    Hello from Ma

    Hi I’m from Mass just northwest of Boston. I use a Weber gas grill and a brinkman smoker. I need to upgrade the smoker as all we smoke Geese, Hams and Fish on it been doing it for years.I will be checking out this site for recomending a replacement smoker as I’ve replaced the brinkman to many times over the years I would like to have the next one be my last one.

    I dated and married my high school sweetheart been together for 46 years. I had a Kidney Transplant in 2004 she donated one of her Kidneys to me. We love to travel and have to many National Parks.

    We both love grilled food, I found this site from a cookbook that my son gave me, I tried reverse searing some strip steaks for the first time and they came out awesome, If I had not read Meatheads cookbook I would never have tried this method, I will be using this method more in the future.

    I enjoy Flyfishing,fly tying and photographe as hobbies

    Welcome to the Pit!


      Welcome from south Texas!


        Welcome from Maryland


          Welcome to the Pit from Dallas! I cooked on a Brinkman for years and have been cooking on a Big Green Egg for ten years now. Cold weather doesn’t stop you cooking. While our temperature doesn’t get as low as yours I did an over night one at 17 degrees with no problem.


            Mom is that you? Oh....you mean Mass....ok well welcome anyway !! Look forward to some of your cooks !!


              Welcome Steve from Va Beach. I am a transplanted New Englandler (NH) and also enjoy fly fishing.
              My sister and all her kids (all married) live in Mass.


                Welcome to The Pit Steve. In order to give you better advice on a new cooker, it would help if you gave more info:
                type of fuel (wood, gas, charcoal, electric, pellets)
                type of cooker (dedicated smoker, grill, combo)
                how many people you want to be able to cook for
                do you like tending it or do you want to set and (almost) forget


                  Welcome to the Pit from the California Delta. Getting a new smoker will be exciting. Like mentioned above define your needs/wants.


                    Welcome from Colorado ...


                      Huntington Beach welcomes you.

                      New Smoker, be careful.. folks around here are real good at spending other people’s money. They won’t steer you wrong though.


                        Welcome from TN. Let me be the first to reach into your wallet. I started on a Brinkman water smoker and graduated to a Weber Smokey Mountain. It is probably the closest to a Brinkman. I have been using a WSM for I around 20 years now.




                            Yup, we are here to help as HouseHomey said. How much money ya got? We’ll point you in the right direction. Mebbee get you 2 or 3 new cookers, yeah. Welcome, eat good & have fun!


                              Welcome from NE Florida and what a great story you have to tell! Looking seeing you around here.

                              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.

                              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                              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.

                              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.
