    Mobydiq has arrived

    Hey fellow smokers and grillers. I've decided that in my advanced age I need some expert guidance in the world of smoking and grilling. I like to do most of my cooking on a rotisserie, which I think I'm pretty good at. I can do four slabs of ribs on my rib cage but have yet to figure out how to rotisserie soup. I've got an Oklahoma Joe that I've done a few mods to, it's pretty much air tight. I have an old BBQware grill that I keep rebuilding and all of my spinning on. I'm a tinkerer so I do a lot of experimenting with smokers and grills. That's part of the fun for me. I do remove the membrane, if that matters. I still have a lot to learn and will enjoy the journey.

    ​Welcome to The Pit Mobydiq! Let me guess, you named your smoker Cpt Ahab?
    Glad to have you here. I have zero experience in rotisserie, never interested me, but I love reading about things whether I intend to venture into them or not. Sous vide and bread baking are also in that vein for me.

    Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

    Also, it's very important that you add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list in case you are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner!

    Hope to hear & see more from you!

      "Sous vide and bread baking are also in that vein for me".

      Hmmm... I can see you're about to bake a loaf of bread.

      A couple of years ago Meathead said to me that he had a fear of flour. Now he's going to bread baking seminars. He made my Brioche hamburger bun recipe. I bet he will soon read my thread about Teaching Steve Vojtek how to make sourdough bread and make some real bread.

      I see you as future Bread Master.

      Breadhead of the 3 techniques I'd get into bread baking first. Maybe someday. Thanks for your confidence!

      For some strange reason MOST people think bread baking is very difficult. However... Everyone that takes the time to try it end up saying this is not nearly as difficult as I thought it was going to be. It's a forehead slapper once you realize how easy it is.

      Just use the the time you wonder what to do while you are smoking a pork butt or brisket for 15 to 18 hours.

      Here's an easy Ciabatta bread recipe with instructions you can make in 4 to 6 hours, depending on your ambient temperature.


      Use the direct method to learn with. Later you can use the indirect method and get a better loaf of bread.

      This is much, much easier than the type of bread Steve Vojtek and Chudzikb learned with.

          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!

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane 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

          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.

          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.

          Our Favorite Backyard 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.
