                    * - Favorite Beer - the cold one in my hand (craft beers of all flavors; haven't had a blue yummy in over 6 years) my tastes change with the season so it is difficult to name just a couple. However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.
                    * - Booze - I don't really have a favorite, but lean towards single malt Scotch & Irish whiskey
                    * - Wines - Reds: mainly the heavy stuff mixed in with the occasional pinot noir ( I have yet to meet a malbec I didn't like); Whites: German & Nebraska (hey, I have to support the home team)
                    * - Favorite Spice outlets - Frisco Spices in LaVista, NE (the local butcher supply shop); Volcanic Peppers in Bellevue, NE
                    * - Current butchers: Just Good Meats & Fareway Foods

                  My new 2008 GMC 2500 has the 6.0 gasser in it. Only about 12 MPG normally, 13.6 hwy on the drive up. However, you tag on this great big, tall trailer, 3850 pounds before you put on the smoker (1,800 pounds) and other gear... Well, if you pull her 75 MPH in the hills of Alabama, it stays in 4th gear, about 3,600 RPM and you get a whopping 5.6 MPG. Slow down to 65 on the flatlands, it will stay in 5th gear, about 2,400 RPM, and tuck in behind an 18 wheeler, and that rises to a whole 8 MPG! My brother offered his 2500 with the Diesel for our next long trip!
                  Ha! You might have been better off pulling that thing with the firetruck! I jest. Congratulations and good luck! Please keep us posted as I'm sure we will cross paths at some point in time.

                    That is a beautiful outfit and doing what your heart tells you is one of life's pleasures. As you attain success, always take a little time to "smell the roses".

                        Yep, great setup, passion, and a solid vision for how to go about it. Next, we need to taste some.

                        Best of luck, because that's the part that's unpredictable. But you seem to have prepared to get some!

                            That is one, as they say here AMAZING. Good luck with your new adventure. Buy the way, if you would divulge, how much did that beautiful rig set you back? My thought I was crazy to splurge for my LSG offset. With shipping $2,800. But you plan to make a business out of it. That's very cool. Again the best of luck.

                              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                              The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                              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.

                              Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. 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.

                              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 $299 delivered to your door!

                              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                              NK-22-Ck Grill

                              Their NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
