    Hi Everyone

    Hey Everyone, really excited to join the community. I live in the bay area and have been grilling for ~5 years on a weber genesis, got an electric smoker (Smokin it #2) 3 years ago which really opened my eyes to smoking & longer cooks. Last summer I got a 22" weber kettle, and now that is what I use 90% of the time. I make a lot of ribs, wings, whole chickens and pulled pork. I have tried brisket a few times in the electric smoker, but it has always ended up dry and a bit tough, I would LOVE to master briskets. I just got the SnS a couple weeks ago, and cant wait to try a brisket on the kettle with it.

    Look forward to chatting with you all and peppering you with questions!

    Greetings and welcome to the Pit!

                        Welcome to the pit Matachi, nothing beats a great brisket. Enjoy the Wikipedia of BBQ.


                          Welcome to The Pit Matachi! It'[s nice to have you here, thanks for joining up with us. You will love the kettle & SnS as a brisket cooker. Just make sure to start with a good brisket. Choice at least. And regardless of how high of grade you get, the flat will likely be a tad dry, at least compared to the point.

                          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.

                          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’.
