    1st post from Summerville, SC

    Amazing Ribs has been my go-to site for many years. Memphis Dust has been my rub of choice. Why change a good thing.

    I went from gas grills, to a Bradley Electric, Ugly Drum, several Weber's including a WSM.

    I now own a Yoder YS1500, YS640, and a 22.5 kettle.

    My Main cooker, except it is now chained to the patio!

                    Welcome to the Pit! I'm on my way home from my daughter's house in Columbia, SC. I get there about 3 times a year and try out BBQ joints. I like Stikey Fingers and recently discovered Firery Ron's on Sullivan's Island. What's your favorite joint?


                      The brother's sold out sticky Fingers, quality went down. There is a new place called swig and swine, have no been there yet, but the people involved ran a very high end store downtown Charleston.


                        SammyJ I stayed a few nights in Summerville back in probably 2003 or 4. Some good friends of ours moved there, his company transferred him, and we went for a visit. I remember it being so hot that I was begging them to turn the AC on! This was late June or early July if memory serves. My buddy drove semi delivering gasoline & butane to stations. Up here (MI) he drove for Liquid Transport, not sure if the co. was called that down there, or still is. Anyway, I sat in your DMV for hours as he had to get something renewed the day after we showed up so I went with him while our wives hung out. Then I rode with him while we made deliveries through town and even went to Myrtle Beach to make deliveries. Wasn't into BBQ then so never ate at any places near you. I remember having gator tail at Isle of the Palms though. It was awesome.

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 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.

                        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.

                        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’.

                        Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                        Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                        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.
