    Pitmasterron intro

    Hey folks. Don't let my handle fool you I am no "Pit Master" that is just wishful thinking. I am totally here to learn.
    I am a 57 year old retired Staff Sergeant from the Toronto Canada Police Service. I retired 8 years ago and joined forces with my long time best friend to open a private Investigation Firm www.isninc.ca. My wife and I have a home on the water in Ontario (Paradise 1) and a beautiful condo in Placidia Florida (Paradise 2).
    I got interested in BBQing about 4 years ago when my 24 year old daughter asked me spend the weekend with her and 4 girlfriends and be their cook. I wanted to BBQ them the most amazing ribs ever. So I Googled "amazing ribs" and the rest, as they say, is history.
    I love site but in particular the educational value.
    Thank you for the welcome.
    Kind regards

              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.

              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’.
