  1. Hey! I'm (ro13bit) Brian and I am a new member. I recently received a Brinkman gas grill - charcoal grill/smoker combination for my anniversary. I am VERY confident with the gas grill - even my new one (although I am still learning it's hot spots and tendencies) I did OK with my first couple of charcoal attempts. So, smoking is what I really want to get into. I am starting today with a small pork loin roast. My greatest worry is temperature control. I also have concerns about wet smoke vs. dry smoke. So, I look forward to seeing the different techniques and getting input on how to improve. Some recipes and rubs would be great too! 

    My favorite BBQ place in FW is Coopers but my favorite overall is the Germantown Commissary in Memphis, TN.

    Brian-- I love Ft. Worth & greatly prefer it to Dallas (I live in Frisco), but if you want to find some great bbq in the metroplex, you have got to check out Pecan Lodge in the Dallas Farmers Market, Mike Anderson's over near UT Southwestern Medical Center, Off the Bone right down the street from Gilley's & Hard 8 in Coppell. I've never been to Cooper's in FW but was disappointed by their New Braunfels location. I hear Lockhart's in Oak Cliff is pretty amazing.
