    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.

                    GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another.

                    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’.

                    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 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.
