    Steve.. BBQ Phanatic from Philly suburbs

    What's going on everybody! First, I just want to thank Meathead and the rest of the AmazingRibs staff for this site, their dedication and their always honest, unbiased opinions on everything that is AmazingRibs.com! Let me just say, that for someone who (no more than a year ago) had absolutely no BBQ experience, I can go from fan to connoisseur in such a short period of a time because of a simple, but informative site, shows how big of an impact you guys are making to not only myself, but also to the rest of the BBQ community and amateurs smoke lovers everywhere.

    It's true! I'm a BBQ lover and huge foodie. But by far, BBQ is my favorite food and there's nothing that I don't love about it. Last Spring, I remember watching BBQ Pitmasters and really getting into the show. So I figure that it's the perfect hobby to take up. But, like with most hobbies, starting out is the most difficult part. So I get on the internet and find AmazingRibs. To make a long story short, it is my BBQ bible and I am a believer. The best part about the site in my opinion is that it involves so much science and mythbusting. I like to know the basics, the truth, what works and that is just what this site does, plus so much more.

    I'm a 24 y/o who's real passion is food (mainly eating it), but BBQ is at the top of the list for cooking and eating. I've been a devoted follower since I found the site and joined the Pitmaster Club as soon as I saw the sites new edition. The bigger this site grows, the more experience and knowledge I will gain to hone my craft of BBQ. Without going on and on, let me just say that my skills would never be where they are today without AmazingRibs.com. I'm passionate about BBQ and the AmazingRibs family.

    Thank you!

            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!

            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’.

            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.

            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.
