    Greetings from Jim in York, PA

    Howdy All,
    I just joined the PitMaster's Club. I've lurked and posted a few times on the forums and when I ran across this club, it was a no-brainer to join and help give back.
    About me: I've been grilling (on propane) for 20 years, but got a Kamado Joe for Father's day a few years back and since I love to cook, I thought I would try my hand at smoking things. I have 3 growing boys and thanks to the KJ and sites like this, I now have a whole family (5 of us) of BBQ lovers. Pulled Pork, Brisket, Chicken, Ribs... etc. I've started receiving requests from friends and extended family to provide pulled pork and other goodies for their gatherings. I also really like to cook up a big batch of pulled pork and bring it to work to feed folks here - usually as a surprise. Amazing how much good will you can generate with $30 worth of pork shoulder!
    I travel a good bit for work, so I sometimes get a chance to sample local BBQ-type fare. I've been to about half of the states, plus the UK and India. I've had some amazing food, and some... not so amazing food.
    Looking forward to continuing to expand my horizons in the BBQ and grilling world.

    -Jim

              Thanks - I think I know that guy. Last I heard he moved out west somewhere...Bel Air maybe?

              Love this site - I'm an IT guy by trade but I love to cook, so the whole science/technology + meat and smoke thing really speaks to me.

                Yeah, that's the guy!

                We have a TON of IT/software guys here. There must be some sort of connection with computers and BBQ. I have yet to meet another healthcare worker, I guess I'm in the minority...

              Sounds like a great excuse. Sorry guys, I have to leave the office now. I'm doing a review on a BBQ joint here in town and I have to get there before my flight home!

                      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!

                      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.
