What is a Pitmaster: Tips and Tricks to Step Up Your BBQ Game

Written by The Kitchen Hand on . Posted in food

My childhood is filled with images of lazy summer afternoons, with my dad hunched over a smoker and barbecuing any cut of meat he could get his hands on. His barbecues were always the best- juicy, savory, and tender, with the meat falling off the bone in just the right way. I don’t care if you’re Gordon Ramsay or Jamie Oliver- my Dad’s simply the best pitmaster in my world, hands down.

Best Wood For Smoking Brisket: How and What Type of Wood to Choose

A good brisket always has that smoked aroma that permeates deep inside the meat. Every bite is infused with flavor, and the meat is so soft and tender, with a very pleasing texture that makes you want to eat more and more. 

But it’s also important to note that brisket is a very tough cut of meat. After all, it’s from the pectorals of a cow- which are the main muscles that a cow uses to support its body. This makes brisket very hard to grill or smoke properly if you don’t know what you’re doing. You need to marinate and cook it as slowly as possible to break down the collagen in the meat, while ensuring that the meat doesn’t dry out from the long cooking times. 

Best Sausage Stuffer Reviews: Meat Stuffing Machines

I don’t hunt much myself, but I’m lucky to have friends and family who do. Every few months, I’ll come into possession of a few choice cuts of elk that I get to process however I want.

If I want to step beyond elk burgers and tacos, however, I have to break out my trusty sausage stuffer. I can grind meat and mix it with seasonings all I want, but there’s simply no easy way to replicate the powerful effects of a dedicated sausage stuffer machine. With my sausage stuffer all set up, I can make about 25 lbs of sausage an hour without too much work.

Glass top stoves are pretty. The smooth layer of glass on the top gives your kitchen a modern beauty that exudes class and elegance. But when you crack that glass with a heavy pan, all of that beauty goes out the window. Heat diffusers won’t protect your stove from harm altogether, but they will make it much harder for you to damage your glass top accidentally.
