    New Pit Member

    Long time reader of Amazing Ribs, KCBS Table Captain and Judge working on Master. Not a competitor, but friends with a number of comp teams. Worked my way from Webber charcoal grills, to building a UDS a couple years back. Have a Rec Tec pellet coming in May. Lot of week night grilling on my natural gas grille as well.

    Live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the Air Quality Management District is threatening to make it illegal to grill, bbq, or smoke on "Spare the Air" Days.

    Looking forward to seeing what the Pitmaster club is all about and improving on my skills.


    Welcome! I joined in February and have already received a bunch of advice on various issues from other pit members. This is a friendly place.


      Welcome to The Pit abscam ! Sounds like you have plenty of experience in good BBQ. We have a "Show us your turn-in boxes" thread, maybe you can visit as we get more submissions, all for fun.

      Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

      Hope to hear & see more from you!


        Welcome abscam! We're glad you're here.


          Welcome, sorry about California. Really would like to have a Rec Tec.


            Welcome to the Pit. You will love it.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. 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. Click here for our review of this superb smoker.

            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, placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side. Click here to read our complete review.
