    Greetings From Atlanta, GA

    My name is Gerald and I've been a student pupil of this site for a couple of years now. I've turned a lot of people on to it as well and just figured it was time for me to pony up, considering how much I've already benefited.
    About 3 years ago, I had a Weber gas grill and a Weber Kettle, and thought I was set for life. Out of the blue, I was given a BGE by the wife and kids and have become all things BBQ since, not to mention truly high heat grilling (i.e. steak, pizza).

    I really enjoy and appreciate the science backed research you guys do, especially the Myth Busting, which has resulted in several "interesting discussions" with people who cling to the old myths.

    Anyway, I'm happy to be here and hope to have something worthwhile to contribute once in a while!

    Welcome, I did some time up near Athens myself, which has me craving some Varsity right now...


      Nice to meet you Gerald. I just joined today and, like you, I hope to learn from others on this forum.


        Welcome! I love my BGE, too! I just got a Kamodo Joe Jr. An noticed it cooks faster and can cook meat for 4. It also can do a large Boston Butt. I've been experimenting with reverse sear.


          Welcome Gerald. You are really going to like it here.


            Welcome gbt01 ! Glad to have you here. Such a nice family, giving you a BGE. I've been hinting I'd like a Primo Oval XL and so far no dice....you should tell us how you got that to happen!

            Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

            Hope to hear & see more from you!


              Hi there Gerald.


                Hi Gerald,

                Glad you're here, and that you've got a really good setup. I bought a 22.5 Weber OTS last Sept. Been using the gasser for 13 years and was completely clueless about charcoal until I discovered this site. Yep, everyone here has been a lifesaver for me!

                Smokin' (2) 6 lb Hams and (1) 2 lb Turkey Ham ( for the boss! ) tomorrow. Couldn't do it without the recipe and techniques from this site.

                Don't forget the Cookin' Log!

                  Welcome Gerald. You can learn a LOT from the people on this site. I can't stress this enough: Do NOT hesitate to solicit tips and advice in the Pit. I have done so on several occasions and it always turned out beneficial.

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

                  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.
