  1. Hello.  My name is Scott, and I am in Conway, Arkansas.  I moved here from Memphis about 7 years ago.

    I currently own a Weber and a Cookshack Amerique.  I just purchased (scheduled for delivery tomorrow!) a Fast Eddy's PG1000.  I have never owned a pellet grill, and can't wait to break it in all this long weekend.

    I have had a passion for BBQ and cooking for a long time.  I was on a competitive cooking team (Phantom of the Pigs) in a support role in the late 80's and early 90's.  Now I am mostly a weekend warrior that takes great pleasure in seeing my friends and family enjoy the smokey fruits of my labor.

    Anybody out there own a PG1000?  If so, any suggestions for getting started?  I want to keep my neighbors jealous all weekend long with the cooking I plan to do.  So far, I have ribs, burgers, chicken, and maybe a brisket that I plan to break my new toy in with.

    My side of Brangus that I purchased two months ago is finishing off now (grass only) and will be processed and dry aged starting on 6/5.  I don't have a lot of experience smoking beef, but I look forward to learning.

    I am always open for tips, and hope I can provide some insight for some people as well.

    Anybody have any tips for getting started with the PG1000?

    I'm looking forward to being a part of this tasty forum.  Thanks
