    Matt from England

    Good day Ladies and Gentlemen,

    My name is Matt, I'm from near London, England. I'm 34 years old and I've been grilling since I was old enough to hold tongs. My family life in the summer time revolved around the BBQ, family and friends in and out of my Mum and Dad's house all summer, I would feel so sad as a little kid when we put the BBQ away for the winter. I married a girl who's family love the BBQ just as much as I do so I couldn't be happier. I've been getting into the low and slow BBQ over the past two years and I now cook all year round. I have a little boy called Buddy who is nearly two. He loves BBQ.

    I love it so much that a friend and I are going into business, nothing major at first, but we're doing a few farmer's markets in the next couple of months and a couple of festivals over here in the UK.

    None of this would have happened without this here site. I have learnt so much from the recipes and from posting in the comments, I don't think I'd be looking at turning BBQ into a job without amazingribs.com so thank you all.

    We cook on Ugly Drums, I'm onto my third now, making alterations as I go to improve them, we will have five of them in the next month, I'll post some pictures of the builds as they happen.

    Glad to be here!

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!

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.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

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’.

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.
