New Guy From Texas

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, I am new to the forum. I live in Central Texas and smoke a lot of meat. I have been building pits for years. I just finished one that I had been wanting to build for a long time. It is a multipurpose “cooker” it has 30 square feet of cooking area and last week I broke it in by cooking 50 briskets and 100 lbs. of sausage for a birthday party. I built this pit so I can cook anything from pizza to an entire Christmas feast. I have a wood stove on one end supplying heat and smoke and I built an 8 foot propane burner in the middle to supply heat. I can cook with either wood or propane. The wood stove is great to cook beans or whatever while I am smoking meat. For briskets I like to smoke them for 4 to 5 hours then get my temperature up to 250 with the propane burner, I really hate babysitting a wood fire throughout an entire brisket cook. I also have swinging rods inside the pit that are for chickens, beef jerky and sausage. My cooker can also be used as a smokehouse.

We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.


If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per TulsaJeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!


If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
