    Hello amazingribs community!

    First, excuse my english in advance. I am french speaking and my writing in another language might be hasardeous sometimes.

    I came around amazingribs.com recently as I was reaserching info about competition ribs recipes and technics.

    A group of friend and I have competed in a local backyard BBQ competition last july... and won! The prize was a 22 inch Weber charcoal grill (featuring with me on my upside down profile pix - don't know how I manage to do that reverse thing), and an entry to another competition september 14.

    We already know that we will have to cook ribs, chicken wings, an apple dessert and some mystery meat (we don't know yet if it's only the meat or if there is going to be some ingredients with it).

    Since our wings in the first competition won 1st prize, we are gonna keep that recipe for the second competition (yes, we are that bold). I think we are on the right path with the ribs (thanks to all of the contributors here) and are working hard to find THE apple recipe to be cook on a charcoal grill. Any advice you might have for us about that mystery meat are welcome.

    The competition consist of 10 or 11 teams of 4 persons each, the organisers provides all the same grills, chimneys, hardwood charcoal and meat to all the teams. Then you have to present your cooking to 5 judges in a precise period of time. It's friendly to the point that they help you start your fire if you need to...

    I don't have any pix of the first competition, but you would be surprise to see what our burgers looks like when we got them off the grill (anybody knows about the Maillard reaction? Well we do now).

    The hardest part seems to be getting along with all the team members when it's time to choose wich recipe to go with. It take a good amount of letting go. Still working on that part.

    I will keep you informed on how we will do on septembre 14. Keeping my fingers crossed (wich explain all the typos you will find in my post).

    Bonne journée à tous!

                Welcome from the mountains of NC. I worked for a company up there. I loved the sandwich which is like our pastrami. it has been 20 years or more.

                For your kettle look into getting a DigiQ with Viper fan or Fireboard with fan. also a Smoke and Sear or Smokenator to hold the coals. Also add an upper rack. These will allow you to maintain a perfect temp and perfect temp over time.

                I did ribs last week and the DigiQ held the Weber 22 at 250 for the 5 hour cook. The St. Louis ribs were pull off the bone tendet.

                    Welcome to the Pit! As you probably know that Weber kettle can do marvelous things once you've figured out how to maintain a selected temp. Lots of us have them and don't need anything more fancy then 3 binder clips and a good digital thermometer.

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 good one grill

                        The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

                        Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                        Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                        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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                        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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        NK-22-Ck Grill

                        Their 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.
