    Hi from a newcomer

    Hi Everyone, I’m up in South East NH, about 15 miles from the ocean. I love cooking on the grill, an old Weber ( rebuilt a few times), at least 3-4 times a week, rain or snow doesn’t matter. The last 15 or so years have tried a few different smokers. I started with a Brinkman barrel water smoker and after it fell apart tried an Oklahoma Joe's with the wood box on the side. I cut and burn wood for winter heat so always have cut offs of different types of wood. Neither of those could keep a steady accurate temperature making it difficult so I went to a Camp Chef pellet smoker. That has been great, set it and forget it and turned out some great meals, (ribs, whole chicken, pork butts even perfect brisket with burnt ends, did some great mixed nuts last week ) but it lacks the smoke taste that I really like on some of the dishes I’ve cooked. I’m looking forward to meeting and talking to everyone about our experiences and ways we can help each other cook better. Thanks, Ed

    Scrabwood welcome to the club. I just got a Pit Barrel Cooker and it is by far my favorite to cook on so far, although it is a cooker that wants to cook at the high end but the flavor and moisture is perfect for all meats. I can not match it with my kettle, pellet, or gas.

              Huntington Beach welcomes you and your cooker.

              I think we are about opposite corners on the map. Maybe a little colder by you.

                            Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

                            Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                            Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                            Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                            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.

                            Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                            Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                            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 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 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!

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
