    Crimedawg here

    Right now like the majority of folks here, I must have a day job. I am currently the VP of Manufacturing of a family owned sawmill/ forest products company in the Pacific Northwest. I am on the road a high percentage of the time and really miss my home, family, and Memphis Pro when I am gone. Don't get me wrong, I love my job and am very fortunate to work for such a great company, but when I am home, I love to cook! I have had a gasser for many years and my family and I have enjoyed some great meals off of it. About a month ago, I made the leap to pellet cooking, specifically purchasing the Memphis Pro. Since that time I have cooked chicken, pulled pork, brisket, ribs, squash, scalloped potatoes, nuts, poppers, mushrooms, to name a few. The majority of the recipes I used came from this great web site and many of the comments from many of you on how your cooks turned out. I love to learn and really enjoy reading the great recipes on this site and your comments and trying them myself. I had never cooked brisket until last weekend but have eaten some from different bbq joints and I have to say, if meat gets much better than the brisket that I made last weekend, I don't know how! It was unbelievable! My whole family said it was the best meat they had ever eaten and they have no problem telling me when my food stinks! Anyhow, the brisket recipe came from here and I want to be around folks that know what great food tastes like and are willing to share their secrets. Hello to all of you and thanks for participating on this great site. The photo attached was from the sunset that just happened from my place in Astoria Oregon. Beautiful! Almost as beautiful as that brisket I unwrapped last Sunday.... Wow! Crimedawg

    Welcome aboard Crimedawg! Glad you have had success with MH's recipes, especially the brisket. When done right it is a delicacy for sure.

      Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

      A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

      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. 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.

      Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

      Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
      Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

      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.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
