      What's the protocol for posting? Should I post in The Pit or on the public comments site?

      I can't tell you how many times this site has saved my butt. Many thanks for all the great information and videos. I live in the mountains of SoCal and have added smoking to my other hobbies of brewing beer and making moonshine. Needless to say, our parties have become very popular. But it is the outdoor cooking that has become the center of our gatherings. Thanks, AmazingRibs.

          stevenv55125 - I always run a high temp (600F) burn through my kamados on at least a monthly basis if not more often. Its very important to keep your Primo very clean. You don't want flashbacks.

        stevenv55125 I'd suggest running it at very high heat for an hour or two, then scraping the walls off with wadded up aluminum foil. Do not use chemicals... not even soap!

          based on this site I've purchased and fallen in love with the slow n sear and am now trying to perfect the moistest smoked chicken ever. Quick question- on the sweet georgia brown recipe it doesn't day how long to salt the chicken prior to applying the memphis rub. How long would you suggest? Much thanks!

          Hello Meathead. I had not cooked an egg in my entire life until my wife persuaded me to buy a Weber Performer charcoal grill after she became ill and was no longer able to cook. I must have caught some very virulent strain of grilling virus after I started playing with my charcoal grill and was able to cook my first ribeye a month ago. After stumbling on the Pitmaster site and reading many of your well written and informative articles and watching so many fine people exchanging their grilling experiences and knowledge I had no other choice but to join the club which I just did to continue to learn about charcoal grilling and have fun with so many wonderful people. Congratulations and thank you for creating such a marvellous club.

            Love this site and your book. I noticed in today's email under the recipe for Cornell chicken that your wife earned a Ph.D. in microbiology from Cornell. When was she there? My wife (Denise) and I earned Ph.D.s in microbiology at Cornell from 1973 to 1977 and did post-docs there from 1977 until 1980.

            Regards,
            Jerry Yordy

              From Lou: I do know them. I was Gene Delwiche’s last grad student, there from 1978-1983; then did a post-doc with Gary Dunny from 1983-1986. I am pretty sure that Denise also was Delwiche’s student before I got there. She would remember Greg Griffin and probably Jim Pestka who were also in the Delwiche lab. I do not recall who was Jerry's advisor, but do remember him.

            We both know Greg and Jim. Denise was in Delwiche's lab from 1973 to late 1977, defended her thesis in January 1978. My advisor originally was Terry Weaver who left Cornell in 1976. Harry Seeley became my advisor for my final year.

            Denise thinks you and your wife came to our apartment at one time. Would like to discuss off line.

              Placeholder

              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              Placeholder

              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.

              Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              Placeholder

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

              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.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              Placeholder

              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.

              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.

              Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
