    I'd say as long as the meat gets cooked before it gets freezer burn, your supply is where it needs to be Welcome to The Pit!

    Welcome and thanks for the support, and congrats on the problem.

    Love my PBC.

    I wish I had your problem, I have the PBC but a distinct lack of meat. Got that thing loaded with 20 pounds of goodies now. My wife loves the PBC because I actually do things around the house and can go and do things while its doing its thing.
    The 3 hour drive is a bit much since I'm sure you could manage to do just as well at home, but I can understand, sometimes I only want to go to Chiefs games so I can go eat BBQ.

    You have a problem

    Rusty here. This is my first foray into the Pit. Joined several months ago but have been in the shadows. It's time to step out of the shadows because my daughter told me yesterday that I have a problem. When I got home from work last night, my daughter met me in the garage and opened the freezer door to the side by side in the garage. She pointed inside the freezer and said "Dad, you have a problem." I have 9 briskest and a bone in pork shoulder in that freezer. What's the problem? I'm glad she didn't look in the other freezer in the garage. She would have seen 4 pork butts, 6 chickens, 5 racks of pork ribs, 20 pounds of sausage, 2 turkeys and 3 more briskets! So what? I like to cook large quantities of meat, especially brisket. For my taste, there is nothing better than a great brisket. Brisket is my crack. I bought a Tucker Cooker a few years ago and love it. I cook a lot for our Church. Last big cook was 8 briskets and 30 pounds of sausage. It was outstanding. It seems like a waste to fire up the Tucker for just one brisket or one pork butt. So I bought a Pit Barrel Cooker a few weeks ago. My wife was not happy. She already refers to the Tucker as my "girlfriend". As in "you spend more time with your girlfriend on the weekend than you do with me". So I gues now I am not only cheating on wife, I am cheating on my girlfriend too. Fortunately my wife likes good barbecue. Today we are going to Black's in Lockhart (3 hour drive) for beef ribs. Can't wait. One of these days I will tackle beef short ribs. Until then, I'll leave it to the pros. So I guess I need to know if my daughter is right. Do I have a problem?

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 Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
