    Greetings from up north (Alain Tremblay)

    I've been meaning to support the site for a while, so here it is! I'm from Quebec City, Canada where we like grilling and BBQ even more since the season is so short (although we do grill in the winter, it is a pain in the butt).

    I discovered "low-n-slow" BBQ during my many travels to the state, Being a scientist (chemist), the "cooking wisdoms" people repeat but are counter intuitive for a scientist always bothered me. Meathead and his team approach cooking with the only real method that works: test your hypothesis, measure and get the truth!

    Thanks for the site, keep up the good work and bon apétit!

    Greetings Alain! Thank you for the support. We are all fans of science, as you mention testing and repeating and measuring is the only real way to do it. You just can't make a bad meal when you do things properly, especially BBQ where bad or at the very least less productive information is so widespread!

    When you get a minute, head over to Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, and check it out as well as the tips posts in that channel. These will help you set up your signature as well as learn the best way to post some nice big bragging pictures for all of us to enjoy. Looking forward to hearing more from you!


      Great to have you Al, and thanks for the support?

      You speak Quebecois? I only remember the cuss words and a few other nouns, with respect to Cajun french.


        Good morning AT, Welcome!


          Thanks for the warm welcome! Of course I can speak (and write) Québécois! We do have a relatively high tolerance to profanity and swearing (we're soft rebels at heart)...

          Anyway, doing a whole brisket next week and I'll try it with Meathead's recipe for the first time and I'll try to take pictures for you guys. I'm serving this to our now-obligatory office fall BBQ (I did it once and now they won't let me stop).


            Cool.......keep us posted. My dad speaks french.


              Welcome mon ami !

              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 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.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              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.
