    Happy Holidays from Fargo ND

    I just joined The Club and am trying to learn to navigate the site. I have grilled and smoked for a couple of days now and I have learned you never serve it until 3hrs. After They Expect To Eat!! They'll eat anything and swear it's great! I enjoy this site very much. Dan

    Welcome aboard Dan


      Welcome to the site!! Go BISON! !!


        Welcome Mr Johnston! To help you navigate quicker, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos!

        Hope to hear & see more from you.

        (You too docminn!)


          Thanks for the Welcome Boys! New Years Eve and I plan to Smoke Pork Ribs tomorrow I better save the Sauce! Docminn I live 4 blocks from NDSU and my wife teaches there but my Heart is with the Souix rather than the Bison! Credit where credit is due if the Bison should happen to win their 4th National Championship in 4 years not only Fargo but entire State of ND will be Pickled! Happy New Years One and All, Dan

              Ain't that the truth! Just last night my GF was telling ours guests to expect dinner an hour after I say we'd be eating. And damned if she wasn't right


                Next time ask them "Do you want it right?" or "Do you want it right now?" Ain't that the truth! Just last night my GF was telling ours guests to expect dinner an hour after I say we'd be eating. And damned if she wasn't right [/QUOTE]


                  Too funny. In my house, my wife always asks when will dinner be ready. I have learned to say "I'm hoping 6 or 6:30....so probably by 7:30, quarter to 8". Never fails.

                  The onyl time I've ever finished a meal early was a full packer brisket, go figure.


                    I'm eternally optimistic that I'll estimate correctly one day, but always hedge with "it's done when it's done" and "these ain't widgets." She's actually a great sport about it. And, yeah, I had that premature brisket issue last week

                      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.

                      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’.
