    New Member Greeting

    Good Morning from Middle TN! So glad to be a new member. Our team, Serious Hog, has been KCBS BBQ Competitors for a lil over seven years now. Previously used WSMs and more recently have upgraded to twin BBQ Guru Shotgun Smokers. Although I love the WSM and the Shotgun Smoker, at home I love to fire up the Weber Kettle.

                              If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                              Placeholder

                              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

                              Placeholder

                              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

                              Placeholder

                              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

                              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

                              Placeholder

                              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.

Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                              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.

                              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'.

                              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.
