    Welcome from Eastern Kansas and your old stomping grounds. You point out the part that I love about The Pit....maturity. With maturity comes the understanding that there are many great ways to cook and what is good for one person may not be right for another. I love the primary focus is the sharing of knowledge and a few good laughs.
