Good question! You may be familiar with their site, but maybe not as familiar with their ratings and reviews system, so we’ll give you the quick 411. Their medal system is based on three criteria:
At AmazingRibs.com, they have created a huge Equipment Reviews section with a searchable database of hundreds of reviews and ratings of smokers and grills. From this massive database, they have drawn their 2019 Platinum Medal Award-winning grills and smokers (formerly known as Pitmaster Awards). In making their selections, they tried to cover a wide range of designs and prices and pick the best of each breed.
