    Hey y'all!

    I'm new here, just found the AmazingRibs site a couple weeks ago after a Google search on how to use my new WSM. I've learned a lot and figure I'd chip in my $25 to support the site so here I am!

    I've been burning meat over fire since we moved out of an apartment in 1979, mostly on a MECO Swinger. I added a gas grill maybe 10 years ago, a 2 burner CharBroil POS. Got a Weber Spirit 2-burner a couple of years ago and replaced the MECO with a Weber kettle not long after, just upgraded the Spirit to a Genesis S-320 and added a WSM (inspired by my best buddy) a couple weeks ago and I'm pretty happy with the trio.

    I think I have a mild case of GAS(Grill Acquisition Syndrome), I read Meathead's review of the PK grill and there's now a box from Arkansas sitting downstairs waiting for assembly. I need to finish the paver project outside the basement so I have a place to put it and that hasn't been easy in the weather here( "here" is lost in the NW Atlanta 'burbs). I've managed to get the area dug out and the base in, just need to add the sand and the pavers. Hopefully(if it doesn't rain too much) I'll have the patio extension finished Saturday and will fire up the PK for Sunday dinner. Wish me luck...

    In the meantime, here's a shot of the Weber hosting the Ultimate Corn on the Cob along with some Incredible Steakhouse Burgers, it would have been nice if the sky hadn't opened up and poured buckets the last 10 minutes of the cook. The corn was great, it's my second attempt at the burgers but I don't quite have that nailed yet.

    This looks like a great place to hang out, looking forward to hearing from you gals and guys. Good to meet'cha!

    Best,
    Bill

    P.S. I did a rack of ribs last weekend on the WSM using Memphis Dust, they were awesome! (if I do say so myself) Thanks to Meathead for the rub recipe and the cooking info, if you're ever down Atlanta way I owe you dinner!

          ​Welcome to The Pit billg71! SOudns like you have a great setup! And I like the GAS acronym by the way. Producing good BBQ and hanging out here produces GAS in a lot of us

          Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos.

          Hope to hear & see more from you!

            Huskee and all, thanks for the welcome! Goodtomeetcha and all that.

            As far as the GAS thing goes, I can't take any credit. I first ran into the acronym on a Martin Guiter forum where it stood for "Guitar Acquisition Syndrome", ran into it later on a photo forum where it abbreviated "Gear Acquisition Syndrome" and a refinement on another Nikon-oriented forum where it had morphed into NAS(Nikon Acquisition Syndrome). I suffer from all 4 variations, hope they aren't fatal. So far, so good since I'm still running off at the keyboard, picking guitars, burning meat and taking pictures.

            So it seemed natural here to turn it into "Grill Acquisition Syndrome", an ailment it seems most of us are suffering from.

            Thanks for the reminder and the tip to fill in my profile, I've done that since it seems I'll be hanging around for a while.

            Best to all of you and those you hold dear,
            Bill

            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


            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’.

            Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

            Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

            Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

            Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

            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.

            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!

            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.

            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.
