    David "Type2" from SWVA


    New to the overall smoking community, only been smoking for a couple of years now. Just getting heavy into the community in the last 6mos and looking to get into competitions and catering in the next few months.

    Love amazingribs as it has been a perfect resource.

    New website should be up by the end of the month http://www.type2bbq.com (ughh... so many things to do)


    Welcome aboard Type2! That doesn't have anything to do with Diabetes does it?
    On a serious note, take note of our upcoming seminars to help you on your road to competitive BBQ. And be sure to take us along for the ride with pics and posts in the Competition Barbecue channel on the main page. This will help all members in the future who search there looking for tips. We're all here to help one another.

    When you get a minute, check out Pit Boss' Welcome post on the main page, as well as the Tips post underneath that. That will help you in filling out your signature properly as well as uploading pictures. Enjoy!

      Actually, yes it does... I am making Gluten Free (wife is gluten, and soy allergic) and Diabetic friendly BBQ.... Been a rough road as gotta keep sugars down (mostly using stevia and honey) and gotta watch commercial spices as they contain anti-caking agents and fillers which are usually gluten heavy products.

      I will check out the seminars. Right now have been doing churches, and local festivals to get the word out. Really looking forward to trusted advice from users on this forum!


        Wow! That's great, very noble, very unique. My wife is GF too, she has celiac disease. We wish you the best! If you feel like sharing any of your recipes you're welcome to. The only caveat is Meathead et al wish to not cross the boundaries of health here as this is not the proper venue for that. But if you have anything you can share to help others please do Type2!


          Wow full celiac that is hard, my wife is not full celiac. I also agree this is not a health forum, but I am happy to share anything I can about how I am making my BBQ that is helpful to the community that does have issues. Heck, that is one of the reasons I am so passionate about this craft is helping those that have to watch what they eat enjoy the same things as others. Too many times having my wife be frustrated that she cannot eat something! It is the foodie in me.


            Yeah, she's well used to it and so am I, we've been together over 12 years. We eat lots of rice in place of noodles, she buys GF bread, bagels and pretzels (which are better than regular pretzels if I do say so) and has found a couple favorites that are tolerable, she found a GF baking mix called Pamela's that tastes exactly like regular flour for bread or pancakes, cookies, brownies etc. She eats pizza toppings on pizza night, or makes her own with GF crust. Modern science/chef ingenuity has made it so that those with that issue have choices now instead of just having to shun nearly everything. To some GF is just a diet fad, but there are those who truly are allergic. But, important in the BBQ world is meat, and she's not allergic to meat, or potatoes! Anyway, kudos to you and your pursuit!


              My wifes BIGGEST pet peave is the "fad" diet GF people....
              checkout the mixes from Betty Crocker they are some of the best we have found in a pre-mix style.
              The other brand that we found we love is Jules (http://www.julesglutenfree.com/) she really makes a great product and a great price.

                My wife's too! And thanks, I'll check them out.

                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.

                The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

                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’.

                Amazingribs.com temperature magnet

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.
