The Easiest Way To See What’s Happening In The Food World

Go There Now

At AmazingRibs.com, our love of food goes way beyond barbecue. If you’ve poked around the site, you know that we are dedicated to explaining the science of barbecue, and that food science applies to all kinds of cooking. If you’ve seen all our recipes for side dishes, you know that we love food in all its forms. And we try to read, watch, listen, and learn as much as we can to stay informed about what’s happening in the world of food in general, especially in the world of outdoor cooking. To share all the cool food news we find, we started an entirely new service, DigestThis.news. Best of all, it’s completely FREE!

The DigestThis.news Bulletin is a free weekly rundown of topline food news delivered to your inbox in one easy-reading email. It provides much-needed information on all aspects of the food world, including cooking, beverages, restaurants, delivery services, grocery stores, government regulations, agriculture, science, publishing, and more. Every story is delivered in a quick summary with a link to the orginal article, so if the story piques your interest, you can read on for a deeper dive. All of the news stories are archived on the companion website DigestThis.newswhich is completely searchable.

Both the newsletter and website are edited by our own editor Dave Joachim, a 30-year veteran food journalist and award-winning cookbook author, including 5 books on barbecue. Dave reads all the important food newsletters, newspapers, magazines, blogs, social media, and more, so you don’t have to. Just read his summaries and you’ll get the gist of the story. The New York Times recently featured DigestThis.news in a prominent story in the Sunday Food section, so we think Dave’s doing a pretty good job.

Check out DigestThis.news and let us know what you think. If you like it, subscribe to the free newsletter. Only an email address is needed to get the newsletter delivered to you. Then you stay up on all the important stuff going on in the world of barbecue and the wider world of food.

Millions come to AmazingRibs.com every month for high quality tested recipes, tips on technique, science, mythbusting, product reviews, and inspiration. But it is expensive to run a website with more than 2,000 pages and we don’t have a big corporate partner to subsidize us.

We block all third-party ads, we give members free ebooks, magazines, interviews, webinars, more recipes, a monthly sweepstakes with prizes worth up to $2,000, discounts on products, and best of all a community of like-minded cooks free of flame wars.

Post comments and questions below

grouchy?

1) Please try the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. 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 with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.

4) If you are a member of the Pitmaster Club, your comments login is probably different.

5) Posts with links in them may not appear immediately.
