    Thanks Huskee! Yup, I am a dedicated follower of this site and if for no other reason, my membership is paying back a debt to allow you guys to keep spreading the word! Of course I am excited on many other levels to be here though! Will get through the homework!

    ​Welcome to The Pit dancingzorba! Nice to read a good intro post like yours. Like many here, I don't sauce my ribs either. I've tried it but I like a good rub on ribs better than a good sauce.

    Great job on your signature, looks like you've been here a while?

    If you haven't already, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

    Hope to hear & see more from you!

    Welcome Zorba. Anyone who's grilling/smoking in the winter will fit in great here. As for dry rubbed ribs, Memphis Dust is good, Huskee has a good recipe on here, and I use one from Dr. BBQ (Ray Lampe) that also gives great flavor.

    Ha! I had Moranis in my head too, the old Doug and Bob days!

    Haha! Yeah, I was shooting for jerky!

    I was accompanying your words, in my head, with Rick Moranis who always brings his 'A' game Canadian accent to his roles.

    Mike Babcock should be good. We need him in the worst way. I mean, the Leafs are the Yankees of hockey from a profitability perspective but haven't won since the 60's or really made the playoffs since late 90's or early 2000's consistently. To me that says more than players' egos, more than coaches - its systemic in the organisation. If a guy like Babcock can't fix this then the big wigs need to take a look in the mirror.

    To be fair though, he's just coming back home!

    So, how's it goin' eh? (best Canadian accent)

    SE MI here, and you ROTTEN SOB'S TOOK OUR HOCKEY COACH!

    Seriously, enjoy him. Mike Babcock is a stand up guy, and he deserves the best. The Leafs will become a destination team for stars, the ride begins now.

    Thanks guys!

    Smarkley, he's a special guy! Hope he's getting the help he needs though.

    Thanks, for the compliment Meathead! Toronto is pretty awesome! The St Lawrence market truly is amazing. It's where you get the uniqueness of the farmer's market in a historically rich venue all year round. Which for us is important given the lengthy winters. I used to work near Yorkville which is I think, the core of the hip aspect you mention. Nothing like a summer lunch on a rooftop patio with cool drink!

    If you're looking for super hip though, I admit, Montreal and Rue St Denis are where it's at. Not to mention Schwartz's Montreal smoked meat sandwiches, a staple and required during every visit! Now I'm hungry...

    Hello, Mike. Just got back from your beautiful city Monday. What a great town. Every time I go I visit the St. Lawrence Market. And is there a hipper street in the world than Bloor?

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
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.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill
Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

Green Mountain Davey Crockett Grill
Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
