    Hello from central Iowa

    Been reading this site for a long time, and got a lot of helpful hints. I started with a water bath smoker, graduated up to an offset, now I'm part of the Pit Barrel club. Just cooked ribs and chicken this weekend, and I think this one is a keeper. Wow, is it easy.

    Anyway, joined the Pitmaster club, because of all the information I've gotten from this site. Thanks and keep up the good work!

    Welcome, the PBC is a fun little cooker. I drove through Iowa once for a wedding, it has just as much elevation and corn as they say.

              I tried Google this AM to see how many Air Miles from Fargo, ND to Sydney AUS., they said I couldn't get there from here? Dan

            Ha ha, we're both quite late on saying hello to some of these folks. You're new here, but what's my excuse?

            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


            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

            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.
