    Jon from Georgia

    Hey, new to the club here. Not a competitor, just a back yarder, but am on BBQ Brethren with the same user ID. I don't post much, but do read a lot. I wanted to support Amazing Ribs because when I started getting back into the low and slow 5 or 6 years ago, this site helped me nail spares and continues to be a unending source of inspiration and information.

      Good to have ya Jon. I too am in the yard.

      I can see why people would love to compete, I just have an infinite negative desire to do so.

            Welcome Jon from a fellow Georgian. I pretty much feel as you do about competition. My competition is the results and comments i get from my family and friends at home. Not that competition isn't great. Anyway welcome and I look forward to reading your posts.

              Thanks guys. I think competing is great, for those with the time, inclination and money - none of which I have. For me, I love cooking for others, and the joy they get from the food is reward. I want to cook food that I want to eat (sometimes a LOT of) and that my family wants to eat. I like learning techniques from the competitors, but have no interest taking up that mantle beyond, perhaps, some local "back yard" comp. Thanks for the welcomes!

                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


                Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


                Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! 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.

                Surely you know somebody who loves outdoor cooking who deserves a gift for the holidays, birthday, anniversary, or just for being wonderful. There he is, right in the mirror! Here are our selections of best ideas, all Platinum or Gold Medalists, listed by price.

                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!

                Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                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 quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                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.
