    Greetings from Austin

    Retired now in Austin, Texas where this 2017 summer is just too dang hot. 20 years an ex-pat, mostly Thailand where I started a Meet-Up for Tex-Mex and BBQ. My “dream machine” there was a split 55-gallon barrel, modified side box – which was wonderful but before this website taught me that a Weber 22” is enough until cooking for more than a half-dozen people at once. Pretty much all of Bangkok smells wonderful at lunchtime from countless small grills used by street hawkers and everyone is burning wood lump charcoal. It’s mangrove wood which – there – is flavorful, consistent and dirt cheap. And smells simply amazing. Here, I stock up on Kingsford Blue at Wal-Mart. Currently playing with my Weber, Anova, FireBoard and Slow ‘N Sear to up my game to competition level, I’m already a grilling legend to my dogs. "Greetings from Austin" in Thai would be "Sawa'dee kap, y'all!"

            Welcome from Winnipeg. You have some great barbecue around Austin and I bet you picked up some interesting cooking tips in Thailand.

                            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.

                            Surely you know somebody who loves outdoor cooking who deserves a gift for the holidays, birthday, anniversary, or just for being wonderful. There he is, right in the mirror! Here are our selections of best ideas, all Platinum or Gold Medalists, listed by price.

                            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.
