    Yup! I'm glad you posted this, it adds a great perspective. Many people are used to simple blogs (of which we are not) that don't have big costs and therefore little to zero ads. I HATE the videos that auto-play, it is beyond frustrating and often leads me to exit out of that site w/o further reading or pageviews.

      I hear ya on the auto-play videos. The worst, in my experience, is the NFL app for iPad. It auto-plays every single video and even has a pop-up for other videos. It takes 3 clicks and going to another screen to turn them off. This is especially bad for me, as I regularly check the app while at work. I can’t have my boss hearing these videos and knowing that I’m slacking off on the clock! C’MON MAN!!!

    Huskee And one more thing...did ya see that guy’s ribs in my bottom picture? The first picture looked ok I guess, but he pulled em a little too early if ya ask me, hardly any meat had pulled back from the bone. But, that bottom pic of the ribs after being sliced..... the rib meat was white inside! I mean, it looked like burnt chicken breasts. Our guys and gals here at AR can smoke circles around those smoked meats.com people.

      Sumthin tells me that was likely an electric smoker or gas grill.

      Sounds like you got a virus or trojan or something throwing random stuff at you. None of us here have popups.

      I was only kidding. I saw the post and your response. I thought what ads do I see in the wee hours of the morning?

    Yeah, no popups here. And I have popups explicitly enabled for AmazingRibs.com in my Safari browser settings.

        Hawaiian shirts CAN be BBQ related. Depending on your personal style of course. Here in Florida (or Hawaii) they can be worn year round. In Minnesota? Yea. Might want to only wear them in the 3 or 4 days yall call "summer"

          I've worn them year round in the upper midwest; sometimes under a parka.

        To be fair I remember a similar experience on Amazingribs.com before paying for a membership.

            Does it? How do they make money? Only two options are possible. Number one, you pay for a subscription. Number two YOU are the product!

            There is also a third option. Some insanely rich person funds it, and expects nothing at all in return.

            SmokeyGator Advertising: DuckDuckGo’s traffic is shown Sponsored Links (including !bangs). So whether you have them enabled or not, you can continue to feel that the open source DuckDuckGo Browser is a useful tool that respects both your privacy and your time.
            Affiliates: DuckDuckGo relies on affiliates as well. When people click on affiliate links, they are directed to Amazon, eBay etc. DuckDuckGo will only generate revenue based on relevance, and, only if, you make a purchase.

          Pro tip: When you are dragged to family events and get bored, if their computer is unlocked you can spend an hour or so looking up disturbing things.

          Then secretly laugh when they start questioning why they are suddenly being flooded with ads for furry conventions, flashlight like devices that ARE NOT flashlights, and so on.

            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!

            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’.

            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.

            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.
