    Justin here....

    Hey there, I've been learning a ton from this site for years and am very grateful to MH and all who contribute to this great wealth of knowledge. I live in a small town in central Michigan and have been cooking with smoke on my Weber Performer for about 6 years. Earlier this year I got a Pit Barrel Cooker and have been having a lot of fun trying new techniques and just being creative. My favorites are pork ribs, turkey, tri-tip, pizza, and pork butts. My pantry is always stocked with magic dust, simon and garfunkel rub, and, lately, Saintly Glug. I use regular Kingsford charcoal.

    Cheers!

                    Hey JB, I usually cook pizza on my Weber or indoors. I always use Meathead's Roman style pizza dough recipe because it is easy and the results are fantastic. My kids NEVER ask for any other pizza. The couple of times that I cooked pizza on the PBC it was good, but I don't think that I got it quite hot enough--425 seems to be a good target for me. I have but do not typically use a pizza stone because getting the raw pizza onto a hot stone is difficult when you don't have a pizza peel. So I make the pizza in a pizza pan and just throw it on the hover grill in the Weber or in the oven. I get great results with just regular shredded mozzarella, a marinara (like Newman's cause it's not so sweet), some baby spinach, bell peppers for color, onion, and some diced pancetta or bacon--which really helps if you are cooking inside cause you still get some smokiness.

                    Cheers!
                    Justin

                      Hey Huskee, I'm down here in Grass Lake and, like you, I too enjoy strummin' a six string on a daily basis (when possible.)

                      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.

                      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. 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.
