    Ads Are Not Being Blocked

    There should be no paid third party ads for mortgages, cars, weight loss, etc. or ads begging you to join the Pitmaster Club if you are a member and you are logged in. If there are, something is wrong and we need to know about it ASAP.

    When you are a member of The Pitmaster Club you must login once for us to tell your web browser you are a member and for us to kill ads. To login go to http://pitmaster.amazingribs.com

    The way we tell your browser you are a member is with a snippet of code called a cookie. If you have told your browser to block cookies, we can’t stop the ads, so you must allow cookies from AmazingRibs.com (you can block other sites).

    If you switch to a different browser, or a different computer, or a smartphone, that browser has no way of knowing you are a member, so you will need to login with that browser to get the cookie.

    Once we tell your browser that you are a member, when you visit any part of AmazingRibs.com the cookie blocks third party ads from remote servers and the nagging reminders to join The Pitmaster Club. This significantly speeds up the display of the site.

    The “Spotlight” on the right side of a desktop computer is not a paid third party ad. It is a list of products we have tested, reviewed, and given a top award to, and strongly recommend. This reader service comes from our server so it doesn’t slow page loading.

    We make one exception, and that is the ads for our book and our rubs & sauce, but that also comes from our server and doesn’t slow page loading at all. We hope you will forgive us for allowing these to show. Remember, we don't have a big corporate parent. We need the money.

    You can tell your browser that cookies from amazingribs.com are permitted. It's easy. Here are some links to browser help docs:

    Chrome: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/61416?hl=en
    Safari: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH17191...S&locale=en_US
    Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...d-unblock-them
    IE: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...-allow-cookies

    Sometimes people have ad blockers or virus software installed on their browser, a firewall installed on their WIFI, or even a setting on your internet service provider dashboard that blocks cookies. If you do, tell them to make an exception for pitmaster.amazingribs.com and try to login again. A way to test is to try another computer, another browser, another device, or try logging in with your phone using cell data and not WIFI or go to a Starbucks or a neighbor’s house.

    If you have logged in and you are not blocking cookies, and you continue to see third party ads, something is wrong. You may need to clear our cookies from your browser first, then re-enable them, and log in again. Click this link to clear our cookies: https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/pit-cookies-reset.php.

    If this still doesn't help, let us know ASAP. Send an email to the pit boss at [email protected]

Grilla Proves That Good Things Come In Small Packages

The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint of the Grilla Pellet Smoker makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, including on a condo patio. Click here for our review on this unique smoker.

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. Click here for more about what makes this grill special.

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. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado. Click here to read our detailed review of the PK 360 and get a special AmazingRibs.com price!

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. 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. Click here for our review of this superb smoker.
