    Welcome to the Pit. Might help if you concentrate on smoking meat instead of tires. Enjoy the Wikipedia of BBQ


      Welcome from Wisconsin. Glad you could join us!
      That must be the new model RecTec. The old one was a little more boxy.


        Where do you put the meat on that thing.

        Huntington Beach welcomes you.


          Welcome from Oz, you will like it here


            Welcome! Please ensure your drinking enough beer with your BBQ. It's a common mistake.

            Drunk Master (aka Meat Monster)

              Excuse me, but is anyone else totally offended that MeatMonster has all of a sudden declared himself “Drunk Master?” 😉 I’m totally appalled that someone can just come in here all of sudden, out of the blue, and bestow that title upon himself! I can think of at least 10-15 worthy candidates, including myself, right off the bat. Drunk Master is a title that many of us here would be worthy candidates for. We need to be careful before we just go throwing that title around.

              LMAO, I am so sorry Panhead John to have overstepped. You'll have to excuse me, I wrote this while sober. That'll teach me. I'll resume drinking immediately, which in itself is surely proof that I do my best work drunk and am ergo worthy of the title drunk master!

              😂😂😂. You sound like me, “Do my best work drunk” One of the requirements to be considered for Drunk Master is.....Waking up the next morning and deleting or editing posts from the night before! I might have you beat there, not sure.

            Hello from NW Oregon
            Happy Grilling to you.


              Greetings and welcome from North Carolina


                Welcome from north Texas. You’ve already got a feel for the Pit with some of the comments. And Panhead John ain’t even responded yet. You’ll have fun.


                  Welcome from Winnipeg. Keep the smoke rolling.


                    Howdy from Houston! Welcome to The Pit. You can have a lot of fun here and learn a lot. There’s many people here with pellet poopers who can probably answer almost any question you might have about cooking on em. There’s also a lot of funny people here who can sometimes be a little sarcastic. Avoid them at all costs. 😉

                    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.

                    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.

                    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.
