    About me

    Pic is of my wife and me (Virgil), on the Oregon coast. I am probably not the best bbq guy in the world, but I am probably close... Well, maybe not that good either, but I have done everything from Steak to large turkeys (26 lb.) and ribs. I bbq all year, and once in Germany, did a fresh salmon brought over by my brother from Seattle, while standing in the August rain in Heidelberg. I have used everything except the egg. from small charcoal to gas grills, to my favorite, my Traeger. I have had a Traeger since 2012. I was referred to this site by my brother, when I told him I was going to try my hand at making my own bacon, and some for my mom, who bought 1/2 of the pig my nephew raised. I first started BBQing back in the early 1980s while in Germany, and have been doing it ever since.

                            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.

                            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                            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 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.
