Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

maverick PT55 thermometer

A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

Click here for more info on the Maverick PT-55 Waterproof Instant-Read Thermometer Review shown above. It may be the best value in a thermometer out there


If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

slow n sear

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.

Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

the good one grill

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.

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

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.

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!

The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers

Placeholder

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).

Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

Char-Broil's Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you're off to the party! Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

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.

G&F Suede Welder's Gloves

If you're using oven mitts at the grill, it's time to trade up. Say hello to these suede welder's gloves.

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.

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.

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.

    Flaviar online whiskey & spirits club- we both get a free bottle!

    I have been a member of Flaviar, an online whisk(e)y & spirits club, for about a year maybe more. If you've heard of it, are interested in joining, or know you want to join for sure, please let me know by either PMing me here or emailing me, and I can give you a referral code that will get us both a free bottle!

    What I like about them is that they have a LOT of great tasting notes on different liquors & whiskies and really help you find things that you might enjoy based on what you already enjoy. You can get a free tasting kit (3 samples) of bourbon, Scotch, gin, tequila, whatever you choose, every quarter for free as a member, or you can buy more. I've discovered 3 things my wife & I love form their tasting kits. You get free shipping on any order once a month. If you're a connoisseur, or want to be, this place is worth taking a peek at. I got 2 tasting kits when I joined, I think everyone does.

    What's it cost?

      Yep, what djl said below. So $20/month or $17.50/mo if paid yearly. Every 3 mo. you get a free tasting kit, most are $35-40, and every month you get a free shipping credit on any size order. I have found whiskeys there I can't find locally, conversely I've found higher prices on some I can cheaper locally. It's a gamble, but the tasting kits and info they have make it a fun hobby and good value for me. Hate to use this comparison, but maybe somewhat like the AR for whiskey in some respects.

      Update: Currently the free bottle we'd both get is Breckenridge bourbon.

      I had a sample of it months ago and I don't remember it specifically. I remember liking it, but how exactly it compares to some of my other faves escapes me. I do have some coming so I can give my review of it later. Breaking Bourbon rates it very favorably.

          CA has a lot of crap regulations and taxes, but alcohol is surprisingly one of the most relaxed. We can get just about anything (as long as the distributor sells to CA) anywhere - beer, wine, liquor are available at any market, gas station, you name it. Pretty much the only restriction we have is alcohol sales are prohibited between 2am-6am daily (that goes for store and bars). And yes, we have a couple local bars that are only closed from...you guessed it...2am-6am seven days a week!

        I am taking a bourbon (and spirits) sabbatical. How long does the offer last? If I start now, the sabbatical will end quickly. I am a weak man with no willpower - at least where it comes to bourbon. And whiskey. And rum. And beer. And - wait, do I sound like an alcoholic???

          2 days outta 7 makes fer 0.2857142857142857% of th time I git to enjoy a drink before at least 1630, or later...
          I'm okay with that. Makes me one o them there 'Connie Sewer' thingies, I'd haveta reckon.

        I'd love to do this. Unfortunately, I live in a backwards state with backwards laws where alcohol is concerned. Probably a good thing since our laws are so relaxed concerning guns.

        Can't buy booze on Sunday. Can't buy any kind of alcohol before noon on Sundays. Grocery/convenience stores are not allowed to sell alcoholic beverages over 17%ABV. Liquor stores are only allowed to be open from 10am-9pm Monday-Saturday. Can't buy any alcohol from a store after midnight. Bars must stop selling alcohol at 2am. Can't have alcohol shipped to you from outside the city you live in. Dumb, puritanical crap.

          Blame the Distributors and the Politicians that accept their bribes, uh, I mean, campaign contributions.

          Years ago, I had to drive from Florida to Georgia just to buy real Japanese beer because it came in 733 mL bottles. Florida had regulation on beer that said it could only be sold in 12, 16, or 32 ounce bottles. The big three didn't want any competition. The laws have finally be relaxed, but the point is now mute, because Kirin, Sapporo, and Asahi no longer sell Japanese beer in America.

        Buck Flicks It's similar here in PA. ALSO, and I think this is worse, we can't hunt on Sundays.....

        Slight disclaimer, we can hunt for 'yotes and crows on Sunday. No deer, small game, waterfowl, elk, turkey, etc....

          That's interesting. And ridiculous.

          In Texas, car dealerships aren't open on Sundays. If they are going to open on a Sunday, they can't be open on Saturday. They can only be open one day per weekend.

        Update: I received a bottle of Breckenridge today and, despite the fact that it was only 10:15am, I had to try it. (Breckenridge is the free bottle Flaviar is currently offering to you & me if you were to join up with my link).

        I love it!

        Breckenridge is very flavorful, no off flavors (to me), luscious mouthfeel, less cinnamon spice in favor of sweet & buttery (young corn), creamy. It is a smooth blended bourbon. You'd never guess by its flavor that it's a young 2-3yr old whiskey with a high rye mashbill...that might make you think harsh and unfriendly, but not at all! It has a very drinkable character like that of Blanton's, but a touch smoother. They reportedly use snow-melt from the mountains in their water supply, rich in minerals, which allows them to produce such a friendly bourbon in little time, keeping the price down.

        The current price on this bottle is ~$45, and IMO it's worth every penny. Two thumbs up.

        Edit: My wife's not a huge fan, at least not as big a fan as me. She says it has a floral smell and a strange aftertaste. I get none of that, I really enjoy it and think there is no aftertaste. But I guess that's why they say everyone's palate is different. I hope my review shed some light on Breckinridge for you.

          Both of mine came at the same time yesterday afternoon. Haven't had the chance to open them though. I think I am going to like the club - all of it looked pretty good.

        OK, so I got my first shipment from Flaviar, and I was pretty impressed. I got a 750ml bottle of Breckenridge Bourbon, and 3 sample sized bottles. One each of Breckenridge, Few Rye Whiskey and Wolfburn Single Malt Whiskey. I agree with Huskee's take on the Breckinridge - it is a really smooth bourbon. I have never been able to describe the different aspects of tasting - probably because I have smoked for years - but it is an excellent bourbon. Up there with my 2 favorites, Buffalo Trace and Four Roses Single Barrel. The packaging for the samples was pretty neat, they were nestled (always wanted to use the word nestled) in a round cask like container. My wife is not a bourbon drinker, but she likes whiskey, so we tasted the Wolfburn. Another hit - both of us really liked it. It was pretty smooth too. I think I am going to like this club; thanks again Huskee for turning us onto this.

          Bump, anyone else interested?

          Anyone else a member? What do you think, love it, hate it? I've done a side by side on 2 bottles of Breckenridge, both their regular and their Reserve Blend. Good stuff. I think I favor the Reserve, a little more oak.
