    Louisianan in Memphis

    🙌

    Finally joined the Pitmasters!

    I’m JD originally from Farmerville, Louisiana, and I love LSU football. The LSU picture is from this years National Championship game in New Orleans.

    Met my wife, Katie, and moved to her city in 2005, Memphis. The barbecue in Memphis is good. So good that I actually know more about Memphis cooking than Louisiana cooking. Need to work on that. Anyway, that’s a picture of us at The Roosevelt in New Orleans this last Christmas.

    We have three kids (Nora, 6, and twin boys James and Simon, 5). Their favorite restaurant is Huey’s, a Memphis burger chain. Nora’s favorite food is baked beans and pulled pork. Simon likes the healthy green stuff. James only eats chicken tenders and club crackers.

    Have been running by backyard for eight years cooking off of a Weber propane and electric dorm fridge style smoker. Everything I’ve learned has been on AmazingRibs.com. Added a Primo to start using charcoal and for its versatility, figured I’d finally invest in you guys as part of that purchase. The picture is a pork butt from my first cook. I want a dedicated smoker next, been eyeing that KBQ, but happy to take my time and learn slowly.

    I have so many dumb questions to ask. Can’t wait to get to know y’all. Geaux Tigahs!

                    Man, you are way down South. Awesome! Got a good roux for me?

                    jdgraffam Never used a roux, just Wondra Flour to thicken up the goodness you already created in the pot.

                    Welcome aboard from Rockland County NY.

                    Well one way to get to know us better is to sign up for the Meat Up this summer. It’s not like you’ll have to travel very far. 😁

                      Oh, I’m well aware of it. Waiting for missus to be in the right mood to ask 😉

                          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.

                          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.
