    Another from VA!

    My name is Scott and I live in southeast Virginia (Hampton, right outside Langley AFB). I grill or smoke almost every weekend year round and enjoy learning new ideas and better ways to do things. I try do to all the normal things from pork butts or ribs to brisket but really enjoy experimenting with recipes normally cooked inside (often from all over the world) and see how it goes. Most of the time it comes out at least ok but sometimes, my wife tries it and then gets up to see what left-overs are in the frig (well, I might be exaggerating just a little)! I look forward to new ideas and learning better ways to prepare meals.
    Hampton, VA

    Welcome fellow Virginian!


      Indeed, welcome from another Virginian - Leesburg (northern VA) here! A lot of recipes here, and we look forward to seeing yours, too!

        Keep on keeping on sarnott. I know I've had my share grilling experiments not go as planned. All you can do is try not to go over the same territory twice and use each fail as a learning experience. Welcome from the SC Lowcountry!


          Welcome Scott! I think your experience is quite familiar to many of us. Check out the recipes threads here, many folks have posted some great looking recipes with pics too.

          Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains lots of how-tos and please-dos! Hope to hear & see more from you.


            Welcome Scott! I've been to Langley a time or two. I forget why. We were hauling something, I'm sure (Prior C-130 Navigator). Can't wait to hear about some of those cooks that sends the wife to the fridge

              Dave, Ever spend any time at 7th ACCS (ABCCC) or in the AC community? I spent some time in the back of both of those and with Jackpot but mostly spent my time in E-3s and E-8s.

          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!

          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!

          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.

          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.
