    Greetings from Sacramento, CA

    I've been reading the articles for a few months and decided it was time to join this awesome site. I have a Pit Barrel Cooker and a Weber Kettle. I started getting into barbecue beyond recreational grilling several years ago. I'm from Brooklyn and you can't get real New York pastrami in Sacramento, so I decided to learn how to make it myself. I also like to make pulled pork, ribs, and brisket. Recently, I've been making bacon and have also tried my hand at pancetta, salami, and other dry-cured meats (only in the winter when it's cold enough in my basement). I'm looking forward to learning from all of you and, if I ever become knowledgeable enough, helping other people make great barbecue.

                    Welcome and greetings. I am also from Sacramento. I look forward to seeing some of your cooks. M


                      Welcome aboard. I am that rare creature, a native of Sacramento. I was born at Sutter Memorial way back when, grew up in Rocklin (which we would never have considered to be associated with Sacramento when I was a kid). Left when I joined the Army, eventually ended up near Seattle.

                      Looking forward to hearing and seeing more about your cooks. And your meat curing. I've considered doing that myself. Seems like a lot of fun.

                      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.

                      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 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.

                      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.

                      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’.
