    Greetings from Harlingen, TX...

    Hello everyone. My name is Art Olivarez and I'm excited to be a part of this awesome community of grilling enthusiasts!
    I've been grilling for over 20 years, but I've only grilled the usual cuts of meat: chicken leg quarters, thighs, beef fajitas, and hamburgers.

    I've been looking to up my game, but didn't really know where to turn. A few months ago, I saw a YouTube video on how to properly grill steaks. It featured Meathead on a news segment on how to grill thick steaks and skinny steaks. Once I googled the name "Meathead", I found this site.

    All can say is "wow". I am very impressed with the wealth of knowledge displayed here. I'm hoping to learn much from this site and from everyone of my fellow grillers. My goals are to one day smoke a brisket and a turkey.

    I hail from Harlingen, TX which is located in deep South Texas, approximately 30 miles west of South Padre Island. Once again, I am excited to be a part of this forum and hope to learn much.

    Happy grilling!

      Welcome to the Pit, Art. Based upon your goals I recommend starting with the turkey, it's pretty easy to cook on the grill. Brisket is challenging but also very rewarding.

        Welcome aboard Art. This is definitely the place to come to up your game. Last time I was in Harlingen was Spring Break 1983, when we stayed with a friend's uncle to do Padre.

            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: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs


            Groundbreaking Hybrid Thermometer!

            Thermapen One Instant Read Thermometer

            The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

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


            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.

            Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

            Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
            Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            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.

            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’.

            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.
