    Hello

    Hello, my names Mike. I joined the pitmaster club today after ordering a large amount of grilling equipment. Within the next few weeks I'll have a brand new weber kettle 22" fully equipped with a Slow 'n' Sear, drip 'n' griddle, elevated cooking grate, and easy spin grill grate (all from snsgrills.com). It may not be a pro setup, but I'm very excited about it after cooking on the 10 year old Walmart gas grill all these years. Here's hoping my first charcoal experience goes well!

      Hawker - That's exactly what I thought. It seems like the original kettle is a mainstay, especially since there's an entire company (sns) devoted to it's accessories!!!

      First thing I suggest is to make marks on your ash sweeper where the vents are full open and closed. Once you load it up with the SnS and meat you'll not be able to see the vents. I also added a third mark where I found my kettle ran around 225* to 250* for those low n slow cooks.

      Thanks LA pork butt! I was hoping it would. Temp control was my biggest problem with my old gas grill!

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone


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.

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.
