Black 4-burner gas grill on a double door cart
The Broil King Baron 420 is an AmazingRibs.com Best Value Gold Medal winning, mid-size, 4-burner gas grill. Many compare Broil King very favorably to Weber. A high compliment indeed! Broil King claims their patented Dual Tube Burners produce more even heat and increase burner life. Read more...
A black barrel shaped pellet smoker with a chimney coming out of the top.
This mid-sized pellet smoker is comparable in capacity to Traeger's popular Lil' Tex Elite, but much more sophisticated and easy to find for well below its list price. It's one of the few pellet smokers we've seen with an ash removal system. We tested this innovative smoker and gave it our AmazingRibs.com Gold Medal. Read more...
We always liked Grilla, but the original price seemed steep. We felt a premium was being placed on the cool cosmetics. In 2016 Grilla Grills made a substantial price cut. That drew us off the fence and earned Grills our AmazingRibs.com Best Value Gold Medal. Read more...
Charcoal grill with a black box lower half and shiny steel hood. There is a window in the hood, a shelf in front and on the left side. Under the left side shelf is a hand crank.
We have never tested and worked with a finer charcoal grill. Hasty-Bake easily earns our AmazingRibs.com Gold Medal. There is nothing you can't do with this grill and it deserves a place in the back yard of every serious outdoor cook. It is the Swiss Army knife of grills. Read more...
A black smoker with a lower and upper cabinet attached to each other. Mounted on a steel frame.
A charcoal grill with a smoker spliced on top.The Good-One's Patio Junior is a mini version of their popular Open Range. This cleverly designed charcoal unit uses the same concepts of an offset smoker, but it works better. The Good-One lives up to its' name and receives our AmazingRibs.com Gold Medal. Read more...

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.
