    New from Chicagoland

    Just bough a Pit Barrel cooker and received it about a week ago, made a brisket the day it arrived
    , it was a little dry but I'm still learning. I will be making some baby back ribs on it for dinner this evening rubbed with Memphis Dust and cant wait to eat . This website has been a great resource and the forum even more so.

    Hope to be smoking meats for may years to come.

        Welcome to the Pit JD. Glad to have you here! Looking forward to some pictures of those ribs.


          Here are the ribs, the top two were rubbed with Memphis dust and then sauced with sweet baby rays bbq sauce. The bottom rack is the dry rub only.

          They were in the PBC for about 3.75 hours sauced at about 3.25 hours. they each weighed about 3.75 lbs per slab.

          Everyone seemed to love them, Can't wait to make something else.Click image for larger version

            Brisket looks beautiful! You could've fooled us!

          Welcome, JDuffy. I'm in neighboring Niles, but grew up in the Wrigley Field area, when it was just a normal, affordableneighborhood. Lots of Chicago faces in here these days. Nice....

          Good looking ribs. I haven't had the stones to try a brisket yet, as I'm kind of new. Brisket can be a tough one to master from what I've read. But that is next on the list, as I have conquered pork shoulders, salmon, meatloaf, ribs, bacon candy, and pork jerky.
