    Picked the wrong week to quit smoking

    Hey everyone, Joe here. I live just north of Chicago and cook outside about 9-10 months of the year. This shelter-at-home order has inspired me to work on my grilling and smoking game, and I got a Weber Summit Charcoal today from Backyard Barbecue Store in Wilmette.

    I am not tied to any regional BBQ style and like to do ribs, pork shoulder, rotisserie chicken, smoked salmon, and tri-tip. By the end of this summer, I hope to smoke my first brisket on the Summit Charcoal. I usually cook American-style BBQ, but occasionally make some international recipes for fun. My favorite BBQ books are Raichlen’s BBQ Bible, Ray Lampe’s Dr. BBQ, and, of course, Meathead.

    When I’m not grilling or smoking something, I like biking, seeing live music, and traveling (occasionally to see my favorite band, Phish).

          Welcome from south Texas! Glad you’re here! The only weather challenges here are days (months) of extreme heat!🤣🙄. Grilling/smoking season is pretty much always.

                          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.

                          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.

                          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.
