    Hi i'm M, and I am a pellet smoker!!!!

    My name's M and i'm introducing myself to the community here. 31 years old with 0 grilling experience (until now). My journey started when I told my GF that I didn't know how to grill and she responded "you're not a real man if you don't know how to grill." Harsh right? Anyhow that very night I got on YouTube and never looked back. I was "taught" by watching Malcom Reed's HOWTOBBQRIGHT, Chef Tom of ATBBQ, and Harry Soo of SLAPYODADDY BBQ. I literally watched EVERY video they made before finally deciding to pull the trigger. I originally decided on a Traeger Pro Series 34, but after lurking in reviews and BBQ forums, it seemed their grills aren't what they use to be. So after some research I settled on the Rec Tec 590. Was attracted by the PID and the sq ft. Got within a week of purchasing and decided I didn't like the founder or the way the grill looked (cheesy horns). I know that's petty but hey, it was my first grill purchase and I wanted to like it. Spent about 3 weeks looking around and visiting forums and finally settled on the Grilla Grills Silverbac Alpha. Came in last week and did my very first cook over the weekend. A 15 pound brisket from Porter Road, a Kosmo Q injection, and a combo of Kosmo Q and Oakridge BBQ rubs. Brisket turned out AMAZING! Looking forward to learning from you guys as I truly want to become a student of bbq. Thank you in advance!

    The pics above were taken 30 mins after slicing so the slices dried out after being left out. But the brisket was full of moisture.
