    tmaan235. Thank you for your generosity of offering to help at such a thing. I was however referring to the Midwest meat up being at my house on Thanksgiving, but, it would be cool to cook a bbq for a shelter, I’m hoping to do one myself this winter, for one of our warming centers,

    Mr. Bones, yer just a little too far west and south for Milwaukee from where I am. But if I was going through your area, you wouldn't need a thumb
    Richard, if this happens I'm all about spending a day at the local soup kitchen to serve...
    Huskee, don't know your itinerary but once you get past the cheddar curtain and are actually in Wisconsin if your travels cause you to hotel in milawaukee, look me up, I can be a good guide for local entertainment and a few home brewed bbq joints.

    I've been told that most states around Wisconsin have about 2500 liquor licenses per state. Supposedly Wisconsin has over 13,000 licenses. There are LOTS of little "one horse" taverns out in the middle of Nowhere Wisconsin.

    Donw Generous, absolutely. the “great cook”, you’re throwing that word “great” around a bit loosely. We could all go down to our city’s soup kitchen and then help make and serve the free community thanksgiving dinner,

    There was a time LC sported more bars per capita then anywhere. And, yes the town got its name after the sport.

    La Crosse? Geeze, I'm just over an hour from there. Nice town -- all the amenities without being a big city.

    Several breweries in town -- Pearl Street Brewery, City Brewery, 608 Brewery, and others. The La Crosse Distilling Co makes rye whiskey, gin, and vodka.

    Harmony, MN, about an hour away has Harmony Distilling and a super little eatery called Estelle's. Hillsboro WI is not far away from LaX and is tucked away in one of the prettiest regions of Wisconsin. Hillsboro has the Hillsboro Brewery with some excellent brews and there's a nice cheese store within walking distance of the brewery.

    I’ll plan the Meatup for you Midwesterners. A week from tomorrow at Richard Chrz ‘s house. Dinner starts at 2 PM and all you need to bring is a big appetite and your favorite beverages. We all know Richard is a great cook and very, very generous. You will all have a great time. Family, extended family and hitchhikers are all welcome. 🙂

    Late May works for me, mid-May works better. But it's not about me. If we really want to get this planned, please PM me and let's get this set up. I am 80-90% sure I can do this. I am not 100%.

    Let's put in a vote for Madison or something further east!

    Any progress on this? I am interested, especially if I can pick up FireMan on the way. I would take the car ferry (SS Badger) from Ludington MI across Lake Michigan to Manitowoc WI, the wife & I have always wanted to do this anyway, been looking for a good reason. (and a tax-deductible reason fits the bill!). Trouble is, La Crosse is 4hrs from there. Not impossible, but if a further east city is an option I am all ears. I can also bring whatever cooker(s) will fit in my truck under the tonneau. Not that I want to cook. I want to sit and sip and laugh. Fireman knows how I roll.

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!

Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award.

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.

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.
