    New smoker in California

    Hi guys, I'm new to smoking and have found that it's not nearly as prevalent in CA as it is back where I grew up, Texas. I was given a Vision Grill Classic B for my birthday from my parents, and since then I've tried beef ribs, pork ribs, brisket, and chicken. I've found controlling this thing is a total nightmare and found this site in my research on how to control the grill better, and then became addicted to the information that's available.

    Since then I've ordered the BBQ Guru CyberQ Wifi to help me get a handle on the grill. I figure using it with lots of heat tolerant caulk I'll start being able to smoke at the temps I'd like. Plus I looked at returning the grill to Sam's Club, and paying the extra for a Big Green Egg, Primo etc and decided (for now) keeping my gift grill and adding the controller is the cheaper option and maybe the best overall.

    On a side note, I'm a very logic based person who got his degree in how to test people scientifically though controlling for each variable to determine how much each variable affects the outcome. This includes building 80 variable neural networks to simple A/B tests. I'm a pretty accomplished cook in the kitchen, everything from gas grilling to Creme Brulee to Sous Vide. Though Sous Vide is still a new experiment and I'm so looking forward to combining it with smoking.

    I look forward to learning more from everyone.

    Welcome Christobol! I like logic too. I like delving into the root of things, whether it's grilling or anything else in life and seeing how it affects me, what's the best, and what's merely under-informed or misinformed tradition.

    When you get a minute, check out Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, as well as the tips posts in that channel. These will help you learn your way around The Pit, as well as how to set up your signature properly and the best way to post photos. We love pics around here! Enjoy The Pit, and thanks for the support.

      Perhaps Christobol should apply some of his logic testing to Huskee. I'd be interested in those results=)

      Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

      A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs


      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      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. Click here for more about what makes this grill special.


      GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredáZone


      GrillGrates amplify heat, prevent flare-ups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. Click here for more about what makes these grates so special.
