    Hello From Atlanta

    Hey everyone! Glad to be here. I've been a BBQ fanatic since I was a kid. Watched my dad feed thousands throughout my childhood and finally got to be the guy once I moved from home for college. Now I'm a backyard guy who loves to BBQ. Looking to do a few of the backyard competitions in the Atlanta area next year. I'm experimenting with everything on my own with rubs and always looking for great tips. I will be one who looks in and will post a lot of questions throughout my time here. I'm happy to be a part of a community who loves this as much as I do. Smoke on everyone!

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

                              slow n sear
                              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

                              the good one grill
                              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

                              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                              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

                              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                              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
                              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.

                              kareubequ bbq 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.

                              masterbuilt gas smoker
                              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'.
