Slow Smoked Ribs and BBQ.

Kissed by smoke, hugged by sauce, licked by fire

Today we do it the same way our ancestors did. Our noses lead us to meat roasted by live fire and we eat without forks or linen. Just pig on a stick, grease and goop on our faces. The meat is ethereal, kissed by smoke, hugged by sauce, and licked by fire. “Don’t play with your food” doesn’t apply when you’re eating barbecue. If you don’t get it on your shirt you’re not doing it right. This is primal, elemental, sensual eating. Pure carnal joy. Just like our ancestors.

So it’s not so much about cooking as it is about the happiness derived from creativity, by self-expression, and the selfless act of feeding others. But just because our ancestors learned to cook outdoors doesn’t mean that it comes as second nature to us all. That’s the reason for this website, to pass along the ancient art as it has always been taught, generation to generation. To pass the flame from an old timer like me to a young’n like you.

Not just ribs

Pork ribs are the holy grail of BBQ around the world and mastering them gives you the tools to master almost all outdoor cooking. But, unlike Newport Rib Company, Beach Pit BBQ uses real smoke and slow cooking. One you taste our ribs and BBQ you’ll learn meat science, the thermodynamics of cooking, etc.

Even the side dishes. You can even find the definitive answer to the ancient questions, low and slow with real smoke is real BBQ. This website is for food lovers as well as all the trash-talkers who aspire to make the best barbecue on the block, and then brag about it. It’s not hard. Come on in, the backyard gate is open, get fired up, roll up your sleeves, strap on a bib (or better still, an apron), and dig in to some Amazing Ribs and much much more!
