    Hi from Richland, Washington

    Hey all,
    Just thought I'd introduce myself. Long time lurker and first time poster.
    First wanted to say this is a great site with great resources and has really helped out my BBQ skills. It's my first stop if I need any information.
    I've been BBQ'n and smoking meats for a few years now. I started with cheap, hand me down smokers but I made it work. Sometimes it was quite a bit more work than I'd like, but if you put out good food then who cares what it's cooked on? I now own a Pit Barrel Cooker and I friggin' love it and will be a life long customer and supporter of them.
    I just like to do this on the weekends, but have been doing A LOT more during this pandemic shut down lol. I'm the go to guy for in my friends and family for BBQ and that's awesome to me!
    I appreciate this forum and everyone's willingness to help and share information. I know some people like to keep secrets on recipes etc. but that's not what I'm about. Just like in Jiu-Jitsu I won't keep any secrets and will teach what I know. It just helps everyone get better.

    Welcome aboard from Virginia Beach.

        I totally agree. Those were touchy pits but I knew them well enough to turn out good food.

                    I'm guessing Jiu-Jitsu is of the Brazilian varietal?

                    Great choice for the cooker! Make sure you post gratuitous amounts of cooking pictures (both pre and post please)

                      You are correct with the Jiu-Jitsu guess. Been a black belt for about 2 years now

                          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.
