    Greetings from up north (Alain Tremblay)

    I've been meaning to support the site for a while, so here it is! I'm from Quebec City, Canada where we like grilling and BBQ even more since the season is so short (although we do grill in the winter, it is a pain in the butt).

    I discovered "low-n-slow" BBQ during my many travels to the state, Being a scientist (chemist), the "cooking wisdoms" people repeat but are counter intuitive for a scientist always bothered me. Meathead and his team approach cooking with the only real method that works: test your hypothesis, measure and get the truth!

    Thanks for the site, keep up the good work and bon apétit!

    Alain Tremblay

    Greetings Alain! Thank you for the support. We are all fans of science, as you mention testing and repeating and measuring is the only real way to do it. You just can't make a bad meal when you do things properly, especially BBQ where bad or at the very least less productive information is so widespread!

    When you get a minute, head over to Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, and check it out as well as the tips posts in that channel. These will help you set up your signature as well as learn the best way to post some nice big bragging pictures for all of us to enjoy. Looking forward to hearing more from you!


      Great to have you Al, and thanks for the support?

      You speak Quebecois? I only remember the cuss words and a few other nouns, with respect to Cajun french.


        Good morning AT, Welcome!


          Thanks for the warm welcome! Of course I can speak (and write) Québécois! We do have a relatively high tolerance to profanity and swearing (we're soft rebels at heart)...

          Anyway, doing a whole brisket next week and I'll try it with Meathead's recipe for the first time and I'll try to take pictures for you guys. I'm serving this to our now-obligatory office fall BBQ (I did it once and now they won't let me stop).


            Cool.......keep us posted. My dad speaks french.


              Welcome mon ami !

              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

              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

              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.
