    Inaugural Cook on the SnS Kamado

    For the first cook I'm using the SnS set up to cook an 8 oz. bison ribeye and a 2 lb New York Berkshire pork roast, both from Wild Fork Foods. Four hour dry brine: ribeye was seasoned with pink Himalayan salt and the pork roast was seasoned with TexJoy Steak Seasoning which has a lot of salt. The ambient temperature outside is 63 degrees.

    The ribeye was shaped like a New York strip and was rather thin - thinner than the one that I bought last month so I squeezed it into a 5" diameter metal tin, stuck it into the freezer until firm, and trussed it around it's circumference with cooking twine.
    I placed the ribeye on the Drip 'N Griddle grate down low and the pork roast on the Easy Spin grate. The ribeye went to 120 degrees pretty quickly (temp at the Drip 'N Griddle was 240 degrees) so into the fridge it went. The pork roast will take a lot longer, it was still at 80 degrees when I pulled the ribeye. A pecan chunk was placed on the coals when the meat was put in the kamado.

    The ribeye was more tender than the one I cooked last month. The camera didn't catch the pinkness of the pork. Both turned out perfect.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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.

      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.
