    I think June is better than May. If it were me, I'd just set the date, and let people work it out best they can. Having a fixed date would be better for those of us that have to request time off.

    You have beer. Do you have a dairy? Do you have brats? Walleye?

    There is a barbecue comp within 10 miles of LaC in early June. we have lot’s of offerings in our down town, which is where I suggest a hotel room., we have a few great restaurants, and about 80 bars in our down town. We could also do a cocktail hour in our driveway. We also have one of the absolute impressive guitar stores you will ever go in, we have microbreweries, distilleries, and so much. Looking forward

    I feel the same way. May can still be less then pleasant in May.

    I do have commitments all summer but not every weekend. Figure out a date and if it fits, I will surely be there plus one, he's not a member but lurks around when everyone is sleeping
    I'm more partial to June, weather is better and a little more stable comparatively speaking...

    Why am I not surprised.
    It's well known in Wisconsin that when you get north of HWY 8 if you get pulled over and do not have an open intoxicant, it is a $10 ticket....
    Viva Wisconsin!

    As an FYI, what we ended up finding out about in our first Texas Meat-up was DO NOT plan to cook. First of all consider this what it is, a meet and greet vacation. Although you'll have everyone committed to helping with cooking, it will invariably end up being is a hand full of folks doing the actual work while everyone else stands around sipping cold snacks. Just a word of advice, take it or leave it.

    Black99vette I saw your comment from today, and re-read your original post from Oct 4. I had an epiphany regarding 'Microsoft Teams' = 'Microsoft Meats'! They are making software that will let you not only watch the next MeatUp, but taste it as well. Even with three little ones in diapers!

    Yah, that's the joke around here. I'll stop buying kids diapers and start buying adult ones!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
