    New member in the Lou

    Hello checking the site out for a bit but joined today. My real name is Ed and I live just outside St Louis in St Charles, MO. Other than using my Ugly Drum Smoker or gas grill, I love sports. I'm a huge Blues fan (season tickets for 30+ years) and a big Cardinals fan. Played baseball into college but gave it up because the shoulder told me it was time. I enjoy bowling and playing golf and spending time at the lake on our boat.

    I got my smoker 2 year ago and use it at least monthly maybe a little more frequently. It only took me asking for it for 4 years before the wife finally gave in. Have done a bunch of pulled pork and a few other things as well. I'd love to get a little more diverse but every time I say I'm going to smoke something the family says they want pulled pork.

    Looking forward to digging deeper into the site and seeing what gems I can find.

    A hearty welcome from Illinois. You have come to the right place to go gem mining.

      Welcome to The Pit Ed. Next time smoke a chuck roast without telling them. Do it the same as a butt, but with a beef rub, (BBBR and Montreal Steak Seasoning come to mind). Since it's thinner than a butt, it will probably cook faster. If you are worried about the size, smoke two.

                      Welcome fparted. I can relate to cooking a lot of pulled pork and not much else for a time. I enjoyed it and so did the family, friends and neighbors. As has been said, you must be doing a fantastic job.

                      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. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

                      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’.

You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
