    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.

    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 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.

    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.

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.

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.

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.

Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

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.
