    Hello From Virginia Beach

    Hello all, my name is Jeff and I live in Va Beach. I was born in the PI at Clark AB. Both parents were in the "chAir Force". I followed in my parents foot steps and went into the military BUT took a free upgrade and went Navy. Retired 1 Aug 09 with 32 years in the club.
    I was fortunate to find this forum by meeting one of your members who lives here in Virginia. I met him and his wife and they were both about the nicest people I have ever run accross. I started the journey on the 30 day free trial BUT figured out I liked the decorum on this site and joined 15 days into the free trial. That folks is a tribute to all you fine people on this site.
    Experience wise I would categorize myself as still learning, somewhere just a smidgen north of a hack. My first grill purchase was in 1977 a Kikuya Hibatchi Pot (clay Kamado and still have it) and have added to my herd of grills steadly since then. I have even cut a few herd members loose occasionally when my daughter or inlaws determine they need that grill more than me.
    Presently I have a couple ceramic Kamado's (Green & Black), 22.5" Kettle, original PK, gassers include an American Outdoor Grill (AOG), Holland Classic, Phoenix, Weber Genesis 3000 red hat. Have Carson Rodizio which I pair with the PK most of the time. Also have 2 portable grills from my Rving days a Woodflame Delecto and Holland Companion.
    Besides grilling I enjoy riding bicycles. Used to do the road thing, then the Mtb bug bit me tired of that and am now into recumbents. No more DF biking for me. Planned on doing PAW's (Pedal Accross Wisconsin) this summer but that has been squashed. More time to cook.
    Really am looking forward to learning a few tricks from you folks. Thanks for having me aboard.

    Huntington Beach welcomes you and all those gadgets. Sounds like you need another cooker.

      HouseHomey thanks for the welcome. Like the cut of your Jib concerning another cooker. My next herd member to leave will be my KBQ. My BIL wants it so bad he can taste it. There will be a vacancy at the inn.

      Rob, thanks for the welcome. Very familiar with the Pittsburgh area. Especially New Kensington, Natrona Heights, Markle and Munhall. Think I am the only Pirates fan in Va Beach.

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.
