    Hello from Cabo Rojo

    I live in the south west side of Puerto Rico. I'm new to BBQ, and I currently have a Weber 22" grill and a WSM 18".
    I've used the Smoker on baby back ribs, chicken and brisket. The ribs at first were dry but after reading the article in AmazingRibs site and using the texas crutch as indicated, the ribs are know moist and tender.

    I still have some problems with the brisket, any advice will be appreciated. I used high heat instead of low and slow.

    I am currently retired and worked for petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. I also served in the Army during Vietnam. I did not see action but was stationed at Germany when Russia invaded Czechoslovakia.

    Low and Slow for the brisket should get you what you are looking for

        Welcome and thanks for your service regardless. You can do brisket at higher temp, I should say it is possible, but it takes a lot of doing it low and slow to learn. 275 shouldn't be a problem.

            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!

            Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

            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.

            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.
