    Hello from Bloomington Indiana

    Been around for awhile, decided to quit free-loading and join in. Although I have cooked quite a bit, I still consider myself a beginner. I keep a Weber Spirit 2 burner upstairs for week night cooking for the wife and I, but I do most of my weekend grilling and smoking on a Weber Original Kettle 22". I have been reading about one of the Pit Barrel Cookers for a bit and I may pull the trigger on one of those. Anyway, thanks for having me along.

              Welcome to The Pit TheBigLebowski! I probably don't need to send you the homework assignment since your signature is filled out well and you've posted a few times already. However, check it out when you can since there's picture posting tips and some other goodies in there. You can find it here.

              The 22" Weber kettles are great little affordable grills. Soon you'll be able to use it as a smoker too with a nifty device coming soon...

              Look forward to more form you.

                      TheBigLebowski It's the perfect soulmate for the 22" kettle, and fits the 26 too. That post has a link to the Kickstarter campaign where you can preorder if you like.

                      Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

                      Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                      Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                      Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                      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.

                      Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                      Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                      Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                      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.

                      Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                      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’.
