    My Introduction

    I have been viewing this website for a few weeks now and like what I see. I started in the business of smoking meats when I was only 7 years old, I'm 75 now. I spent every Saturday of the year and most days of the week during summer break working in my fathers sausage and smoked meats factory in Cleveland, Ohio. At age 12, I was deemed worthy to clean the large walk in smoke house every Saturday....dirty job but it paid well and allowed me to buy whatever candy I wanted.

    I live in the Pacific N.W. and smoke allot of salmon. I smoke pork ribs regularly( did a rack yesterday), as well as Pork shoulder, and brisket. I will be making corned beef/pastrami in the next week or so. I have also made lox and smoked cheese in the past.

    I started with a Little Chief smoker and used it for about 40 years...actually went through about 5 of them. I have been using a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker for the past 10-12 years. I have included a pic of my set up on a cart. "Have smoke will travel". I look forward to learning new cool smoking stuff on this forum

                              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


                              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.

                              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.

                              With the ability to monitor up to six temperatures simultaneously with either Bluetooth or Wifi on your mobile phone, tablet, or computer, Fireboard is the best digital thermometer we’ve tested.

                              kamado grill
                              Built around SnS Grill’s patented Slow ‘N Sear charcoal kettle accessory, this 22-inch kamado is a premium ceramic grill that brings true 2-zone cooking to a kamado.

                              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’.

                              Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                              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.

                              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.
