    Hello from central New Jersey

    Hello everyone. I've been reading amazinribs.com for a couple of years and find it a wealth of knowledge. I finally broke down and joined the club. I had a Weber Genesis silver c for many years. It finally got to the point where it wasn't worth fixing anymore. I then bought a Broil King Regal which I think is great. I have a Char Griller smokin pro which I do not like. After fighting with it for 3 years I just bought a Camp Chef SmokePro DLX. It is being delivery Friday. I haven't decided what to smoke first. I will entertain any suggestions.

    Welcome Jetwrecker


      I always go with a pork butt, very forgiving and a good way to try out a new smoker. Welcome aboard!

        Thanks. That's what I was thinking. Good thing my wife likes pulled pork sandwiches.

        +1 for pork butt. That was one of my first cooks as well and it was awesome!

        Or if you're feeling more conservative, pork ribs! Where are you - we're in Atlantic Highlands?

        Welcome from Colorado ...


          Welcome to The Pit. It wouldn't hurt to throw a chuck roast on beside the butt. Pulled beef is even better than pulled pork.

                        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.

                        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.
