    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.

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

                    Welcome from Portland, Oregon!

                    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

                      My hat is off to you; a black belt takes some serious commitment!

                          The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                          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.

                          Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                          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.

                          Grilla pellet smoker
                          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.

                          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.

                          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                          kareubequ bbq 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 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'.

                          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.
