    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

      I'm from Bama myself (Clanton). I'm also an Auburn Grad. WAR EAGLE!

        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.

                  Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

                  maverick PT55 thermometer

                  A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

                  Click here for more info on the Maverick PT-55 Waterproof Instant-Read Thermometer Review shown above. It may be the best value in a thermometer out there


                  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.

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

                  the good one 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 Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  the good one grill

                  The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                  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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                  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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                  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.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  NK-22-Ck Grill

                  Their 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.

                  G&F Suede Welder's Gloves

                  If you're using oven mitts at the grill, it's time to trade up. Say hello to these suede welder's gloves. They're heat resistant enough to handle hot grill grates, and flexible enough to handle tongs. The extra long sleeves even let you reach deep into the firebox to move hot logs without getting burned.

                  GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

                  grill grates

                  GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and 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 to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

                  PK 360 grill

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                  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 much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado. Beautifully designed and completely portable. Meathead says it is his preferrred grill.

                  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.

                  Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

                  masterbuilt gas smoker

                  Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
