    Greetings from Southern Maryland

    How do! Retired Naval Aircrew, now at Patuxent River Naval Air Station testing the P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft, the replacement for my P-3 Orion. Self taught griller/smoker, and got most of the smoking part wrong at first. Got hooked on cooking during Navy deployments where the mess hall hours never seemed to agree with the flight schedule. Watched Jeff Smith's 'Frugal Gourmet' and took it up a level, then Alton Brown's 'Good Eats' and haven't looked back. 'Amazing Ribs' is my go-to place for all thing's 'Q, and I always recommend it to anyone who will listen; just a class site. My weapon of choice these days is a Primo Jr.

    Anyhoo, Thanksgiving this year was a reverse sear prime rib roast in the oven, as I needed the drippings for Yorkshire pudding. Turned out exactly like I wanted it to, which is my favorite saying when done cooking (even if it isn't quite there).

    But this time it was spot on!

    Welcome and thanks for your service and support Ed!!!


      Welcome Ed! I trained many P-3 NFOs in my 9 years of service with the USAF. Welcome to the community.


        Right on Ed. My father in law's family is from the Salisbury / Ocean City area in Delmarva. Never seen so many chicken houses in my life! Welcome to the pit!


          Welcome Ed! Glad to have you aboard (pun might be intended). Thank you for the support!

          I have a welcome package for you, although it's more like homework: click here to see our new member instruction post.

          Hope to see and hear more from you!

            Small Navy/Air Force world! As Enlisted Sensor Operators with many flight hours, we would tease the new Officer Navigators, (I add the distinction in rank for the non-military folks) and tell them all they needed to do was get within 256 nautical miles of home, and radar could take it from there. Most took the tease in good humor.
            Thanks all for the warm welcome, and I'll do my homework very soon. Promise. Unless the dog eats it....


              Welcome, edinsomd! Hope you get as much out of this site as I am! And thank you, and David, and any other current or past service members, for your service!

              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

              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.

              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.

              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!

              Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

              3 burner gas grill

              The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
