KCquers ROADMAP to the QTALK Forum
Use this thread to map to threads or posts you feel can be important to members. Like a roadmap into our forums. Give the post a brief description of the important topic within. I.e.. Fire control, Technique, Recipe, etc....

Find the thread or post, copy the URL from the address line in your browser and paste it into a post in this thread.

Although these posts have links to some of the better threads in our forum, it by no means is all inclusive. Use our advanced search feature and search for keywords in 'titles only' to find loads of info on all topics.

For clarity, I will regularly combine posts and links added to this roadmap into the original post. If you see something out of place. please let me know. Thanks.

Edit as of 9/5/06. This roadmap was basically the brainchild of our beloved KCquer. May he rest in peace. It has now been named after him as is rightfully so. (parrothead)

Fire Control: Excellent basic fire info especially for those who have never fired up an offset smoker or have and struggled.
Thanks to Bill,Phil and Mr. Kick for sending me to it.

Lump Charcoal Database. Comparison of fuels.

When doing some Google searches, I came across this Web site. Looks like a bunch of good info on lump charcoal. Maybe it will be of use to someone...

Deep Fried Turkey
If you smoke often you should have a turkey fryer for lighting chimney's of lump or briq. In this thread it is suggested they are good for cooking turkeys too.

Finding a Bandera
Finding a Bandera:

These are from several places on the forum--Using the Search function, keyword on "quest" for the saga of finding and buying these smokers.
There are many threads with ideas.


Try local Home depots, ask a manager to do a locate using the SKU's.
Sometimes, you need the SKU to get the store to find one and have it transfered in.

SKUs' for Bandera and Brinkman.

Bandera SKU for Home Depot is 133-742
Lowes SKU for Brinkman Smoke King Deluxe is 78507

Much easier to find a Brinkman smoke King Deluxe, usually available at Academy sports, Lowes, and Bass Pro shops.
