Maiden Voyage - Pit Barrel Cooker...
Hello all you BBQ brothers and sisters..this is my first post as I just joined this site a few days ago.
I wanted to share my VERY FIRST smoking experience with all of you. I took the plunge on a Pit Barrel Cooker last week and decided to "break my smokin' cherry" on Independence Day with a crowd of about 12 adults and a few little ones. I know...ballsy huh? LOL
Anyway, St. Louis Style Spare Ribs (4 racks) and whole Chickens (2), were on the menu.
Here is the synopsis of the event...
Ribs...Perfect (see photo)
Chicken..."The best chicken I have ever had...no ****", direct quote from a southern gal from Georgia.
Total cook time 4 hours (Put the chicken on at the 2 hour mark to finish around the same time as ribs). I can say that this cooker lived up to the good things I read on this site as well as others. and I want to send a personal shout out to my boss who told me to check it out before buying anything.
I welcome you thoughts and comments...til next time.
