    Hello from NC

    Hi Y'all, My name is Jim Andersen,
    I love all the information on this site. I live in NC heart of BBQ country. I presently have a webber 22" kettle that I bought in 97. I never released I had a smoker when I bought it ... my first smoker was a masterbuilt electric smoker that gotme hooked on the taste of smoked meat ... I have since got rid of that and I bought a Rec Tec Bull last September, I love that grill. I still have my gas grill also. My next grill will probably be a stick burner of some sort. Maybe even the Wildside grill that Rec Tec sells ... this weekend I'm going to smoke a chuck roast, poor mans burnt ends ... hope it turns out well ..
    thank's y'all have a great day!

                              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                              the good one grill
                              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.

                              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                              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.

                              The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

                              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.

                              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                              PK 360 grill
                              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                              kareubequ bbq 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.

All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                              Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
