    Pitmasterron intro

    Hey folks. Don't let my handle fool you I am no "Pit Master" that is just wishful thinking. I am totally here to learn.
    I am a 57 year old retired Staff Sergeant from the Toronto Canada Police Service. I retired 8 years ago and joined forces with my long time best friend to open a private Investigation Firm www.isninc.ca. My wife and I have a home on the water in Ontario (Paradise 1) and a beautiful condo in Placidia Florida (Paradise 2).
    I got interested in BBQing about 4 years ago when my 24 year old daughter asked me spend the weekend with her and 4 girlfriends and be their cook. I wanted to BBQ them the most amazing ribs ever. So I Googled "amazing ribs" and the rest, as they say, is history.
    I love site but in particular the educational value.
    Thank you for the welcome.
    Kind regards

              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!

              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!

              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.

              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.

              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.
