    Hello from CA

    Hello. My wife indirectly got me this subscription for Christmas. I got her perfume and 49ers pjs and she told me to go on a bbq shopping spree! Well of course along with my gloves, rib rack, frogmat, etc. I had to also join the pitmaster club! Anyways I got tuned in to smoking/bbq somehow 6or so months ago. I did a bunch of reading and research and eventually decided a weber kettle was going to be my goto grill! I looked for a while for a deal (end of season maybe?) on a weber gold but no luck. Finally I find an open box model at lowes. Wait a week or two to finally bite. Get it home excited for the first smoke but the box is missing a leg! Can't really cook on a leaner. Took it back and somehow managed to score the display model for the same price! ($50 off)! And it was prebuilt! Anyways I've been exclusively doing the snake method and it's working pretty good. I've done ribs, butt, tri tip, fatty, abts. They've come out pretty good but I wu definitely be asking questions very soon!

      Sorry about the single paragraph. Not sure why that happened.

        Welcome to The Pit, tucker! Glad you got rid of the leaner and scored a good deal on a 3-legged kettle. I think fashioning a wooden leg would've been fun, and made for some cool pictures here in The Pit!

        Since this is your first post, 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.

          FYI - this site doesn't like iOS and will ignore paragraph spacing if you are in an iPad / iPhone - Pit Boss said it is a known issue and they are working with IT to get it fixed.

          Anyway - a big Pit welcome for the Charleston, SC area!

            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


            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!

            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.

            Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

            Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
            Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

            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.
