    A couple suggestions

    Hey meathead and admins, thanks for the amazingtibs.com website! I'm sure you've put in a lot of work for both the content and the administration. Just wanted to mention a couple quick things I've noticed as a newbie here. 1) Update Messages number: When I see the number appear next to the "Messages" link at the top, I click on it to get to the Messages page and then click on the specific link to get to the updated thread, but the number at the top stays the same. I have to go back into Messages and "Delete" the notification. Interestingly, this still doesn't update the number at the top until I refresh or navigate to another page. It would be nice if the number updated as soon as you view the updated thread or at least when you delete the notification without having to refresh. 2) Navigate to updated post: When I click on a notification that someone's replied to my post in a thread, I'm taken to the first post in the thread and then I have to navigate to the reply. It'd be nice if I was taken directly to the reply or at least to my post. 3) Different navigation styles: The site navigation layout is different depending on whether you're viewing the content pages or the message board. It'd be nice if the navigation was consistent and seamless between these areas so I wouldn't have to reorient myself. 4) Mobile usability: I've mentioned this briefly before but there are some issues with the mobile implementation (inserting pics into posts, strange editing behavior, etc.) It sounds like you're aware of these and I'm sure it's a work-in-progress, but I wouldn't mind having the ability to view the non-mobile version of the message board. The browsers on our mobile devices should be able to render sites exactly the same as viewing on the desktop and it would afford me all the behaviors and functionality I'd expect. Hope those make sense! No biggies, just wanted to provide feedback.

    Eugene your gripes are ours. We're hoping a lot of the things you've pointed out are improved when we upgrade to the latest version of vBulletin. This is on our to do list, it's just not at the top yet. Stay tuned!

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.

    Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

    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!

    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.

    Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

    We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

    Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

    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’.
