    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!

                          Welcome from St. Cloud, FL.

                          Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. 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.

                          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.

                          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                          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.

                          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.
