Not sure I'll ever call myself a 'Pit Master'
I've mastered several kinds of pits, but I haven't worked with a few enough to include myself in that category.
I've been helping or BBQing for more than 50 yrs. Some days I'm the Master, some days I come up a little short of perfection...
I've never been interested in entering a BBQ comp. but I enjoy watching others. I've stolen lots of great ideas watching others BBQ.
I can say the same thing about stealing ideas on BBQ Brethren.
I just can't take credit for stealing your ideas.
