    Press Release Sneak Peek: Our Top 12 Picks For 2021's Best New BBQ & Grilling Products

    You first! Here we'll post news, gear reviews, videos, and recipes that are freshly published on the public site before getting advertised there! To see all our NEW Recipes & Gear Reviews, visit the Sneak Preview channel here: https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...ew-for-members

    AmazingRibs.com, "by far the leading resource for BBQ and grilling information" according to Forbes, has just announced its list of the "2021 AmazingRibs.com Best New BBQ & Grilling Products." This year’s winners were selected from hundreds of products tested, reviewed, and rated by the team of full-time professionals at AmazingRibs.com, drawing from an extensive product review database of over 800 grills, smokers, thermometers, and tools.

    The top 12 picks this year reflect two notable trends in the BBQ and grilling industry: more BBQ on the go and an ever-expanding variety of live fire cooking equipment.

    "Much of the innovation we’ve seen this year reflects the fact that, due to COVID-19, so many families are taking road trips for vacation instead of getting on an airplane," says Clint Cantwell, SVP of Whatever for AmazingRibs.com. "The recreational vehicle industry, including RV sales and occupancy at RV parks and resorts, has seen extraordinary growth since early 2020, and now BBQ and grill manufacturers are bringing out more and better products for those who are cooking on the go."

    Outdoor cooks looking to get creative with live fire have an ever more diverse array of options, too. Whether it’s combination camping grills and firepits like the tripod-mounted Burch Barrel or Santa Maria-style wood burning grills like the Ñuke Puma from Argentina, 2021 saw the launch of some impressive new innovations for backyard chefs.

    Here are all 12 of AmazingRibs.com’s picks for 2021’s Best New BBQ & Grilling Products.


    Weber Traveler (MSRP $349)


    Portable Kitchen PKGO Camp and Tailgate Grilling System (MSRP $350)

    Burch Barrel (MSRP $985)

    The annual Best New BBQ & Grilling Product Awards are spearheaded by Max Good, AmazingRibs.com’s Keeper of the Flame. Good is the only person in the world whose full-time job is testing, researching, reviewing, and rating grills and smokers.

    Max Good and Clint Cantwell are available for interviews to discuss this year’s winners and the latest trends in BBQ & grilling equipment.

      Is the initial link in your post supposed to be accessible or is that the one that will appear when it goes live for the public? I received a 404 (which I kind of enjoyed seeing).
