    Smoking on a Weber Compact vs Classic/Premium/MT

    So I recently moved from Germany across the Atlantic, to Brazil. I had to give my grills, smoker, Ooni and other BBQ equipment to my brother and parents as there was no way to take it with me. Now after half a year of only having Brazilian BBQ (Churrasco) I am growing a little bit tired of only...

    BBQ Books - suggestions?

    Like you, I have a nice selection of bbq and smoking books - Jeff Phillips, Meathead, Myron Mixon, Aaron Franklin, Steven Raichlen - just to name a few.

    Heavy Duty Wire Racks (for chicken wings)?

    Hey there, I'm looking for some heavy duty wire racks similar to the ones used for baking, but I want heavy duty ones that aren't going to be bothered by the weight of a roast or something. I'll primarily use them for wings, I think, but I figure I want to make sure it they can stand up to...

    Exhaust Placement on UDS and Smoker - Grill Functionality on UDS

    Hey Guys I am new here, but am planning a UDS build and have raked the internet with no real answer to this question. Where is the best placement for a UDS exhaust?

    Masterbilt Cast Iron Skillet

    So I’ve run into the same problem as a lot of people with my Masterbilt John Maclemore Signature Series where it gets too hot due to the stupid design of the chip pan.

    Smoked Cured pork loin is it right?

    Community, I am a newbie to curing meat and I'm not sure if it was done correctly. I used a cure recipe from the Hungarian smoked pork loin and I did use Instacure/Cure#1. That doesn't contain nitrates. Im had it in the cure solution for 10 days, then I had it hanging in cold smoker for 3...
