    Hello Pit Krewe

    My name is Roland Pinault and I am a native New Englander living in BBQ country for the last 15 years. Residing in Northwest Arkansas, I am 3 hrs from KCMO, 5 hrs from Memphis, 5 hrs from Dallas, 2 hrs from Tulsa and 9hrs from NOLA. So I've been eating my way through some of the best digs in this fine country. I keep my old school New England recipies close and have learned a ton from local folks from this hub of Q. Dr. Blonder's article on the science of the stall hooked me on this site.
    This site has fought me a lot, and my wife hooked me up with a membership for Christmas!
    I use a big 12 yr old char-broil gas grill called "Grillzilla"with cast iron burners, a cheap charcoal grill, and a 40" masterbuilt electric smoker enhanced with an a-maze-n 5×8 pellet smoke box.
    Love all things pork, so looking forward to sharing and reading some porknography on this site.
    My second big area of exploration is brining and curing . I have used many teachings here to do homemade pastrami, ham and bacon. Going for the full corned beef experience soon.

    Woo hoo let's cook !

    Merry Christmas and welcome to the Pit from Baltimore, MD! 😎 We're glad you're here!


      Welcome and your certainly know how to fill that sucker up.


        Welcome from Indiana


          Welcome to the Pit! As you could guess I love pork, too. I grew up in NOLA thus the LA. I now live in Dallas where beef is cheap and pork more pricey. How far are you from Dallas? They are developing some pretty good Q joints. I cook on a Big Green Egg. My daughter gifted my membership for Christmas 2014. The Pit is a fun place to be.

                            A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them.

                            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.

                            Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

                            Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                            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’.

                            GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone

                            GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
