kareubequ bbq smoker

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

grill grates

GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers

The smart folks at ThermoWorks have finally done it: The Swiss Army Knife of thermometers, two in one. Start with the industry standard food thermometer, the Thermapen MK4, (Platinum Medal winner) truly instant (2 to 3 seconds) precise (+ or – 0.7°F). Then they built in an infrared thermometer ideal for measuring the temps of pizza stones, griddles, and frying pans (also great for finding leaks around doors and windows in your house).

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only 9 delivered to your door!

PK 360 grill

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado. Beautifully designed and completely portable. Meathead says it is his preferrred grill.

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.

      Hell yes! That is a nice batch of slicing history. Not fancy, but functional as any high price cutter out there.
      I'm liking this post--might have to keep it going.
      I do like the old things--they hold memories and will share them.

        Do you have any idea why they turn black.. my newer one rust easily.. the old ones turn black.. huh.. must be above my pay grade!!

        Th ol time ones had arguably better steel, though they take more lovin care...they also keep an edge far longer.

        Editing a comment
        That has always been my thought to.. the older ones just feel different.. they are heavier but have a way better feel to them.. at least to me. I have had lots of people try to sell me on the new trendy knives.. nope . Just give me a vintage old hickory 9 inch skinning beef knife and step aside( preferably with the two brass rivets. They are green around the edges. I am sure that dates them some how ) great knives!! I buy every one I find on eBay..

      Some (a few of th) chef's knives that I've bought, over th decades, back when cookin was providin me with my primary income...

      Sure, they're some ol, battle-scarred, war-weary veterans, but they still stand, ready fer duty, at a moments notice!

        Nice collection my friend, I love my old Chicago Cutlery knives. I started with a basic set 40 years ago and have added to them over the years. I finally broke down and purchased a "king kong" knife block to hold most of them. Buy the way, I have had excellent luck building my collection at second hand shops, often for less than $2 each. Some TLC and they are ready to go into service. Thanks for sharing.
