    Learning by doing.

    I've lurked here for about 3 years, and was a member of the PitMaster club early on, then drifted away. Consider me a prodigal son. Really appreciate the shared knowledge and experience of both the moderators and participants.

    I'm a big advocate of the Pit Barrel Cooker and have learned a lot by experimenting with temperature control with this UDS. Yes, you can light it an forget it...but what's the fun if there's no tinkering? There's so much flexibility with this machine, adapting temperatures for whatever you are cooking. (Congrats to Noah and Amber Glanville and how well they've done over a few short years.(

    Would love to see the good people of AmazingRibs.com host a weekend event. I'd travel from Texas for it and pay for the privilege of attending. (I'd also be glad to help coordinate.) Ribapalooza? Porkapalooza?

    Keep up the good work lads. You improve people's lives...the people who cook and the people who benefit from it.

    I've made a few people happy with my cooking, and that's as good as it gets.

      We are pretty spread out geographically, but I could probably do something in Texas. How about in Arkansas that's kind of the middle of the country!

      Technically the geographical center of North America is in North Dakota, so with that being said, Minneapolis is the closest major city, so lets do it here!! (Minneapolis)

      Welcome back Bill!!

        Alright Minneapolis then. Not sure where Rugby North Dakota is but I know that Minneapolis is an easy two day drive! Might be an excuse to take my motorbike on a road trip

            Latitudinally and Longitudinally speaking, you guys are probably right. But Austin, Texas is in fact, the center of the universe. Happy to host here. ;-) Thanks for the warm welcome back all.

              And I was going you say the same (and often do) about NYC.

            Very belated welcome Bill! I'd like to visit Texas some day, but alas I am a northerner and I don't like to sweat. Never fear, I'll still make it there eventually. Maybe in winter!

            Since this is your one of first posts, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos, such as setting up your signature.

            Hope to hear & see more from you!

            Huskee, there is nothing like a Fall day in Austin (particularly at a Longhorn football game) or a Spring day out at the lakes.

            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!

Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

            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.

            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.

            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!

            3 burner gas grill

            The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

            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.
