    Not so new member, still excited to be here

    It has taken me too long to post here, I have been a member and lurker from very early and frankly, just too busy to make the time to update my signature and post here. That is a poor excuse, but I choose to invoke it anyway.

    Excited to continue to use this resource and add my experiences to the collective expertise.

    ​Already love my PBC and have had success at chicken, brisket, pork tenderloin, and a "test" turkey. Looking forward to Thanksgiving where I will be serving a spatchcocked turkey from the PBC and may also try to smoke some lentils (with wood added, of course) on the PBC for the vegan wife the night before.

    Welcome teddink! Great job on your signature, glad to have you popping in to say hello. You'r ein good company with the ever-expanding team of PBCers here. If you haven't read it yet, there's a great write-up on posting pictures here, check it out when you can. You're hereby tasked with wowing us with food shots of your PBC cooks

    Look forward to more interaction from you. Enjoy The Pit!


      Hello ted, nice to see you on the forum!


        Hello Ted, welcome to the Pit. Lots of fellow PBC'ers here, looking forward to your cooks.


          Welcome! I had a girlfriend who was vegan for a very short period, she made me choke down one of her burgers. I hope things have improved significantly over the past decade or so.

            Was she a vegan for a short time or your girlfriend for a short time? :-)

            I've had girlfriends in the past who were vegetarian, but vegan would likely be a deal breaker. Particularly now that I eat high protein, low carb...

            Not sure, probably both. I remember she was really pretty so there was that, but I always had to go eat before seeing her. Nothing like a little Jack in the Box on the way to see your vegan girlfriend.

          Welcome Ted, glad to see your out of the closet now. I look forward to your posts and pics.

          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.

          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

          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.
