    Howdy Fired up Folks

    Grew up around South Texas BBQ pits. My uncle was a butcher in small town and had partnership with beer joint next to his shop that had a big 20 ft square stone pit with huge iron lids on pulleys out back. Mostly fired with oak and mesquite.. Rows of chicken, sausage, brisket, pork would be in the pit every day. In bar area, the only light was from the neon beer signs with saw dust on the floor to soak up the spilled beer and the dirt that came off the working mans' boots. Most popular place for miles around. Spent career in Army, overseas tours mostly in Germany hence my user name. Living in Northern Virginia now. Have WSM 22 Smoker and red Weber Kettle 22" which is about 21 yrs old. Thought Meathead's book was great which led me here to Amazing Ribs. If you have some favorites areas of this website be glad to hear about it.

    Herzlich willkommen. Mostly I use the "recent posts" search, and probably spend more time in the Show Us What You're Cooking thread than anywhere else.

    Welcome from Wisconsin. Glad you could join us!

    I don't really have a "favorite" section on this side, so can't really recommend one spot or another, but I always enjoy this thread when it pops up.

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.
