    Information Cards

    I was in Home Depot today looking for a 30# Propane bottle for the 5th wheel and was told they were in the BBQ section which they were not, But there was a couple there looking at BBQ's so I introduced myself and asked if I could help as I do have some limited knowledge, they were happy that I did and advised they didn't have a clue on what to buy, I mentioned the Kettle was a good option but recommended the visit AmazingRibs.com and explained what the benefits were and how my cooking was improved, they thanked me with a smile on their faces and headed out the door. Possible saved them some money, frustration, and another viewer for the site.

    For times like this, it would be nice to have an information card the size of a business card that we could print out on business card stock, I know I have a pile of it laying around and I know I could just make one, but I don't think it is my place, an official format from Meathead would be nice. Carry On.

    Thank you!!!! What an interesting idea! I would be happy to print some cards the size of biz cards for people who want to hand them out (they have a meat color chart on the back side). We are also giving away 4 x 5 temp charts, not as complete as the one you got, with a promo for the site and the book on the back. We are trying to get them into BBQ stores and BBQ restaurants. Email me your address and I'll have some biz cards made up and send them to you. I'm [email protected]

      Meathead,@JohnF, John must be in Marketing and if it wasn't a One Time Offer Meathead you can put my name
      On a few of those Cards also I would like to purchase some of the 4x5 temp charts! One word of Caution Meathead, I used to have one those Jobs driving arround the Country with a Trunk Load of Caps and Belt Buckles! If you gave the Bas---d a Cap, he wanted a Belt Buckle, and if you added a Buckle to the Pile of Loot, the Cheap SOB'S WOULD WANT YOU TO THROW IN A PAIR OF BOOTS? Now you have been forewarned

    So I've talked to people and thunk about this for a while and printing and mailing cards to members would be cost prohibitive. So I thought I could supply you with a pdf template that is compatible with Avery business card stock available in all office supply stores and online. I agonized over all kinds of clever things to put on it, and I ended up with something very simple and boring (jpg attached). It would be fun to put some sort of motto on it. Anybody have an ideas?

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      the good one grill
      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.

      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
      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 Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      NK-22-Ck Grill
      Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
