    May we please have a PRINT button that's aware of mobile devices and can print a recipe?

    I read email on my phone. I would like to be able to print recipes from my phone. The PRINT button you have does not work (no preview ever shows up).

    Would you please fix this. Thank you.

    Come on! Who can refuse Santa!?!

      Welcome to the Pit!

      So. When can I give you my 2020 wish list?

    I will fix it. But... where is the PRINT button at?


      Since there is no app for the site, printing is entirely a function controlled by your browser on your phone. Try a different browser. On my Android (Samsung Note 10+) using Microsoft Edge printing works as expected. This is what I seen when I press the print button on a recipe here.

        Call me simple but I think printing from a phone is bad to the bone. Maybe it's because I'm merely a spectator at this point.


          Well, as long as it's being asked. Can we have a print button that prints $20 bills with nonsequential serial numbers?

            Now, that's thinking outside of the box.

            No need to consider Rands I'll settle for the $'s.

          I use the Firefox browser on an android phone. There's no print function available in the browser itself, so without some work-around, you can't print info from any website, not just AR.

          It's not been an issue for me -- I just print from my desktop -- but I appreciate that others don't have that option or find it inconvenient.

            One can always use a browser that actually is able to print. Just saying.

            Yes, I get that. My point is maybe the OP is using Firefox for mobile and doesn't know this browser doesn't allow printing. Just trying to be helpful.

          I just printed the Maple Glazed Ribs Recipe on a HP OfficeJet Pro 6968 from my iPhone using Chrome. It worked flawlessly.

            Like this: (but note that this DOES work for me on iOS)

              Yep, I print regularly from my iPhone or iPads... And with the exception of my large format printer, they’re all wireless.

              Heck, I can even print on most of my friends printers. (I did set them up after all. LOL)

            If a recipe I like is posted by one of our members, I just copy and paste it into a word processing program ("Word" in my case) and go from there.


              Ok. Mobile devices generally do not have print functionality. Why? Not connect to a printer. No printer driver or app installed.

              But... you can share. Use the share feature to send a page to a device, email, or printer (if available).



                You can print from Chrome using your computer or mobile device. ... Print. If your wireless printer says that it's Cloud ready, follow your printer ... To print from an Android device, you'll need to set up Google Cloud Print on your Google Account.

                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.

                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.
