    Now there’s another newest member

    I just joined after my 90-day free trial. My son gave me Meathead’s cookbook for Christmas and the trial was included. Like the cookbook and the forum.
    I’m a long-time griller and smoker, starting on a hibachi on the patio of our duplex in Norman, Oklahoma, after we were married 52+ years ago. I got here after an Army tour out of ROTC and a 35-year Kodak career. I’ve lived in Austin, Houston (Spring), New Orleans (Mandeville) and now Dallas (Plano). Retired for nearly 15 years, we spent much of that time keeping grandkids so daddy and mommy could work.
    I’m a golfer and found a few hundred dollars of winnings and door prizes I had ratholed in my roll top desk getting it ready to sell. So, I bought myself a PBJ, which I like a lot now that I don’t use their lighting procedure. I also have a Cookshack Smokette 008 (manufactured in Ponca City, America), a Weber performer and a basic Weber 18” grill I bought when I threw away my gas grill because I missed the flavor of charcoal. A Thermapen and Smoke Alarm keep me from getting in too much trouble.
    Wow, I didn’t realize I was going to say that much, or had that much to say. I’m looking forward to the forum.

    Forgot to mention that I’m a bourbon drinker. It’s nearly 5, so I’m going to fix one. By the time it’s ready, it will be 5. Cheers!

                        Huntington Beach welcomes you.

                        What I don’t understand is why you bought that sandwich with all the great gear you have? Surely you could’ve fixed something more substantial.

                              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.

                              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.
