    ThermoPop Tale

    Did anyone else see the ThermoPop review on Amazon from the guy who stuck the ThermoPop in the turkey then stuck turkey in oven? Of course it melted, then exploded, ruining the turkey (and probably the oven). He claims there was no warning on box that this was NOT oven safe and Amazon is at fault for selling such inferior products! Are some really this stupid or is this just a ploy for a big buck lawsuit?? Unreal

    I thought that was the point of it being called and instant read. Yes, some people are dumb, but it's not their fault it's always someone else's isn't it. Like people suing tobacco companies when they get lung cancer...

      These are the same scientists that try to use a product for some purpose it is not intended for, and then give it a bad review.

      So, just for the record, I sue people for a living and we probably should agree to disagree about most of these issues, but I will say that, yes, some people really are that dumb. And it often IS their own fault, but not always. OK. I hope to never speak on these issues here again. I like being here too much to risk being thrown off. :-)

      @ DEW, we understand. Different perspectives are what make us tick. We'll let you stay, even if you are a lawyer. (Lol, meant with only respect and fun!)

    Ya know, thinking back, we've had some fairly off the wall executions of MH's recipes. No one in The Pit, mind you, but there have been some interesting comments on the main site.

      I like the ones where people go: 'I made your [insert recipe here] except I didn't use the chili powder, or the beef stock, and i doubled the sugar, and I didn't have time to marinate it like you say, and i couldn't get my grill up to temp, and my family hates salt so i left it out and it tasted TERRIBLE, you really shouldn't put recipes on here until you test them'

      or

      'I don't have a grill or an oven, but I volunteered to cook thirty six briskets for little league. How would I do them on the engine of my truck?'

      You get the idea. Sometimes dumb seems contagious.

    Those all sound terribly familiar...

      While I usually read reviews or recommendations for products I plan to purchase, especially from this site, I intensely dislike recipe reviews because as Huskee points out, they didn't review THE RECIPE. But then, these are probably the same people who want to sue the scooter or roller skate companies 'cuz their kid crashed and skinned a knee. But he was wearing a HELMET! We need to let kids be kids again and learn from their own mistakes. Somehow my sister and I survived swimming in ditch water with water skippers, (the big river was off limits until we were older), climbing the hills, playing in caves, knowing rattlesnakes were around, bringing home coyote pups, riding neighbors loose horses bareback playing cowboy, not coming home 'til dark or we heard Mom call. Doubt my folks ever thought any wreck we ever had was anyone's fault but our own.

        Remember what Ron White says folks: You just can't fix stupid. A co-worker of mine has another one: you just can't coach that kind of talent. I just wish that all those times I spilled HOT coffee on myself going down the road that I would have known it wasn't MY fault! It was those nasty folks that sold me the coffee. I could have been rich....alas, now they warn you it's hot.....oh well.....

        When watching a slow motion train wreak or circular firing squad (usually just after the train wreak) at work, I just think to myself, "Not my circus. Not my monkeys."

        Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

        A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

        Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
