    Central Texas BBQ'in

    Howdy folks. Nice to join y'all. I'm really interested in expanding my BBQ repertoire. Oddly enough, pork ribs are one of the few things that I'm not a big fan of :-)

    I feed a big family. Have 7 people in my house, including 4 hungry teenagers. I love cooking for my kids coaches and teams as well as our friends and neighbors.

    I've got several cookers. My workhorse is my Traeger Texas Elite 34. I smoke and do a lot of grilling on it. I've got a Pit Boss 24" Kamado that I'm looking to do more pizza on, a Weber 22" kettle that I get out occasionally, a big gas grill that mostly sits idle, and a Mexican grill where the top is a Santa Maria Style and the bottom is like a Caja China box cooker (or Cajun microwave). It's fun for cooking a lot of stuff. I've also got an infrared cooker that I've used as an oilless fryer, it's great for big hunks of meat. My newest toy is a 36" Blackstone griddle which I've made hundreds of pancakes and smash burgers on.

    My go-to cooks are brisket, beef ribs, and pulled pork. Recently cooked the Cornell Chicken recipe (and other than not halving the recipe) it was fantastic. Would really like to get into cold smoking to make bacon, but need to get a setup for that.

    Look forward to learning from y'all. - Heath

                      Welcome to The Pit. Try smokin' a chuck roast, (OK - maybe two or three with 7 mouths to feed. )They cook like a butt, but normally need to go a bit higher in them to be probe tender and shredable.

                        I'm working on the best way to sous vide and smoke those, a lot more manageable than a brisket.

                        the good one grill
                        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.

                        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                        PK 360 grill
                        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 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

                        masterbuilt gas 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'.

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        NK-22-Ck Grill
                        Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
