    Jon here!

    Holy pig! I've been on banned! Totally stoked to be on the forum. Looking forward to some great conversation and some smokin good times! (puns intended)

    I hail from SE Michigan, l love movies, animals, long walks on the beach. I'm a Moon Child... hehehe

    Seriously, I'm an Air Force vet from long ago, have a grown son and a couple of dogs that keep me company. Love to cook on my colection of Webers and thanks to AR I can deliver a pretty good low and slow product to family and friends..

    I'm really looking forward to hanging in the Pit

    Welcome Jon...

    what do you mean 'on banned' I am not familiar with that expression


      Hey Rick its a bit of a long story but if you do something wrong on a forum you can be "banned", your membership terminated. I was banned earlier in the set up stages of this forum due to technical reasons. ( not that I've ever been banned from a forum : )


        Jon - Welcome! We're glad The Pit is finally open and you can get in! Please take a moment to read my welcome letter and tips on how to create your signature. Then kick back and relax

        Rick - Jon is making an inside joke. He inadvertently got access a few weeks ago before we went live with the site. He was only in for a matter of minutes, but he wrecked things so bad it took us a month to fix them! lol OK I kid, he didn't wreck things, but he did get in by accident. We're still scratching our heads as to how he found his way in.


          That's kind of what I thought, but it didn't completely register since this forum seems relatively new, I haven't noticed a post older than a month...so it didn't seem realistic to think that someone's behavior got them banned, but the ban is already listed. Glad to hear it was a technical issue that's been resolved, with this being essentially a subscription forum I would hope that we can have lively discussion, with many different opinions, yet still keep the trolls away.


            just think of it as white hat hacking...

            Read the letter but struggling a bit to find the siggy button...

            I'll get it.

              That's the idea

              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!

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.

              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’.
