    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 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 ad for our book, "Meathead, The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling”, but that also comes from our server and doesn’t slow page loading at all. We hope you will forgive us for allowing this one ad 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. Let us know ASAP. Send an email to the pit boss at [email protected]
