    Good evening from central Illinois!

    Kevin here, owner of South Street Barbecue in Mount Sterling, IL. I've been smoking meat for around 20 years and got serious about it in the last seven or so. I left a perfectly good job as a truck driver to start my concession trailer in July 2017 and haven't looked back since! We're broke but we're happy and I get to cook every day!

    I'm really looking forward to raising my game with what I can learn on here from everyone!

    Huntington Beach welcomes you and your spirit. I cook all day and am broke too! Making friends already you are. Thank you for your service.

    i wish you great success and even better health!!

            Also, it's very important that you:

              Welcome from Colorado!


                Dude, great to have you here in thePit SouthStreetBarbecue !! This is a great place to find engaged and friendly folks with a lot of know on the barbecue front! I opened my Barbecue Trailer March 2017, and it's been fun and work! Here's my thread where I post periodic updates on our little journey of BarbecueFun, https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...ckbarbecue-com

                Can't wait to Sharpen Iron with you!


                  Welcome to the Pit from NE Washington state. Along with tips, techniques, and recipes about BBQ we have a lot of fun. If you like music, go to this thread to hear what others are listening to and share what you like. For jokes, go to this thread. Happy to have you along and looking forward to your participation.


                    Hi welcome! Glad to hear things are working out.


                      Welcome. I did a similar thing and just getting going. I know feel confident with my smoking abilities because of what I've learnt and put into practice (lots of test cooks etc.) all thanks to the guidance of this site and the great pit people (piteeples).


                        Thanks everyone! I came over from the BBQ Brethren and this site came highly recommended from them so I knew it would be a good place to learn and share knowledge. I can't wait for the day I have some knowledge to share!


                          Hey, broke southerner here. Glad someone else can take cooking everyday.

                          Of course I ain't no traveler so I guess I would rather cook than drive everyday.

                          DWCowles drives everyday and cooks everyday he's not driving. But "only" for 50-75 at a time. hehehehe

                            Grilla Proves That Good Things Come In Small Packages

                            The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint of the Grilla Pellet Smoker makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, including on a condo patio. Click here for our review on this unique smoker.

                            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. Click here for more about what makes this grill special.

                            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. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. 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.
