    Looking forward to learning a lot from this group. I consider myself a pretty decent cooker. I just want to take my experience up a notch. I currently have a Traeger Pro 64, WSM 22, Weber Kettle Master Touch and MasterBuilt (Electric). I recently purchased the ThermoWorks Signals and Billows air controller. Really looking forward to trying that alarm system. I use the ThermaPen MK4 to confirm internal meat temperatures. I’m really hoping to improve my skills in all aspects BBQ’ing (especially mastering the art of cooking a brisket). The first brisket I tried was a disaster. I need to redeem myself.

    Welcome to The Pit Rattlesnake. We’re glad to have ya. Don’t feel bad about your first brisket. Pretty much everyone here has had a disaster or near disaster at least. We got a lot of people here who can help if ya ever need it. But it sounds like your doing pretty good on your own.


      Welcome from St. Cloud, FL. Brisket isn't difficult, search out brisket in the recipes and there will be many but remember that the quality of the meat is as important as the cooking process. I search out briskets that I can bend and have the ends touch pretty easily. Good luck and share pics when you reach brisket nirvana as one then understands the appeal of a great smoked brisket.

                I think you’re still probationary Panhead John. That’s what I heard.

                            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                            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.

                            Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                            3 burner gas grill

                            The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
