    Greetings from Southwest FL

    Hello, my name is Rich, and I'm a member of PETA (People for Eating Tasty Animals). As a life long meatatarian there is nothing I enjoy more than a good piece of meat that is cooked right. I've been grilling for years, nothing fancy, just your usual outdoor stuff, but just recently started looking into smoking. I've been doing a lot of research on pellet grills, when I came across this website. I was impressed with the public end, so I decided to spring for the full cut. I will most likely lurk, because I just don't have much to contribute right now, but I appreciate everyone who has come before me to make this site possible. Looking forward to learning how to smoke meats and trying new recipes (something my wife never thought she would ever hear me say, except this has to do with MEAT!)

              Huntington Beach welcomes you sir! Don't be a lurker.

              In the words of a great American Philosopher and Patriot during an interview "Man, I believe we have something to learn from everyone."

              So chime in with a compliment, question or observation. Many of us feel at times we can't offer things to a thread. Sometimes the slightest observation or oddest question make everyone change their direction or way of thinking.

              its all good here. No flame wars.

              Peace out brother.

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

                          the good one grill
                          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                          Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                          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.
