Off Topic - Barbecue!
« on: August 11, 2003, 11:50:11 AM »
My other passion, aside from pizza, is barbecue!

Not "grilled" food... but slow-cooked (smoked) pork barbecue (ribs, butt, etc...)

I am toying with the idea of setting up another website and discussion forum for barbecue aficionados.

The only problem is that I only have a few good recipes and techniques (I use a Brinkmann All-In-One propane smoker with hickory chunks to smoke my pork butts for the 15 hours it takes)...

Do you think there'd be an interest for such a site?

Would anyone here be interested in helping me run such a site?

I've reserved the domain 'pitcooking.com' (http://www.pitcooking.com) so all I'd need is some content for the site. I can easily set up a discussion forum.

Comments?  ???



I've also reserved the names 'bbqpit.us' and 'pitmaster.org' but I'm not sure I like them as much as 'pitcooking.com'

Barbecue sites are always needed.  It is one my passions also.  I build a unique barbecue pit that is made of firebrick and is bolted together.  I had barbecue recipes on my web page but the tractor pushed them off temporally.

At the bottom of the page is a good link to BBQ FAQ.

Love Q.

Living in Texas I do a lot of beef as well as some chicken and plan to my first turkey breast this week.

Seems to be a Pizza / Q connection

Turkey breast are easy to dry out on a barbecue pit or smoker DKM.  Raise the temp to 350 and that will help.  A whole turkey or chicken are fantastic when cooked on a pit at 350.  Cook breast side down then halfway through flip it over.  No stuffing but do put a couple of celery leafy tops , a few slices of onions lemon or orange.

Randy... that turkey looks awesome!!  :o

I hate to admit it, but I've never had smoked turkey. I've only smoked pork butts, ribs, and brisket.

Have you ever tried a deep-fried turkey? Talk about a tender/juicy bird!

Rub turkey thoroughly with Louisiana Fish Fry Cajun Seasoning and let sit overnight. The next day deep-fry in peanut oil until done... awesome stuff!!

ditto the candy making site

I'm interested but that really is DH's department - if I act like I know anything about it, it will become my "job" - so I let him be the expert and I play dumb/impressed female.  Anyway, my  true interest is with an outdoor (& indoor) woodfired brick or adobe ovens for bread.

Outside of Q, I have cooked turkey about every way possible (including fire roasting).

I brine the turkey and chicken for at least 12 hours.  I typically do my chicken around 300 to 325. Some of moistest meat you’ve ever had.

Steve we the BBQ site  ;) ;D ;)

Steve I have never tried a fried turkey, but it sure seems popular.  DKM said he brines his birds, I did give that a try.
DKM do you rub your briskets?  I have only Q'ed two briskets, one was great and the other one not.

Rubs on briskets and ribs.  Brine the chicken and turkey.

The breast turned out pretty good.

Also I don't trim the briskets.

My pork butts I rub with mustard then salt and pepper,  I got some apple wood this year and love that with the hickory.  A storm went through last night so pecan should be readily available.
I never tried making candy.  What’s a good place to get started?

Saltwater taffy.

When I find my recipe I'll let you have it.

Haven't found any really good sites.

Ok, the site is up and I have a basic discussion forum set up on it.

I'll need help running the site!

DKM.... Randy.... volunteer?

I'll work on a color scheme for the forum... try to come up with a better logo... we'll need content for the main site!

Oh, and I reserved another domain name...

Bar-B-Cue.com

Whaddya think of that one? (I couldn't believe it wasn't taken!)

So, we now have the following to choose from:

pitcooking.com
bbqpit.us
pitmaster.org
bar-b-cue.com

Let's take this discussion over to the new forum. It ain't pretty, but it's working!

Well, the site needs to be more than just a discussion forum...

So, I'd need help with the content of the main site. I'd also need some help coming up with the forums in the discussion board, etc...
