    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

    Welcome!! My wife was a Mayo. And I much prefer Mayo over Miracle Whip.

    Thanks for the support it is greatly appreciated.

    We have a seminar video on those types of smokers.

        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!

      Mr Mayo I'm going to merge your two intro posts, ok? Then we can keep the greetings all in one spot. Glad to have you here!

      m.mayo Something happened during the merge...can you please edit the top post and include what you originally said? Darn internet gremlins...

        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.

              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.

              Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


              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’.

              GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


              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. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

              Amazingribs.com temperature magnet

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.
