    Good Morning from Burleson Texas

    Hey there,
    ​I've been following Amazing Ribs off and on for over a year now and have received tons of good information from y'all. This is a great site and I'm glad to be a member.

    So yesterday my fiancée gives me a very cool vertical smoker as a Valentine's day gift. I spent the afternoon cleaning it up, putting on the thermometers, seasoning and dry running it. This morning I've got some pork butts in there smoking steady at 225. I already love this thing!

    Welcome to the Pit! It is a fun place to be. As my tag indicates I love Butts.

    Percival, Welcome to The Pit! You better Treasure Your Fiancé she sounds like a Keeper! Eat Well and Prosper!
    From Fargo ND, Dan


      Thanks. She's definitely a keeper. Took this photo yesterday, not sure why it uploads sideways.


        When I clicked on the photo, it rotated from landscape back to portrait. I spy pecan in the picture. Good stuff. Have fun!

          Welcome Percival


            Welcome to The Pit Percival . What a great Valentines Day present! Definitely a keeper. Good luck on the pending matrimony!


              Thanks all. By the way, I'm really impressed with this cabinet smoker. A little trial and error this morning but with a little flue space up the middle I can keep each rack at 225 on the dial thermometers. I'm researching other thermometer setups, trying to figure out the right way to go with that. As for today, the probe in the pork butt tells me that we have reached the stall. They are looking mighty good, can't wait to shred them up.


                Welcome Percival! We're glad you're here.


                  Indeed! Welcome aboard!

                        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 flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                        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.
