    Hafa Adai!

    ...or "Greetings" in the Guam (Chamorro) language. I'm Jack, originally a Tennessee country boy. Came to the island almost 20 years ago when I was in the Air Force, then retired after a 26 year career and never left. Currently work for the US Coast Guard here as a federal civilian employee. Been grilling for years, and just got into smoke about a year and a half ago when I purchased a Traeger Pro 23. Been a lot of pork butts, shoulders, ribs, turkeys, chickens, meat loaf, pizza, cheese, vegetables, and even a pie or two...and no complaints from the eaters. Also have a strong love of firearms, knives, hunting wild pigs (and cooking them), cigars, single malts, and of course God, Country, and Family!

                      That was literally from frying pan to the freezer! Pretty sure the island has changed up a bit since his service.

                        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.

                        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.

                        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’.

                        GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone

You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
