If the Reality Show BBQ Pittmaster's inspired you to become a backyard BBQ Pittmaster... there are some things you should know.
Backyard BBQ Chefs cook on their own birthday, there are very few exceptions to this rule.
Real Foodies and Chefs will poke fun at you... and Pre-Reality Pittmaster's will poke fun at you.
Pork Ribs are a Meat Entree, not a desert. Very few people cook Trigg style Pork Ribs slathered with parkey and brown sugar. The old fashioned way is still preferred.

Myron Mixons Garbage can Smoker seen on the Craig Ferguson show is slightly overpriced at $400.. and cooking in a galvanized cooker is a bad idea. On the cheap, Alton Browns flower pot is an excellent choice. Or one of the Smokers at a hardware store, or home depot.
There are other smoke'able meats beyond Pulled Pork, Pork Ribs, Brisket and Chicken. Roast Beef and "Fred Flinstone Dinosaur bone un-sawed off Beef Short Ribs are my personal favorites. Home Cured Corned Beef, Pastrami, Butt Bacon, Canadian Bacon, Bacon and Sausage is also popular in the BBQ world.
