    Hello Ladies and Gents! Greetings from MD!

    Thought since I am a new member and long time user of this site I would say hello. I got into smoking when I moved from MD to NC in 1999. I had never had bbq that good and wanted to do it myself. Started with an electric smoker, then to a brinkman cabinet propane. I then purchased in 2002 purchased a Large BGE and quickly realized I needed the XL. In 2011 I got into competition bbq and have been doing that for the last 8 years (only 3-5 comps a year). During the last eight years I have had the Rec Tec pellet smoker, two kamodo Joes', a Back Woods Chubby and have enjoyed them all. I have currently settled in on a Yoder YS 1500 pellet smoker, my XL BGE and my PK grill, Weber Performer.

    I have appreciated all of the info this site has provided me and continues to do so an am happy to be a member!!

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                            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.
