    Is it just me? Even so...

    I started using amazing ribs.com for the recipes and for the how-to info. I liked it so much that when it started selling memberships I became a charter member. The stuff is valuable to me.
    I still come here for the recipes and info, but now when I arrive I get a pop up asking me to join the pitmaster club. So I sign in. But after I sign in I have to "click here to go to the public side for the recipes".
    Maybe I should just let the membership go and endure the popups.
    I know, I know, it isn't about me. Just saying what I think.

    Certainly your call, but I like the camaraderie and the help and tips in the pit as well as the main site. Not to mention the food pics. If you don’t like that, I am not sure I would use only to get rid of the ads.

      Have you tried bookmarking "Today's Posts". That's what I do and I have no problems.

        I'm just not that into the social side. I realize you can learn a lot from other's experiences and I appreciate that. I don't know, the membership is a given. It isn't a big deal, and simply bookmarking a page past the entrance is a good idea.

            Well, I haven't been using my Facebook account, but I know I posted all of the pics of the little guys on my deck getting fed at my Facebook account. We had two groups fledged from the backyard this year but I can't get them to come feed like I did a few years ago.

          Greetings philneel

          You should not see the ads or popups on the main site once you are logged in here.

          I double checked your account and verified that all is well.

          If you are still seeing the popup. you can try clearing your Pitmaster and AmazingRibs cookies.

          I created a function to do that for you (so you do not have to clear all cookies on your browser).

          https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/pit-cookies-reset.php

          This will only clear Pitmaster and AmazingRibs cookies.

          You will have to login again after using it.

          Also, many other things can interfere with cookies.

          Browser plugins that block ads, and "tracking" cookies could be the problem (as pitmaster.amazingribs.com and amazingribs.com use the same cookies).

            Thanks for the attention. I took RonB's advice and started using a different bookmarked address and staying logged in. I guess I'm just not keeping up with changes.

        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

        slow n sear
        The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

        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 Undisputed Champion!

        thermapen
        The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        Grilla pellet smoker
        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.

        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

        PK 360 grill
        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

        kareubequ bbq 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.

        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 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.
