    • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

    I'm not promoting this I just came across it on Amazon. Just thought I would share it with you all and get your thoughts on it and no I'm not planning on getting it.

    I bought one back in October or so when they first came out.
    Its not too bad for the price but I wouldn't purchase again.
    One of the probes has already gone haywire,
    although they are suppose to be sending me
    a replacement for free. I like being able to use
    my phone and not carry another monitor and
    it does give you a nice graph of your cooks.
    I paid 28 when I bought mine, figured it was worth
    checking out.

      I have used other Bluetooth models before and usually get frustrated with them. It usually takes to long to reconnect when you go out of range. Maybe I'm just too impatient, but they always seem to make me angry

        I have one that I use for mash temperatures. I have tried it with BBQ once. It is accurate enough. It reconnects to my iPhone quickly, but it has the range limit of Bluetooth. Now that I have the Fireboard, I probably won't use it for BBQ.

              My wife got me one for Christmas, I like it. I checked it in Boiling water today and it is accurate. It eats up batteries pretty fast but could get rechargables if needed. Not very good range on the Bluetooth but it connects well with Apple devices.

                I have the Maverick ET 735, with 4 probe thermometers, that very few people in the Pit like. It's blue tooth and I've never had a problem with it losing its connection and it's Maverick accurate on all 4 probes. I thought the 4 probe capability and the ability to track it on my iPad while I watched football games was pretty cool. When it breaks down I'll buy something else but it's been going strong for a few years now.

                  Be very careful Huskee ...🙀 You work for the guy that said fools like us Pit members are not experienced enough to make the poke technique work. It's the ONLY reason I bought my first Thermapen. However... if I had no Thermapen with me and someone asked me to grill a steak... I could do it.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              the good one grill

              The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

              Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

              masterbuilt gas smoker

              Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
