    Hello from Wisconsin!

    Good snowy morning from WI! My name is Laura and I am a stay at home mom of a crazy/adventurous/wild 2 year old! I LOVE to cook, bake, and started grilling/smoking on my Weber about a year or so ago! I am very excited to be a member of the Pitmaster club, thanks to my dear friend Richard Chrz! I would have never known about this page. Let the smoke start rollin!

                          A few months now. Acknowledging my Appalachia heritage, FireMan always glad to spread some joy. I start singing the "food around the corner" song every time I see it. And then I cannot get it out of my head for at least an hour . . . . . of course there is plenty of room in there for it to rattle around for a spell.

                        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.

                        Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                        Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                        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!

                        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                        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.

                        Grilla pellet smoker
                        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.

                        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.

                        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                        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 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'.

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        NK-22-Ck Grill
                        Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                        Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet 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 Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
