    New Member Introduction

    Hello, I'm Jim. I'm a first time smoker owner. I finally bought a pellet smoker, Camp Chef SG24, one week ago. I've done a beer butt chicken and a boneless pork butt. Both came out great! (I've since learned that bone in is the way to go with pork butt)
    I can't wait to expand my smoking horizons and smoke some tasty meats! I love ribs and I've had a lot of success with other methods of cooking them. The one thing I've never made is a brisket. My goal is to smoke a brisket like they're meant to be. I'm confident that with a little help here, I'll reach that goal!

    Welcome to the Pit from Alabama. Brisket is no harder than a Boston butt (pulled pork). I suggest reading the article on the free side about smoking Texas style brisket first. If you wrap at all, wait until the meat is up around 170F in the thickest part of the flat before doing so:

    Also, while I used to do beer-can chicken myself, its not really the way to go. Spatchcock your chickens instead, or split them. Read this article:

    https://amazingribs.com/bbq-techniqu...r-can-chicken/

    Basically, I myself used to think that the beer can chicken was the best and most moist chicken I had ever made. Maybe it was, but it wasn't due to the beer, which the science proves will never boil and steam enough to do anything when shoved up the rear of a chicken...

    Anyway, glad to have you here, and look forward to seeing what you are making.

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                            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.

                            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
