    Well, bad news/good news. Our IT guys think this is feasible but not quite as easy to implement as we are thinking it will be. There's also an issue with the pins, once they get to a high enough number, causing the map to slow down to a crawl. We're running down some higher priority items so this will happen, it's just not at the top of the list. So I guess it's bad/bad/good news really. I'll provide more updates when I have them.

    John stay tuned. I'm raising this up to our developers to see if there's already a vB mod out there we can add to the forum.

    All the data is in there, you just need someone that can have access to it, it all resides in a database somewhere.

    I had to log in in order to add a pin. Still very confusing in order for me to add my location and title it Huskee instead of the town (Farwell). It labels it as "B", and you're "A". If we get hundreds or thousands of members doing this, how would that work?

    I'm in Texas, how big could that be?

    I'm liking where this is heading, but think we need to have it officially controlled by the AR team if that's possible so that only club members can view and make edits to the map. Is that workable?

    I like this idea! I like even more the idea of individual users inputting their own data as a means of support for a default opt in/opt out cpability. In addition the approach that John is using above allows for each "The Pit" member to control the granularity of the map to where exactly they put their pin. What I am trying to say is that I can either choose to put the pin precisely where I live, or I can put the pin in the middle of the town that is my mailing address without actually giving an exact location or address where I live. Obviously I would choose to input precise locations of really good Q locations so everyone could find them.

    There is nowhere to type an address, that I can see.

    Yeah you can use custom markers. If others can't edit the one I posted I can compile from a list somewhere, or find a free host to host it and let others add.

    You can't just type your address in the box and click add a marker?

    Technically anyone could edit that one, but they have to use the link (because I made it that way) so that should cut down most unwanted editing.

If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the 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.

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.

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

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. 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.
