    Quick Hello

    Just wanted to drop in and introduce myself. My name is Forrest Coy, also known as SlowRollin'. I have been soaking up wood smoke since I was about 8, and have been cooking since I was about 12. I gave competitive cooking a shot for about 10 years while I was in my 30's but now in my 40's, I'm all about cooking for my family and friends.

    I am looking forward to soaking up knowledge as well as passing some on.

    Glad to be here and, keep that smoke SlowRollin'

    Welcome, Forrest!


      Welcome, I look forward to learning some good stuff from you! If you were competitive for 10 years then you must have been pretty good, i'm always looking for some techniques.
      The official welcoming crew will be around before long, until then you can try to get that signature going, i'm interested to know what kind of hardware you're using.


        John, sadly I lost my smoker of 10 years to a tree falling through our house and smoker. So she is now cooking for the angels.... But the good news is, I am having a custom 20" ID smoker built as I type this and should have her in the yard mid month. As for being good..... We held our own at the local events. But to be completely honest, there are very few differences between cooking at home and cooking in a comp. well except now I don't have any drama, time crunches, outlandish costs, and less travel (I do enough of that for work). I just get to cook food for people I love and enjoy the cook.


          Welcome to the "Q"


            Thanks for the welcomes. I'll get some type of signature worked up soon.


              Hey, SlowRollin, welcome to the Pit. One of the mods will be by soon to give you an official hello. Let us know how that new smoker shapes up. You must be so excited to have it on its way.

                          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                          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.

                          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                          Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

                          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.

                          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane 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’.
