    Hello from central Iowa

    Been reading this site for a long time, and got a lot of helpful hints. I started with a water bath smoker, graduated up to an offset, now I'm part of the Pit Barrel club. Just cooked ribs and chicken this weekend, and I think this one is a keeper. Wow, is it easy.

    Anyway, joined the Pitmaster club, because of all the information I've gotten from this site. Thanks and keep up the good work!


    Welcome, the PBC is a fun little cooker. I drove through Iowa once for a wedding, it has just as much elevation and corn as they say.


      Welcome to the Pit!! Go Hawks!!

          Since this isn't your first post, perhaps you've already read our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. Good job on your signature.

          Also, it's very important that you add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list in case you are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner!

              I tried Google this AM to see how many Air Miles from Fargo, ND to Sydney AUS., they said I couldn't get there from here? Dan

            Ha ha, we're both quite late on saying hello to some of these folks. You're new here, but what's my excuse?
