    *NEW MEMBERS: Here's Your Homework Assignment

    Welcome to the Pitmaster Club Forum fondly called The Pit! To help things run smoothly and make sure you get the most out of our great and ever-expanding community here, we've compiled some things for you to do as your time permits. I like to call this your homework assignment. The red words are links, please click them & they'll take you to a relevant post.

    Read the User Manual. It should answer all your questions and show you how to use this forum. Many new members are puzzled by the navigation system because they are used to standard websites where the publishers are talking AT you. In this forum, we are talking WITH you so the design has to be different.

    Especially, read "Navigation And How The Pitmaster Club Forum Is Structured". The Pit is big, with many channels and sub-channels. It can be overwhelming at first. This post details how to navigate around in The Pit.

    Introduce Yourself. Tell us as much or as little as you'd like to share. Some things to put in it might be your location, your cooking expertise or lack thereof, favorite things to BBQ, what you'd like to master, etc. The location is handy, there are probably others nearby and sometimes they do Meat-Ups. If you prefer to remain in the shadows that's cool too. Everything here is voluntary. List your grills, smokers, and your digital thermometers. This will help all of us understand your perspective when you ask questions or offer advice. Favorite beer could be good too! Signatures are not a promotional opportunity. If you put your website or blog in your signature, it would be nice if your website or blog reciprocated with a link to AmazingRibs.com.

    Make sure you get our emails! Add this email address to your contacts list so our emails don't go to spam @amazingribs-com. WE DO NOT SEND SPAM! You want to know if you win our monthly Great Giveaways worth up to $2000 and we notify winners via email.You will want to read "HOT from the Pit", our monthly email newsletter to members with important announcements. You will also want to read "Smoke Signals" our email to the public, and you will want to read DigestThis with food news from farm to fork.

    There are many other helpful posts in this Help channel too, please check them all out. Many of your initial how-to FAQs can be answered there. If they're not, post your question in the proper channel and someone will gladly help you out.

These are not ads or paid placements. These are some of our favorite tools and toys.

These are products we have tested, won our top awards, and are highly recommend. Click here to read how we test, about our medals, and what they mean.

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


Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

3 burner gas grill

The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

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’.

Groundbreaking Hybrid Thermometer!

The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

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.

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.
