    Greetings From Atlanta, GA

    My name is Gerald and I've been a student pupil of this site for a couple of years now. I've turned a lot of people on to it as well and just figured it was time for me to pony up, considering how much I've already benefited.
    About 3 years ago, I had a Weber gas grill and a Weber Kettle, and thought I was set for life. Out of the blue, I was given a BGE by the wife and kids and have become all things BBQ since, not to mention truly high heat grilling (i.e. steak, pizza).

    I really enjoy and appreciate the science backed research you guys do, especially the Myth Busting, which has resulted in several "interesting discussions" with people who cling to the old myths.

    Anyway, I'm happy to be here and hope to have something worthwhile to contribute once in a while!

    Welcome, I did some time up near Athens myself, which has me craving some Varsity right now...


      Nice to meet you Gerald. I just joined today and, like you, I hope to learn from others on this forum.


        Welcome! I love my BGE, too! I just got a Kamodo Joe Jr. An noticed it cooks faster and can cook meat for 4. It also can do a large Boston Butt. I've been experimenting with reverse sear.


          Welcome Gerald. You are really going to like it here.


            Welcome gbt01 ! Glad to have you here. Such a nice family, giving you a BGE. I've been hinting I'd like a Primo Oval XL and so far no dice....you should tell us how you got that to happen!

            Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

            Hope to hear & see more from you!


              Hi there Gerald.


                Hi Gerald,

                Glad you're here, and that you've got a really good setup. I bought a 22.5 Weber OTS last Sept. Been using the gasser for 13 years and was completely clueless about charcoal until I discovered this site. Yep, everyone here has been a lifesaver for me!

                Smokin' (2) 6 lb Hams and (1) 2 lb Turkey Ham ( for the boss! ) tomorrow. Couldn't do it without the recipe and techniques from this site.

                Don't forget the Cookin' Log!

                  Welcome Gerald. You can learn a LOT from the people on this site. I can't stress this enough: Do NOT hesitate to solicit tips and advice in the Pit. I have done so on several occasions and it always turned out beneficial.

                  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.

                  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’.

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                  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.
