    Whatsup from Ontario, NY (Near Rochester)

    Hello everybody! My name is Adam and I have been BBQ'ing for about 2 years now. I have cooked on a gas grill for ages at least 20 years now and own a fine Weber Spirit 300. Its great for quick stuff like burgers and chicken breasts. I was at my Aunt's house a few years ago and she was displaying her new BGE. After eating the food I decided I must have a Kamado! After research I purchased a Primo Oval JR and it has been my prize possession for 2 years now. I Love my Primo! I will eventually purchase an Oval XL to complete my set.

    I typically BBQ a couple times a week Rain/Snow/Shine. I have done great pork, brisket, chickens, cornish hens, chicken bombs, ATB's, Tri-Tips, fatties, etc. But my one challenge has always been Ribs. Sometimes they are amazing, other times So-So. I just can't seem to find the magic spot.

    Luckily the Dinosaur BBQ is not far if I ever need a quick fix. Especially in the cold WNY winters.

    My best bud owns a WSM and I have cooked on that a few times also. I highly recommend Bill Gillespie's Book "Secrets to Cooking on the WSM". It has a number of great recipes that translate across any type of cooker.

    Well just wanted to say hi and let anyone know if they questions about the Primo's or Kamado's feel free to ask. I have scientifically researched all of them (literally).

    Get it on!

                  Welcome to the Pit adamjmain ...👍

                  Its always nice to have another kamado cooker in the Pit.

                  A while back there was a group of us Kamado cookers under the direction of a Pit Member, CeramicChef , that tried to compile a collection of valuable information for new Kamado owners that would give them a kick start on how to use their new cooker properly right from the start. We felt that that just needed to be done, mostly because no other website had properly organized that information for a completely uninformed newbie to get a guick easy start.

                  Feel free to review those threads and add anything to them that you think we missed. That project is a never ending open source idea and anyone can contribute to it if they feel they have helpful information to add.

                  There might be some interesting information there you've never thought of too.👍

                              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.

                              Groundbreaking Hybrid Thermometer!

                              Thermapen One Instant Read Thermometer

                              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’.

                              GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone

                              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.
