    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!

                          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.

                          Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

                          Also, it's very important that you add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list in case you are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner!
