    Connecticut checkin' in...

    Always loved BBQ, couldn't get the hang of it myself. Meathead's been steering me right--finally jumped in with a 26" Weber kettle, Slow 'n' Sear and a Maverick thermometer. (Gotta admit, I don't want to trash the old 18" Weber.) Still getting the new one calibrated and hoping to do up a Boston butt soon.

    Welcome to the Pit tlaw ...

    You now have the Ménage A Trois of BBQ equipment. Those three pieces of gear when used together are blessed by the BBQ god's.👍

    Follow Meathead and David Parrish carefully and you will become a real Pit Master soon.

    Send pictures of your cooks.😎


      tlaw, Welcome to the Pit from Fargo ND! In addition to Meathead and David Parrish I would and do pay careful attention to Breadhead and the other Members and Staff! 👍👍👍👍👍. The advice and suggestions you can get free for the asking would make a Culinary College Cry! Dan

                  Checkin' back in with a photo of my first attempt at a hunk o' flat brisket, injected with 6 oz. of beef broth. 26" Weber & SnS and hickory chunks, 12 hours (even with a Texas crutch at 250 deg.) Hit another stall at 187 deg. But, it came out moist and tasty, and look at that smoke ring! I've done a pork butt and spare ribs, but can't find the pix. Lots of problems controlling the temperature, but I'm getting the hang of it. The secret is a long cigar and good whiskey.
