    Kent Rollins Bertha Stove

    Much to rich for my blood, but I am a Kent Rollins fan. Looks like Hasty Bake makes it for him.


    Looks like the kind of iron set that was in kitchens 100 yrs ago.


      I enjoy watching him as well. That thing is a beast!


        It's got a lot of good features, and I'm glad they don't hide the rust in his video... but I can't help but feel this is a $2.5K max cooker? I mean the stainless second largest HB is sub 3K... Obviously like some other big names, there's a name mark up, still feels like a bit much? If shipping is included I guess it's probably pretty heavy... but I dunno.

        Regardless, if I had the money, it looks like a really fun and fairly versatile cooker.

          That Steel is deliberately alloyed, and coated, to rust forever, or at least a Very VERY Long Time.

          Mr. Bones yep, I'm just glad they didn't hide it. It's part of the charm IMO on those types of cookers as long as they are well made

        Yeah, I'm thinking they're missing the price point a bit. It would be fun to have, but it ain't no suburban backyard cooker.


          I like Bertha, but I can get a local welding shop to make one for quite a bit less.

            Please do and report back. I would be interested in finding out what welding shop would charge for a one off copy.

            I'll try to get a bid but it won't be made with Corten steel so it may not be a fair comparison. I can ask if they can get it though. I wasn't going to ask for an exact duplicate of the one Hasty Bake is making, just a square box with the burners and a grill on casters. The Hasty Bake model has some upgraded features I wasn't going to incorporate to keep costs down.

          He is putting on a demo at Hasty-Bake tomorrow at 11:00 here in Tulsa. Free, but limited to 250 people. Several weeks ago I reserved a ticket as I really enjoy him. Then it dawned on me that I would miss OU vs. Texas football. Had to cancel my ticket but with regrets.

              Now, SEE?!?!?!?!:

              THIS, Rye Cheer, is th primary same zackly reason I don't have me no dang danged Husband.

            I am no welder but that looks easier to make than the typical COS. Maybe Henrik can weigh in?


              That is the perfect cooker, if ya had a ranch, ferget backyard, & ya wuz cookin fer a brood.


                Looks cool, but the price? Ridiculous.


                  No doubt there's some "celebrity pricing" in there, but it's not quite as outrageous as some might think. Corten steel is not quite double the price of "regular" cold rolled plate, but it's close. And since they likely realize this is a limited sales potential product they don't have much tooling to speed up production, so there's more hourly labor cost in this compared to higher volume products such as the regular HB stuff. Folks like Yoder, LSG and others make "cooking boxes" of similar dimension and roughly similar style that they offer in the $2500-3500 range, so add the higher material cost and this isn't really the double price that it might first appear. But yeah, I'm not the target market either.


                  I'm sure the name adds to the price but I think it's mostly the corten steel. Great stuff but $$$

                    Yup, I’m gonna throw luv at Ol’ Kent. The intent on makin this cooker isn’t with pay dirt in mind. This is not a get rich scheme. Everything about Rollins is real.

                      He is about the only celebrity chef I follow.
                      Christian principles and he does walk the walk.
                      Nothing pretentious about him.
                      We have some very nice kitchen knives but my Husband uses the Kent Rollins Cowboy Hash Knife nearly every time he cooks.

                      Yessir, he’s the one who taught me the proper way to make cowboy coffee. My wife used to love it & a few of my friends tasted it & wanted to know what I did to make it so good.

                  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.

                  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 because temperature control is so much easier.

                  Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                  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 beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
