    Markocius (Pronounced: Mar-Co-Seeus)

    Hello Folks!
    Been coming to this site for quite a while now, and I have found some major tips and tricks to make my outdoor grilling experiences some wonderful moments in time. I consider myself a novice when it comes to smoking meats, but my hamburgers and steaks have always gotten GREAT reviews.

    Right now, I have a gas grill, which I can easily set up to serve as a smoker. However, I am looking into getting a more elaborate setup for both smoking and grilling. I love my BBQ Brisket, and I am getting better with each one I cook.

    In my inventory of cooking appliances, I was given a Brinkman Smoke-N'-Grill Bullet smoker as a Birthday present last year. She's great for a cheap smoker, however, I am learning new tricks, and will most likely use my metal fabrication skills to modify it to be a better smoker. Unfortunately, the reviews on site say that it is not recommended, and I'd have to agree. However, I can fabricate some things to make it better.

    My gas grill was another gift a couple years back and has served me well, she is showing some major age, and was not well cared for before I got it. That can change, as I have said before, I just need to fabricate some replacement parts. Then go through a seasoning process, and then all SHOULD be good.

    At this time, I want to thank the Hosts for this great and informative website. I have learned so much, and continue to learn more each time I visit. I have even turned my Brother onto this website, who is by his own rights, is a pretty decent BBQ'er himself.

    Any tips, or suggestions on the ECB Brinkman Smoke-N'-Grill mods, please feel free to let me know.

                  A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs

                  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.

                  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.

                  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!

                  Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                  3 burner gas grill

                  The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  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.
