    Hello from Schertz, Texas

    I have lived in the San Antonio area all my life. I have raise 3 kids on some pretty bad barbeque, About 3 months ago I discovered the Pit Barrel Cooker and I have a new hobby! I stumbled on the AmazingRibs.com after searching for other PBC enthusiast.What I found was the new world of barbeque and cooking. I have read and re-read Meatheads articles many times.

    Anyway I joined the Pitmaster Club a couple of weeks ago and it is so much fun reading the advise from the experienced ones. I am glad I did.

    Now that my kids are all grown I have been looking for an activity to bring the husbands and daughters together for more than the holidays. We have started a barbeque team called "Texas Q Step". Now every 3 months or so we find a barbeque cook off to hang out for a weekend, drink Shiner beer and fire up the PBC. I have already used Meatheads rubs and sauces - my kids now think I'm a genius!

    Thanks !

                Welcome to The Pit and welcome to The Addiction!


                  That's awesome jecucolo ! What a fun way to bond with family. Drinking cold beer and cooking on the PBC is hard to beat, but sharing it with loved ones is even better! Welcome to The Pit.


                    Welcome jecucolo , is Shriner Beer pretty much local? Would be nice to be in Texas and visit the BBQ places Aaron Franklin features on his show. The one in Lexington looked especially good!


                      Shiner beer can be bought pretty much anywhere in Texas.
                      It is brewed in a small town named Shiner. It is about 90 miles east of San Antonio.

                        Thanks! I know some folks who travel to San Antonio to train at the medical center. I am going to recommend it and see if they can pick me up some.

                      We toured the Lone Star Brewery in 1990. I take that back, it was shut down due to a drought. Buck Horn Hall of Horns was neat, and the Root Beer was gooooood.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                      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.

                      Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                      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’.
