    Pitmaster Club member - still have adverts...

    I can't find anything stating such, but I guess I thought a benefit of being a paid member would be an ad-free experience on *.amazingribs.com

    I use Chrome on Windows 7, I had to turn off my AdBlock plugin @ http://pitmaster.amazingribs.com so some of the cool features of vBulletin would work correctly.

    Are there any thoughts toward making the site ad-free for paid members?

    Thank you!

    Welcome Kris, sorry the ads bother you. I have got a lot from them as they are cook related. The site isn't perfect but it is light years ahead of most forum sites.


      I absolutely love the site & The Pit.
      The #1 problem I have with adverts: they are space hogs in my browser windows.


        Yea, I hear you. you need to get a 27" hi res monitor and size your text accordingly. Just kidding!! So Kris what kind of BBQ equipment do you have and are using? What part of the world do you live in? I look forward to discussing BBQ and cooking with you.


          Kris if you narrow the size of your browser the ads will disappear. As far as why the ads remain, check out MH's article. http://amazingribs.com/meathead/how_...ibs_works.html


            I have adblock on in my Firefox browser. It blocks all 3rd party ads, except for the Smokenator, Thermapen, Grigllgrates, etc ones that Meathead has placed here as recommended accessories to the immediate right. I see none of the others at any time. When I access on my phone, which has no adblock, the ads are there- Honda, Alaskan Brewing Co., Google, etc. Like Pit Boss says just shrink your browser or turn on an adblock.

            Meathead never has any ads encroach into the editorial section of The Pit or even his 1000+ free pages on the main site AmazingRibs.com, there's a clear separation of adspace and content. He has it setup the best way possible for the best experience for all of us. Enjoy!

              Excellent reading, thanks David - that's exactly what I was looking for when I was wondering about the adverts.

                Thanks Kris. I'm glad you understand! We're working hard to take care of our members and "up our game"!

              I think the adverts are well done, and not intrusive at all... I get this one, from time to time and don't mind at all

            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!

            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.

            3 burner gas grill

            The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

            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.

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.

            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.
