    Hello from SE Michigan

    Hi all. I have been visiting the AR website for a while now to read reviews etc. and as a result I am now a PBC owner. I can cook and grill, however, am new to the PBC. I appreciate the help this site has provided to me and felt compelled to support it by joining the Pit. I am in need of any tips, tricks, or other advice that can be provided, and am looking forward to mastering my new equipment.

    Welcome to the Pit


      Welcome Aboard, Munch

      Here are some excellent PBC things to read that fzxdoc put together:

        ​Welcome to The Pit Munch! SE MI sure seems to be the popular area of MI to be from. I guess I got it wrong being up north a couple hrs in central MI.... Anyway, congrats on the new PBC and thanks for the support here!

            If you've only traveled the SE part you are really missing out. Things get far prettier 'Up North'.

            If you've spent time in Grand Rapids and Cadillac you've seen some awfully pretty landscape.

          Welcome to the Pit!


            Welcome to the Pit, Munch. You have a friend here in Lake Orion.


              Welcome Munch. Where you at? I'm about 11 miles South of A2 in Milan.

              Some say Meelan. We call it MYlan.

            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!

            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.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            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.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
