    Greetings from Toronto

    Just picked up Meathead’s book, signed up for the free website trial. From Toronto, Canada. Have a Traeger pellet grill, Napoleon gas grill, CampChef flattop, and a Fontana Forni wood oven. Love ‘em all. Looking to add a charcoal smoker, thinking Weber Smokey Mountain but intrigued by the Pit Barrel Cooker. I’m sure I’ll find lots of opinions here! Click image for larger version

                  Welcome from TN. PBC or WSM will work - I have a WSM, but there are some strong arguments for the PBC around here.

                          Welcome from the mountains of NC. Instead of the PBC take a look at the Oklahoma Joe Bronco. Buch of gu[y's her got it and really like it.

                          Welcome DavidEmpey, nice to have you around! I live near Seattle and I cook on a Hasty-Bake Gourmet, WSM 22, and a Blackstone Pizza Oven. Rain or shine, cause if I wait for it to stop raining, I’m not cooking much.

                          When I’m doing my day job, I spend a lot of time in your neck of the woods. My company HQ is on Duncan Mills Rd in North York!
