    Figured it was about time I introduced myself.

    I've been using this website for 6 years. I knew nothing about cooking when I started. I thought good food could only be eaten at a restaurant but I wanted good bbq so I purchased my smoker based on reviews on this site. Now 6 years later I'm still getting the hang of it but at least I know when my smoker is right side up lol. All joking aside you guys have been great! I now eat meat that's better than any restaurant I've been to and the people around me have become spoiled.

    I currently use GREEN MOUNTAIN GRILL DANIEL BOONE. I also cook sous vide and often use both in the same cook. I'm always in the market for a bigger smoker but the budget tells me I'm not in the market for one.

                    Well, I would say welcome to the Pit, but you have been here longer than I have. So, welcome to the Pit conversation from Dallas!


                      A 6-year-lurker must have soaked up a lot of good tips to use on that GMG Daniel Boone. Smoke on and share some of your cooks with us. It's nice to have you posting.

                            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.

                            Our Favorite Backyard 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.
