    Welcome to the pit from Southern Illinois!


      Welcome from Wilson County, Texas!


        Welcome from St. Cloud, FL.

            Greetings and welcome from North Carolina


              Thanks for the warm welcome, folks. With all the recommendations I now feel compelled to mention all the equipment I already have: a Slow n Sear original, ThermoPro TP-17 dual-probe thermometer, and the Unknown BBQ lid hinge.

              The instructions that came with the hinge and the two YouTube videos I watched said the installation was a 15-minute job. I want whatever tools they were using! It took me over an hour of drilling over two nights in my garage just to make six little holes. I didn't appreciate how thick a Weber Kettle is until I tried to drill holes through it. In retrospect I probably should have worn some hearing protection, but hey, I can't get tinnitus if I already have it.

              Half the gifts on my Christmas list were grill-related - a pair of grilling gloves, a TP-15 instant read thermometer, and Meathead the book. I got all of them.

              Anyway, I'm enjoying the heck out of this rabbit hole into which I've fallen.

              Welcome from Wisconsin. Glad you could join us!
              With the Kettle/SNS combo, you already have what you NEED to make great BBQ. The WANTS however, will like get worse.


                Welcome to the pit from the bbq capital of New England, Massachusetts.


                  Welcome to the pit, enjoy the Wikipedia of BBQ


                    Hello from NW Oregon,
                    BBQing going beyond Hot dogs and burgers is so much fun. And so much to learn.
                    You are in the right place.


                      Welcome from California!


                        Hey! Welcome to the Pit.

                        Small world it is. My Dad was stationed at Craig AFB from 1963-1968. I still have memories of the Dixie Diner and this ramshackled BBQ shack on highway 80, just a few miles east of the base.

                        I've been meaning to take a long road trip and visit Selma.


                          Welcome from north Texas. You’ve got the right start with the gear you have. Can’t go wrong with a kettle. Have fun.

                              Hello Tom. It definitely tends to be an obsession! LOL.

                              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.

                              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.
