About

Pitmaster's Log Book is the product I'd wished I'd had when I started barbecuing in 2003. Back then, I smoked a turkey on a charcoal grill and then, bitten by the barbecue bug, bought my first offset barbecue pit. Many of my early barbecue cooks were written down on college rule paper or, notepads with hand-drawn lines. The problem, I couldn't easily document and pass down my knowledge. My solution is the Pitmaster's Log Book.

Our initial funding goal is designed to cover the raw costs of the production process. It'll pay for the cover, the layout and design (done in house by Mike Hall), and the printing of the book. We have our printer lined up, and the costs specced out. If we hit our initial funding goal, Pitmaster's Barbecue Log Book will become a reality, with a projected publishing date of September 2018.

We hope you'll help us get there! Please help us spread the word about the campaign on social media using the hashtag #BBQbetter. We'd also love to hear stories of how the Barbecue Log Book will help you.

Out of love for his wife and the different styles of barbecue, Rob undertook a study of barbecue which, to date, spans 16 years. He first studied by interacting in an early online barbecue newsgroup and worked his way through a collection of carefully selected books. Staring his barbecue efforts on a charcoal grill, within a year he upgraded to an Oklahoma Joe brand offset barbecue pit. Angela says with a smile that, “over this time he has mastered brisket and I enjoy eating it.”     

Last November Angela was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme, a fatal brain cancer. She recently discontinued treatment as the cancer had worsened and the outlook from available treatments offered little in the way of a better quality of life. Doctors say she has about six months to live.  

As a creative refuge, Rob fused his love of Angela - and his study and practice of barbecue - in the form of Pitmaster’s Log Book a log book where both professional and weekend pitmasters can document and perfect their efforts.

Whether you have an off set barbecue pit, vertical smoker, pellet smoker, drum style smoker or, a grill the Pitmaster's Log Book is your one essential accessory.
