    Hello from Wisconsin

    Hi everyone. My name is Josh and I have been licking my lips at all the bbq I have read about and tasted. I finally bought my first smoker/grill yesterday. It's a pit barrel cooker. I can't wait to use it although I wish it was spring and not fall. I have learned a lot from all of you and can't wait to post my cooks that I do.

    You gonna love that Pit Barrel. Just did 3 small butts (5lbers) in mine.

    Thanks for the support!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



      Welcome to the Pit. You got yourself a great lil cooker for your first one. Enjoy the great food it cooks,


        Welcome to The Pit CGW! We have a lot of PBC fans here. We even have a dedicated PBC channel right here.

        When you have a moment check out tip #1 in the "Forum Tips and Techniques" thread. It will walk you through how to complete your signature. Also check out the "Welcome and Guidelines from the Pit Boss" to get a sense of how our community works. You can find those threads here.

        Huskee also has a great writeup in the same channel on how to post pics. We love pics. Post pics often!


          Thanks everyone! Really want to start cooking!


            Hey there Clark/Josh. Love the National Lampoon videos. I call people Clark all the time.

            Looking forward to seeing you around here more. Warning, starting out on a PBC will ruin you for using other cookers. I recommend a stickburner, they grow hair on your chest, lol.


              Yeah I thought about for a long time of getting a Yoder offset. I don't think I would have known what I was doing on that thing.

              I do call people Clark all the time too. "That's a beauty Clark."


                WELCOME to the pit Clark.

                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!

                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.

                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!

                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.
