    Gabby's makes on for the 14" too and I find that to be very tempting.

    The turkey really surprised me. I sweated over it for weeks prior and then day of I promised not to lift the lid and trust my thermo. came out just amazing. i find the less i sweat it with the PBC the better luck I have. I keep short timing my butts and worry about serve time. that makes worry and makes me lift lift and screw it.

    Blue kettle was also a recent purchase ofnofferup for more than I could have bought a brand new 22. stupid, but the color caught my eye and it was local and I got a cool green chair out of the deal, too.

    Thank you! Yes, I just got it about a month ago and love it! It's from Gabby's Grill's in Norcal. I got the griddle for it, too, and it is super quality, just haven't had a chance to use it yet. Gabby makes the attachment for the 18-inch Joe, too, which I carry in my RV. Thinking about getting it as it really helps in avoiding char, which my 18-inch Weber loves to do even with ashy coals.

    Hello! I have wrapped butts with apple cider and not wrapped and let it ride. I had moderate sucess wrapping but still not what I would call great. I prefer to let it ride but my PBC get's iffy with temps after 5 hours. I live on the west coast but my house is actually a few feet below sea level a few miles inland so maybe I need to close vent a bit more. average temp gets close to 295 degrees for total cook time even when I foil up holes. it's often gets over 300. i just need to play more.

    Huntington Beach welcomes you and the barrel thingy your cooking with.

    From what I understand they are bird machines. Plenty of folk here to help you. Jerod and Ron have cooked a little too. I’m sure they can help.

    I think that blue kettle may have caught the attention of RonB like the Santa Maria did Attjack

    Welcome from Winnipeg. Half the fun is learning, and eating, the mistakes we all make.

Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

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.

Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

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.

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!

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’.
