    Howdy from Boise

    It has been 4 years since I joined the club but kept putting off introducing myself. That was rude, sorry about that.
    I've been cooking since I could pull a chair up next to my mom at the stove. I have 3 big passions that all go together well, BBQ, Knives and Cast Iron.
    I run a ten year old Louisiana Grills CS570 that I upgraded to their first digital controller, a propane Broil King Baron and a Napoleon natural gas grill, a WSM 18.5 inch and a Lodge Sportsman's Grill. While I do lots of turkeys, ribs, briskets, chicken and such the tri-tip is my most requested item along with grill bread.

ID:	852865 . I smoked and seared 16 of them last summer for my son's reception and did 32 over the space of a week at Christmas. I typically go through about 200 to 300 lbs of pellets a year.
    I love using vintage cast iron on the grill for veggies and beans and such.

                              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.
