    Excited to be here!!

    Hey guys, I am excited to be here!

    I have been smoking for about 6 years, I get a couple more smokes in each year. Finding time is the hardest thing especially with 3 young boys under age 5 (no twins) But they are are very helpful if you know what mean!

    ​​​​​​I got interested in smoking and cooking meat using an old Brinkmann Smok-in-grill that we won years ago and no one used. It has been laid to rest but it played it's part. I currently use a Smoke Vault which has served me well for a few years now. I also use a homemade wood box for cooking chicken and a vintage Weber grill that won't quit!! I am saving up to upgrade to a Backwoods Chubby charcoal someday, hopefully sooner than later.

    I am a farmer in Iowa specializing in poultry with corn and soybeans as well. I am a die-hard International Harvester guy and enjoy working in my timber with my Burr Oak trees. I have been married for over 5 years and have 3 boys. I also coach track and field at the high school level. This pretty much sums me up.



    Welcome from another farmer in NE Washington.


      Welcome to The Pit! Thank you for the support. My uncle has a farm outside of Fairfax, IA. He's one of the last guys raising hogs out there. I spent many summers down there as a kid and still make it down to help in the fall and spring. Great times. Are you a Hawkeye or Cyclone?

                        Welcome to The Pit. If your Weber uses charcoal, you could get a Slow N Sear and a Temperature controller and smoke overnight and still get a good night's sleep.

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It’s among the best bargains for a smoker in the world. This baby cooks circles around cheap offset smokers because temperature control is so much easier. Click here to read our detailed review and the raves from people who own them.
