    BBQ Novice in Soth East Michigan!!!


    I'm in! My daughter got me this membership as a Cmas present. Do I have great kids or what?

    I'm Mark and I'm 54, live and work in South East Michigan, happliy maried for the last 32 years to Tamara. I found an affinity for southern foods during our many, many family vacations to the south. So when both kids moved out of the house a while ago, I found the time to take on a new hobby - 'Q.'

    We still travel a lot and search out good Q. Last trip included Bob Sykes in Bessemer Alabama, The Joint in New Orleans, and Walts in Port Charlotte, Fl.

    I've meen a Meathead Maven for quite a long time. The 'Last Meal' ribs article with recipes really gave me the courage to try this suff myself.

    I'm looking forward to all y'all's good posts.

            Got it, Dave. I've already entered a few. I'm still learning, but I'm starting to see the differences in how pork is prepared base upon the info on this site. Next trip is gonna ba Nashvill this February. Can't wait!

              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

               

              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.

              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!

              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’.

              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.

              Groundbreaking Hybrid Thermometer!

              Thermapen One Instant Read Thermometer

              The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

              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.

              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.
