    Greetings From Columbus, Ohio

    Hi All,

    I'm Cameron but most just call me Cam. I've been a big fan of this site since 2009 I want to say and I've definitely learned a lot from this site and who doesn't mind reading about the wonderful world of BBQ!!!

    I love to grill and smoke and if you are in Columbus area I would like to link up with a few folks to cook with and try out new recipes with.

    Current Smokers/Grills: Primo XL & Good One Marshall

    Previous Smokers/Grills: Weber Kettle 22inch, Weber Smokey Mountain 22inch


    Happy Smoking,

    Cam

    Hey there Cam, welcome to The Pit! Sounds like you have a great setup there, I'm actually jealous. I've been drooling over the Primo XL for a good while now... Question- did you get rid of your Webers, or just dont use them since you have the big dogs now?

    When you get a minute, check out Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, as well as the tips posts in that channel. These will help you learn your way around The Pit, as well as set up your signature. There's also a post that explains the best way to post nice big pics here... we like to see bragging pictures of your equipment and your cooks. We look forward to hearing more from you! Enjoy!

      Hey Aaron,

      I got the Primo XL about two years back and it's a great piece of work. I just got the Good One this past July so right now i've been usually the Primo XL as mainly a grill with Grillgrates but if i'm doing a overnight smoke I will use the Primo because it just that easy. I've gone 22 hours on my Primo without having to reload and with the BBQ Guru Wifi it makes overnight smokes a breeze; even though I still don't get as much sleep those nights but I think i'm too excited for the final product LMAO!

      As for my Weber Kettle she got smashed by a huge tree branch during bad thunderstorm and the WSM I sold to a friend who has been trying to get into smoking. I'm hoping to catch another Weber Kettle on sell over the next month or so.

        You've solidified my desires for a Primo even further! I hear you on the sleepless overnight cooks. I haven't done one in a long time, (brisket is very hard to come by where I live, and ribs and such are day jobs) but I remember it well. Of course, I run an offset stickburner w/ no electronics which is the WORST if you want to try to sleep. You get about as much rest as the cowboys in the old west trying to sleep under the stars while fending off hungry wolves.

        Nice meeting you Cam.

              I live in central Michigan. One supermarket butcher has to pay $7-9/lb to buy briskets, so he wont do it since he can't sell it...and another has been ordering them but they never come in on the trucks he says. There's one butcher I havent asked yet. Even Meijer wants $8/lb which I don't want to pay. I've been doing more pulled beef and roasts and skipping the brisket. [wipes tear]

                I'm originally from Michigan! Born and raised in Flint, Michigan and attended college down in Rochester, Michigan at Oakland University. Brisket prices have been crazy this year and it really hurts me to the core because this year i'm been doing my own corned beef and pastrami from start to finish.

                  Cool, a fellow Michigander/Michiganite/Michiganian!...there's some debate as to what we're really called. I would like to venture into pastrami....but again, brisket prices... Although I can get corned brisket flats much cheaper which doesn't make sense. I could always just smoke it myself and hope the factory corning is tolerable, but I'm leary.

                    Yeah it's like Russian Roulette with store bought ones that's why I started doing it myself plus I can pick the exact type of Brisket I like with the fat i'm looking for. I found a nice little cheapo meat slicer so I can get those paper thin slices for sandwiches.

                    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!

                    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’.

                    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.

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                    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.
