    Welcome and best of luck with your plans! If you come to the states and want to check out the BBQ in Central Texas, give me shout. I'd be glad to show you around here.

    I am completely in love with the idea of NYC. Will be interesting to see if my idea of the city will match the reality! I definitely know that there are some amazing areas, wish I could spend a little more time to get to see them.

    Maybe that will be the next trip to the States. First time see the big cities and the like, second time see the nature. Go camping somewhere (with a Weber of course) and enjoy some nature sounds like a plan to me.

    Don't the smog & crime-ridden big cities spoil your impression, the US has some beautiful areas. I live here and have only seen a few of the many. My favorite spot (so far) is the Florida Keys, particularly Key West. Simple, humble and beautiful, but touristy yes.

    Thanks everyone. New Zealand is beautiful, we sometimes forget how beautiful our backyard is! I try and get out into nature as often as I can so I don't forget.

    It's crazy how people are all like "NZ is on the bucket list, I really wanna go!" and I have the same thoughts but towards going to the States! Planning a trip to NYC and Cali for December this year. One of my bucket list items is to see the USA! Would love to get to the south to appreciate some REAL BBQ.

    Welcome CP! You sure live in a beautiful land, I've always admired the scenery I've seen from NZ. Meathead has a great article on starting up a catering and/or restaurant business. It warns you of the hurdles you'll face. I trust you'll make a good decision & serve up some great food if you pursue it.

    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.

    Craigen or CP, what ever works.

    Hey all!

    I am Craigen. I hail from all the way down in little old Auckland, New Zealand. I think I have read every single page on AR and have learnt so damn much!

    So much in fact that I am contemplating quitting my job in IT and opening up a van based mobile food stall! The aim is to serve beautiful pulled pork buns (sandwiches) and tacos. A variation of MH's ribs and some other things too. Only actually thought of the idea seriously about a day or two ago so have been going through the process of researching permit requirements etc.

    We have a serious lack of USA styled BBQ down here in NZ. There are, I think, about 3 or so places that actually do it, and only one of them does it right. I was born in South Africa in 1990 and moved to NZ when I was 7 years old. South Africans have a HUGE appetite and association with coal based BBQ and think that these roots is what makes me love the American style of BBQ so much. I have always been into food and am now one step closer to making my passion my lively hood.

    I am sure you will be hearing a lot more from me trying to pick your brains on my journey to try and realise my dream!

    CP.

    Over and out.

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

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.

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’.
