    New to Site - great Site But....

    Hello! I love this site! It has completely changed the way I grill and cook!! I have used several recipes from this site that come out awesome!! Since I have been using the site for a few months I decided to join the Pitmaster's Club. Here's where I could use a bit of help....

    I am trying to view the article "The Big Chill: A trick For Making The Perfect Sous Vide Steak" on the free side. I am getting blocked by this: Members Only

    Pitmaster Club membership benefits include:

    Exclusive content, monthly grill giveaways, product discounts, no ads, free books, free magazines, newsletters, Meat-Ups, podcast, interviews, cartoons, and much more! Click to see ALL the benefits of membership and get a free 30-day trial that will let you read this page.

    I log in.. try and go back to the free side to red the article but I still get that message. I searched on the Pit Masters Club but cant find the article. Seems to be if its set this way, no one can read that article.

    Any help would be apprciated. Maybe my request for help shouldnt be in this post. If not, mods feel free to move to the appropriate place.


    I am getting the same error even though I have been a member for almost 1 year. So, not just you. Huskee , I think there is a problem on the Free AR site. Can you help please?


      Greetings from South Africa


        Welcome to The Pit. There are several threads where this has started happening. I'm sure they will get it cleared up.


          This is a known issue and is being actively worked on. See the last few posts in this thread:


            Welcome to the Pit from Dallas!


              See, no one taught you the secret handshake & since we’re in this corona-v thing it’s been changed to a secret sign. Sorta like that thing Obi-wan-kenobi did to people to block their vision. Ask & Huskee will tell ya about it.

                    What you've found is an exciting new feature we've developed for our members- "Members Only Recipes"! Now some of our fancier recipes are behind the membership paywall. Trouble is, it's new and there's bugs, despite our best efforts to test it before deploying [sigh...] Please bear with us, we'll get this fixed!

                    Also, please be sure you've enabled cookies on your browser, at least from us. This will help, but admittedly right now there's some tweaking needed. I have forwarded this to our IT guru for the public site, BigJim.

                      Thanks! No worries.. I just thought it was kind of strange to join and ten be blocked from seeing an article. Good luck getting it sorted!

                      “bugs” in the pit......you just let one of your secret ingredients out.....despite your best efforts


                    Huntington Beach welcomes you. Isn’t this a Ray “something” thing for fixing the computers?

                    I am sorry Ray I came up short. Story of my life.

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!

                      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.

                      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.

                      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’.

                      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.
