            Welcome to The Pit! I can assure you that you will find all the help you want here! Always a someone here ready and willing to share advice, tips, tricks, and recipes. You mentioned specifically brisket. That is my favorite, too. Most important thing to know when starting out with brisket is that it is very temperamental and no two are the same. It takes several attempts to get your techniques down, but soon your successes will become repeatable. You can practice with chuck roasts. They cook very similar and are a little cheaper cut to practice on. Remember, as Aaron Franklin says, the only way to make good BBQ, is to make bad BBQ.

            Welcome again! Looking forward to hearing about your cooks!

                      Hello from NW Oregon.
                      I keep hearing there is good BBQ in Texas of the salt and pepper kind. Smoked some pork chops seasoned with S&P Texas-style. Pretty good. Leads me to believe there is some truth to that rumor of Texas BBQ.

                          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.

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


                          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.
