    New to full time charcoal griller

    Hi Fellas

    New to the Charcoal and Smoking scene, use to only use gas, My arsenal for grilling consist of a Americana Walk-A-Bout Portable Grill for now that’s all they had at Home Depot on 4th of July but surprise it gets the job done, also just got a Pit Barrel Cooker and hoping to cook my first ribs tomorrow. I came across this website from reddit and I hope to learn a lot more as I am now a full paid member.

    Thank you

      Also, it's very important that you:

      Give us an email address you actually use. You can check the email we have on file for you by clicking your name in the upper-right, then User Settings, then the Account tab. It’s tied to your Pitmaster Club account as well as our payment processor, Stripe. Don’t worry though, you can change it by simply visiting https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/pi...il-request.php

      Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam! This is important so you can receive special deals we occasionally work out for our members, receive notices about your account, such as if you’re up for renewal or are ever drawn as our monthly Great Giveaway Monthly Sweepstakes winner, which is open to all paying USA members or those with a USA delivery address (we’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us)!

                    Welcome to the Pit from Dallas! This year may be different, but August is usually the month that stores put grills on close out pricing.

                      Alphatrex, keep an eye on the used market around you. Depending on which Weber you are looking for, with some patience, you can save a significant money buying pre enjoyed,

                        A lot to read and understand but works great once you have the knowledge. Just a few quick tips. I do ribs all the time, double hook for safety, St Louie or babbybacks usually take about 3 hours so forget the 3-2-1 one thing on the PBC. Most important thing is to get your fire started correctly. This barrel likes to run around 280*. Don't try to get it down to 225*. New barrels usually leak around the lid. This is normal until you build up a nice layer of soot. Put a couple of bricks on the lid.

                        One last thing. You know when ribs are done? I look for the meat pulled back from the end of the bone and when I probe the meat between the bones with a toothpick it should go in nice and smooth, like melted butter. Enjoy!
