    New Member from Louisiana

    ​Hi, guys! I'm a newly-retired engineer from the offshore oilfield in south Louisiana. I live in Thibodaux , Louisiana which is about 45 miles SW of New Orleans. After 34 years in the oil industry, I finally have the time to devote to all my favorite interests that have been neglected for so long... and BBQ is at the top of the list. I've been doing backyard grilling for about the last 40 years but never had the time or resources to truly learn and develop any skill at it, but times have changed. Last week I ordered a new RecTec 680 and am expecting it to be delivered sometime next week.

    I've been bouncing around the internet at YouTube and different websites trying to learn correct smoking techniques and they have left me totally confused. Finally someone mentioned that Amazing Ribs.com is the place to go for anyone who is serious about BBQ. It looks like I finally found my home with you guys. I appreciate your intelligent no-nonsense approach and at the same time keeping a good sense of humor. I've got a lot to learn from you all and I hope I don't ask too many dumb questions. Thanks, fellas! I'm proud to be one of you.

    Hey man, welcome.

    Ain't been down there since college in the 90's. National Agriculture honor society convention at Nicholls.

    You ever work with anyone from Gueydan?

      Thanks, Jerod. Twenty-one years ago my office was located in Lafayette and, at that time, we had one supervisor and one clerk from Gueydan. That office has since been closed due to a merger and I lost touch with them.

      It's a small world. My house is almost directly across the bayou from Nicholls. As the crow flies, it's about 1/4 mile away.

      With a name like Broussard, you must have roots in cajunland.

          Welcome Moxy.

          This is a really friendly place - there is no such thing as a dumb question so please fire away as much as possible. Even the site experts are still learning. I highly recommend the video seminars, especially the one on salt and the one on smoke (which I need to watch again).

            Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

            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! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs


            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.

            Groundbreaking Hybrid Thermometer!

            Thermapen One Instant Read Thermometer

            The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

            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.

            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


            GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

            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.
