    Howdy from NJ

    Howdy all. coming to you guys from Hudson County NJ. former professional chef (stopped that 20 years ago) my wife gifted me a place at BBQ Bootcamp (NCBS Class) and I was hooked on smoking after that. I use a Weber Ranch Kettle. My favorite wood is cherry and what I'd rally like is a reccomendaton for an alternative to the BBQ Dragon. Love the product but it seems cheaply made. I'd love a sturdier product for accelerating time to get my fire at the right spot. Any recommendations greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the Pit! And wow! That’s a lot of ribs!


      Welcome from Minnesota.


        Welcome, Howard. I use my Fireboard with Drive and fan to stoke my fire up to temp, but that's probably overkill for your purposes. That's a BIIIGGGG kettle. Good looking food too.

                              Our Favorite Backyard 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.

                              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.

                              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane 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’.

                              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.

                              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                              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.
