    Agreed. The good news is simple awareness like this post will help posters learn and adjust.

    Guilty myself. Well said Robert. I can do better also.

    Well said. Hits me right between the "holier than thou" eyes that I have sometimes expressed and will really strive to be more aware of the world The Pit embraces.

    You're right. Some do forget that we are international. Not even all of our IT folks are American. We are "Earth's Favorite BBQ Website". Not limited to America.

    I signed up to The Pit when I was living in the US. I didn't and don't really care about the sweepstakes -- that's not why I joined. I joined for the quality of information and interaction.

    That said, I sometimes find the number and degree of US-specific opinions expressed here, um, uncomfortable. Some posters seem to forget that the love of food and cooking is international, as is our membership. Some of us weren't "Made in America" and although we may be veterans, we're not veterans of the US military; and although we may have opinions on American policies and governance, we usually manage not to inject them into our posts on food and cooking.

    I didn’t even know we offered prizes here until a month after I joined.

    I read the rules and came in with my eyes open, no big deal I'm not going to benefit from these draws.
    If you need a new Q that badly start a #gofundme page.

    I should point out that we're not a sweepstakes company and we're not a lottery website whose purpose is to offer prizes.

    We're a BBQ & cooking website with 1000s of free pages of recipes, reviews, science & mythbusting, with a membership division that offers what we feel is a great (and continually expanding) array of benefits to our members who support us, including a sense of community and fellowship here in our forum, The Pit. If someone walks into a party, guns blazing, it's likely to expect some other partygoers to not appreciate that and come to the party-thrower's aid.

    One extra benefit, to those on the same chunk of dirt as we are, is that we can legally offer prizes here that we can't legally offer our dear members who live across borders, for the reasons outlined in our rules section and highlighted above. Not because we don't want to, and certainly not because our American members are better or more valuable. It's an add-on that we think makes this place even more fun, it is not anyone's focus of this here Pitmaster Club, hopefully.

    I agree. It gets a little tiresome reading lectures, usually from the same few people who seem to think they own the place, about what constitutes a "good member" of this forum. Perhaps we could quantify just how many posts one must make in order to be considered a member in good standing?

    As someone who lives down under and in the same country as you I can assure you. You will not find a better BBQ site to help you with your cooking skills. I have been a member for 6 years here..

    There is a great group of regular posters here who welcome newcomers. (Even Kiwi's

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


Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

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.

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!
