    Bump.

    In case anyone has ever felt (or still feels) a little overwhelmed by our forum and the many channels. I hope the [edited] top post will help you. If you're a long-time member or familiar with forums then you likely already know the basics mentioned here.

    As mentioned in another post, soon we'll be restructuring our main Channels page to be more succinct and less sprawling.

    I couldn't have said it better myself. Wait, yes I can. As a total newbie to smoking meats and fish, this website changed my life. I bought 8 of the AR steak knives with the logo on them. When my guests ask about the logo, usually after they mention what a great steak knife it is, I tell them, this website changed my life. You are absolutely right about the wonderful people here. Well said.

    Lol, yep. Check out the Pit User Guide channel, there's several topics in there that will help you learn how and where to post.

    Huskee, I'll apologize in advance! (for posting in the wrong spot(s)
    Being new here I'm still learning the way things are put together around here. If I put a post in the wrong thread,... I mean "Channel", feel free to whip me into shape. (oh Please,..WHIP ME!)

    I have a question but I gatta look around to see 'where to post it'! "POST"... is that a term that's used here?

    I agree. These folks are great. They help me out all the time but they have got me addicted to pastrami! Beware.

    Huskee, you honestly made me spit my coffee all over my shirt with laughter. As I read the first sentence of your second paragraph the Captain's voice from the movie Airplane (talking to Joey) immediately popped into my head.

    Jimmie Rhoden Thanks for the nice words. As Dave says, we're always here to help!

    Have you ever gone to college, or spent any time in a large hospital visiting family? The first visit to the building it's daunting, intimidating, huge! But after some repeated exposure, you learn where things are and it becomes not quite so intimidating. My advice to learn your way around is visit the main Channelss tab (upper-left). Scroll down and see where things are. We try to have a channel or sub-channel for nearly everything we could talk about here. If you post a topic where it doesn't fit best, that's ok, we'll move it if it's necessary to do so. Recent Posts is the best way to keep on top of recent conversations. But that's limited to what's "recent", whereas browsing individual channels will open up much more!

So far you guys have pointed me in the right direction with my 26 inch Weber kettle, other clubs that I tried to join online laughed at me and says I'm wasting my money told me how stupid I was the on this piece of equipment, this is the only club that embraced me and said hey we have new ideas and the way you barbecue and there's more than one way of doing it. And for that I thank you for making me feel welcome.
    Jimmie it can seem daunting but what you're going to find here is that the base knowledge that drives our techniques here is very consistent. Once you get over the initial learning curve things get real easy real quick. In the meantime, if you have trouble finding something, a "cry for help" will always get you pointed in the right direction around here.

If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

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 Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Placeholder

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 Undisputed Champion!

Placeholder

The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

Placeholder

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.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

Placeholder

GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

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

Placeholder

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.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

Placeholder

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'.

Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

Placeholder

A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

Track Up To Six Temperatures At Once

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

Placeholder

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.

Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

Placeholder

Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
