          Is there any way to download the book? Or if a member to get the Kindle version free? It is very awkward in my macbook. I do have a kindle app on my mac and ebooks format much better with it.

            Is it possible to download a copy of the flipbook? Or the files in compressed format? I've got a reader. Not a big fan of big tech and avoid it if at all possible. Thanks

              No. I'd suggest bookmarking it in your phone, tablet, or computer for easy retrieving.

            Hi, just a quick question or comment. I have just received moments ago the amazing ribs newsletter in which it is stated that a new ebook amazing made easy just came out and is available until June 27 th for free. How come I get the information today June 29th at around 8:00 pm for an offer that finished on June 27 th? It’s a bit sad I must say.

              Hi Huskee,

              After reviewing my inbox indeed I have received the hot from the pits on the 26th Tx. I did not received the smoke signals and have not ever received when searching my inbox. Possible I may not be on the list. Tx

              Alas, we emailed the announcement of the Amazon 5 free days offer to you with 4 days left and again with 3 days left. Our system automatically re-sends emails to people who didn't open the original 4 days after the original was mailed. Sounds like that was the one you opened. Apologies, but Amazon controls the sale.

                    Thank you for sharing it for free. I mostly liked the Kansas City Classic Sause. I've never heard about this recipe before really, but it seems to be yummy. It wasn't easy to do that, there are lots of ingredients, but it worthed the time I've spent. Don't be afraid of difficult recipes, they usually are the tastiest. Liked it so much and going to try cooking Chinatown Char Siu Ribs. Not really sure about adding food coloring, it seems to be not healthy and natural but I will think about it. The only cons of this book I've found is that it has to yummy photos to look when you are hungry.

                      LOL! The hazards of food porn! You can skip the coloring. It is there because that is what they do in Chinatown although there is nothing unhealthy about it.

Some companies pay a finder's fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product.

                    If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                    slow n sear
                    The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

                    the good one grill
                    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.

                    Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                    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.

                    The Undisputed Champion!

                    The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

                    Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                    Grilla pellet smoker
                    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.

                    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                    PK 360 grill
                    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.

                    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                    kareubequ bbq smoker

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                    Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                    masterbuilt gas smoker
                    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                    NK-22-Ck Grill
                    Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                    Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
