    Hello from Alabama...War Eagle!

    My name is Jed and I was born and raised in Decatur, AL. Home of Big Bob Gibson BBQ and Chris Lilly. I've lived off white sauce since I was a kid and I had no idea it was an unusual sauce until I got older and started cooking. I've been smoking BBQ for several years now. I've been a pellet head so far but I'm getting the itch to branch out. Looking forward to learning even more from this site. Thanks

      I know I make damn good BBQ cause my 3 dogs have NEVER said no to it. (OTOH, my 13yr old says no to just about everything, except my ribs.)

      Welcome to The Pit Jed! Please take a moment to read my Welcome letter and Tips topics located here. Tip #1 will help you with filling out that Signature!

      Don't let Boftx scare you off. They only let him out for an hour a day so he's usually cranky when he's posting. LOL

        Hey! I'm only cranky when I don't have enough Scotch. Besides, I was only callin' it as I sees it.

            I have a wonderful assortment of temperature reading devices, like infrared, instant read, and stay in brands.... all are good and kept in calibration.

            I love beer guys... I can say I've tasted/sampled hundreds, maybe a thousand. I brew my own and love local Texas selections. Shiner has a wonderful selection of brews I like. There are many others in Texas worth putting to your lips. I drink what tastes good, no matter where it's brewed!

            I experiment with food on the grill/smoker and in the oven. I'm inspired with what I read. I love to show off with family & friends.

                Not sure why that picture posted upside down but if I was an Aggie I wouldn't have even been able to get a picture on here. I cooked those spare ribs with Rufus Teague rub and Blues Hog sauce. If I try to edit my signature on my Mac computer it won't let me type in the box and when I try on my iPhone I get an error message when I try to post. Any suggestions?

                Macs are known to have an issue with the edit signature field. If you send me your Signature I'll load it into your profile for you. Sorry for the inconvenience.

                  I hate to admit this, but I am using a Macbook Pro (not by choice!) because of work with OS X 10.9.4 and have not had any problems like what others have reported with the sig. You might want to see if it is related to a particular version of OS X. (I also use Safari to access this site, so I don't know if it might be browser related.)

                  It could definitely also be a browser dependence.

                  If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                  slow n sear
                  The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  the good one grill
                  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.

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  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.

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                  Grilla pellet smoker
                  We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                  PK 360 grill
                  The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  kareubequ bbq 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.

                  Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                  masterbuilt gas 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 Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
