    New England New Guy

    Hello! My name is Gregg and I was raised on a farm in northern MA, right on the border of NH. I have been cooking since I was a kid, self taught, and since I stumbled upon this site have felt like a culinary genius. I recently moved from MA to NH and one of my purchases for the new house was a WSM 14.5, as I have always loved BBQ but never knew how accessible it was. Having the farm nearby is great, as I have infinite access to fruit wood, particularly apple. Amazingribs has been an invaluable resource and I love nothing better than creating some of the best food I have ever eaten, and sharing it with friends. The tools and tips here are awesome. I'm glad to be here, -Gregg

    Welcome from the Charleston, SC area! That apple wood is especially tasty with pork IMHO....


      Thanks for the support and welcome!!!

      We have a veterinarian we work with out here in Texas from Maryland. It is somewhere up there. And apparently has Belted Galloways.


        Welcome Gregg!


          Welcome! Infinite access to apple wood must be great - my favorite smelling smoking wood


            Welcome and good tidings from Houston, Alaska. The brain trust here is phenomenal! As an old line dog and chef, I really enjoy the give and take of our members. I have learned a great deal and have shared as well. I hope the same for you.


              Welcome Gregg! We're glad you're here. Huskee will probably come along with a homework assignment soon, but fear not, it's more fun than work. Again, welcome!


                I do indeed love my applewood smoked delights. So far it's been that as well as some mesquite I was able to get my hands on. I have done chicken and many pork cuts, but have yet to smoke up any beef. I am also excited for any future deer we take down on the farm. Wild venison, fed on our stolen apples, smoked with applewood. Mmmm.

                Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

                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! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs

                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.

                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’.
