    Newbie from Pittsburgh, PA..

    Hi Everyone,

    Newbie in Pittsburgh, PA that just joined up. I started with a charcoal torpedo smoker about 3 years ago that I found cheap at an estate sale and was hooked instantly with how flavorful the meats were that came off of it. It was inefficient, and a pain in the butt to try to maintain temperature, but it was enough to set me on the path of BBQ and smoking.

    I upgraded two years ago to a Masterbuilt electric digital smoker and that made things so much easier to maintain temperature. It's the smaller model, so I find I do have to often separate the point and flat of a brisket so it will fit, but it's allowed me to continue to learn and improve.

    My basic items have been brisket, pork butt and ribs so far. I've been trying to formulate my own rubs to suit my taste for my ribs and have come close, but never quite hit the mark yet. Going to be doing several racks tomorrow and going to try Meathead's Memphis Dust on them tomorrow.

    Glad to be here and look forward to learning!

    Joe

            Welcome from Wilson County, Texas! You’re going to love the Memphis Dust on your ribs. (I usually lay down a light layer of SOG under it.)

                      Welcome to the Pitmaster Club!

                      Since you’re new, and if you haven't already done so, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

                      Also, it's very important that you:

                      Give us an email address you actually use. You can check the email we have on file for you by clicking your name in the upper-right, then User Settings, then the Account tab. It’s tied to your Pitmaster Club account as well as our payment processor, Stripe. Don’t worry though, you can change it by simply visitinghttps://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/pi...il-request.php

                      Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam! This is important so you can receive special deals we occasionally work out for our members, receive notices about your account, such as if you’re up for renewal or are ever drawn as our monthly Great Giveaway Monthly Sweepstakes winner, which is open to all paying USA members or those with a USA delivery address (we’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us)!

                      Keep the smoke rollin’

                        Welcome from California! I’m a big fan of Memphis Dust. I have a slightly modified version I use on ribs and shoulders. Trial and error are great learning tools, and you just joined a community of passionate cooks who love to share!

                              Thank you. Spent a quick weekend in Colorado 2 years ago. Ran from Denver up to Estes Park. Hands down, THE most beautiful scenery I've ever seen. Hope to get back there soon.
