    It's a great site and a good life

    I used this site a lot, coming up an el-cheapo version of the Smokenator to get me started with a variety of your recipes. Then, I used your reviews to help me decide on a Cookshack Elite about a year ago.

    It seemed only fair to join and pay a little bit back for the wealth of info and the help in getting us started. This site has definitely changed our eating habits! :-)

    Welcome TW, I too use an el-cheapo smokenator occasionally. One I make from foil. Works! Let's hear some more about what you like to cook and what you hope to master, etc.

    When you get a minute check out Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, as well as the tips posts in that channel. These will help you learn your way around The Pit, as well as set up your signature (tip #1) with your equipment. 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.

    We look forward to hearing more from you! Enjoy!

          Nicely done Cliff, formatting & all! Love good red wine myself too.

          HINT: When you post photos, don't do it from your profile page or to an album. Just post them inside the appropriate threads, like this one for instance. For some reason when posted within profile pages or into albums they do not show to anyone.

            Huskee, Thanks for the tip! Yeah, I was surprised that my albums showed up under photo albums with no pictures attached. Then I noticed it was happening to everyone else, too. My $0.02 is that it seems like a bug that the folks supplying the software to you guys should fix.

              Yeah, there are a few bugs with this version of vBulletin and an update is around the corner for us. The IT guys are aware of them. Thanks for you feedback!

              Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

              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! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs


              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!

              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.

              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.

              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.
