    Howdy from the Repulic of Texas

    Just want to say Howdy ! An audio forum brother (he lives in Atlanta) suggested that I should check out this board. Spent alot of time roaming the site & said to myself.....honest, truth with real facts, & pros say BBQ is hard to do right.....gotta join this place. I've been Q'ing most of my adult life. But in the last 4 or 5 years really got into it. Me & family just sold our home & bought a new home (down sized....getting old, knees bad, can't do stairs, and wanted to be closer to our son's High School).
    Sold my gas grille & Char-Grill Super Pro w/side firebox when we moved. I really got tired of the babysitting with that smoker. I just bought a 22.5" Weber One Touch Kettle, ordered the grill with hinges, their two small coal trays & a pocket thermopen (have a Maverick but with the move haven't found that box its in yet...and other stuff as well). Today was checking the board & saw that new item that might be out in June, the SnS ! I haven't even opened the box my kettle is in & still have the plastic on the new chimney (can't find my old one either-----hate moving).
    I'm a 64 year old BBQ Grasshopper & look to being part of ya'lls family. May God Bless

      Thanks ! I see you have a kettle pizza. I saw a Weber pizza stone at Lowe's while I was looking around. My son wants a pizza sometime but I'm going to wait till I get used to using my 21.5 kettle.

      Glad to be here my friend ! Besides all the cooking stuff you have.....I bet you have a rod & reel or two. I think my wife loves fishing more than me. We're bank fishers but plan trips every chance we can. Lake's are real low in this area (you can't see the bath tub ring on the damn at Lake Travis right now....51' lower). Boaters can't launch boats. Don't own a boat but still can't fish there because I can't go down & up rock cliffs to the water at Pale Face Park there.

      barney I have more rods and reels than I know what to do with and my collection grows every year. Our lakes up here are the complete opposite. Last summer, many lakes (including Minnetonka) had to go to "NO WAKE" because the water was so high people were losing their shorelines to the wave action. Sounds like you need to head north for some action. All you have to do is get on I-35 in Dallas and head north!!

        Want to say thank you for all the welcomes. Didn't know there was a Weber "cult" until I bought my kettle.

        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’.

        GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


        GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily 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.
