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.

G&F Suede Welder's Gloves

Heat Resistant Gloves With Extra Long Sleeves Hold The Hot Stuff

If you're using oven mitts at the grill, it's time to trade up. Say hello to these suede welder's gloves. They're heat resistant enough to handle hot grill grates, and flexible enough to handle tongs. The extra long sleeves even let you reach deep into the firebox to move hot logs without getting burned.

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.

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!

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.

    Weber Performer Deluxe

    I have to say goodbye to my performer. She has treated me well and I hate to see her go but I need the space. 100 bucks takes it, I'm giving it away cheap bbecause if someone from this group takes it I'll know that she is going to a good home!! Jersey City NJ

          I would just give it to you, you have helped me tremendously!! I know people say the PBC is set and forget but that was not my experience. I read your tutorials (especially the proper lighting technique) and now I love my PBC! Thanks!

              If you will drive it down to Alabama I'll take it! Haha.

              I paid $100 for my Performer Deluxe a couple of years ago, and it came with a full set of Grillgrates. Best purchase I ever made.

                I have that same one. Congrats to both of you.

                    I got a brand new Hasty Bake Gourmet from a couple this year, for 200. A cover girl model and her husband answer the door. A freshly painted deck/2 flights of stairs awaited me and my handtruck that I didn't know about. Gorgeous model girl is talking to me the whole time while her husband was watching. I have never looked directly at my shoes for so long. Her rational was that thet Hasty Bake was bigger than what they wanted and that I was doing her a favor.(stare at shoes, stare at shoes)
