    Hello from Colorado

    Morning everyone.

    I'm DevHyfes and I live in Colorado right near Berthoud/Loveland. I am an avid cook (indoor and out) who has been using Amazing Ribs for years as a go-to reference for my meat cooking. I started really cooking back in 2001 when I was laid off right before 9/11 and found myself looking for something to do while the job market figured out what it was going to do. I spent 4 months watching cooking shows and making my wife's co-workers jealous.

    Today, my weapon of choice is a Weber kettle grill, with smokenator that replaced my trusty electric smoker after one of our ubiquitous wind storms last year.

    As I type, the grill is heating up ready to take a slab of pork spare-ribs. As I checked this site to confirm my recipe, I saw the membership drive and decided I might as well help. Later in the week I have two giant porterhouses. I have found the board sauces on this site to be a fabulous extension to my steak-making.

    Anyway everyone have a great day. Any day with ribs is a great day, I suppose.

      Welcome to The Pit DevHyfes! I had some friends who lived in CO for years, and I remember about 10 yrs ago them telling us how tough things were out there. They've since moved to OH. I thought it such a shame that such beautiful countryside as CO was a tough place to live for the job market.

      Enjoy those ribs my friend! I have a feeling Pit Boss will want to see some pics of those porterhouses & board sauce, he may just be the biggest steak guy around these parts. If you want, check out my porterhouses I cooked this past winter. My biggest to date. You can see that post here.

      When you get a minute, check out Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, as well as the tips posts in that channel. These will help you navigate around The Pit, learn how to fill out your signature, and learn the best way to post pictures here. Enjoy!

          Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

          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


          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.

          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.

          Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


          Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

          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’.

          GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared†Zone


          GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
