    First timer

    First time using a forum like this. I joined because I am looking to start my own bbq catering company in my area. I’m looking for some feedback on what to look out for, ideas on how to simplify or better my bbq and help on finding quality product.

    Welcome from southeast Michigan! You're in the right place for reliable advice!


      Welcome to The Pit! Happy to have you here, we hope you'll choose to stick around.

      Have you seen Meathead's article on the subject? Packed with info and things you may not have considered: https://amazingribs.com/barbecue-his...ering-business I'm sure you'll find it useful. And, congrats and best o' luck to you!

      Since you’re new here, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

      Also, it's very important that you:
      1. Give us an email address you actually use. You can check the email we have on file for you by clicking your name in the upper-right, then User Settings, then the Account tab. You currently cannot change your email on file with us yourself since it’s tied to your Pitmaster Club account as well as our payment processor, Stripe, if you’re a paying member. Don’t worry though, we’d be happy to change it for you, just click here to fill out an email change request.
      2. Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam! This is important so you can receive special deals we occasionally work out for our members, receive notices about your account, such as if you’re up for renewal or are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner, which is open to all USA members. (Paid members get automatic monthly entry, whereas Free Trial members or general public must enter manually.) We’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us!

      Hope to hear & see more from you!

                          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It’s among the best bargains for a smoker in the world. This baby cooks circles around cheap offset smokers because temperature control is so much easier. Click here to read our detailed review and the raves from people who own them.
