    Louisianan in Memphis


    Finally joined the Pitmasters!

    I’m JD originally from Farmerville, Louisiana, and I love LSU football. The LSU picture is from this years National Championship game in New Orleans.

    Met my wife, Katie, and moved to her city in 2005, Memphis. The barbecue in Memphis is good. So good that I actually know more about Memphis cooking than Louisiana cooking. Need to work on that. Anyway, that’s a picture of us at The Roosevelt in New Orleans this last Christmas.

    We have three kids (Nora, 6, and twin boys James and Simon, 5). Their favorite restaurant is Huey’s, a Memphis burger chain. Nora’s favorite food is baked beans and pulled pork. Simon likes the healthy green stuff. James only eats chicken tenders and club crackers.

    Have been running by backyard for eight years cooking off of a Weber propane and electric dorm fridge style smoker. Everything I’ve learned has been on AmazingRibs.com. Added a Primo to start using charcoal and for its versatility, figured I’d finally invest in you guys as part of that purchase. The picture is a pork butt from my first cook. I want a dedicated smoker next, been eyeing that KBQ, but happy to take my time and learn slowly.

    I have so many dumb questions to ask. Can’t wait to get to know y’all. Geaux Tigahs!

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.

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’.

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 beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

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.
