    Forum as good as website?

    I have been leaching ideas from the website for quite some time now. Today a storm rolled through, and killed my Temps so bad that I have to go atc. I am fed up with fair weather equipment that doesn't perform in the real world. I figured that the hard core guys here can help me out. That is my short story, so hello from South Dakota.

    Hi and welcome to the Pit. You'll find it amazing! What part of SD are you from?

        Spearfish is the nicest town I have been to this side if the Mississippi. That is why we moved here from California. The only downside is the tritip they cut out here just isn't the same.

      A 10" canopy over your cooking equipment can shelter your cooking area if needed. You can also build wind breaks if needed

              Welcome, what kind of gear do you have?

                Welcome to The Pit!!


                  Thanks for the warm welcome. I have a PBC, a 22.5 weber, and an old 2 burner weber. I have concluded that the PBC is a nice cheap setup, but hard to control when things go wrong. l am thinking a stoker 2 is high on my buy list. I just need more flexibility

                        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                        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.

                        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                        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.

                        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.
