    Hello From Maryland

    Hello Everyone,

    New member from MD here.

    Currently grilling at home on two 22in Kettles (Red Limited and Black Master Touch), PBC, Webber Summit Charcoal, Napoleon Prestige Pro 500 and a Lodge Sportsman.

    I’m using a host of fun toys, Grill Grates, Slow N Sear (Kettle and the discontinued Low Profile for Summit), Vortex, BBQ Dragon and other stuff to make the cooks faster, more productive, and more enjoyable.

    I’m probably going to add a PK TX or 360, Weber Smoky Mountain, and Hasty Bake (model TBD) once we move to a larger property and I build a real outdoor cooking area...Primo XL’s look cool, but I feel like the PK fills that shape void w/o the concern of ceramic fractures to the shell and firebox.

    Once things w/COVID calm down, I’m going to try and find a semi local SCA event and enter for the fun of it.

    Hope to get to know everyone here and share some great cooking experiences and some great learning experiences when things don’t go to plan.

    Thanks to the team here for all the great free content, it has taught me a lot over the years.

                              Nothing to be feeling inadequate about...at one point, I just had the MasterTouch 22in and if I had to give it all away except one or start over, that would be what I would have as my one and only.

                            Wow, you're arsenal is formidable! Welcome from NE Florida!

                            Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. 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.

                            GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone

                            GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                            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.

                            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.
