    Howdy Fellow grill buffs - Just joined up and picked up a pit barrel

    My name is Michael and I've been using a double barrel set of 55 gallon drums I put together with a kit and the help of a friend for the past 18 years - those pit barrels look awesome!!! and much simpler to use.

    Yehhhhh buddy!!! Welcome and thanks for the support!!

    I cooked 4 briskets today on the PBC in 9.5 hours. All I hear is, "Please tell us the next time you are firing it up!"


      Lol - I am stoked Jerod - I am practicing for Thanksgiving starting next weekend - and the practices will be many : ) - after using Big Baby so long - as temperamental as she is - I can't wait to use a smoker that is more predictable!


        Btw - I'm calling her - Li'l Baby!

          I think I just call mine "Dude." Like, "Dude! Why so much smoke?"

          Course 4 briskets dripping grease can cause some flare ups.

        Welcome Gidiefor, glad to hear you're expanding your arsenal too. We're happy you've joined us and we look forward to seeing some bragging pics of your ol' big beast and the new Li'l Baby!

          Welcome to the Pit, I too am a recent convert to the PBC world. I have a lot of learning still but have had some great BBQ from mine already. Check out the strictly PBC threads and posts.
