Howdy, Y'all.
Name's Charlie Kaiser. Living in Kingman, AZ. Grew up in VA, and remember the "Three Pigs Barbeque" in McLean, Va as one of the best I've ever eaten.
I've been a grillin' fan for a long time (Weber gas, Weber electric). For the past year or so I've been experimenting with smoking (bably backs, pork chops) on the weber gas grill and have had decent results, but the temps were WAY too hard to keep just right. Either too hot or too cold, especially in cooler weather. So a couple of weeks ago, I picked up a lightly used GOSM off Craigslist for $40.
Tried some pork chops and they came out nicely flavored but dry. I was messing around with my thermometers trying to make things work and it wasn't happening so I ordered the ET-73 as per forum recommendations. Got that yesterday. A couple of days ago I did some salmon fillets (frozen, prepackaged, not fresh; used bottled spices instead of fresh) and they came out passable. Nice flavor, decent sauce from the forum. I'll try again with fresh everything soon.

Now I have the ET-73 and was ready to try something bigger.
So yesterday I did a pork butt from the Meowey sticky forum recipe.
It came out GREAT. Still had trouble with smoke using the stock chip pan but will work on that.
I have a decent finishing sauce recipe that I'll post as well.

If anyone else knows Three Pigs in McLean, and might have a reasonable copy of their sauce, I'd love to see it!

Catch y'all in the forums.

Hello Charlie, and welcome to the SMF. Thanks for the nice introduction, makes it a little easier when we have to reply to a question that you might have. Do you get down to Bullhead much? I visit there about 3-4 times a year. It's all good my friend.

We get to BHC once in a while. They have a Lowe's and Sam's Club there. By the time it gets to be mid April or so, it's too hot to get down there. Any place that can be over 120ºF at 10:00 PM is just wrong... :-)
