    Hello from North Texas

    South Texas Native here where the Mexican food is amazing but the BBQ is burned. I've since moved to DFW where the opposite is true. I got a WSM for fathers day last year and after intensive reading of this site I've been wowing my friends and family and becoming all the Texan I can be.

    I've smoked:
    Pork Butts
    and Prime Rib

    all thanks to Meathead. So there was no way I couldn't sign up for this. Looking forward to learning more from all of you!

    Welcome to The Pit BeardBQ. We're gonna need to shorten that. It's awkward to type. BBQ isn't a name though. Hmmmm. Anyway, thanks for filling out your signature, which probably means you've seen the Welcome Letter as well

    Have you been to the BBQ restaurants Pecan Lodge or Lockhart Smokehouse? They are in Dallas and both make awesome brisket. I'll give a slight nudge to Pecan Lodge but I'd gladly recommend either to anyone wanting good Texas style brisket. If you've been to them we'd love to hear your thoughts on them in the BBQ restaurant channel.

      Hi Pit Boss,
      I have been to Lockhart, many times, and its very good and very popular. They open at 11am and the lines forms before then. Luckily for me they have two locations now so one is just down the street from my work.

      I know that Pecan Lodge just opened a full location in deep elum and I plan to make a trip down to try it. I'll go to the BBQ Restaurant channel and post some pictures/reviews.


        Yes the Deep Elum location is where we went. The line was LONG. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Thanks in advance for the pics and review!

        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’.

        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.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
