    Houston Area Pit Members…..Mini MeatUp Coming Soon! Can You Make It?

    For all our Houston area Pit Members, we’re gonna be having a mini MeatUp for lunch soon at Tejas Chocolate Craftory in Tomball. (AKA Tejas Chocolate + BBQ) The date will be either Saturday July 17 or Saturday July 24. Which date will depend on which is best for most members who want to attend. We can firm up which day as we get closer. Troutman 58limited and myself will be attending and would like to meet our nearby friends here in The Pit.

    As some of you know, Tejas Chocolate Craftory was ranked #6 in the Texas Monthly Top 50 BBQ places. They are definitely a top notch choice for cue and their sides are also supposed to be killer as well. I haven’t eaten there yet, but can’t wait to try it. They open at 11:00 for BBQ.

    If you’d like to meet us there, let us know if you have a preference for which day, or let us know if you can do either date. Troutman has promised to give Tango lessons to anyone interested after lunch.


    EDIT: We’ll be meeting this Saturday July 17th. Meeting at 10-10:15 am.

    I think the only thing that beats the Troutman Tango is The Troutman Two-Step! Still working on my Hambone Shuffle, but dang that's stiff competition.

      He’s a lot more spry for his age than I thought he’d be! Remember in Rockdale when he spun me around and made me dip? I thought I was gonna bust my ass!

    Had to be those Arthur Murray dance lessons thrown in with a little Chubby Checker twisting. That and a swig or two of Gerotol and I’m good to go !!!

      Gawdammit, that's funny!!! I remember those old Arthur Murray books with all of the dance steps. But please don't say there's a Troutman Twist as well!!!

      Uncle Bob probably can’t make it. He’s still recuperating from Rockdale. Plus, he had to get new brakes for his walker.😉

      Troutman, gotta see if it fits the schedule, post up later. But then again I see that PJ and Loren might be gearing up to take advantage of the aged. They drink your bourbon (although PJ griped about not having it served in his sippy cup) and then stab ya in the back............punk kids.

      Lonnie Mac, listen man, you need to leave your little Bacliff cocoon 🥸 and meet us. I’ve got some tales from my riding days that’ll keep you in stitches. Not to mention the great Q we’ll share.

    Sounds more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

    I'm baffled by the name, what does chocolate have to do with barbecue?

      That confused me also too.
      Chocolate BBQ sauce?
      Chocolate Rub?
      Smoked Chocolate?

      They started out making chocolate products and expanded into BBQ. Sounds crazy, but read Texas Larry ‘s link below.

      Don't think I haven't noticed y'all aren't planning a central MI Meat-Up. What gives? Scared of a little mileage?

        The main reason we’re not planning a MeatUp in central Michigan is we’ve already eaten at Dickeys. 🥸

        Panhead John Yuck, I haven't even eaten at Dickeys

      That place is on my list of places to try, but I don’t think I’m up for standing outside in Houston for more the about 5min this time of year.

          I won't be makin' it, although I'd enjoy lunch with David and
          Steve (). I would appreciate it if you'd make the drive up here afterward with a "care package" so I could at least enjoy the grunts. TIA

        Panhead John I won’t be making this one, but I am more likely to make future ones since our daughter is moving to the Houston area.

          Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

          Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

          Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

          Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

          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.

          Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

          Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
          Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

          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.

          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!

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
