    Hello From Michigan

    Hello All,

    I am from Canton Michigan, a western suburb of Detroit. I have been cooking BBQ and smoking food for about five years. I started out cooking on a Weber Genesis using the two zone cooking techniques and Last Meal Ribs recipe I found on AmaizingRibs.com. From the Genesis I moved to a propane box smoker and now I am currently cooking on a Yoder 640. Some my other equipment includes a Maverick 732, 12” & 18” A-Mazing Smoker tubes and Frogmats. Even though I usually BBQ something every weekend during the warmer months, I still consider myself a novice and rely on this site for tips and recipes when trying something new.

    Welcome to The Pit Focker! Any favorite BBQ or steak places in the motor city? I'm about ~2 1/2hrs north of you near Clare.

    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!


      Welcome and thanks for the support!!

      I work with a woman from MI down here in east Texas.


        Welcome, Focker. Michigan is a wonderful place!


          Hello Focker I work in Canton but live in Howell ! I hope you enjoy this forum.


            Welcome to the pit!


              Hey! Another Michigander. I owned a house in Canton for 2 years ('96-'98). East side of Lilley about 1/4 mile south of Palmer. I live in South Lyon which isn't too far from Canton, although Howell, where JGK lives, is a bit closer.

              PS - is your first name Greg or Gaylord?


                Rich Here,

                Hello from Northern Indiana. Lurking around the site for about a year and decided to join. Gotten a lot of tips that have worked out wonderfully. Fairly new to smoking and have been loving it so far.


                  Welcome Aboard, Rich and Focker




                      Welcome from PA. The only affiliation I have with Michigan is that I'm an The Ohio State fan (born & raised east of Cleveland). Sorry. We still can be friends (I like Jim Harbaugh shhhh). FYI my wife, kids, in laws etc. are Penn State fans. My son in law has already ordered ribs & pulled pork for the OSU vs Penn St. game.

                      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: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs

                      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.
