    Jeff from North Alabama Here

    My name is Jeff and I've been a software engineer for 22 years now. I've been living in North Alabama (Huntsville area) for 20 plus years now.

    I enjoy BBQ and finally decided to learn to cook it myself. I bought a Weber and made my way here.
    I'm a novice but I'm learning a lot from Amazing Ribs!

    So, I've got a Weber Gold, Smokenator, and a Maverick ET 733 to get started with. I also have a cheap instant read thermometer.

    My favorite restaurants locally are Chris Lilly's Big Bob Gibson in Decatur for Ribs and Chuckwagon BBQ in Madison, AL for Brisket.

    Jeff, Welcome to The Pit! You nailed the sig, thanks for that. I'm originally from Alabama, but haven't lived there since about the time you moved there. A little town called Clanton in the center of the state. Welcome again to the forum and we look forward to hearing more from you!


      Jeff, welcome! This place is great. Question for you, your avatar looks familiar ... By chance do you use 3D Software? Modo maybe? Trying to imagine where I have seen your avatar before. Jim


        David - Thanks for the welcome! I've been to the Peach Park in Clanton a few times driving south.

        Jim - Thanks for the welcome! I've used this avatar all over. I don't think it would be 3D Software but who knows?

          LOVE the Peach Park. Just between you and me, though, I'm not much of a peach fan and usually get their blueberry cobbler.


            WELCOME WJ


              Thanks Jon!

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!

              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 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 Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.
