    Hello from Elmira, OR

    Hello all! I did a lot of research, mostly using this website, and purchased my husband, Mike, a Green Mountain Grill Daniel Boone a few months ago. In reality, I've used it mostly. :-) We are both new to grilling and smoking but are loving the new tastes and exploring the how-to's of using the new grill.

    We have a motorhome that we camp in at least once a month, but starting this month we'll be in it 2-3 weekends a month until September. Since getting the GMG we haven't touched our propane grill at home and just used our Webber Q in the motorhome a few weeks ago and disliked the taste of everything we cooked. I see the GMG Davy Crockett as an additional grill in the very near future! Our absolute favorite go-to meal on the grill is homemade pizza on our Emile Henry glazed pizza stones. Amazing!

    I work as a Controller for a local commercial property management/development company and have been here for almost 19 years. Mike is a plumber and 9 years ago we started our own plumbing company. Combined we have 5 children, 3 married with 6 grandchildren and then 2 teenage boys still at home. The boys at home both race ATV MX that takes us all over Washington and Oregon for races. We have a Rzr that we enjoy taking to the dunes and mountains to ride with the boys and Mike has a Harley that he's planning on taking over to Sturgis this year. We love to camp in our 40 foot motorhome with all the amenities, and yes that is still camping :-). Spending time with family, eating and drinking . . . can't get any better than that!

    Looking forward to learning more about grilling!

    Welcome to The Pit TracyStrode ! Great intro and very nice meeting you. We all have our definition of camping, lol. Another member uses the Davy Crockett when camping if I recall correctly and loves it.

    Great job on your signature, you must've done your homework. But in case you haven't seen it yet, here's our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

    Hope to hear & see more from you!


      Hi Tracy, Welcome!


        Thank you!

        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!

        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.

        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.

        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.

        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’.

        GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
