    Welcome, wish I could grill back when I was in, I could only burn burgers. Made a mean Mahi Mahi though.

    Welcome JGuiles. You're not going to sing for us, are you? Please share your experiences with your WSM once you actually use it. I got one for Christmas (14.5" mini) and have used it twice in horrible weather conditions.

    Greetings from our nation's capital!

    Hello Everyone!

    Names Jeremy but my friends call me jguiles and by virtue of BBQ you are all now my friends. I'm excited to finally be here, I've been a big fan of this site for a long time and I decided I needed to pay my dues for all of the great information. I'm a Missouri military boy living out here in DC, I'm out of my element but at least the grill doesn't know where we are! I've been doing amateur BBQ at home for a long time but always on a regular grill. I just bought a Weber Smokey Mountain (finally!) and could not be more excited to fire this thing up!!! I plan to season it this weekend and let the games begin. It's good to be here and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you all!!

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

Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

Our Favorite Backyard 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


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’.
