    Hello from Illinois / Bolingbrook

    Hello from another Illinois new member (Bolingbrook)!

    Been grilling, and attempting to smoke on my Weber for 15 years now, but tomorrow I take delivery of my Yoder 480.. .can't wait!

    From other northern Illinois folks, where do you source fantastic meats?

    Standard Market in Naperville closed this week. I was just at Standard Market Westmont (one of Meatheads personal places), and it was severely lacking in selection, and I fear they're going under too. They didn't have any briskets, and just one small pork butt.

    I'm looking to source some Prime Briskets, and Heritage Pork, anyone have any good places that regularly carries them? I'm all for hitting up the local farmers markets, but I'd rather not wait when the bug hits me to smoke something. I'm not against taking an adventurous road trip either out to somewhere remote, or farm.

      Indeed, 480! I ordered from All Things BBQ. Nearly took a road trip out to see em, but wouldn't have a way to get it home! We'll see how the FedEx semi truck does on my residential streets tomorrow with a 480lb skid

      Welcome, guess you haven’t heard of the SlowNSear for your kettle. You’ll want to pick one up anyways for what it will turn your kettle into. Take pics of your Yoder & first cook, we’d like to see em. Eat good and have fun!

        I've heard of it, but the Kettle has seen better days, and nearly rusting out the bottom. Time for something new!

            I like the way you think.... What's your favorite place in TN? Will be driving through this summer. Top Hog in Gallatin was fantastic last couple times I was in town.

              Also, it's very important that you:

It’s tied to your Pitmaster Club account as well as our payment processor, Stripe. Don’t worry though, you can change it by simply visiting https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/pi...il-request.php

              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 paying USA members or those with a USA delivery address (we’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us)!

                Welcome! We're happy you've joined up with a Trial membership, we hope you choose to stick around. Often you'll find Prime briskets at Costco, and sometimes Sam's. REALLY good prices too compared to online sources.
