    Hello from Saint Louis

    Hello all. I've been a member for a long time but have never posted. Thought I would finally introduce myself. I am David and new to the Saint Louis area. I have a Weber 22" Performer Deluxe and a Camp Chef double burner for sautéing and to get my cast iron pans nice and hot for steaks and reverse sears. I have not had/used charcoal in about a decade so a lot of testing right now. Really struggling with keeping consistent temps. So used to gas and adjusting as I need it. Thanks to all the helpful posts out there for getting the charcoal grill going and keeping a consistent temp.

                Welcome from NE Florida. After a few more cooks you'll know that kettle and won't have any problem managing temps.

Some companies pay a finder's fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product.

                              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.

                              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!

                              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.

                              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.

                              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.

                              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'.

                              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                              NK-22-Ck Grill
                              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.
