    Hello from El Paso

    Long time lurker and finally joined!.
    I'm a retired Army pilot, OH-58D. I did 11 years as an Infantryman and 15 as a scout pilot.
    I smoke something at least once a week on my modified Oklahoma Joe's smoker. I added a chimney extension, heat diverter, a DigiQ controller with a Pit Bull fan.
    Thanks to this page I have become very proficient at smoking, thank you!!!

          Welcome, I remember a few escorts we had that I was told were OH-58's out in HI in 96, not sure if they really were or not. I always wanted to be a door gunner, but ended up a ground guy. I did get to fly around the med in a blackhawk and that was awesome, and 2 runs of SPIE rigging which was...fun.

              Retired out of that Joint Command that is stationed at Ft Bliss. Cost of living here is dirt so it's a good place for us "old" people.

                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.

                Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                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.
