        Welcome to the Pit! I was in Lucerne and Basil last August before getting on a river boat. What a cool place.

                Welcome to the Pit from NE Washington state. Along with tips, techniques, and recipes about BBQ we have a lot of fun.

                If you like music, go to this thread to hear what others are listening to and share what you like.

                For jokes, go to this thread.

                Go to this thread to post where you work and what your hobbies are and get to know other members here.

                We are happy to have you along and looking forward to your participation.

                I have a KBQ, footprint is actually small. The wood is an issue, fortunately I live in an area of orchards and have nine acres myself. Check with tree trimmers, any nearby orchards, or firewood suppliers.

                    I am a transplant from the US living in Switzerland. I have lurked for a couple years on Amazing Ribs for most of my BBQ learning.

                    Right now I use a Weber Kettle Grill for all my needs but I am hoping to add a Karubecue C-60 at some point. My big problem is space and find a steady supply of wood.

                    I am planning to be more actively involved in the BBQ community here in the Pitmaster Club.
                    Welcome!

                    The KBQ has a surprisingly small footprint.

                                If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                                slow n sear
                                The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

                                the good one grill
                                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.

                                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                                The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                                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.

                                The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

                                Grilla pellet smoker
                                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 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.

All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
