    Bragging thread - Awesome Grill or Smoker deals found out in the Wild

    Over the weekend I snagged this unbelievable deal at the local 201 Central (Wine store). It made me wonder what other deals folks may have found lately. We want to hear about it! If it's clearance and you got the last one like this BGE I scored just stop by to brag. If it's a sale of more than one and you can share the deal, please do! (Note - This thread is for consumers only. No retailers advertising their own wares)

    Everything in this pic was included in the price.

    You can see here it's the small version of the BGE.

    And it's definitely small compared to my Akorn, but I'll use this mainly for cooking side dishes and searing a steak or two, so the size works just fine.

      I'd bake some bread on that little ceramic oven... You would need to elevate a small baking stone above the felt line though.

              Yeah. I gotta get rid of a couple. I should cut the Akorn loose I think. Perhaps give it to my Bro in Law.

                  It didn't come with the PS, which I think should be standard equipment. I'm definitely getting one, probably this week. cdd315 how would you use a small BGE?

                    Pit Boss like you said above, I would use it for sides and steaks. It would be perfect for baking potatoes, french fries (in a basket), corn and grilled vegetables. I'd find a pizza stone (I've seen 9") and make individual pizza's. I'd bake bread. Baked beans in a Dutch Oven. Anything else you can think of in a Dutch Oven. I would use it for roasts .. and chicken pieces or an upright chicken. Mainly though I would use it for cooking when my main cooker is busy doing something else. I'd use it even if I only need to cook something for a short while .. the good thing is you can snuff the fire out and use the left over coals next time you light it.

                    Ceramic cookers are efficient coal burners. I'd be interested in how long a small BGE like yours can burn a full load at 225F! I would think it could do a pork butt from start to finish, but IDK.

                    Have fun with it and I look forward to seeing what you use it for. Show lots of pictures

                      Thanks Curtis. I'd have gotten around to thinking about foil eventually, so thanks for saving me a little we bit of time... I'm a smart guy so it probably wasn't more than two or three weeks, erm, months... lol

                      Pit Boss, you're the smartest Pit Boss of all the Pit Bosses I know. You like med-rare steaks, bold red wines, roasted Brussels sprouts, copper kettles, and American Honey and Maker's 46 mixed. I think those are the 5 main check boxes on both the smart and cool lists.

                        Things are heading in the right direction. I think we need to wait for a few hundred more folks to bid though.

                      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.

                      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).

                      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                      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.

                      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.
