    Greetings from Central Oregon

    Central Oregon - 300+ days of sunshine each year. Or so says the local tourism booster. In any case, greetings from a wonderful partof the state. Long time reader; grilling and smoking with a trusty old weber kettle and a smokenator (thanks for that tip several years ago!) and a weber gas grill for quick and easy grilling during the week or whenever ....


    Hey Brad... nice to have you! Weber kettle and smokenator make BBQing happen right!

    I don't live far from you (relatively) I am in western Idaho.

    Ya know since you are new, the Mods are gonna give you some homework... I am just helping them out so they don't look like bad guys, assigning homework right out of the chute... LOL! They are gonna want you to read this... just a heads up

    NEW MEMBERS, please read: here's your homework assignment


      Right on Brad - welcome and hello from the Charleston, SC area!


        Howdy from Texas. Thanks for the support!!!


          Greetings from Houston, Alaska. You live in a pretty nice area of the world. I spent many a happy day fishing in central Oregon. The same goes with chukar hunting, which are fantastic eating on the bbq, by the way.

            I've been known to pick up a guitar from time to time...lol...However my main instrument is drums. Anyway, Chukar is a type of partridge. Not a great deal of meat, but tasty. The main meat is breast meat(like our local Alaska Spruce Grouse), so direct heat broiling seems to work best. Just keep the heat under control, baste, and you'll be golden.The rest of the carcass is for stock. I have visited the assignment page, and will make any profile adjustments accordingly.
            Back to chukar. Like many wild birds, chukar is low in fat, so high temps are out. Moderate heat is the name of the game here. I use an oil-based wet rub. It was never the same twice, however it is the method that is important, not necessarily the spices.

          Greetings, Brad! Welcome to The Pit! Please check out our welcome package (aka home work for new members) here at this post! <------------ it's a link, click it.

          Thank you for the support! Look forward to more interaction with you in the near future.

          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.

          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 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.
