    Hello from Orygun

    Well, it's been a year since I signed up for an account here so I suppose it's time to introduce myself....

    I live in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, Hood River to be specific. I don't know where the urge to Q came from, it's not like Oregon is a hotbed of BBQ. If I remember correctly Campbell's or Tennessee Red's in PDX might be the first place I had BBQ in Orygun. I don't remember those leaving that much of an impression. Maybe it's travels to Texas and Georgia where I came to love food from Rudy's and Heirloom Market that stoked the fire.

    I'm currently cooking on a Mak 2 star and thanks to the enthusiasm shown here, ordered a PBC for a charcoal based cooker. Love the Mak even though I'm using it at it's most basic level and I'm really excited about the PBC.

    As far as favorites, I'd have to go with pork butt, ribs and brisket in that order. Chicken thighs are a common thing when on sale. I guess goals would be to do breakfast on the Mak and a grill fired pizza. Secret passions are cooking with the weird cuts such as tongue, gizzard, tripe and such

    Thanks for the website, information and energy to maintain it.

    Cook well brothers and sisters!

    Thanks for the long support!!!

    You will know that I hit the jack pot if a Mak 2 ends up on my deck. ​

                        Welcome to the Pit Burntend ...

                        I used to live in Lake Oswego, Oregon when I was in the furniture industry. I came to Hoodriver every 4 to 6 weeks to sell sofas to Murray Furniture Co. It's a family own retail business that was started on farmland. There were three generations living there working the farm and selling furniture.

                        I always made sure to get there at lunchtime because they had a family tradition of having a full blown big time lunch everyday. They shut down everything to gather for lunch. I became friends of the family and looked forward to joining them for this spectacular lunch. What made it spectacular was who was in the chairs... The food didn't really matter. They were good people.👍

                        They were a very small account but one that I enjoyed calling on more than others... They were downhome people.😎

                          Thanks for the kindly welcome folks!

                          Huskee, I'll get to looking at the homework page and dealt with the email thing a bit ago with Pit Boss.

                          Breadhead, I've bought a few items from Murray's. Just down the road from me. I'll have to ask if they are still doing the lunch.

                          Cheers and good cooks to all!

                          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.

                          Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                          Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                          Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                          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.

                          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
