    My introduction

    I've been a member for a couple of months and just read that I should introduce myself. I recently retired (kind of) and, with Covid, I've been bored to tears. I decided to marry my passion for cooking with my lifelong career in marketing, so I've opened an e-commerce store for BBQ Tools & Accessories, Route66Grilling.com. Don't worry - I won't pester you with any sales pitches; I'm just doing it to have some fun in my so-called retirement.

    For most of my life, I've been a pretty ardent backyard grillmaster. One time I entered a contest here in Oklahoma, and I got my butt kicked. Actually, it was very humbling. I had recently gone back to school to get a culinary degree, and I thought I was pretty good. Boy, I didn't have a clue. At this point in my life, I just want to have some fun and learn new things about barbecue. I've recently signed-up to get certified as a judge for Memphis in May and for KCBS events. Who knows, judging may be my new passion.

    I hope to meet some of you one day. I've signed up for the Amazing Ribs event, but I'm on the waiting list. Hope to connect one way or another.

    From the mother road of BBQ in Tulsa,

                              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 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.

                              Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                              3 burner gas grill

                              The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
