The AmazingRibs.com Pitmaster Club

In 10 years AmazingRibs.com has gone from a hobby to one of the largest and most popular food websites in the world with thousands of pages and four full-time employees. Thank you!!!!

So in 2014 we faced two problems and found one solution for them both.

We wanted to have a real barbecue community, a place where people got to know each other, carry on conversations, share tips and recipes, even restaurant and equipment reviews, even buy and sell equipment.

We also were having trouble making ends meet. It is hard to deliver 1,000 plus pages of high quality recipes, technique, and product reviews on advertising revenue, especially with ad rates declining all over the internet.

We thought about charging admission and we thought about accepting intrusive ads. Instead, we decided on The Pitmaster Club.

Join our Pitmaster Club for just $23.95 per year, and you'll get: A new improved Comprehensive Food Temperature Guide Magnet that sells for $9.95 on Amazon.com; live video seminars with the world's top pitmasters; a welcome into the community we call The Pit; entry into the Gold Medal Giveaways with impressive valuable prizes; support for Operation BBQ Relief; and support for AmazingRibs.com!

You can cancel at any time, and if you cancel in the first 90 days you'll get your money back. That's called a no risk deal. Who else offers a 90 day money back guarantee? The Pitmaster Club is for all cooks, from weekend warriors to serious competitors. It is a great way to take your cooking to the next level and the best way to help us grow.

Please read this before posting a comment or question

grouchy?1) Please use the table of contents or the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help, then please post your question on the appropriate page.

2) Please tell us everything we need to know to answer your question such as the type of cooker and thermometer you are using. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you. Please read this article about thermometers.

3) If you post a photo, wait a minute for a thumbnail to appear. It will happen even if you don't see it happen.
