    Howdy, all!

    Hi there. After signing up, it asks to introduce yourself.

    I'm SmokyPopPop, hands-down the best griller and smoker of my entire household (and my wife agrees)!

    I've always loved grilling and smoking; been fairly serious about smoking for about 5 years now. Had a charcoal box-type smoker; rusted through and got me an electrical (sorry, Meathead, I know, I know). I just finished reading his new book, and gotta say I learned TONS and am reading it through a 2nd time and still learning more. I also bought the book for one of my friends for Christmas.

    So, hello to all, and Happy [smoky] Holidays to all!

    Welcome to The Pit.

                    Welcome from the NW burbs of Chicago. I just “graduated” from 5 yearsish using an electric smoker. Absolutely enjoyed the food that came off of it and the ease of use.

                            The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling.

                            Saved my a$$ on Thanksgiving: 1) didn't trust the pop-up, but used my instant-read thermo, 2) when the breasts were done, I removed the leg/thigh combos and baked them till done.

                            Best damn turkey EVER! Thanks, Meathead!

                          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.

                          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.
