          Hello Adam from missouri


            Hi Adam , welcome to the Pit


              Welcome Adam! We're glad you're here.


                Thanks for the warm welcome! I've learned a lot on here and over at the Weber board, but this morning I learned by doing (and not doing it well). I'm attempting my first pork butt today and as I was putting the center section, of my WSM, over the fire base, I got the plastic part that plugs into the transmitter of my ET-732 caught between the sections. I wound up spilling some hot water on the coals and my foot. The coals weren't a loss, but I have a nice red spot on my foot. The piece on the probe melted and is unusable. Here are the things I learned today: Wear something other than tennis shoes while setting up the WSM; make sure your wires are out of the way; and stay humble. The humble part is part of today's lesson because last week I made some killer ribs. They were truly delicious. I posted them all over Facebook and Instagram and basked in the glow of all the compliments I received. I felt like a bbq rock star, up until around 0400 this morning. The butt is on the smoker and so far is doing well. I'll probably still post it on Facebook and Instagram, but I won't forget the lessons I learned today. Barbecue can be humbling. Stay humble.


                  That's a good lesson... Humble is one day at a time.


                    Hey there Adam


                      Welcome, Adam. Sorry for your mishap, but way to persevere. I hope your foot is ok.



                        Welcome Aboard Adam... yes humble is good. I have been humbled myself, a few times with this game.


                          Hi Adam, hot water on the foot is not good! Spilled a bunch of boiling water on the top of my foot one time when I was trying to drain some pasta. Lotsa colorful language, hoppin very quickly to the shower to dose in cold water, and a huge blister. Very wary dumping water thanks to that lesson. Welcome to the pit.


                            Thanks again everyone! The foot is fine, thankfully. The pb turned out really good, despite my mishap. I think my ribs were better though.


                              SMS did you wrap the butt? How did you prep it before the cook and what rub did you use? Temps cooked at? We'll get your butt in good shape for next time. lol

                              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.

                              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.

                              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.
