    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).

  • 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)

    Hasty Bake Gourmet PRO 258 (MSRP $1,900)


    Ñuke Puma (MSRP $2,999)


    Weber Summit Kamado E6 and S6 Charcoal Grills (MSRP $1,149 & $1,949)

    Z Grills 450B Pellet Grills (MSRP $500)


    Kalamazoo Shokunin Kamado (MSRP $6,495)


    Cuisinart Griddler Five (MSRP $120)


    ThermoWorks Thermapen ONE (MSRP $105)

    SNS-500 Wireless Remote Thermometer (MSRP $80)

    SmartFire Pro 5 Thermostatic Controller (MSRP $290)

    In addition to these winners, AmazingRibs.com has awarded Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals to hundreds of products in its expansive searchable databases of ratings and reviews, which includes products we have rated “Not Recommended” to help readers avoid inferior options.

    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.

Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

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! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs

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.

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.

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.
