    Hello from New Jersey

    Hi everyone,
    My name is Johnny I'm from Mt. Arlington, NJ. Definitely not bbq country, but I've been to Texas and the Carolinas and I'm doing my best to bring that taste back home. Currently working with a 22" Weber kettle with a slow n' sear and a natural gas Weber Genesis for the days when my wife doesn't want to wait for barbecue. I am still a beginner on the kettle but almost everything I've made so far has come out great, I've done a few pork shoulders as well as some pulled beef. No brisket yet, purely because of the lock downs in our area, but I have big plans for a lot of cooking this summer. Glad I found this site there seems to be a wealth of information here to absorb, looking forward to contributing.
    Thanks,
    Johnny U

                              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                              Placeholder

                              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.

                              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!

                              Placeholder

                              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.

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