    • My BBQ grill is a Kamado Big Joe I have just purchased an iGrill 2 with an ambient temperature probe to be able to control the dome heat.

    Greetings to all from London, England.

    I have used gas BBQs for the last 20 or so years to grill burgers, chicken, steak, lamb and pork, lid open and with nothing more adventurous than a tikka marinade for the chicken and a middle eastern paste for the lamb, so no smoking, no brining or 24 hour infusing meat rubs.
    With the help of a large contribution from my wife for my 60thBirthday, I’ve now purchased a Kamado Big Joe 3, along with an eye-opening book entitled ‘The Science of Great Barbecue’ by Meathead.
    I’m now looking forward to discovering a new world of cooking and taste using Big Joe 3, together with advice from the book and this great forum.

                            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.

                            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.

                            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                            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'.
