    Greetings from Camarillo, CA.

    I joined the Pit in December 2016 but never posted before. I just stayed in the background learning. But I come from a long line of grilling guys. I remember my grandfather soaking charcol in gas to start the fire! And remember my dad grilling everything he could. We finally started to get serious in 1975 when we bought our first of many Weber Kettles. It was great and when I went to Iran in 77 I took a brand new Weber with me. Then we moved to Athens and finally to England all the time grilling whatever I could find. I left the kettle in England and bought a new one in 81 when we moved back to the states. All the locals just figured I was a crazy American cooking in all types of weather.
    I have had lots of different cooking devices and now have one of the first Traeger BBQ126, not many of these around. I modified it with a rotisserie and can get 5 chickens on it. I really love this unit. I also have a Brinkmann 5 burner with a searing grill and a burner on the sides. I do a lot of reverse searing and now with my new Sous Vide cooker I'm doing a lot more. In fact I just pulled 3 Tri-Tip roasts out of the water and will smoke and sear then for Easter tomorrow.
    Sorry I rambled on a bit but I GOT HISTORY. :-) Thanks for listening.

            • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

              Welcome to the pit! You have plenty of experience, that’s always good! We look forward to you teaching us new tricks.

              Since you’re ‘new’, and if you haven't already done so, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

              Also, it's very important that you:

              Give us an email address you actually use. You can check the email we have on file for you by clicking your name in the upper-right, then User Settings, then the Account tab. You currently cannot change your email on file with us since it’s tied to your Pitmaster Club account as well as our payment processor, Stripe. Don’t worry though, we’d be happy to change it for you. PM (private message) ”Huskee” with your email change request, or via email at [email protected]

              Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam! This is important so you can receive special deals we occasionally work out for our members, receive notices about your account, such as if you’re up for renewal or are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner, which is open to all USA members or those with a USA delivery address (we’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us)!

              Thanks for joining!

                      Feel free to ramble! The only problem is I have that ear worm stuck in my head!

                      Rollin' rollin' rollin'
                      Rollin' rollin' rollin'
                      Rollin' rollin' rollin'
                      Rollin' rollin' rollin'
                      Rawhide

                      How does ramble become that. I don't know... It's a curse
