    Hello I'm a Newbie from Tampa!

    Hello I am from Tampa and a newbie to Pitmaster but have been cooking on my Large Big Green Egg for 21 years! I am actually legally blind (not totally blind) and use adaptive technology on my computer and iPhone which talk to me and enlarge text and images on my screen. I also use hand held magnifiers to check temp gauges as well as a Javelin Pro instant read thermometer which has a 2 inch display which I love. I recently got into sous vide as Christmas I got an instant pot which has sous vide button incorporated into it. It gave me an introduction but it is not accurate as it can be anywhere from 5-12 degrees off so always use my Thermoworks Smoke to monitor water temp. FINALLY just got my Anova Pro and am loving it so far! Last tool I just got is one I was fortunate to win on a FB group- The Su-V gun by grillblazer.com and it's quite amazing! Obviously I can use it to sear with control outside on my unlit BGE, even though they say you can use it indoors, I don't. Also can use it to light my Egg quick and easy. I am excited to learn many things here and hopefully will be able to be a long-time member! Oh yeah, currently using Meathead's Memphis Dust on a pork butt which I dry brined in Kosher salt overnight. I currently have it swimming in sous vide 155/36 and will give icewater shock and refrigerate overnight. Saturday morning I plan on applying more Memphis Dust and putting on my BGE at 250 Degrees F for a few hours to create a nice bark but will not exceed internal temp of sous vide temp of 155. When pulling I will use some juices from the bag that has been strained and heated and doctored a bit. Hopefully I will learn how to post pics and videos soon!

                        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.

                        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’.

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.
