    Howdy from MiscSue

    Along with the gift of a smoker box for my grill, my son told me this is his 'go to' site for recipes and how to information. I started grilling about 6 years ago so that the main dish would be finished at about the same time as my side dishes - hubby is a little on the social side during BBQ events. I am a Quilter, a horsewoman, and for the past 7 years a domestic engineer (housewife). I have 20 years in the I.B.E.W. Alaska local 1547, I have been an accountant and a bartender. I grew up just outside of Detroit, moved to Fairbanks Alaska when I was 17, and have landed in LaGrange Kentucky after a brief couple years in Walla Walla Washington. I will be smoking my first chicken tomorrow and hubby is glad there are not nearly so many 'Sue Surprises' on the table as there used to be.

    Welcome Sue! I've move around quite a bit myself. Keeps things interesting=)

                      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.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                      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.
