    Hello everyone

    Hi all! Just joined today but have been reading the site for several years. I've learned a lot from several places but this is my goto for all things grilling/smoking. I started with a cheap offset many years ago and as it started to fall apart I moved up to a 22" Weber kettle that I'd always looked at. Couple that with a Slow-n-Sear and that makes up my gear currently. I do miss the capacity of the offset but I don't find myself cooking for a large crowd too much so its ok.

    I've become very familiar with doing spare ribs or baby back ribs and those have been my favorite item to do. A couple of weeks ago I finally braved the notion of doing a brisket and found a relatively small one for the wife and I at Sam's. I was a bit concerned at how it would turn out but it only took around 6 hours or so (with foiling to get through the stall). It turned out great! Last weekend I did another one and was going to skip the foil, but ended up adding some to speed things up in the last hour as I realized I should've started sooner.

    Today I picked up a whole packer brisket and will do the trimming myself. I'm going to give a go at the corned beef and then following that up with some pastrami! I've come to quickly realize I should've tried the brisket a long time ago as it is quickly moved up to the top of my favorites list!

    Hope to still learn a lot of new things here and looking forward to continuing improving my skills!

                      Welcome to The Pit.

                      Leftover brisket has many uses. It will take chili to another level, and is great in tacos too, and on and on...

                        The first one we did stuffed poblano peppers with some brisket and cheese. The second one we did soft tacos with the left over meat. Both were awesome!

                            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.
