    New member from Texas

    Hi, I am Greg and I am a PhD Scientist (Physiology) self taught home cook. Also, I am a Recipe Contester for 20 years now. Been to Pillsbury Bake Off and many contests, both in person and submitted. Meet so many people. Really like trying and coming up with new recipes. I am a Texan, so by state law I have to know how to grill. Learned many things from my father and came up with a few things on my own. Hope to learn some new things and meet some new interesting cooks.

          Welcome from TN. We love new recipes here in the pit. I am not one to come up with new ones, so I REALLY love new recipes. Looking forward to trying some of yours.

                      Welcome to the Pit! Only one question. Do you put beans in your chili?

                        I know that it almost illegal in Texas to put beans in chili, but yes I do. It is because I am cheap and I can take a bit of beef and a bunch of beans and make a meal for my whole family. Plus, I like beans.

                            maverick PT55 thermometer

                            A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

                            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 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 Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                            the good one grill

                            The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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

                            Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                            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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                            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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                            Placeholder

                            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.

                            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                            NK-22-Ck Grill

                            Their NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                            GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

                            grill grates

                            GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.
