    LA Pork Butt

    I received a membership to the Pitmaster Club from my daughter this Christmas 2014. I live in south Louisiana and have been barbecuing on and off for the past 40 years. I owned an original crockery Kamodo from Japan for over 20 years but it finally wore out. About four years ago I invested in the Big Green Egg. I love it! I am fascinated by the variations in regional barbecue, especially the variations in barbecue sauces. I'm comfortable with cooking low and slow on my Big GreenEegg, but I'm still trying to master grilling on the big green egg. It's more challenging then low and slow, but I'm getting better with each cook. I like to grill multiple foods like meats and vegetables, so timinging them to finish at the same time is a challenge. I don't do much beef - mostly pork, chicken, seafood and vegetables. I am planning to build a table for my Big Green Egg in 2015, so I am very interested in tips on what to include when planning to build one. Guidance and advice are welcomed.

    Welcome LAPB! Having lived in both, wasn't sure from the title whether you were going to be from LA or L.A. I lived in N'Awlins for a few years and my Dad lived out in LaPlace. We've got some Eggers and the like around here that will definitely help you with your challenges.


      Thanks for the welcome! I look forward to learning new things.


        A warm welcome from Houston(Alaska). There is quite the brain trust here. However, unlike many other sites, there is a friendly vibe with civility at all times, giving a person a chance to progress where and how they want to. Enjoy.


          Welcome LA PB! We're glad you're here. You've got a very good daughter (or maybe she just likes your barbecue)



            I'm from Gueydan. Been in east Texas since 2001. Hadn't been home in a couple years. May make it to Basil for the 4th.


              I lived in Liberty, TX for seven years and my neighbors Robert and Louise Christ were from Basil.


                My aunt lives in Basile. Technically Duralde, the suburb of Basil.


                  Welcome LAPB


                    Welcome aboard LAPB


                      Welcome, I need to do some more work on grilling too, especially veggies.


                        Welcome to the Pit LA Pork Butt , I live in Sulphur, near Lake Charles in the SW corner of the state.

                        Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                        Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine.

                        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.

                        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. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                        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.

                        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.
