        • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
          1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
          2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
          3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
          4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
          5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
          6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
          7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
          8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
          9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
          10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
          11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
          12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
          12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

          Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

          I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
          I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.

        Dude, welcome welcome! I'm just across the Sabine from you, in Lake Charles. You'll have a great time here in thePit and learn a ton.

        I learned barbecue using this wonderful site as a guide, and opened a barbecue food truck in 2016, and am opening a restaurant early 2019. Come by and get some of that on-point barbecue! See you soon.

                Greetings from Boston. Like you, good BBQ restaurants around here are very hard to find so I just do it myself (and like you have a few beers while doing so). Enjoy the Pit. Lots of good info here.

                  My mom is from Scituate. Thanks to her I know how to make Boston Baked beans, clam chowder, and Yorkshire pudding.

                  Thanks again for the welcoming responses.

                  I've been exploring the site all week and I like it so much that I upgraded to the 3 year membership special being offered. I also bought Meathead's book on Amazon.

                  Based on the recipes and info from this site I am curing a 6 lb corned beef brisket which will be smoked to make Meathead's Katz Deli pastrami.

                  Today I "deep cleaned" my Cypress Grill and replaced the gasket - I found some cracks in the base but they are not structurally significant so I should be able to enjoy a few more years with my Cypress Grill. The fire box, however, is now in 5 pieces - it went back together but is unstable. I will buy a BGE firebox as a replacement.

                  Happy New Year to everyone.

                    The pastrami from scratch is a great project! Enjoy!

                    See if you can connect with some great sauerkraut and a good swiss-style cheese, and make the Reubens (see the public side of the site, but use your pastrami, not just corned beef).

                    I have a sauerkraut crock that was given to me back in college by a grad student from Switzerland. I am starting 15 lbs. of sauerkraut tomorrow I made some pretty good Kimchi last spring, turned it into pulled pork egg rolls.
