    Pitmaster Club Gear needed

    Who would be up for some Amazing Ribs Pitmaster Club gear?

    Personally I think it would be cool to have a shirt like the one Meathead is wearing in the Bloomberg interview and bonus points if we can get our names on it too! Other gear like hats and such may be cool as well.

    I'm sure doing the BBQ accessories would be a little more problematic especially since one of the big things with this site is all of the ratings and there being a potential perceived conflict of interest. Not sure how well it would work having a Maverick 733 Pitmaster Club branded thermometer or something like that. Not sure you would want to get into design and manufacturing either.

    There are always beer koozies, tumbler glasses, stickers, decals, etc...

    I know that some competition teams have Operation BBQ Relief decals and such on their rigs or trailers to show their support or affiliation.

    Preferably it would be only for Pitmaster Club members. Yes I know I would have to pay. Yes we would all need to agree to represent the Pit with the utmost respect for BBQ and Grilling!
    And possibly most importantly, promise not to wear our gear if we have a lapse in judgement and decide to stick a beer can up a chicken's butt!

    Just throwing it out there. What do y'all think?

    The decal idea is pretty good. You guys know how to create the artwork for something like that?

        I know kirikintha does, but there has to be others as well. Let's be patient and see what ideas pop up.

        I think this idea is so good I'm going to propose we send the decal out for free to members once they renew. That will be happening for a lot of folks in July. Sound good?

            I think it'd be nice to see two decals. One that is an "Amazing Ribs" decal and one that is an "Amazing Ribs Pitmaster Club Member" decal. It'd be nice if the decal was large enough you could put it on a bumper or rear window of a car. I don't want to give too many guidelines tho as I want the really creative folks to be.... creative!

              Cool, I just thought I'd check to see how "close" to the original logo the design should be. Mind you, I don't want to change it, just a bit curious as to how creative one can be. Oh well, I'll do some sketching and see if I come up with something.
              Can I ask what font is used for the AR logo here on the forum?

                You might want to consider AmazingRibs bottle openers to mount on your grill tables too.😎

                I've got 2 mounted on my BGE table and would gladly replace them for the AR version.

                    Pit Boss ,

                    Merch Ideas:
                    • Official Pitmaster Club Shirt (like the black/red button up that Meathead has) embroidered w/name
                    • T-Shirt
                    • Decals
                    • Hats
                    • Aprons
                    • Autographed Copy of Meathead 's book that is coming out or a Pitmaster edition
                    • Beer Koozie w/ Amazing Ribs on it and possible wording of:
                      • Drink the Beer... Don't shove it up the Chicken's @$$
                      • Stuff the Beer Here not "There" (picture of chicken)
                    • BBQ tools: tongs, spatula, meat hook, brush, knife, etc...
                    • rock glass
                    • tumbler
                    • Bottle openers
                    • Branded digital thermometer
                    The list could go on... But big idea is something that we can identify other members with or that we can show our support with.

                    Just a thought!

                  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.

                  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!

Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                  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.

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'.

                  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.
