    "You're killin'me Smalls"

    Okay, brand spankin' new member. I've been using Weber kettles, those I salvaged from the curb side, for a number of years until this spring when I went all out (for me anyway) and bought a new Weber Master Touch. I love this grill. Now I find my self having ditched my mechanical thermometer and ordered a thermo-pop and a maverick 732. I even bit the bullet and set aside my weber charcoal baskets and bricks and just ordered a slow and sear. The reviews from you guys are too good, making a guy pry open his wallet like that. Thank goodness for whiskey & coke. Have a great holiday weekend.

      • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

      WELCOME!!

      The addition of the thermo-pop, maverick and SnS will save cooks, and enhance your cooking/eating experience. At least that is my experience! But that is about all I've purchased!

      2racks of BB ribs have been on for about four hours i. My SnSd Weber.

      Hope you get the benefit of this site that I have, and as much fun!

        The whiskey & coke is a close second to my worship of the bovine pectoral muscle. There really can't be one without the other

            Welcome to the Pit @w0ng

            The Weber Kettle, the SnS and your Maverick 732 is a ménage a trois blessed by the BBQ god's. You might consider acquiring a set of grill grates.

            Then there's nothing you can't cook to masterful perfection.

            Enjoy your time here learning.😎

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

              slow n sear
              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

              the good one grill
              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

              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
              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!
