    Very happy to support this site, as I pretty much use it for EVERYTHING. I'm still a novice griller / chef, but I'm having a lot of fun getting the hang of everything. Oh, and I am really happy my food doesn't taste like lighter fluid any more.

    Thanks for everything you do.

        Welcome to The Pit Eric! Once you get that signature filled out why not find the "best way to start a fire" thread in the accessories channel and let us know how you broke that bad lighter fluid habit!

            Lucky's is the finest Steakhouse in the state bar none. My wife and I have our anniversary dinner there every year.

            However the place I was referring to is down the road just a little farther it's called The Country Smokehouse. For me the brisket leaves something to be desired but the pulled pork is top notch. Next time you visit your friends do yourself a favor and see what they have to offer. Or if they're not up for it I'm always willing to make a road trip

            Nope, can't say that I have. I sell soda for a living so that business isn't exactly on my radar.

              I'm a half hour west of Midland. Have you tried Bone Daddy's? A small humble place, back off the beaten path but some tasty ribs. Haven't tried his brisket or chicken.
