    Hello from Upstate NY

    I bought Meathead's book (The Science of Great Barbeque and Grilling) to learn how to improve on my grilling. Soon after, Wal-mart had the Masterbuilt Gravity Series 560 on sale for $140 (from $500). AmazingRibs.com reviewed it here:
    https://amazingribs.com/ratings-revi...ity-series-560

    I told myself before that I wasn't ready to smoke meat; but at that price, I was ready. Even if this grill/smoker only lasts me a couple of years, I'll have gained the experience I need for a better quality smoker.

    I'm also a beer geek and I like to say my religion is Beer and Zombies. Maybe that should change to BBQ, Beer and Zombies.

    First welcome to The Pit.
    Second, a MB 560 for $140? Wow. What a deal. I never seem to run into deals like that. Get smokin’!

        I loved it when I lived in NW Oregon (Hillsboro). I was in craft beer heaven! The Growler Guys need to start a franchise here in NY. Growlers are just now catching on.

              My last duty assignment was at Ft. Eustis. I retired from the Army there. Loved the Hampton Roads area.

              rstutzma Very familiar with the Fort Eustis area. I'm retired Navy. Other than the traffic Hampton Roads is not bad. Once again glad having you aboard and thanks for your service.

                    Western Mass is nice! Loved going to the Big E every year. After VA, we lived in 'Wustah'.

                        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.

                        Built around SnS Grill’s patented Slow ‘N Sear charcoal kettle accessory, this 22-inch kamado is a premium ceramic grill that brings true 2-zone cooking to a kamado.

                        3 burner gas grill

                        The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                        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.

                        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!

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                        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.
