    Hello from Brooklyn!

    In January we moved into an apartment with our own roof deck. The previous tenants had left an electric grill, which was pretty wimpy, but despite never having been much of an outdoor cook before I got really into it very quickly, especially with more time at home during lockdown. In May I had a big birthday and since the party I had planned wasn't going to happen my wife instead gifted me a Kamado Joe Classic, which then of course led me down the rabbit hole of briskets, ribs, reversed seared steaks, pizza, etc. and now I ended up here, so hi!

    The kamado definitely has a learning curve and my family has had to suffer through some burnt steaks and overcooked pork, but it's been fun learning about all this stuff and I'm hoping to learn more from all y'all.

    Well, welcome from south Texas! Glad you’re here! Hoping to see some rooftop grilling pics!


      Welcome~! I haven't been to Brooklyn in a few years but I fell in love with Forcella and their unique fried pizza! If you have any secret access to their meatball recipe featuring walnuts I'd love to get my hands on it-


        Welcome from Michigan (originally from Long Island)! The Pit is full of great people with lots of experience and creativity, so ask a lot of questions, post pictures, and make yourself at home!


          Welcome to the Pit from Dallas! I am a Big Green Egg guy. For me low and slow and roasting are the easiest with grilling being more challenging.


            Welcome from the California Delta. Lots of Kaamado owners here so plenty of opinions/experience.

                    Welcome from Minnesota. Enjoy The Pit.


                      Welcome to The Pit. Kamados are great for pizza I hear. Don't have one though...


                        Welcome to the Pit!


                          Welcome. I lived in Brooklyn for 30 years. Raised my daughter there. Got divorced and moved to the sticks for love. I still miss Brooklyn. I lived mostly in Bay Ridge.

                            Welcome to the Pitmaster Club! Thanks for giving us a try and for introducing yourself. You're in the right place to master that Kamado Joe and all the cuts you decide to try on it. Be sure to check out our Kamados channel for tips, tricks, and other chit chat that you may find helpful. There's also a Kamado Joe sub-channel for specifics, but you'll likely find a lot of great info in the main kamado channel as well. We hope you’ll decide to stick around!

                            Since you’re new here, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

                            2. Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam!

                              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.

                              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.
