    Charlevoix, Michigan has Joined The Pit!

    I've been following the Amazing Ribs site for quite a while and decided that it was time for me to step up to the bar and join Pitmasters!

    My history with barbecue has been long and storied - it started when I tried to cook ribs on an old Weber Kettle and they went up (not once, not twice but three times) like I had marinated them in gasoline!

    In the 30+years since then, I've had three more Weber Kettles, an R2D2 Brinkman water smoker, a 600# offset that I built myself, a Weber Gas Grill(I'm ashamed to say) and my current lineup is a Weber Kettle with an LP charcoal lighter and a Rec-Tec Pellet Burner.

    My wife made sell the home built off-set before I could buy the Rec-Tec. I wanted a pellet burner because I had a hard time getting up every couple of hours to feed the off-set. However, I do have a big air compressor tank and plate on hand to build another off-set!

    We've cooked about everything you could imagine over time from pizzas (to die for) to prime rib and everything in between. I've come a long way with my ribs, too.

    Looking forward to sharing with the rest of you crazy folks!

    Keep Calm & Uke On!

    Welcome tubitz! Lots of folks here from the Great Lake State. Be proud of that gasser. Ya just got to have one or three of them.

    Got any pics of that offset? I love seeing home builts. Oh and if you ever want to sell that tank let me know. I'll come get it and grab some fish from John Cross's while I'm there.

    Looking forward to pics of your cooks and such.

          Welcome "tubitz"!! I love my Webber Gasser and have made some awesome meals on it. But, it's not for all dishes.

          Sounds like you are on your way to having a great bunch of grill/smokers to make some really great meals.

          I look forward to your pics and posts.

                Welcome Billy from yet another Michigander. My parents have a place in Boyne City on Lake Charlevoix. We were just up there over Memorial Day. I love it "up north."

                  If you get up here for The Venetian Festival, July 20 - 26, look for The Lions Club cooking chicken on Saturday morning. We'll put out about 800 halves and sell them all in about 1 1/2 hours. I'm one of the cooks!

                  We are heading up on July 29 for a 5 day weekend and we'll be up there for Boyne Thunder. Dang, that sounds good. I would have love to have sampled one of your chicken halves.

                  We're cooking chicken for Boyne Thunder, too. However, the dinners are pre-sold to the race teams. We may have a few extras! Look for us in Bridge Park in Charlevoix on July 11

                  Welcome tubitz! We're glad you're here. There's no shame at all in owning a Weber Gasser. I have one

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


                  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.

                  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 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.
