    I'd be happy to have either or both over for dinner. They'd have to be really hungry, though ... that would ensure that whatever I served would be considered delicious ...

      That's why they invented 8:30pm dinner times! I've found that's when I get the most compliments!

    In life...in particular when dealing with this smoking thing - one cannot/should not be intimidated by the awesomeness of the experts. Enjoy that BBQ God aura they bring and maybe that will elevate your own game. We have a good friend that makes REALLY good Q and my wife's last comment was "I would not be embarrassed to have tem over for your pulled pork!" That being said...bring on Meathead and Blonder!

      Sure, why not.
      I'd probably make St Louis style Ribs and a Brisket, I do pretty good on the ribs, so-so on the Brisket.
      Be nice to get suggestions on improving either.

      I hope they like Liennie Honyweiss or Alaskan Amber though.
      There is a liquor store just a couple blocks away, just in case.

        Sure! There's always a keg on tap and what the previous owner called a coat closet, I call my liquor cabinet. We have a stunning view and two Weber 22's. I dont know if I'd serve them from the grill or from the SV. Probably a combo of both. Or take them to an awesome German restaurant or Tiki bar.

              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!

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
              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.

              thermapen
              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

              Grilla pellet smoker
              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.

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              PK 360 grill
              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

              kareubequ bbq 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.

              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'.

              NK-22-Ck Grill
              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.
