    Hello from PIT

    Jason here / Jay Z / Big J / J from Pittsburgh PA. I joined to show some support to the site that I received so much from over the last 4 years. More than time to give something back and get more involved. Oh, and also get more awesome info!

    The information on this site probably saved me thousands in ruined meat, years of trial and error, and confidence in that I know guests do not leave my house saying "that was nasty." Every recipe tried comes out good if not great on the first run. If it's just good, it is because of my mistake.

    Now a little about what I'm working with:
    Weber Kettle
    Grill Dome
    24x48 reverse flow stickburner with warming cabinet from Smokerbuilder.com

    I started on a Weber kettle that I still have and love dearly. Then I purchased a Grill Dome XL (similar to big green egg) with a BBQ Guru temperature control system. After 2yrs, I am now ready to sell it. This summer I built one UDS and really liked the smoked food coming off that. And the beginning of this month, I picked up my first stickburner - 24"x48" reverse flow w/warming cabinet from Smokerbuilder.com. Oh, almost forgot, got another UDS from Pit Docters.

    I also roast awesome coffee.

    Thank you for everything!

    Right on! A big welcome from the Lowcountry of SC!


      Hey there Jason! Welcome to the pit.


        Nice intro post Jason! And welcome to The Pit, we sure appreciate your support. I too am a stickburner. I love the results from cooking with logs. And I love good mean cup o' dark roast! you'll have to share with us some pics of your gear, especially that new stickburner!


          Thank you all!

          Is there a mobile app for this forum? I tried searching the forum but could not find anything. But I am also not the best at searching forums. I'd love to post pics, they are all on my phone as I rarely use a desktop/laptop anymore outside of work.

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

          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.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
