    Greetings fellow carnivores (and Herbivores)


    I am an Aussie ex-pat living in the USA. I've come to learn that BBQ in the states is not what I grew up with in Australia. My dad grilled meats over a wood fire and later over an open gas grill. It is much more fun doing it low and slow (I can drink more beer) and the result is tastier. (For the record, my dad never, ever threw a prawn (aka shrimp) on the barbie. We always ate 'em cold as do most Aussies.)

    I have over the years acquired a Weber Summit s-670 natural gas grill, an old Charbroil elevator type charcoal grill and most recently a Weber 18.5 smokey mountain smoker.

    I love the gas grill for its simplicity and I can crank it up to over 700 to sear my steaks and quickly burn the gunk off all my grill plates. I also use it extensively as a second oven. Throwing chunks of wood onto the burners or in the side burner box helps impart some smoke flavor.

    The only time I use my old charcoal grill is when I need the extra surface area for a big gathering.

    My new found joy is the baby of them all; the smokey mountain. It has allowed me to fool proof my pork ribs and pulled pork from the tested recipes.

    A big shout out and thank you to MeatHead and the rest of the Amazing Ribs crew. I have learnt an awful lot from y'all. As a result I have been able to kick my cooking up a notch or two.


    Greetings HappyBloke! 'Shrimp on the barbie' stereotype BUSTED! Glad to have you here.

We look forward to hearing more from you! Enjoy!


      Great to have you. I love me some shrimp.

      Jamie Foxx got busted for stealing shrimp in a movie, he was quick to correct people and let them know they were actually prawns.

        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!

        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.

        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 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.
