    New Guy In Southwestern PA

    Been grilling for many years, mostly on a LP Gas grill, I'm new to AmazingRibs.com and a new Pitmaster Club Member. Just bought a new Weber gas grill to replace my 17-yr old Kenmore with its rusted-out burners and deflector plates, it'll be here end of next week. I'm planning to get into smoking on the grill (when I told her, my wife thought I meant cigs!) so I ordered a 12" smoke tube and pellets starter kit. Ribs & Chicken mostly. Looking for advice on using the tube and fuel, and ESPECIALLY guidance on what types of pellets and wood chips to use - flavors, best sources, etc.

    Welcome to the Pit from catty corner across the Commonwealth. I like hickory for ribs and apple for poultry, but I think either make good all around smoke flavors.

It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

                              Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


                              Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                              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.

                              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 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.

                              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                              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.
