    Fresh Meat

    New to the pit but have burned my share of a herd. Do a really good S. Carolina pulled pork but can't give my wife a rare to med-rare burger. She loves burgers. Will invest in new thermo as advised.
    Dougie Fresh

    Welcome to the pit. Love Carolina pulled pork. Yes, that is Meathead's mantra, "invest in a good digital thermometer".


      Welcome Dougie Fresh!


        Welcome, I have converted everybody I know to a smoked burger. I do a sweet wood and smoke low until 10 shy of my temp and then sear like a steak. You would swear there is some apple smoked bacon in every bite. Speaking of which I need to start on my own grind...

        Got any rubs/mops/techs to share?


          Welcome Aboard Dougie


            @Dougie Fresh!,Welcome to the Pit, I think you will find if you have a consistent fire (# Coals or Temperature) and a good way to time the cook on each side, usually a little shorter on the 2 nd. Then the other variable is the ambient temperature. Start noting the length of time at various temps and I think your wife will be bringing guests for Your Burgers! Good Luck, Dan
