    Checking things out

    I did some research on barbecue books and ended up buying "Meathead". I am on a free trial checking things out and so far this looks to be a great place to learn. I recently bought a Weber Spirit II 310 and want to learn how to make great barbecue. Does anybody have an opinion on this grill? Thank you

    Max Good Huntington Beach welcomes you sir. I think that grill was reviewed by Max on the free side.

    some one will likely be along soon who actually knows something.



      Welcome from Houston! I don’t have a spirit, but I do have a genesis and will tell you that in my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a Weber gasser! A word of caution, MCS (more cooker syndrome) runs rampant here. I too started with just a gasser, now I have added a Kettle and an Oklahoma Joe offset smoker with eyes on several more cookers. And mine is a mild case. . Welcome again and enjoy the Pit!


        Welcome from Maryland. I have this grill in stainless and really like it. Bought some Grill-grates and a rotisserie for it and it is my goto grill for many evening meals.

                Welcome from southeast Michigan!


                  I love the thing. I originally bought it for Spare the Air days and times when I need to fire things up quickly, but I'm finding I can do many things with it...particularly indirect cooking. Still learning to use it, but already eyeballing grill grates and a rotisserie...

                            Welcome from the mountains of NC. After I did the trial for a couple of days I pulled the trigger. It's cheaper than some magazines I get on cooking. LOL

                            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 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!

                            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.

                            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.

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane 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’.
