    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. 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.

                  A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

                  GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


                  GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                  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.

                  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.
