    Hi from DW

    Hi folks. I have to thank you for your fantastic site. I have already learned a lot from you. I love cooking and food. I used to make some fantastic smoked Turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas with my old Brinkman Cookin Cajun smoker back in the early 90s. Then I wrecked a few and quit doing it, staying in the kitchen instead. Got a Weber a few years back hoping to get back into it. However, temperature control, patience, and attention was a problem. Burnt a couple, served a couple medium rare, and decided to give it up. Messed up some ribs several ways on my gas grill (DCS); could never get the temperature below 300 degrees. After reading your site and other research bought a MAK 2 star. Doing my first ribs according to your recipe as I type. The MAK has impressed me with its temperature control and smoke smells good. Hopen2Bsmokin good.Thanks again for your awesome website. Surely one of the best on the web.
    Best regards,
    David

      Greetings H2BS! The best thing you can do to eliminate any further ruined meat is get yourself a good digital thermometer. A good fairly affordable one is the Maverick ET 732, many of us use one, they're lifesavers...and convenient too.

      When you get a minute, check out Pit Boss' Welcome channel on the main page and the Tips post too, it will help you fill out your signature as well as learn the best way to post pictures here. Enjoy!

        Welcome to The Pit David! You're going to love the Mak 2 Star. I have one myself with the wifi and two half upper racks. It's an awesome smoker.

              Thank you to everyone for your kind welcome and suggestions. I did update my signature. This site is one of the best on web on any subject. I had very good luck on my first rack of baby back ribs on my new MAK2. It was just a trial run, but everyone who tasted them were quite complimentary.

                Every time I hear someone mention WiFi on their smoker I think of this for some reason (maybe because you guys also talk to your equipment). Feel free to replace computer with BBQ.

                    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.

                    Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                    GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredáZone


                    GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                    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.

                    Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!
