    Annual Conference ???

    Hello everyone, as you probably know I have only been around less than a month and I really like this site. Is is possible that maybe one day we have an AmazingRibs.com Annual Conference? I can't think of a better word than conference but I just know there is one. Would that be fun? Meet, break bread, Q, drink and enjoy. Maybe some of the vendors would show up and bring their wares. If no one wants this then you will not hurt my feelings it is just a thought and maybe a long way off.

            Florida is a scorcher in July. Humidly it terrible. The only reason people come here is so they can stand neck deep in the water.

              Wow, 23 is COLD for FL. It's 19 at my place right now.
              23 in FL is like MI hitting 100s+ in summer. It happens, but it makes the news when it does.

              it's really cold here in Canada right now, and where I live is getting hit with about 3 - 4 inches of snow all day today. Driving into work this morning was not pleasant.

            This should go in the member meetings channel. We've talked about having get togethers, but it's still very early stages. I'm very interested to see where this goes.

              I like the idea of regional and national even better. That way start small and see what it takes to put one on. And also folks that could not make national because of distance could possibly make regional.

            #12
            The logistics of running a National event are very large. I would recommend having some local events first.. Call them "Pit Nation GTG's" (Get ToGethers). They could be at someones home and just get some guys together to cook and share ideas. Then if they are successful you could expand them to State, Regional, or National events. I am thinking of having one at my place after the first of the year. It will be open to all that want to come. Hopefully there won't be more than about 20 folks that come as that is about all my place can support.

              My thoughts exactly. But it would be nice to have a national Meat-Up...

              That would be great Smarkley. I was also thinking that it would be nice to see some other grills/smokers that what I have so I will encourage some of those coming to bring their equipment if possible. For some just making the trip will be all they can do which is understandable.

            Being that the Holiday's are upon us I was thinking the middle of January is as early as I could get something together. Say like the the weekend of 17 January.

              Barry, not sure I can come that early but we are planning to go the Alpharetta soon after the holidays. Might work though. I would give it my best shot.

              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.

              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 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.

              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.

              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’.
