    Blake's Place BBQ in Anaheim and Los Alamitos

    This is a great place for ribs that's a block from my office. So... good or bad I eat there frequently. I can't say that I eat the brisket, pulled pork, chicken etc that often so I can't comment on how good it is compared to other places around the country.

    Their spare ribs and beef ribs are some of the best I've ever experienced. I can't say that I love the baby back ribs, but that's likely because I'm quite partial to mine. The spare ribs are my favorite, and I simply can't get enough, and pretty much have a standing, customer order of dry ribs and a side salad instead of their normal fixings; beans, coleslaw, and garlic bread. I use their suicide hot sauce (mixture of all the leftover bottles of hot sauce) instead of bbq sauce.

    Then their beef ribs are extra meaty and just amazing. Sadly they took them off the restaurant menu in the last week or three due to the ever increasing cost and the problems with finding good suppliers. Brian the manager told me I could still order them from their catering arm, but they can't make them for the restaurant.

    I've tried making the spare ribs twice in my smoker, and both times I haven't been close. In both occasions I found cut of meat to be lacking, once from El Toro Meat Market who stocks frozen racks, and the second from Costco. I am using their rub, and part of their basting recipe, but I'm coming up way short. I'll keep trying and hopefully get my finicky grill under better control with the CyberQ. Oh and I have yet to find a butcher that sells beef ribs that are similar to theirs, but I'll keep looking.

    Have you tried the Last Meal Ribs technique for spare ribs? Follow it exactly I would bet you will be a happy camper

    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.

    Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
