    Aloha, KBQ & Backwoods

    Aloha. Been coming here for years and so grateful to Meathead and the community for teaching me so much. Have a 10yr old Lynx and a PK grill(use the PK more nowadays). Adding a Smoker and was leaning towards the KBQ but my wood deck wouldn’t be a good surface. Big thanks to KBQ for such an amazing product! Probably going with the chubby, however want to support the AR website and the link goes to a company that no longer offers backwoods. Does anyone know how I may purchase and drive credit to AR? Thanks!

    Welcome to The Pit Rob. Sorry, but I can't help.

                        Welcome from Aylmer, Québec. I miss Hawaii so much. Spent an amazing time in Maui with my wife a few years ago. And it’s there I grilled my best steak ever: a grass-fed Maui Cattle Company ribeye on charcoals.


                          Hello from So Cal and welcome to the Pit. I don’t have an answer for you, but one of the mods might. And good choice on the chubby. I have a dedicated, large smoker and if I had to do it again, I’d choose a chubby or some type of vertical smoker. I was competing at a KCBS event and the team next to me was using vertical smokers. He pulled a perfect score (180) on his brisket. Perfect scores are extremely hard to achieve. Enjoy

                              E komo mai. We're glad you're here.

                              I lived in Hava-ee-ee for a total of eight years, two while in high school during my dad's duty assignment to Fort Shafter and Schofield Barracks and six during my own duty assignment to Tripler.

                              I'm looking forward to your take on BBQ. What kind of wood do you usually use?

                                Kiawe is so easy to get our hands on and gives a good smoke. Hard woods from the mainland are difficult to get a hold of and even if you do, the quality is rubbish.

                            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.

                            Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

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

                            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.

                            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.
