    I LOVE that first photo, with the icicles coming out horizontally from the open lid while the chimney glows!

    Welcome to the PIT from the LOU, where when it comes to ribs, we know a thing or two. I love Carolina recipes as a changeup to the sweet smokies (dry) I most often make. And I'm watching closely to add a Bronco to my cookers.

    Welcome to The Pitmaster Club! Loved reading you intro. Thanks for your support!

    I too like the same kinda pulled pork and ribs as you. If you care to look at or try, I have a rib rub recipe and a few BBQ sauce ("shawsh") recipes you may be interested in trying out.

    Good bread, good meat...Good Lord, let's eat!

    Greetings, grillmasters!

    I discovered the site a few years ago when I took a stab at ribs and wanted reputable advice—I found it! When I got serious recently about the purchase of a dedicated smoker, I realized how valuable the Pitmaster Club could be and just how far down the rabbit hole you rib-sniffers have gone. And I wanna whiff o' that!

    I made a modest investment in mastering the charcoal arts in 2007 with a Walmart rust magnet. I was hooked by the smokey depth it added (in addition to the obvious primal arousal of watching and smelling as tangible fuels combust at my command). I replaced it with the aggressively-priced but versatile Char-griller Duo 5050, but I still prefer the charcoal side when there is time. Here I am braving the "adverse conditions" to put flame under meat while my South Carolina neighbors hoarded bread and milk.

    I'm proud of my history in the Carolinas, and the barbecue I'm partial to is pulled pork (with a sweeter sauce or mustard-base now and then) or ribs (with no sauce, if I can get 'em juicy and rubbed with the right stuff). As a charcoal newb, I worked on dialing in my burgers (my wife's "last meal" now), and stuck mostly to steaks, chops, and chicken thighs. Jamie Purviance's Weber books taught me the basics, like two-zone fires, and I still use several of the recipes.

    But now that I've nabbed a Bronco drum smoker, I have my sights set on Invite-him-to-the-Fourth ribs and Let's-just-stay-home Boston butt!

    Maybe I will post a newer photo or several of myself cooking or with an empty plate soon. I do enjoy pointing a camera at things if I'm not licking my fingers. Meanwhile, I'll post a larger copy of my avatar, taken by my wife while I heaped burning coals on the heads of my enemies. Look for me soon in the brand new Bronco channel or in the Pork channel getting rib advice and posting my nerd graphs. My project for this fall is juicy, tender dry rub ribs, and at the first sample, my wife's cousin said, "Forget turkey—bring these to Thanksgiving!"

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:

If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

slow n sear
The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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.

The Undisputed Champion!

thermapen
The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

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.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill
Napoleon's 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.

Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

Green Mountain Davey Crockett Grill
Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine.
