    Meet Our Editor, Dave

    Meet David Joachim, our new Editor effective 9/1. No, I am not retiring, I just have finally come to grips with the fact that I am not getting the job(s) done and that I need help. David will start out with cleaning up the many typos and helping make our articles read better, writing short synopses for many articles, editing new content coming online, writing new articles, syndicating our content, and just making us look and sound more polished. Your support has made this great new addition to the team possible. Here's the official release:

    David Joachim (sounds like rock ‘em) has authored, edited, or collaborated on more than 45 cookbooks, four of them on barbecue and grilling, and his Food Science column has appeared in Fine Cooking magazine since 2011. He’s a perfect match for a website dedicated to the “Science of Barbecue and Grilling.”

    His credits include The Food Substitutions Bible and The Science of Good Food, both winners of International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) Awards. The Science of Good Food also won a World Gourmand Award for Best Food Literature Book, a Cordon D'Or Award for Best Culinary Reference Book, and was a finalist for a James Beard Award in the Best Reference and Scholarship category.

    His "A Man, A Can..." series of books has sold more than one million copies (and no, they’re not about beer can chicken). Among his many other titles are The Tailgater's Cookbook and Pure Pork Awesomeness, co-authored with Top Chef fan favorite Kevin Gillespie. His books Mastering the Grill, a New York Times bestseller, and the recent Williams-Sonoma Grill School were both co-authored with award-winning cooking teacher Andrew Schloss. He also helped edit the IACP Award finalist Meathead: The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling.

    His writing and tips have appeared in national publications such as USA Today, Better Homes & Gardens, Cook's Illustrated, Relish, Prevention, Fitness, Self, Men's Health, Women’s Health, and Bicycling. He has made numerous national appearances on television and radio.

    Since high school, Joachim has also enjoyed a second life as a drummer in various blues and rock bands in the New York City and Philadelphia areas. He has performed in several New York City clubs such as The Village Gate, The Bitter End, The China Club, Le Bar Bat, and Mercury Lounge, among others.

    He is also the former food editor at Vegetarian Gourmet magazine, but please don't call him Potatohead.

                    Welcome aboard, David. Watch out for Meathead ... his "B" and "Q" keys tend to stick ... not sure if it's a mechanical problem or just excessive sauce ..

                          Welcome David. We won't hold the Vegeterian Gourmet thing against you, since we're all slurping meat eaters here, but you knew that coming in. Looking forward to you straightening things out for ussin's. Work hard, eat good & have fun, we do.

                              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!

                              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.

                              Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker


                              Green Mountain’s portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.

                              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                              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.

                              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.
