    Lets rethink this.

    Welcome to our site but henceforth we are going to tag you a “Kitchen Rat.” I think you can come up with something better.

    Deep apologies to all for the "extra titles" that briefly appeared under usernames. The titles were placeholders only. For use during testing only. And... the idea was scrubbed altogether. I just forgot to disable it when I updated today.

          I think you were a Spitmaster or Rib Tickler as was I. Newly joined members appeared as Kitchen Rats while a chosen few were Pit Vipers.

          Haha. Cool. I actually use a similar "rank" setting on a home brew site I run with phpBB, and the ranks go from "I wanna brew too!" for new users up to "Supreme Elite Brewer", and its all based on post count.

        I guess I missed it all, which isn't hard to do. Last night I kept getting a message that I was already logged on with a five second countdown. At the end it would go to the 'Channels' page for one second, and then I would get the message I was already logged on again. After a couple of tries I gave up and went to bed.

          RonB I realise that, obviously I couldn't post without being logged on! If it happens again tonight I'll suspect Mrs. Numb had someone write a programme to cause AR to malfunction at bedtime to force me off the computer. ;-)

          Well, Sec'y Wilbur Ross says you should just go take out a loan...and noted it was "only" 1/3 of 1% of GDP.

          More seriously, I'm really sorry to hear that. Sucks when so many innocent folks are treated as pawns. There were many years when I couldn't have even begun to last a whole month without a paycheck. I can't imagine the troubles so many have run up against.

        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:

        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.

        Click here for our article on this breakthrough tool


        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.

        Delta by Nuke,
        Stylish and Affordable
        Gaucho Grill

        Weber Genesis Grill
        Delta by Nuke burns wood or charcoal and comes with an adjustable height grill grate. This Argentinian grill will get your flame on!

        Genesis II E-335
        A Versatile Gasser That Does It All!

        Weber Genesis Grill
        Webers? Genesis line has long been one of the most popular choices for gas grillers. The new Genesis II E-335 offers solid performance, a sear burner for sizzling heat and an excellent warranty.

        GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

        grill grates
        GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

        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.
