    Hello from Southern Oregon

    Hello from Southern Oregon. I am pretty new to AmazingRibs, but have been BBQ'ing for awhile. I have 2 old Weber BBQ's. One, the older(20+ years) has been converted to a smoker with a pitmasterIQ analog smoke unit and the other is used for grilling. I have a gas grill(Weber Silver) that is 25 years old. Lastly I have a Homemade(Local FFA High School welding class) Off-Set smoker. I live on a ranch and we raise our own Red Angus Beef and Hampshire/Suffolk Meat lambs. I hope to learn more about smoking, especially different pieces of meat as we get a variety of cuts when you have the local butcher shop cut & wrap your own animals.Lastly I just got a Thermoworks Smoke temperature probe for Christmas 2019, and that has been a real eye-opener on actual temps in each of my BBQ's and Smokers.
    I always enjoy BBQ, especially any new roadside grill that I can find. I get to travel quite a bit and lie to seek out BBQ joints in small towns from Northern WA down to about Bakersfield CA and east to Idaho and Utah.
    Today I just brined and seasoned up a Chuck shoulder Blade roast that I plan to smoke up tomorrow. Any suggestions are always appreciated!

      Welcome! You are close to Mike. When the southern wind blows north and you think your neighbor is BBQ’ing it isn’t. It’s Mike.

      I think what tbob4 is trying to say is that I tend to blow a lot of smoke up people's......well, you get the drift....

    I think I'm currently from Greater Idaho

                    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.

                    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.

                    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.
