    Greetings all from Lubbock Texas

    I'm Ricky and sadly I only recently signed up for the Pitmasters club. I have been browsing amazing ribs now for a while and LOVE everything I've seen. I must say though, the Pitmasters club opens a entirely new world of tips, tricks, advice, humor, sadness (just read a new members post and he tells about his BGE tipping over and cracking before even doing a brisket on it, a tear came to my eyes) and everything else related to good Q. I look forward to learning as mush as possible about the art of BBQ from everyone and will offer what I can to the conversation. Let the journey begin!!

    Lubbock Texas? Isn't that like the heart of all things BBQ? Got any good brisket recipes? Welcome aboard by the way!

      I wish ribeyeguy. We have several BBQ chain restaurants (if you like a pretty good pot roast I can recommend one or two ) and a new place that's pretty good. I'm up in the panhandle part (West Texas they call it). Was in the Austin area this weekend and THAT is a BBQ'ers haven.

              Welcome to the Pit risawyer ...

              There's lots to learn and digest on the public side but the Pit is where you can get lots of help on things you're not sure about. It's probably the best $25 investment you've ever made in your BBQ journey.👍

                Thanks Breadhead & I agree 100%. I'm looking at the PBC's and have read the entire thread dedicated to these smokers. Great insight from tons of actual users, can't beat that value. Plus I've watched Tuffy Stone and Candy Sue's (also considering a pellet) videos and those are outstanding!!! Next up, Chris Lilly and Dr Blonder!!

                Thanks David. They have live music in the summer time at the Buddy Holly center. Really fun to go to. As for sampling the local BBQ, we are somewhat lacking in that area. Mostly chain's so . . . well, you know.

              Welcome to the Pit risawyer. Great to see another Texas in the Club! I am the new member who Humpty Dumptied his BGE. Oh well, life goes on. I'm excited to learn how to master 'Q on my new Pit Barrel Cooker with the help of all my new friends here in the Pitmaster Club!

                Thanks Huskee!! Great to be a member!! Already recommending the club to my friends!

                I have been dabbling in Q for years but only recently started trying to get consistent predictable results. Using Meatheads cooking log a thermo pen have greatly improved my results. Being from west Texas, it's hard for me to admit (hurts my Q ego), but my butts and ribs are better than my brisket (they may kick me out of Texas for admitting that openly). Next cook will be with a butcher paper wrap instead of foil (that seems like a touchy topic but I just gotta see for myself.

                Anyway, I LOVE practicing and look forward to all the club offers!! I will definitely add the site to my safe list. DO NOT want to miss that email!!!

            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.

            GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone

            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’.

            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!

            Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.
