    Hello from Tucson

    New (trial) member here. I stumbled onto amazingribs.com with a google search for Smoking. Amazing site. Having a relatively new electric smoker I decided to try some of the recipes here. I made the Last Meal Ribs first and watched in amazement as my wife (who says she doesn't like smoked) devoured them. We then found a piece of brisket flat at a good price and decided to try it next. I immediately came here to see what Meathead had to say about brisket. Lord knows what would happened if I hadn't. Two words -- "the stall". I had never heard of it although I had probably experienced it. The guy who introduced me to low and slow roasting had never mentioned it, but I did notice I could never figure out when things would be cooked. Armed with the knowledge that the stall would happen and what I could do about it my first attempt at a brisket was moderately sucessful. These experiences convinced me to buy Meathead's book while I was trying to decide whether to join the Pitmaster Club. It arrived today with a 90 free trial for the club so here I am.

          I'll warn you now just allocate the money, for this site! The people in the pit are great people and very helpful they have upped my BBQ quotient tremendously. Another poster today asked for some help with a company cook out and Man oh Man did the pit crew come thorough giving the guy all kinds of info that will be paramount to him pulling off that cook! There are no Dumb questions (Believe me I've asked a lot of them) what every you ask they will try their best to help you out!! Welcome I'll bet you stay!!

            GadjetGriller is correct, there are no dumb questions (only the ones he asks).

            Welcome to the Pit Tucson Bill ...👍

            You've got the smoked meat itch. You bought a smoker. You're trying out the Pit... I can pretty much guarantee you will be here still... in 91 days.👌

            Pit members will overwhelm your with knowledge that you can't get on the public side of AmazingRibs.com. Plus were nice guys to chat with.😎

            I've spent a lot of time in Tucson selling Sam Levitz millions of dollars of upholstered furniture over the years. Sam and I became close friends. I'm retired now but I always enjoyed going to Tucson. It's a great place to play golf too.👍

                      LOL... He just bought a smoker.😎 It appears he's already in stage 1. His next step will be gadgets, lots of gadgets.😆 Within a year it will be a KBQ or a Kamado probably. You know the drill.

                      Thanks to all for the warm welcome and encouragement. You're probably right about my outcome here -- given how much I spend on stuff I don't even really want the price of membership here is pretty cheap. 90 days should give me plenty of time to decide if I really fit here. I only post in a few forums. All special interest, and all well moderated. I long ago realized there's no point to an unmoderated forum. Al

                          I think you will find the Pit a very cordial place to interact with ALL of the members. Mainly because we talk about outdoor cooking. We DON't Talk about politics, religion or any topic that can be seen as offensive in a family atmosphere. Everyone knows that and respects those guidelines. It is rare for the moderators to need to get involved in heated discussions.

                          But David Parrish is an ex-Military guy and he can bust your chops if he feels the need to protect the Pit.👌
