    Chuck, new member from AZ

    Hello, I'm a new member, out of Goodyear AZ. Have been BBQing and smoking foods as weekend activity for about 10 yrs and have some things that I'd like to get a whole lot better at, such as brisket. Haven't had much success on that one. I currently use a bradley smoker, (10yrs now), and am looking at moving up to a Green Mountain Jim Bowie pellet model.
    Am looking forward to learning a lot more than I now know. My biggest success thus far is my smoked beans dish. Hopefully I did this posting right, if not I'm sure the moderator will let me know rather quickly

    Howdy from up the hill in Flag! You posted just fine! I've been using pellet poopers for about 8 years now, first a Traeger BBQ125 and now a Yoder YS640. Good luck with your Jim Bowie!

      Ozric, my man, let's get your signature filled out. You have a darn nice smoker in that Yoder, let's get it listed. If you're having trouble I can help you. PM me with all your gear, your thermometers, etc and we'll get it posted!

      That's a nice equipment list. =)

    Welcome to the The Pit!!! You've come to the right place to get better. Regarding brisket, you should talk to Jerod. (see Today's posts) He's on everyday and knows his brisket. He walked me through doing a Scary 15 lb. PRIME brisket. Anyway, we look forward to hearing from you, happy your here!!


      Right on armycsm! A big hello from the Lowcountry of SC!


        Welcome armycsm! Yes, you posted nicely, thank you! A pellet smoker will do a mean brisket that's for sure. They have a gentler smoke profile with foods cooked on them, and this serves beef well IMO. I think you will like it a little better than the electric. Be sure to check out Meathead's Texas Brisket recipe if you haven't already. It has everything you need to know to do it right, as long as you follow it to a T. I used his recipe the first time I ever did one and it was perfect!

        Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains lots of how-tos and please-dos!

        Hope to hear & see more from you.


          Hey there Chuck!


            thanks for all of the responses, have been aiming to read as much as I can daily, but work got in the way.Thanks Ozric, who is up the big hill and getting a lot of snow today. Once I get closer to that Green Mountain pellet smoker, i'll be
            looking for some clues.

            Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party!

            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.

            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.

            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

            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.
