    Moe Am I

    Heya, Pitmasters,

    My name is Moe. I'm in Portland, Oregon, smack dab on the Left Coast.

    I'm a Danish/German ex-pat and I dabble in a lot of cuisines. I mean I am pretty serious in my ways, but I don't want to get hoity-toity or anything.

    I owe a lot to Meathead and his efforts, and the cash I threw at him to be able to make this post barely seems like just dues. I'm getting merged to a red-headed wonder next May, and without this website, we wouldn't have chosen a pig-pickin' at our reception, let alone known what to taste for while vetting a caterer's pulled pork. The recipes didn't hurt in getting the ring on her finger, either. I cop to it.

    I would love to say a lot more, but a great man once wrote "a beginning is a very delicate time" and I am not doing that justice at all. I guess I am not the indoor-voice type.


    (Sorry if I used Latin like a shop broom just there.)

    EDIT: Oh I just had to add that I like to make the woman a breakfast of fresh pita bread with za'atar and labne in the morning, but my preferred breakfast is in my icon: a dram of Old Danish with havarti on rygbrod, followed by another dram. And then another dram. And maybe one more...


    Expandi manus meas tota itidem bonum, quod ad vos!

      Only Latin I know is Semper Fidelis, and Veritas and Aeuqtias from Boondock Saints.

      Oh and you reminded me of my buddy who demanded I visit his town of Coos Bay, I never have been though...

              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.

              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 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.

              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.
