    New old guy.

    Hi Everyone, JohnnyE of Maryland just signed up…although I’ve visited the free side for quite a while.

    I cooked on a Weber kettle for over 20 years, then a decade ago moved to a TEC Stirling 2 and high heat cooking. Three years ago, I followed my brother’s lead and picked up a Rec Tec RT-680 (added the Wi-Fi control upgrade) and…OMG did my life change!

    Since then, a colleague and her husband introduced me to KCBS. You see, they’re both judges and he organizes a competition in his state. I joined KCBS, became a certified BBQ judge, had the distinct honor of being welcomed into the pit of a top ten KCBS team during a competition (boy, did that up my game) and of course, I am now harassed and harangued by friends and neighbors to running my smoker. A lot!

    I look forward to learning a lot and improving my barbeque!

    Welcome to The Pit.

                This was herb/butter-crusted prime rib from Christmas. We caught the butter runoff in a pan. Sopping that up with dinner rolls was amazing.

                The rib was dry-aged prime spectacular, and it was one of the most delicious and tender things I've ever sunk my teeth into.

                            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 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.

                            Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! 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.

                            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’.

                            GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone

                            GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
