    Mark Grossbauer here

    Hey all you BBQ brothers and sisters -- thanks for letting me play in your pit from Sheridan, Michigan. I am very new to cooking low and slow and am looking forward to getting to know the art of this type of cooking. I consider myself a pretty good "griller", however I have already read enough on here to significantly improve my successes in the grill as well.

    My wife bought me a Smokey Hollow ProSeries LPG smoker from Sam's Club for my birthday in November and I used it with great success for the first time smoking a 15 pound turkey for Thanksgiving by following the tips on this site (rave reviews around the table) and just yesterday smoked three meaty slabs of SLC pork ribs, also with rave reviews (although I did let the water pan dry out and they were a bit more chewy than I had planned).

    My next venture will be to dry out some venison jerky and hickory sticks with the smoker here in the next couple of weeks. I am sure it will be a significant improvement over the oven-dried method we have been using.

    Thanks again, hope to catch up to you all on a regular basis. The pic is just before removing from the smoker for Christmas.

                Right on Mark! You might want to check out MH's Huli Huli marinade and try it on your jerky - it is a teriyaki with ginger, sesame oil and BBQ sauce; definitely full-flavor stuff! Welcome to the Pit from the SC Lowcountry!

                  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


                  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.

                  Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                  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!

                  Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                  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.
