    When I first joined, I was seriously concerned that this was just a good ole boys club and I would not be very welcome. I could not have been more wrong. The amount of info and the chance to learn Q for a tiny membership fee convinced me.

    Best club I ever joined. Thanks to all of you on here, my dear hubby is eating better than ever and lovin' every practice session!

    We lived in Stone mountain, at Rockbridge. 5152 FairForest Dr. I remember it now, after 15 years because I taught my kids their address and phone numbers to song. so I still hear the tunes. they knew their phone number to Row row row your boat. "My phone number is...2..9..7, 2..9..7.. 0426..0426. then the address was the address to jingle Bells...51..52 FairForest dr, Stone mtn, ga...30088. I can't believe I still remember those. I remember taking my oldest to school at St Thomas More in Decatur. took 45 minutes to drive in via Ponce, and 10 minutes to come home.

    If you find yourself in the area, take a look. the Kiwis should still be on the fence. they'll be ready to pick around Halloween.

    Nice trip down memory Lane.

    ... exiled to Atlanta. At least you've escaped - we're still here.

    I finally accepted that it will take me 1.5 hours to make a 35 mile commute from work to home. This is back roads where I can hit 50 mph vs. 5 on the $%#!&$ interstates.

    HOA won't permit building helicopter landing-LOL!

    When I was exiled to Atlanta, we had a house in Stone Mountain. I chose it because it had a screened back deck and a hard piped gas grill. I was still new to all this stuff. We moved in on Sunday and I delivered my daughter the following Tuesday. But, with that grill and limited budgets, we ate a lot of chicken. I eventually started experimenting with smoke. usually I would smoke turkey breast. it wasn't bad, all things considered. I had started grilling hanging out with friends in college.

    My dad used to always brag about smoking. he made a MEAN turkey plywood. But, with time, even that drafty old gas grill could turn out edibles. when we came back, I wasn't home much. three jobs to keep the tuition payments for the kidlets. But, kidlets growing up gave me more time to indulge. that was when I started becoming serious.

    HWMO is not a fan of restaurants and, at this point, I can't afford any restaurant I would go out of my way to patronize. and that's Ok.

    I can't remember how I found this site and I have forgotten how many times I have passed it along. I'm even a very good girl when we visit the neighbors across the street who brag about their smoked pork. He knows I am a judge. yeah, I fudged. but, it's not bad. Good friends make BBQ more tender.

    I can't begin to say how many of the pages I have explored and I know I can do my share of yammering. but I very much love this site. the marvelous info as well as the wonderful comradeships.

    Before I stumbled across AR, I had not smoked a thing in my life. I just did steaks, burgers and chicken over direct heat on my trusty 22" Weber. When I finally arrived on AR, I spotted the Smokenator and I started smoking.

    I started a recipe book and have almost 70 AR recipes / techniques. I have other stuff I have gleaned from links from Pitmaster members and sites on the web.

    The rest, as they say, is history.

    True that.

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
