    Hi I'm the Gadjet Griller

    I had to move back home to West Texas to take care of my ailing mom, after living the last 20 years in Dallas. Talk about a culture shock! lol Mom had so many appointments each week that I was unable to look for even a part time job. So to help pass the time I started a youtube channel on Gardening. I named it Gadjet Gardener (yes with a j YouTube didn't want me to use a fake or nick name they were trying to compete with Facebook so only wanted real names their computers thought that Gadjet was a real name, well for a few months.) Only problem was nobody was watching my gardening videos?? but I named the channel Gadjet cause I like gadgets so thought I would fill the time with Gadgets videos. Well my first Gadget Video was on my Green Mountain Grill. That sucker got views so i did more and they got views as well. So when a stray Coal fell onto my spare bags of charcoal and started a fire that ruined one of my gardening enclosures i took the hint and renamed the channel Gadjet Griller.

    I'm always looking for stuff to do on the channel and decided to turn a brisket into 3 different end products. Beef Jerky, Corned beef and Pastrami. Was looking for a good Pastrami brine and came across Meatheads. which lead me to this site and it sounded cool (I've been mostly winging it IE not knowing what I was doing) so its cool to be among folks that know their stuff and can maybe make my channel a better place!! I have only done the Jerky part (which turned out wonderful and was gone by the 2nd day) I haven't yet made the Brine to put both the corned beef and Pastrami in. Mostly I dont have room in the fridge for 2 big hunks of meat to sit for 10 days. But I will soon, I hope lol

    I have 3 smokers the pellet smoker, a faux kamado kooker and a offset stick burner. Haven't used the stick burner much I'm lazy thats why I like gadgets they make life easier! the pellet smoker is basically set it and forget it (as far as temp is concerned) I got a IQ110 for the Kamado Kooker and it is very temp stable for 9 to 11 hours. The stick burner? I still haven't got the hang of it lol (stupid Aaron Franklin) I downloaded his book on Barbecue and he convinced me burning real wood and only wood was the best way to smoke meats. So i have a lot of trial and error ahead of me but I've come to figure out that even bad Barbecue is still usually very tasty! !

    Welcome to The Pit GadjetGriller! Awesome intro! Very nice to meet you, and I wish the best for your channel. Stickburners are fun but they do require a learning curve. We have some decent writeups in our Grills and Smokers > Logs channel about some fire management methods if you ever want to browse there. Otherwise it sounds like your gadgets are keeping you plenty happy on the BBQ front. Hint: A BBQ Dragon helps a stickburner, lots!

    Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

    Also, it's very important that you add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list in case you are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner!

    Hope to hear & see more from you!

        GadjetGriller Great! I just moved to Dallas, I will be learning how to do Beef. I mostly cook on a BGE, and occasionally a Jumbo Joe. You can tutor me on beef and I can help on Boston Butt.
