    Hello from West Central Minnesota

    Hello, I am a new member from west central MN. I have been a long-time griller, but in the last 2-3 years started getting into smoking/BBQ. I have had a weber kettle forever. I bought a Masterbuilt smoker 3+ years ago after eating ribs off my bros. in law's. I then transitioned to a SNS in my kettle. I have had a OK Joe's Bronco drum for a little over a year. Mainly wanted to get more rib capacity. I like the concept of hanging ribs and chicken. I am currently tinkering with making a UDS, in hopes of doing some smaller rib competitions soon. I am hoping to improve my rib game. Right now I am very comfortable with chx, pork butt and brisket. My ribs are not totally dialed in yet. I am sure my other stuff has a lot of room for improvement, too! Look forward to learning!

                            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!

                            Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                            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.

                            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.

                            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.
