    Greetings from Northern CA

    Finally found a great site and sounds like a great bunch of interesting folks. Been smoking and BBQ'n quite a few years but never to old to learn from the pros. Just remember "Napa" makes auto parts but Lake County produces some of the best wines in CA. In fact I use the oak from older oak wine barrels to smoke and the finished flavor is fantastic. Thanks all for interesting info.

    Hello Gf. Welcome to the club.


      Welcome aboard GF


        Welcome to the Pit!


          Welcome to The Pit GF! We're glad you're here. I think you'll find there are a lot of Zinfandel fans around here. Myself included.


            Welcome to The Pit, Grapefarmer! Do you sell wine barrel oak staves, or chunks of them by chance? I'd like to try some. I have tried whiskey barrel stave pieces with great results. I second Pit Boss' words, I am a zinfandel lover, the more peppery the better.

            Since this is your first post, 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!

              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, placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side. Click here to read our†complete review.

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It’s among the best bargains for a smoker in the world. This baby cooks circles around cheap offset smokers because temperature control is so much easier. Click here to read our detailed review and the raves from people who own them.

              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. Click here for more about what makes this grill special.
