    New Member from KS

    Hello all! Amateur cooker of 20ish years from a small town south of Kansas City looking to learn how to really cook!! I was in search for a new gas grill when I stumbled upon amazingribs.com. Wow!! Much like other posts I have read, I became hooked and cannot stop reading! I have learned more over the last few days about cooking, smoking, grilling, meat, temps, etc. then I have ever known. I thought I better give back to such a tremendous resource for all the help it has provided me already and will do going forward.

    After a ton of research, I ended up ordering the Blaze 32" freestanding LP and added on the sear burner, smoker box (I know it's small, but I have another I can supplement with), and rotisserie. I haven't received it yet, but it should be here soon.

    I also recently picked up a Maverick ET732 and a Thermapen Mk4 to help me in my new(er) adventures. I know that I'll end up with a smoker at some point as well as probably a kettle, but with a family of 5 I had to continue with a gasser until then.

    On most other forums I do more digesting than contributing until I learn more and can be of value to others. So initially I'll probably be a pretty quite member with more questions than answers, but I hope to eventually get to a point where I can chip in!

    Looking forward to all the fun!!!

                Welcome from Chico, CA. Some members think that post numbers have an inverse relationship to chances of winning the monthly prize. Don't buy it! Post your heart away and ask lots of questions. I learn most from other members based on their inquiries.

                          Mudkat , just a day last fall when I was at my inlaws and we were making applebutter in a big copper kettle over an open fire. I made ribs for everyone.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      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 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.

                      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.
