    Lurked a week, then just had to sign up. Hello from Canada, eh!

    Greetings to all the members new and old. I've probably read some of your posts in the past week and i liked it so much I had to cancel the 30 day trial and get a membership instead. I'm not new to BBQ but I have not taken it seriously until recently. The turning point was two weeks ago when I over cooked an expensive full leg of lamb on my kettle. That led to checking out thermometer reviews on AR and then getting the 30 day trial and reading up thermometers, the different brands, then controllers and fans and ultimately buying a FB 2.

    Welcome from the California Delta. Be afraid; it is a rabbit hole, a fun/delicious one but a hole none the less.

                          Welcome Big Mack! Glad to have ya on board. I did the same thing almost a year ago when I joined. I think I lasted a week on my free trial, then said, screw it, I'm joining. They’ve been trying to get rid of me ever since. They even offered to double my refund money.

                            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! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs

                            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.

                            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.

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.

                            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.
