    Huntington Beach welcomes you young man!

    Remember "as the twig is bent so grows the tree." Meathead above gave you great advice, go to learn the science in the free part of the site and apply it immediately to start learning great habits to have.

    I personally suggest the science of salt and learning as much as possible about heat and it's effects on protein. Start there, that should keep you busy for a decade or so.

    learning a few sciences from the free part will PROPEL to another level and you will "Smoke" all of your friends and leave other adults in the dust.

    good luck and take pics!!

    Welcome from California. I was about your age when I started cooking family dinners - my mom didn’t like to cook so she made me a deal: I cook she cleans. It was a match made in heaven. Well, kind of...my wife loves my cooking, but hates the mess I make! 🤣😂🤣

    Good for you to take an interest in cooking at your age. I love it! Keep it up...ask a lot of questions...and, no matter how many dishes get messed up, always keep cooking!!!

    Can’t wait to see what happens on your cooking adventure!

    But we don't really mind when the same question gets asked more than once. Helps us too!

    Welcome from Winnipeg. Great to have someone your age join some of us old guys. I agree with the suggestion to start with the tips on the main site, then read or ask questions in here. The search function is pretty good to see if your question has already been asked and answered.

    Welcome to the Pit! When I was a lot closer to your age one of my teachers said, “Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lesson afterwards.” You have a great opportunity in the Pit to learn from other’s experience.

    Welcome to The Pit Brett! Glad to have you here. It looks like you want to be the best cook you can be. So I suggest you spend some time reading articles on the free side that discuss the "why" behind how things work. If you understand the principles, the "how" of recipes makes much more sense.

    Christmas has passed, but I suspect you have a birthday coming next year, so I'm going to recommend two books that go into the science behind cooking:

    Meathead Goldwin's The Science of Great BBQ and Grilling. This book has the info from the free side, but in a more logical manner.

    Kenji Lopez Alt's The Food Lab. This book has a ton of great info on cooking in general, and will also help you with whatever you want to cook.

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:

If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

slow n sear
The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

Click here for our article on this breakthrough tool


The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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.

The Undisputed Champion!

thermapen
The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

Grilla pellet smoker
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.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

grill grates
GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

kareubequ bbq 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

masterbuilt gas 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'.

Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

maverick PT55 thermometer
A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

Track Up To Six Temperatures At Once

FireBoard Drive 2 is an updated version of a well-received product that sets the standard for performance and functionality in the wireless food thermometer/thermostatic controller class.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill
Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

Green Mountain Davey Crockett Grill
Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
