      Thank you very much Brewmaster! It's an honor to wear the same hat you did. Ha! My Ridgeback has just taken two trips with my wife to Sebastopol to meet her baby's dad this week. Had I known it was her time I would have gone with my wife to get the hat from you.

      fuzzydaddyVirginia Dave Dave, I only live in Harrisonburg (2 hrs away roughly). I could meet you somewhere so you don't even have to put your hat in the mail. Let me know if that could work for you... If not that's okay too.

      • 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).

      tbob4 , a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Looks like you had a great one!

      Happy early birthday richinlbrg! I'm working tomorrow and get to go to a local minor league ball game thereafter. I didn't know if I would have time to log on to the computer so I wanted to get in the pre-emptive birthday strike. Hope you have a great one and the hat brings you luck!

              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!

              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.
