    G'day from Texas

    I'm an Aussie ex-pat currently living in Dallas, TX after a brief spell in Colorado and 4 years in central PA. I have been an enthusiastic consumer of BBQ for years and I am just starting out on the production end of things. I still have my training wheels on (I use a Pit Barrel Cooker), but I have already turned out some awesome ribs and pork shoulders thanks to the techniques and recipes here. A good beef brisket still eludes me though.

    So thanks for having me and I am sure I will see you around the site.

    Welcome to the Pit


      Welcome. No worries about the brisket, it takes a few times to figure it out. One day it'll just happen.

      Or so I'm told.

      I'm still waiting.


        Welcome, brisket is a tough one, mostly because i'm harder on myself than anyone else is.


          Welcome Dirty. Brisket just takes practice, though I don't know anything about the PBC. Of course, there are so many good 'Cue places in and around Dallas, if I still lived there I'd probably eat out :-)


            Thanks guys!! I know what you mean about being your own worst critic, I wouldn't be mad if I paid for it, but I know I can get it better!

            There is certainly no shortage of barbeque joints around here. I have to keep trying trying it for "research" purposes.


              After awhile I bet you will have a wonderful way of speaking (part Texan part Aussie)
              Howdy and welcome to the real Pit.
