    Hello from Brookfield (Chicagoland), IL

    My name is Jake and cooking has been a hobby of mine for about 10 years. Been grilling/smoking for about a year and half (finally have a backyard). Always looking to learn and improve my skills. I have a 22" Weber Kettle, a Weber Smokey Mountain, 24" Camp Chef gas smoker, and a Smokey Joe.

                            I know, I've actually seen your talk at the Library and have vague recollection of you doing a Demo in Tischler's Parking lot, I used to work there. Since you live in my 'hood, can I ask where you like to get your meat?

                          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.

                          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.

                          Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                          Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                          Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. 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.
