    New member from Ventura County CA

    Been following this site for a long time and use it for almost every technique, rub, and smoke/grill/bbq meal. Decided today to try out the Pitmaster Club. Been smoking the last several years using an electric Masterbuilt. Enjoyed it until the heating element went bad recently. I am going to replace the element but I picked up a free 22" Weber Kettle a few years back and got a Slow 'n Sear as a gift this last Christmas. I plan on using this with the Slow 'n Sear as my main smoker from now on. Have not used it yet cause of work schedule and rainy weather but hope to put it on its maiden voyage this Saturday. Besides those two I also use a 18" Weber kettle, a gas grill and a built in charcoal grill. Looking forward to getting even more information from you pros here. Thanks in advance.

                            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 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!

                            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.

                            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.
