    Not so new, been lurking for a while

    My name is Arnoud, I live in the Netherlands. I like too cook, to bake and obviously grill and barbecue too. Some friends say I should make a living making food, but for now I'll stick to being an IT network nerd.

    I'm using a big weber kettel:

    often together with a slow 'n sear:

    And I've recently added an bbq guru dx3, that still needs proper mounting ;-)

                        Welcome to the Pit! As a 26.75” kettle owner myself... I love your setup! A few questions if you don’t mind...
                        -Did you find the installation of the guru to be easy/straight forward?
                        -What kind of low n slow burn times are you getting with the SnS loaded down with charcoal?
                        -Where to do have the guru blowing air into the kettle in relation to the positioning of the SnS?
                        -Do you notice any difference when using the guru vs not using it (ie fuel burns faster, weird burn patterns, etc?)
                        -How stable are temps when using the guru and what do your vent settings look like? Assuming vents are almost completely closed on top/bottom?

                        Thanks!!

                          easy, as I drilled a hole in the kettle at the back. SnS sits above it.
                          If I don't make mistakes, full load runs for 7 to 8 hours at 225.
                          With the guru it saves me on coal, bottom vent should be completely closed, top vent open at least half.
                          Initially it will overshot some, but after that it's quite are stable, even when adding water or coal on long session, it will go up a bit after long opening, but not too Bad. I've checked it with the Weber app & second thermometer

                            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.

                            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 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.

                            kareubequ bbq 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.

                            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'.
