    Hello from Connecticut

    Hello everybody, I'm Duff from Connecticut. I've been backyard grilling for many years but started getting serious about a year ago after purchasing a Rec Tec pellet smoker. I purchased the Rec Tec based entirely on the review on AmazingRibs.com and have been coming back ever since to learn how to cook on it! I've cooked pork butt, beef brisket, turkey, prime rib and some other things that I can't think of, but amazingly enough have yet to try ribs. Regardless of that, beef brisket is my hands-down favorite meat to eat and my goal here is to master smoking it. I look forward to the Pitmaster Club!

        Hi Duff, Greetings from Houston Alaska. We don't do ribs often either. If we did, we would weigh 9000 pounds! We do a lot of fowl, and love it! As far as brisket, there are many here that bring brisket to a high art. If you can do pork butt, then ribs should be no big deal. Search around for brisket techniques, and watch the wonderfulness ensue.

          Hey Duff. I'm in Darien. I have plenty right now, but if you're ever in the market for one of those bulk pellet purchases send me a note, if we can scrounge up a few others around here it might make sense.

                  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.

                  Groundbreaking Hybrid Thermometer!

                  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 Infrared†Zone


                  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.
