    Hello from Nebraska!

    Hey all,

    I recently started getting more into smoking and grilling after being a line cook throughout college and high school. Now that I have a 9-5 job, I've found myself missing the cooking process. I'm fairly experienced with sous vide, roasting, baking, etc. but grilling has always been somewhat intimidating (mainly because I always overcook!). I have somewhat successfully used a gas grill to smoke 2 half briskets, but they were certainly lacking something.

    However.. I just got a free Weber Genesis Special Edition from a very kind neighbor for use at my first house, and can't wait to get started on using it! I've only done a few brats and burgers on it so far, but today I'm taking the dive and starting a rack of ribs. Naturally, I'll be using all the wonderful resources I've found here.

    Thanks everyone, I can't wait to dive headfirst into this amazing hobby.

    Welcome to the Pit! What you're missing is smoke. Have you heard of a "smoke tube"?

                  Welcome from the mountains of NC. Enjoy that Genesis and yes definitely get a smoke tube unless it has a chip drawer.

                      Welcome to The Pit. As mentioned, a smoke tube should help.

                        You might be able to find a cast iron smoke box at a local box store. I used one when I had a gasser and used wood chips instead of pellets. If you're pressed for time, just make a packet with foil using wood chips and poke a few holes in the top of the foil with a knife.

                            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.

                            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.

                            The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

                            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.

                            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’.

You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                            Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                            Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                            Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.
