2016 Winners of the Great Giveaway

Share on:

In 2016, we had 12 winners of our monthly Pitmaster Club giveaway. Paid members in the US are entered into 12 monthly drawings per year with first prizes worth up to $3,000, second prizes worth up to $600, and third prizes worth up to $300! Click here for the complete list of prizes and the complete rules of the sweepstakes. Your odds are about 1-in-450 in a year. Unfortunately, only those within the US are eligible due to the complexities of complying with sweepstakes laws in other countries. Plus many manufacturers won’t ship internationally due to shipping costs and customs regulations.

High quality websites are expensive to run. If you help us, we’ll pay you back bigtime with an ad-free experience and a lot of freebies!

Millions come to 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.

Our most important source of sustenance is people who join our Pitmaster Club. But please don’t think of it as a donation. Members get MANY great benefits. 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. Click below to see all the benefits, take a free 30 day trial, and help keep this site alive.

Post comments and questions below


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.
