    South San Francisco hello!

    Hi Everyone, I've been a long time lurker here and finally took the plunge.

    I starting cooking by helping mom in the kitchen, wow going back to the 70's ? lol...

    I've done steaks on coals and ribs in the oven. But, I've been dying to get my smoking and really BBQ going.

    I bought a PBC last night and hope to add pictures when it gets here in a month or so.

    thanks everyone!

    Did you order off of Amazon? They make them say its a month out but its not...unless they got really busy. Whats the first cook? I think most do chicken first, I did ribs.


      Hello SFB, Welcome to the pit.


        I bought it off Amazon and used the URL on the rib site. I'd love to jump in straight to a brisket, but try a chicken first to get in the groove?


          Welcome sfbay (again)!

          Now let's get to work on that signature! Of course, you'll just have to add that PBC to your sig when it finally gets here, (and maybe a Maverick?).. Enjoy The Pit!


            Welcome my bay area friend and neighbor from Waite for it!!! sunny Stockton one more thing NINERRRRRRRRRS


              I finally received my PBC from Amazon! I ordered it September 10th and it's the 23rd, so 13 days isn't as bad as I was initially told! I was worried it was going to be 4 to 6 weeks.

              I went out to Costco and got some big hunks of meat, gonna try to do a brisket tomorrow.

              Wish me luck!

                If you follow MH's Texas brisket recipe and Jerod's PBC+ brisket tips, you'll nail it!

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

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                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.
