Meet Our Team

In the past, all the articles, recipes, tips and technique on AmazingRibs.com were written exclusively by Meathead. That's no longer the case. In 2017, we added some knowledgable writers and editors to provide new recipes and reviews.While most of the content is still my own, I stand on the shoulders of some very helpful people, listed below. 

""Praise is cheap, but criticism is priceless.""

Post comments and questions below

grouchy?

1) Please try the table of contents or 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) Post with links in them may not appear immediately.
