        Nice work Huskee!! Glad I made the letter for "What not to cook" LOL. I am honored that I could help raise awareness.
        We had some incredible SUWYC posts this month! Really great stuff. It is always a treat to see what everyone is cooking up. But I feel like this past month was like a highlight reel. Almost everything, except for my Lutefisk, looked great!

        Thanks for your hardwork on the Newsletter. It is always fun to read every month.

        Thanks for the nice words, Spinaker and others! I'm either slow, or a perfectionist, or a littla both. The newsletters take me a long time to put together even though it takes only 2 mins to scan through it. Scanning The Pit & finding pics & topics, saving pics, uploading pics, placing them in the template, sizing them, touching up, adding text boxes, saving Pit links and linking each text back to the appropriate post in The Pit...it's nothing quick to assemble let me tell ya. It makes me feel good to hear feedback like that!

        Huskee Ditto for me too πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†what they said. In every issue I always see a pink or find a link to something I didn't see before. Especially in the SUWYAC. There always seems to be great food I missed. I appreciate "your" hard work. Funny how we never think some one has to connect all those dots to make it work.

        Gracias!

I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

              maverick PT55 thermometer

              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!

              the good one grill

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

              the good one grill

              The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

              Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

              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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

              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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

              NK-22-Ck Grill

              Their 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.
