    Hello from the Frying pan of Arizona

    Fid hear in Phoenix, for some reason here it is Aug. 6th 1:17pm and it's only 105 deg.F (cool Day) Must be a reward for joining Pitmaster.
    Anyway love AR and all the great stuff that goes along with it. I've BBQ'd for years and after hanging around AR for a few months I've learnd some new tricks and how to be consistent from one cook to the other.
    I cook mostly with Weber Kettles (3) and an older CharBroil gasser and strongly leaning toward a pellet smoker in the near future.
    Finally wised-up to digital thermometers (Thanks Meathead) I use a ThermoWorks MTC and a ThermoWorks TW8060, don't know how I ever got along without them or the Smokenator and GrillGrates.
    Looking forward to lots of fun here at Pitmaster.
    Fid.
    Ps My Favorite Beer Four Peaks IPA Tempe, Az. (one of them anyway)

    Welcome, nice Hereford. I took some black and white photos of my cows growing up. I like the rustic look. Also had a blue healer.

    We are 92 (105 HI) with 60% humidity. Back to cutting grass.

      Ok,Ok I'll stop crying about the temp in Phx. I'm guessing 12% humidity here.

      I shot that photo on a small ranch in Chino Valley, Az. Healers are great dogs.
      Thanks for the welcome.

    Not to brag but here in central MI today it was mostly sunny and 84 HI, currently 72. Beeeeutiful evening to be tending my Weber with some oak-grilled turkey burgers and a cold one in my hand.

      Yup, OK rub it in, we are lucky to get below 90 as a low temp, but hey better time are not to far away. (but for right now the A/c is running 24-7)

      I'm surprised it hasn't been a bad summer at all (in MI). Last summer we had our ACs running 24/7 for a few weeks for the most part. This year back in early to mid June I ran it for about 2 weeks. Haven't ran it in several weeks now! My electric bill is happier this summer. Makes up for the propane bill from the winter >

    Advantage of AZ is we BBQ with ease year round, in fact in the summer I find it easier to get to temp and hold it. I remember living in Minnesota and trying to BBQ in the winter.

      What a difference, Minnesota winters to AZ! Of all the states, including MI and ME, it seems MN makes the news most for bad winters. We hit -19 last winter here in MI, but the lowest I had the privilege of firing up the smoker in was -5.

      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.

    Dry heat... low humidity. I have co-workers in Phoenix and they tell me how hot it is. Still 96F here, but the dew point is nice at 56F. Welcome, Fid!
