    Hello from VA

    I am a BBQ enthusiast that loves to cook and still has lots to learn. Been a student of the AR community for a while now, I bought a Slow n' Sear 1.0 on the advice of the great review here and it hasn't left my kettle since. What a versatile contraption!

    I've done my share of ribs, steaks, spatchcocked chickens and turkey parts (thanks again, Meathead!) both on the grill and in the oven and hope to visit the world of large hunks of beef very soon. I have a 9 lb packer staring at me from the freezer - it scares the pants off of me but the time has come to face the music. I've also confined my cooking of veggies to indoors, but perhaps that will evolve as I learn enough to stop everything from falling through the grates.

    Looking forward to learning more and contributing what I can. Cheers, everybody!

    Welcome to the Pit from Dallas, Texas!


      Welcome to the Pit from Colorado. Show that hunk of beef who's boss. Just take it slow. You go this.

            Welcome from California.
            My first brisket sat in the freezer for a couple of months because I was intimidated. Finaly said what the heck. Followed Meatheads instructions and it was the best I had ever cooked, (of course it was the 1st!) I have cook about 6 of them now and they just get better.
            Step off the edge and fall in.

                Yup, move the veggies outdoors, you’ll never regret it. Do it ASAP! Shorter cook time than meat
                but, delicious. Start simple, olive oil & salt. Welcome, eat good & have fun!

                              Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

                              Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                              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 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.

                              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                              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!

                              Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                              3 burner gas grill

                              The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                              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.
