    Welcome Charles. I'm right outside of Chicago myself, Niles. Looks like we have quite a few new Chicago faces in the Pit these days.

    The food was amazing! The cost was $100 for a ticket, however it was all you can drink. We were served appetizers and then a plate of food which consisted of brisket, sausage, and ribs. Aaron and his buddy Benji were there talking to people and giving tips. They are really nice and down to earth. They were just doing a tour promoting the book he recently wrote, which I have purchased. Pictures to come soon, I'm having issues with the site saying the pictures are invalid file types, however they are jpegs.

    Hopefully the brisket turned out well. It's the toughest cut of meat to smoke, however practice makes perfect!

Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

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.

The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

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.
