    Hiya from KC!

    Hi everyone. Figured with everything I learned from this site, supporting AR was the least I could do...

    About me - I live in the Kansas City metro area with my wife and two cats, I enjoy cooking (especially modern techniques - e.g. sous vide), eating, science, beer (currently learning homebrewing). Lately I've been into cooking Mexican food (especially Yucatecan).

    I'm not an experienced bbq'er (I'm not originally from KC), but am learning. This is a great site for that (thanks!)!
    Got a Slow n' Sear for my birthday and I made the last meal ribs last weekend and they were fantastic! Wife loved 'em too! Sprinkled some Memphis Dust on popcorn later too. I can't wait until my next chance for an extended smoke session (I'm thinking pork shoulder is up next)...

    Welcome and thanks for the support and congrats on the Slow 'n Sear. Smoked pork butt money muscle with that thing is out of this world.

    I plan to kick up more sous vide in the kitchen after the first of the year.

      Welcome. I lived in KC for 2 years in the early 80's. Lived down by the plaza, kind of behind the museum. I learned so much and joined the same . Compared to first meal ribs, shoulders are super easy and delicious.. I have a boston and a picnic on right now about 3/4 done.

                  Thanks everyone, it's good to be here!
                  It is indeed nice to be in KC, where I can pick-up BBQ supplies, fruitwood chunks etc from my local grocery store. Plus Arthur Bryant's.

                  I'm looking forward to expanding my knowledge (and probably waistline..)!

                    ​Welcome to The Pit Cory H.! Great to have you here. Also, welcome to the SnS club! Good food in your future! (And yes, unfortunately an expanded waistline just may come with the territory...unless you do that crazy thing called exercise like Pit Boss does.) Nice job filling out your signature too.

                    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!

                    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.
