    New From Switzerland

    Hello All!

    I am a transplant from the US living in Switzerland. I have lurked for a couple years on Amazing Ribs for most of my BBQ learning.

    Right now I use a Weber Kettle Grill for all my needs but I am hoping to add a Karubecue C-60 at some point. My big problem is space and find a steady supply of wood.

    I am planning to be more actively involved in the BBQ community here in the Pitmaster Club.

    Welcome to the Pitmaster Club! Where in Switzerland are you? It’s a nice country, I’ve been there many times.

    Since you’re new, and if you haven't already done so, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

    Also, it's very important that you:

    Give us an email address you actually use. You can check the email we have on file for you by clicking your name in the upper-right, then User Settings, then the Account tab. 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)!

    Thanks for joining!
