    first post, first cook off

    Hi. My name is Raymond, I live in Bossier City. LA. I have been a member for two years .


    Just a few words about our adventures this weekend. My wife and I went to the Germanfest in Muenster, TX. Besides lots of beer and sausage there was a BBQ cook off sanctioned by the Lone Star Barbecue Society. As we were walking around looking at the different rigs I was asked if I was a judge. I said I was not, and the lady asked if I wanted to be. Trying to keep my enthusiasm down I said YES!

    Long story short, I got to judge brisket. There were 17 entries. All I might add were delicious. I had no idea what to expect. After reading the judging criteria i figured i would use how my brisket tastes and judge accordingly. To say the least i need to step up my game on brisket.

    I had a great time talking to the pit masters and checking out their rigs. This has made me even more determined to step up my game.

    Welcome to the posting side of the Pit. Glad you had that experience. If I got to judge so many different briskets it would definitely broaden my understanding of brisket preparation.

                    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.

                    Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                    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.

                    Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                    3 burner gas grill

                    The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                    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.
