    Three li'l smokers went to the market...

    Hi y'all,

    finished yet another three smokers. Fired them up today for the burn-in. I rub them down with oil, then let them burn for an hour or two to get that hardened surface. Here are three smokers, two normal and one reverse. What do you all think? I'm proud to put my name on them, rock solid smokers.

    The lineup

    Two of them are sold, going up north in Sweden. Might just keep the third one, haven't decided yet. Gonna smoke some Iberico ribs on it anyway.


    I think it's fair to say that I can call myself a pit master these days. I've come a long way on the bbq journey, and my passion for good food has not diminished. And thanks to the Pit I've learned a ton, and gotten to know a bunch of great people. Yes, that is you guys and gals. Have an awesome weekend!

    Way too cool Henrik ! Those look great. Are you finding it profitable or more of a break even materials/time hobby than potential business, if you dont mind me asking?

      Thanks! Yes, it is a business, and it is profitable. Just gotta improve the margins a bit. Focusing on building the brand.

    Awesome builds Henrik! If I lived over there, I'd be saving my cash up to get one of your smokers for sure!

    Beautiful pits Hank. I am betting lots of folks are hoping to get one of these beautiful pits.

    Have you seen a big price jump in steel in Europe as well? Evidently it has gone up big time in last few weeks here in the US.

      Alphonse I can attest to the increase here on the west coast. We just got hit with a price escalator on rebar and apparently it's going to become very scarce middle of next month.

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.
