    Great to be here!

    Hello all! I am not new to the club just finally taking the time to post.

    I have been smoking and grilling for a long time, working my way through several different smokers and grills. I am currently working with a 40" MES Sportsman Elite, a Camp Chef SmokePro pellet, a CharBroil Highland offset, and a Weber Genesis gasser. I still use all of them although the pellet and offset are used more often than the others.

    I smoke a lot of pork butt, pork ribs, chicken, short ribs, and brisket. My pork and chicken always comes out great. I am working on consistency with the short ribs and brisket. I get a few good cooks in a row and then something happens and it just doesn't turn out the same (still good - just not great). I have done a few whole hogs, turkeys, some salmon, and some rockfish just for fun.

    Bottom line is I am looking to consistently make better food. To me there is no better feeling than when a group of friends and family can't stop raving about a meal I prepared.

    It's great to be here!

                Welcome to The Pit! We hope to hear more from ya, along with seeing some of your cooks and cookers! I joined AR the same time you did, and my cooks are already better and more consistent. It helped me to become more consistent by asking questions, whenever one of my cooks was not as good as I hoped for. A lot of people here that can help, if needed. And I’m sure we can learn a few things from you as well. If ya didn’t know already, we like pics

                              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                              the good one grill
                              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 flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                              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.

You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                              PK 360 grill
                              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.

                              kareubequ bbq 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.

                              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                              masterbuilt gas 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'.

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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
