    Hello from the piney woods of SE Texas

    Been following amazing ribs for a few years now. Decided to treat myself and check out the goodies here in the Pitmaster Club.

    Hey there gshayd! Welcome!

          Welcome, I hope you find plenty of good stuff.
          I had to look that up, most of my experience is south and west Texas, didn't know you had enough trees to call anything Piney Woods. I think mesquite bushes were about the tallest things I saw.

            CHOKED up with pine trees,

          SE Texas is plumb full of piney woods


            I fell in love with the hill country when I lived in Austin, and then the Red River Valley when I lived in Denison. Give me hard woods for BBQ.

              A friend of a friend got a call to go to an Oilers training camp, tells you how long ago that was, so my friend and I piled into a mazda RX-7 with a 350 pound tackle and drove him to his house in Houston from northwest Arkansas. We got there late, but I don't remember seeing any trees, just overpasses and buildings.
              We did harass him about his size a bit, which probably led to this next part. He decided to repay us by taking us to a restaurant to try chicken and waffles which neither of us had heard of (this was probably 5AM). There were quite a few people there, many about to go to an early shift at work, some still out from the night before, and most of them recognized him, asked about us and laughed. We ordered and went to pay and they said its on the house, it seems we were the only white people anyone could recall coming in there.
              Long story short we got out of town before it was too bright and I never remember seeing a tree.

              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!

              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 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.

              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              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!

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
