    From Browns Summit NC

    Hello, my name is Jonathan. I've been a fan of Amazing Ribs for several years. I've borrowed recipes and techniques, and have enjoyed lots of good reading. I, like a lot of others, am embarrassed that it took me so long to join.
    I did the majority of my cooking on a Phoenix gas grill for the last 15 or so years. Lots of burgers, steaks, chicken, and pork (shoulders butts and a few ribs). I've also cooked shoulders on big cookers using hickory coals, checking the temperature by laying your hand on the lid. About a month ago, I retired the Phoenix, RIP, and bought a Kamado Joe Big Joe. Thanks Costco. I'm still learning my way around it. I started out cooking chicken, burgers, and pork chops. More recently, I cooked a couple of pizza's and some Cobia on it. I'm really impressed with it so far. I'm looking forward to getting low and slow to cook a butt and some ribs. Then on to some beef. I've never cooked a brisket, they're hard to find around here, but I'm gonna give it a try.
    I'm excited about the opportunity to continue learning and told my wife that I want Meathead's book for Father's Day. Anyway, thanks for all the good advice and recipes over the years

    Welcome to the Pit from Charlotte! About the brisket, if you have a Costco convenient to you take a look there. Ours in Charlotte has full packer Prime for $2.99/lb.


      Welcome to The Pit Jonathan.


        smokinsteve thanks for the info. I've checked the Costco in Greensboro a few times and only find brisket parts.


          RonB Thanks

                  Welcome to the Pit! If you have liked what you have cooked so far, you are going to love low and slow. Ceramic cookers shine when doing low and slow. Start with a Boston Butt. I like to cook mine at 225 overnight and wrap it at 200 to put it a faux cambro for two hours or so before serving at noon.

                              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.

                              Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                              Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                              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.

                              Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                              3 burner gas grill

                              The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                              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.
