    Jersey Shore BBQ

    I've long been an admirer of the Amazing Ribs science and spirit. Finally decided that I needed to join for more community.

    I come from a NJ/NYC family. I went to school in NJ and I married a girl from the Jersey shore. That's where we live.

    But I grew up in San Antonio and spent a lot of time in the Hill Country. So, Texas Q is my thing. I have spent a lot of time seeking BBQ elsewhere and appreciate all the regional differences.

    I've been doing the low and slow thing for 25 years. My weapon of choice has been a 26" Weber kettle. I had it really dialed in totally manually and also with a Smokenater and Party-Q. Very happy with what I could do.

    Recently, I upgraded it to an SNS, FB2 and Pit Viper. So, I have to learn my basic temps on that. *I'd love tips on 325 deg with a *26* in. Kettle with an SNS XL.

    4 kids, one disabled. Married 26 years. Work in Manhattan. Love fishing and hunting and my Church. I fly a Mooney (made in Texas) and was a Scoutmaster for 12 years.

    If you want more, I'll give you more.

    Oh, really tempted by M Grill's M1. Like the idea of cooking on wood. Just happy with what I get from the big Weber and I don't need much capacity. Still...

        Thank you! Looks like you have the equipment to teach me. So, I see you have a Weber 26” and SNS XL. What’s a good starting place for 325 deg, since that is new to me?

      Welcome from a former NJ'er and current NY'er.

      Have a taylor ham, egg and cheese on a roll for me - although if you are near Red Bank you might call it (shudder) pork roll.

    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

    Placeholder

    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.

    The Undisputed Champion!

    Placeholder

    The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

    Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

    Placeholder

    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

    Placeholder

    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.

    Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

    Placeholder

    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'.

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    Placeholder

    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's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine.

And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
