    Season Greetings team!

    I am glad to be here finally, I use the site all the time to help me with certain situations from recipes to accessories, to the science of what we smoke and why. I am new to the low & slow world of cooking (since 2012), but I am a quick and eager learner. I hope to learn a lot from the group to help perfect all meats that I do, but no rush, low & slow is fine with me. I am getting a UDS from my wife for Christmas and can't wait to hear that delivery truck pull up. I have been using a COS since I started cooking and I have modified It the best I could and have been getting some good results, but a lot of work comes with keeping the temperature maintain, I must say it is fun though! Happy Holidays from the Nicholas family in Arizona.

    Merry Xmas and a big Pit welcome from the SC Lowcountry!


      Welcome!!! I know the COS "fun" all too well. I converted mine to gas as soon as my Pit Barrel took over.


        Welcome Nick, You are going to really like it here. We have a great bunch of folks and I look forward to your Posts and Pics.

        Thank you for your service to our Country!!

                    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!

                    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’.

You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
