    From the Pacific Northwest

    Hey guys, I just purchased meatheads book so I’m redeeming the coupon for the club. I have a 26” Weber kettle as well as a pbc. I started bbqing about 10 years ago with a few hiatuses in between. Everything I’ve learned of outdoor cooking has mainly derived from amazingribs.com so I am grateful. I’m currently testing out different charcoal (I’m about to use b&b briquettes) from using lump. I’m also still trying to perfect the brisket. I’ve been using Jeremy Yoder’s brisket method (mad scientist bbq) in which you wait for the fat cap to complete render to gelatin before you wrap. I’ve yet to be successful. Can’t wait to meet everyone!

    Welcome from Colorado … nice couple of cookers you’ve got there …


      Welcome from Maryland


        Welcome from the California Delta.


          Welcome to The Pit.

          Are you leaving the entire fat cap? Most here trim all but about 1/4" before cooking. Most don't want to eat that much fat anyway, and if your rub is on top of the fat cap, people will lose it when they get rid of the excess fat.


            Welcome to the Pit from Dallas, Texas!


              Greetings and welcome from North Carolina.


                Welcome aboard! I'm from Western WA myself. Like you, I learned a lot from AmazingRibs, then joined the Pit when it was launched way back when. And what I've learned here has taken my BBQ game to a whole new level. Plus made some great friends!

                on the brisket front, I can't help with Jeremy Yoder's method, never read about it or tried it. However, my own method might be helpful to you. I borrow heavily from Aaron Franklin and Meathead, and then refined over the years to this method. I find that it consistently turns out really solid brisket.

                              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                              Surely you know somebody who loves outdoor cooking who deserves a gift for the holidays, birthday, anniversary, or just for being wonderful. There he is, right in the mirror! Here are our selections of best ideas, all Platinum or Gold Medalists, listed by price.

                              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.

                              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’.

                              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                              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.

                              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.
