    Greetings from overseas!

    Hi everybody!

    Now that i finally have a decent grill on order i thought it was about time to join up. AmazingRibs has provided me with some very good reading so I'm more than happy to fork over the cash.

    As the boss of my household is sort of restrictive on the size and amount of gear i keep I'll be experimenting with a 22,5" Weber for grilling and smoking. Expect gadgets, tinkering and a bit of fabrication later on. I have a little bit of experience with cheap offsets, mini smoke boxes, uppright smokers and at least a decent understanding of cooking in general but until now have never had the space for a half-decent setup of my own.

    Actually, as I'm waiting for my kettle to arrive I must surely be the only member without any kind of grill or smoker!
    Such a meaningless existence.

    Welcome Josef! Nice job on your signature and nice lineup of equipment. It looks like that list really needs a Slow 'N Sear for the 22" Weber though!

    Glad to have you here, and 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.

    Also, it's very important that you add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list in case you are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner!

    Hope to hear & see more from you!


      Welcome aboard, I do all of my Q on a plain old low tech Weber One Touch and I am now revered as the BBQ god in my social circle, long live being a BBQ Luddite*!

      * Besides the digital thermometer and Party Q of course.


        Welcome Aboard Josef


          Welcome to the Pit Josef!


            Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

            I felt the Smokenator was such a given i didn´t even look for alternatives. The Slow 'N Sear actually looks even better so shame on me for not keeping up with the gadgets while on my grill/smoking hiatus.

            Otoh the heavy Slow ´n sear would be a LOT more expensive with shipping and import duties as the Smokenator is available locally.

            The funny thing is that before i even knew about the The Slow 'N Sear I already envisioned mounting an extra plate to the side of the Smokenator as a radiant heat shield and cutting up the top to join the holes together in order to be able to sear better without dumping the coals out.


              Welcome! Can tell you're overseas by your comma. Do you guys still say twenty-two point five?

                No, we still say fifty-seven.
                I´m trying to conform to American standards but it looks like I´ll have to try harder to fit in.
