    New in Massachusetts

    I have read Meathead's book, and even have the small temperature magnet on my grill. I've cooked thanksgiving turkey on the grill per this site's awesome tutorial twice to great results. I figured it was time to go whole hog and join the fun in the pit, if for no other reason than to give back for all the great information and recipes I've gotten from this site!

    This year I'm planning on cooking the turkey (for 12) sous vide, and finishing in the grill. I've done sous vide turkey breast for 5 for Thanksgiving, but this will be more fun cooking it for a crowd.

    Welcome inside... tell us about your cookers and take pics of the birds!


      Howdy from Kansas Territory, Welcome to Th Pit!
      Glad to have ya aboard!


        Welcome from Colorado!


          Well, my cookers are pretty basic. I've got an ECB charcoal smoker with all the usual mods, and a Masterbuilt electric smoker. For my grill, its just a Weber Spirit 330.

              Welcome to The Pit. Do you have a plan to crisp the turkey skin once done with SV?

                Yes, I plan to finish it on the grill. With steaks, i usually just sear them on a cast iron pan in the kitchen, but like the idea of a little smoke while crisping it up on the grill!

                    Whole hog, what about a whole hog? Did somebody say whole hog, I don’t see a whole hog. Are there going to be pics of a whole hog. Oh............well, ok, welcome, eat good as you already is with yer turkeys, & have fun. Hopefully someday with a whole hog! 😎

                              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.

                              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.

                              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’.

                              Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                              Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                              Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

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

                              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.
