    Hello from Boerne, TX

    Hi All, from Dave in Boerne (pronounced Bernie) TX which is just north of San Antonio. Mailing address is Boerne but I'm actually closer to Leon Springs which is the home of the original Rudy's BBQ and the original Romano's Macaroni Grill.

    Started cooking in the early 80's working in restaurants while I was in high school. I haven'y gotten paid to cook since but I've always had a grill and/or a smoker. Over the last 25 years we've lived in places where knowing how to BBQ was a necessity: Kingsland, GA (just above Jax, FL), Memphis, Charlotte and now Texas, so I've gotten exposed to a lot of different styles, techniques, sauces, etc. Texas is about brisket whereas everywhere else I've lived it's about the butt. I'm good with all of it.

    I don't currently have a smoker, I'm trying to make do with a 42" DCS NG grill and pellet tubes and baskets. My next smoker will be a ceramic egg of some sort.

    This is a great site. I really appreciate all the work that goes into it.

    Dave

      Welcome and thanks for the support Dave.

      Like Ricky said, my PBC gets lit up almost every weekend. Many, many briskets......

          Welcome Dave - I've been to Boerne, my former boss lives out that way. We ate at a nice place "downtown" one night that had awesome prime rib. Unfortunately I can't recall the name of the place, it was a couple of years back. I remember it being in an area with a lot of antique shops.

            Welcome Dave, thanks for the support. We look forward to helping any way we can with advice if requested on your next smoker setup. If you're considering a ceramic, may I suggest looking into the Primo line vs the Big Green Egg, the Primo's oval shape allows much better indirect cooking/smoking.

            When you get a minute, head over to Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, and check out 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. Have fun!

              Wow coincidentally I've lived in San Antonio and currently live in Charlotte. We were only a few minutes away from the Leon Springs Rudy's and went there quite often. All our out of town guests were treated there. What profession has you moving so much?

              Oh, and welcome to The Pit!

                  I was USAF myself, and now in IT. It's getting weird. Don't tell me you flew C-130s.

                  Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                  3 burner gas grill

                  The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                  Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


                  Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                  GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared†Zone


                  GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                  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’.

                  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!

                  Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                  Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.
