    Suggestion for the First Annual Amazing Ribs Throw Down

    Mr. Meathead,

    I (not so) humbly submit that you should start an annual event to be known as the Amazing Ribs Throw Down (I'm sorry, I can't think of a smart-ass acronym for it) and hold it right here in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada.

    I further submit that that rules be such that everyone *must* use MMD for pork butts and ribs. That should be carried over to beef and chicken in that you should pick the single rub to be used for the meat in question. The competition organizers would provide the rub pre-made.

    This would make the competition boil down to be based purely on the pitmaster's skill at running her or his rig.

    I sure you can think of a few more restrictions, too, but I think this would be an interesting start.

    Jim

      Howdy! Glad to meet someone else here.

      As for the competition, we bring over a couple of Oscar's showgirls to distract the other cooks (or maybe some of the guys from Thunder From Down Under to distract the gals) and then we split the winnings after they burn their meat to a crisp.

    I don't live in Vegas so that's a HUGE trip for me....and I don't fly. (I'm thinking more like Chicago, I can drive there in 4 or 5 hrs, wink wink)

    But that's an awesome idea! AmazingRiobs BBQ Society. Let's do what KCBS doesn't do!

      What's a "Riob"? Is that anything like a "bi-atch"? Does it come from the same part of a pig that corresponds to where nuggets come from on a chicken? (Sorry, I'm in a particularly smart-ass mood after that TT.)

    It's perfectly ok Jim. I'm starting beer number two, so I'll be there too in a bit. And just because I like a good ragging, I'll leave the typo in place. Riobs are when you make ribs in style man, they become Ri-OBS!

      Given the skills of many judges I think it is not out of the question

      Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

      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.

      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
