    Hello from PUYLLUP, WA

    I just joined the Pitmaster Club. My name's Bob, and I've been cooking with gas on a Holland Tradition for over 12 years. I've been happy with everything except for the inability to smoke, and sear. The Holland has a smoker tray for pellets, but they've never added any flavor. I can get asparagus tender, but not with a crisp outside. Did I just admit grilling asparagus? I decided to do some research on grills, and ended up amazingribs.com. I'm now a convert to charcoal, even though MeatHead cooks with both gas and charcoal. I ordered a The Good One Open Range from FireCraft last Sunday online. Tuesday I received confirmation of the order. I looked today and the order is still listed as pending. Has anyone dealt with FireCraft? How long after ordering does it usually take to get a grill?

    Hi Bob... Welcome! You may need to give them a call... wondering if they were out of stock or something.


      Welcome Bob! When you get a minute, check out the Welcome & Announcements channel, as well as the tips posts in that channel. These will help you learn your way around The Pit and set up your signature. There's also a post that explains the best way to post nice big pics here... we like to see bragging pictures of your equipment and your cooks. Keep us posted on that new grill!

              No need to shout Which pic would you like in your sig? I'll add it for you=)

            the top one is fine thank you


              Sent Firecraft an e-mail,and they said it was being direct from The Good One and that it was being mailed that day (Monday.) I looked all day yesterday and today. Nothing. Cancelled my order with FireCraft and ordered a Hasty Bake Gourmet from Amazon. I read one story of two dented HB's from them, but have my fingers crossed. I guess I'm anxious to get started cooking.

              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.

              Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

              Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

              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’.

              GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared†Zone

              GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
