    New member from Indiana

    Hi everyone!! I'm Rory and just joined the pitmaster club!! I'm I'm from Nappanee Indiana and have enjoyed BBQing for the last 6 years. I started off with a small Brinkman smoker, then purchased a Vertical smoker after that. Once I felt a little more comfortable with how to do things I purchased a Large Primo Ceramic grill and have been loving using it for the past few years. This last July I purchased the Grilla Grills Chimp pellet grill and have loved it! Just within the last month I purchased the Grilla Grills Silverbac pellet grill. I was sceptical of the pellet grills at first but have been blown away by the ease of use and amazing flavor! Im looking forward to new and exciting ideas and recipes from this site!

    Welcome Rory! I'm down in southern Indiana!

    Did you go up to Holland to pick your grills up? I went there back in February or March and picked my Original Grilla up!

                      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.

                      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                      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.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      Grilla pellet smoker
                      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.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      PK 360 grill
                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                      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'.

                      Napoleon's 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.
