    Hello there! How's everybody doing? My name is Ulises Folh and I like the art of BBQ very much. I have learned a lot of stuff from this site and in gratitude I felt like becoming a member. I've gone from gas grills to an off-set and now I own a WSM. My favorite, of course, is the WSM. It wasn't until I got the WSM that I started making some serious BBQ and I have a bunch of family members to testify for it. To follow your suggestion I'm including some pics of my equipment and stuff that I've made. Some personal information: I live in Miami, Florida with my wife and two daughters. I just recently retired from the FAA, Air Traffic Control, with a total of 32 years federal service. Four of those in the U.S. Navy. I'm looking forward to continue to learn from the pros and to keep the fire burning. Thank you!

    Welcome Mr Folh! Glad to have you here. I am a huge fan of the TV shows like Mayday Air Disasters and Air Crash Investigation and such, and in watching those I've learned to have a huge admiration for the work controllers do. Even though I do not fly, lol. Bravo on a such a rewarding career and future fun in retirement. Oh, and thank you for joining and supporting us! Great pictures by the way!

    Here's some 'new member' homework for you:
    When you get a minute check out Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, if you haven't already, as well as the tips posts in that channel. These will help you learn your way around The Pit, as well as set up your signature (tip #1) with your equipment. There's also a post that explains the best way to post nice big pics here...

    We look forward to hearing more from you! Enjoy


      Welcome Ulises! I think you're going to find you came to the right place.

      Love the video. Tell us, based on the last few seconds I take it you slice the sides off the sirloin then put it back on the grill to cook until you have cooked sides again. Do you salt every time, or just at the beginning?

      Your pics aren't showing up as embedded files. Take a look at Huskee's suggestion above on how to post nice big pics and I think you'll be much happier with how your photos are presented in the thread.

      Again, welcome!

        Yes, you slice it off and put it back. Salt as needed. Is not for a sit down dinner. It is for gathering around the pit and having drinks and other items to eat.

      Well another Florida Man has joined. Welcome, I think you will enjoy it.


        Welcome Ulises!

        Hope you can join us on the bullet smoker channel to talk WSM.



          Hello Jon. Thank you very much for the welcome. Yes, I'll be coming often to the bullet smoker channel to talk WSM. This cooker is my first in which you can make so real serious BBQ. I love it.


            Glad to hear that UFO, we are the last stand against the PBC take over ya know. We need all the help we can get. : )

              Hello Guy. Thank you very much. I see that you live in Niceville, FL. I lived near by in Milton for a couple of years. When I was in the service. Loooong time ago.


                Jon, what is the PBS?


                  Didn't know about a take over either.


                    Its a bit of a joke my friend. Its PBC, or Pit Barrel cooker. The latest and greatest fad in backyard pits. We as WSM owner need to stick together, again thats in jest. ;-)



                      Got it. Thank you. We will stick together, that's right.


                        There's no end of fans for both the WSM and the PBC here in The Pit. I've got a PBC but have much respect for the WSM.


                          The PBC is a pretty respectable. I've actually seen them I just didn't know'em by that name. A friend has one, calls it a drum smoker.


                            First record of BBQ in Homeric Hymn to Hermes circa 750 B.C. I think you'll like.

                            "For it was Hermes who first invented fire-sticks and fire. Next he took many dried sticks and piled them thick and plenty in a sunken trench: a flame began to glow, spreading afar the blast of fierce-burning fire. And while the strength of glorious Hephaestus was beginning to kindle the fire, he dragged out two lowing, horned cows close to the fire; for great strength was with him. He threw them both panting upon their backs on the ground, and rolled them on their sides, bending their necks over, and pierced their vital chord. Then he went from task to task: first he cut up the rich fatted meat, and pierced it with wooden spits, and roasted flesh and the honorable chine and the paunch full of dark blood all together. He laid them there upon the ground, and spread out the hides on a rugged rock: and so they are still there many ages afterwards, a long, long time after all this, and are continually."

                            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.

This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                            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.
