    Long time smoker, first time poster

    Greetings everyone from Central PA. I have been grilling and smoking for many years, I really got into it about a decade ago when I started using charcoal baskets to create a smoker from my Weber kettle. A few years later I upgraded to a Weber Smokey Mountain and started perfecting my art (and science!). As my family grew, the convenience of a pellet grill called out to me and, as always, consulted AmazingRibs to help me settle on the Camp Chef Woodwind.

    These days, I smoke everything I can get my hands on and more often than not, Memphis Dust finds it way onto it. I'm a huge believer in this website and the scientific approach to cooking. I'm a true grilling mythbuster and joined some smoking Facebook groups just to help disseminate the straight dope on grilling and smoking science. I also dabble in curing and smoking my own bacon, sausage and fish, cheese smoking, as well as using sous vide to complement and enhance my smoked foods. Meathead's been with me every step of the way, so I thought now is a great time to join and be part of this great community. Thanks!

                              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!

                              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’.

                              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.

                              Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine.

                              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.

                              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.
