    Finally bit the bullet

    Hi ya'll. Been reading this site for over a year and finally decided to join The Pit. Been BBQ and grilling ever since I was tall enough for my Dad to let me light his Weber. Got my low and slow education from about 10 years in Texas. Recently kicked it into overdrive and have just started competing. I currently own a Weber, a BGE, two self built UDS's and as of Saturday will take into possession an Assassin 24. Love how much I still don't know even though I've been doing it most of my life. Glad that the BBQ world is full of good people that enjoy cooking, sharing info, and spreading the love of fire and meat.

    Welcome and thanks for the support!!

    I smoked a brisket on the weber kettle for 17 hours this past weekend...bark to die for.

              Welcome to fun in the Pit! My cooker is a large BGE. I, too was introduced to BBQ in Texas. We will be moving back in 2016. I guess I will be doing more beef and less pork.

                  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!
