    Joing the Amazing Ribs Club

    Hi I go by mountainsmoker as I live just outside The Great Smoky Mountain National Park in NC. I have been using the Weber 22 kettle to smoke all types of meats for over 40 years. I am 66 now and bought my first one in the late 70's. I have belonged to a numerous number of barbeque organizations as I have moved around the country. First while as an officer in the Navy and then while working for my company. I thank you for letting me join temporarily and I will definitely join permanently Look forward to learning from you and being able to also help with my experience.

                        Well I guess a former AF enlisted man can welcome a Navy officer to the group. Especially if you were a flyboy. My dad went thru Annapolis but then flew 10 years for the AF. So Navy/AF is in our blood. Welcome to the Pit.

                              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.

                              Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                              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.

                              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.

                              masterbuilt gas 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'.
