Cuisinart's Griddler Five is an electric indoor griddle/grill that upgrades their previous version with a sleek modern look, LCD display, digital controls, and a sear function. If you're shopping for a small indoor electric, Cuisinart's Griddler Five deserves a look. It's versatile, easy to clean, and light and small enough to store out of the way in an upper kitchen cabinet. We award it our AmazingRibs.com Best Value Gold Medal.
On May 26, 2021, I was informed that I made the Barbecue Hall of Fame. Wow! This is quite an honor. The other two living inductees honored this year are Ollie Gates of Gates BBQ in Kansas City, and Rodney Scott of Rodney Scott’s BBQ in Charleston. “Legacy” (deceased) inductees this year include Arthur Bryant of Arthur Bryant’s BBQ in Kansas City and Lyttle Bridges Cabaniss of Bridges Barbecue in Shelby NC. I am the second inductee from the Chicago area, the other being James Lemons, founder of Lem’s Bar-B-Que.
When it comes to determining the most popular BBQ and grilling websites, the only true reporting tool is Google Analytics. When seeking your "go to" outdoor cooking resource, it is hard to dispute AmazingRibs.com's reach with more than 25 million page views annually, coupled with its 17,000 member strong Pitmaster Club subdomain.
Welcome to the new AmazingRibs.com! Over the past year, our elves have been working diligently behind the scenes to rebuild this entire website.

If you need a large portable gasser for camping, tailgating or just grilling around town on the weekend, Traveler is a very good choice. There are both less expensive and more expensive cart models, placing Traveler somewhere in a mid-price range. Quality construction and Weber's excellent customer service merit every penny. REad our review to find out why we give Traveler our AmazingRibs.com Best Value Gold Medal.
Everyone is talking about the sexy new Spark Grill. It catches your eye and draws you in, then throws roadblocks in the way. We wonder if Spark's uncommon effort to improve on the simple, tried and true, beloved charcoal grill will come to fruition. Read our review to learn why we don't currently recommend it.
Part of the Everdure Grills by Heston Blumenthal collection of smokers and grills, the FORCE is a 48-inch, 2-burner propane gas grill that comes with a stand. There is no arguing that the FORCE looks cool, but our review shows the grill falls short in several areas, especially given its approximately $900 price tag.
Our Burch Barrel Review shows it's not your Grandpa's Cowboy Cooker. It blends an open fire camp grill with a vertical lift Argentine style mechanism. It is well-built, versatile, unique and a ton of fun to use. That's why it wins our AmazingRibs.com Best Value Gold Medal.
Can't decide between a charcoal, wood, or gas grill? Char-Griller's Flavor Pro Multi-Fuel Grill allows you to use all three thanks to a unique design first seen with Kalamazoo's much costlier hybrid grill. While our review revealed some issues, this grill should be appealing to someone who wants multiple fuel options.

Grilled pork tenderloin comes together fast and takes on classic French flavors in the hands of Georgia's Top Chef Kevin Gillespie. Like classic Steak Diane, the sliced tenderloin is served with a flavorful green peppercorn sauce.
Top Chef Fan Favorite Kevin Gillespie says that barbecue is always served with Brunswick stew in his native Georgia. Squirrel is the traditional meat, but Kevin likes to use beef and pork or even scraps of barbecued pork. His recipe also includes a secret ingredient that amplifies the flavors of everything else.

A little effort yields much more delicious food. Check out this list of Do's and Don'ts to maximize your cookers strengths and minimize its weaknesses.
Barbecue Hall of Famer Mike Mills died Tuesday morning December 29, 2020 due to issues unrelated to COVID. I first met Mike and his daughter Amy in October 2005 at the Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational Barbecue. He was introduced to me as “The Legend.” And he truly is.
Self described as "small but mighty" the new PKGO is beautiful, elegant, clever, effective, and versatile, yet a little pricey for a small, portable charcoal grill. Nonetheless, with PKGO, you get what you pay for, and that means top quality. We say, "Go Man Go", to PKGO and award it our top, Platinum Medal.

The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it.

The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
