    Hello, my name's Eugene and I just signed up to become a club member. I'm very new to barbecuing having just started last summer. I had a chance to taste Adam Perry Lang's short ribs when he set up shop in Hollywood for a few weeks and I've been working on replicating it ever since (visited him again just a couple weeks ago when he stopped by again). I bought a 22.5" Weber Kettle back then and in addition to the short ribs, I was able to follow a few other recipes: beef leg shank, pork loin ribs, and crispy pork belly. For the most part, I think they've turned out good enough to feed the family and friends, but I know there's so much more to learn and understand in order to make great BBQ. Aside from joining this site, I did decide to take the next step by purchasing a 22.5" WSM yesterday. Spent all day today to get the seasoning going. Anyways, I'm looking forward to learning from the folks here at amazingribs.com and taking my skills to the next level. Thanks!

    Welcome to The Pit! When you have a moment read my welcome and guidelines post and tips and techniques post. They will show you how to complete your signature. Again, Welcome! You'll find them here.


      Welcome Eugene!! You are going to like it here. Lots of folks have your cookers and are turning out some fantastic products. I look forward to your posts and pics.


        Welcome, I assume you've seen the Harry Soo seminar here in the pit? If not, it will help you get that new WSM up and running.

        Edited to add link.

          Welcome Eugenek! We look forward to helping you in your journey to BBQ bliss. There are many great folks here and everyone who participates on the boards here are more than willing to offer advice, tips, tricks, and recipes. You will like it here like Marauderer says. That 22.5" WSM is a beast. Before long you'll master it and you'll be giving advice!


            Hello Eugene welcome to the Pit.


              Thanks for the warm welcome and the link to Harry Soo's seminar!


                Hey there Eugene Welcome


                  Eugene, if you follow Meathead's instruction... You will make people happy! People laugh at my "fleet" of weber kettles. But when I work them all together, it is like an orchestra!
                  Welcome to the world of barbeque! Good Luck!

                  Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

                  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! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs

                  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.

                  The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

                  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(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.
