    Hello all--

    Ben from Austin (ATX) here. I grew up in Texas but never learned how to properly cook with smoke. I love to cook, hunt, fish...generally be outside. I'm spending too much money on wine these days so I figured I needed another vice.

    First smoking rig is a barrel smoker from a guy in Austin (Riley Smokers). I do a lot of cooking on my gas grill and my weber knock-off, but nothing over about an hour -- chicken, steaks, burgers, pizza, etc. My goal for this summer is to nail a brisket.

    During the day I'm a numbers guy (officially a "data scientist"), and have been looking for ways to accelerate my learnings using data (for example: https://github.com/produktive/maverick). I have always been impressed with the rigor that Meathead (et al) dedicate to their posts, really getting into the science, and really digging into the "why". That's absolutely worth paying for.

                            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.

                            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.

                            Surely you know somebody who loves outdoor cooking who deserves a gift for the holidays, birthday, anniversary, or just for being wonderful. There he is, right in the mirror! Here are our selections of best ideas, all Platinum or Gold Medalists, listed by price.

                            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.

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                            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.

                            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                            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.
