    Hello

    Hello, I have been asked to introduce my self. I am a 46 year old married man from just outside Vancouver Canada. We live on a 5 acre farm that we bought 3 years ago and run as a hobby. We grow all of our own food including beef chicken and veggies. You simply can not beat knowing what goes into the meat that you eat! My wife would like to add Berkshire pigs to the mix next year. We will see. I do not want to go to fast. I have been grilling for my whole life but a trip to Lockhart Texas 2 years ago changed my outlook on cooking. I am sorry Meathead but I use to boil ribs. All that has changed. A year ago I bought a Browning Kamoto smoker and started playing. A month ago I upgraded to a Primo XL Oval(better low temp control). My Brisket I am happy with and my ribs are getting close. We look forward to helpful tips and comments from the Pitmasters club

        Just outside of Vancouver in a town called Langley. We have a 5 acre farm and grow our own Chickens and Beef. We are thinking of adding Berkshire pigs next year. There is nothing better than knowing your meat and what went in it!

        Welcome to fun in the Pit! I've eaten in Lockhart at all three of the top BBQ places - Smitty's, Black's and Kruetz, and they are at the top of my list. I rate the sausage at Black's number 1 and the beef clod at Smitty's number 1. My regret is that few BBQ joints do beef clod. The only places seem to be in central Texas.

                  Well we do things to n metric up here, so it may seem colder than it is😀. It is -1c right now and I am doing up some short ribs for dinner. The ceramic BBQ sure helps! That being said we don't really get winter like the rest of Canada😀

                  Cool to see another BBQ junky from Wester Canada! How do you deal with the need to cook in sub zero temps? I am loving my ceramic cooker. It seems to be the only BBQ let will allow my love of out door cooking to continue into the cold months😀

                  I get by with my kettle, charcoal consumption increases dramatically when it's -20, but it can still be done. I don't Q as often during winter, so when I do I do big batches and freeze the leftovers.
