    New Member from South Suburbs of IL

    Hey guys, finally got around to joining. I'm in the south suburbs (Midlothian) and have been grilling and BBQing for around 5 years now. I'm a PE teacher so it's nice to have summers off for cooking! I currently own over 50 weber kettles and smokers. I'm also an avid Jack Daniels fan and Tennessee Squire.

          THAT. Is. Beautiful! WOW! Can't say I've ever seen such a thing. Here's a question- did you collect them in those colors or are you such a Weber hobbyist that you painted them yourself? Either way, pretty much the coolest pic I've seen in a long time. If you ever find time to expand your current collection I want to see a tie dye.

          Welcome to The Pit! Since this is one of your first posts, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos!

          Hope to hear & see more from you & your army.

                    Unfortunately, no. I think 4 or 5 at once.

                      All of the kettles are original colors, none have been painted. Crazy thing is that's not all of them!

                        Welcome to The Pit landgraft! That is a really impressive Weber kettle photo, and by my count you've only got half your arsenal in your picture!

                        Please tell me, what's the story behind all of those kettles?

                          All were acquired on Craigslist, estate sales, or trade with fellow kettle collectors. And you're correct, I have plenty not in that photo too. Need spring to get here soon so I can clean em up.

                          A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

                          Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


                          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.
