    The Blaze refurb pics

    Purchased this Blaze 34" Professional gas grill last week. Owner bought it brand new from BBQ Guys 3 years ago. Retails for over $4100 new. I grabbed it from him off CG for $1200 cash. Spent 5 hours refurbishing it today. I don't think he ever cleaned it. Not once. Built like a tank and over 300lbs. Thanks to my man Mario Mas for helping me with the pick up and back. Going to christen it tonight with a 9 ounce filet for my Bride and a 16 ounce ribeye for me, both USDA Prime. Pics are from refurbed to poorly treated. Going to name her "Daisy", Daisy Blaze. I promise to always treat you with love, affection, respect and more than enough meat to satisfy your desires, Miss Daisy.

      Thank you. I still need to hit it with a little detailing. 3M green pad on the LED grill lights.

    Congratulations. That is an outstanding grill, restoration job and value.

            Thanks Bones!

          Daisy Blaze. It has a nice ring to it. Enjoy cooking on her. If she wants a date, my Mr. Fancypants (WSCGC) is single.

          Lookin good!


            Good job - that thing is a beast.


              Well I for one think Miss Daisy is a beaut !!! From the looks of those burners, she's built like a proverbial tank.


                Thanks all for the kind words. She really is built like a tank. Previous owner really abused her. Something I just don't and can't understand. There is one LED light that is out over a knob that I need to replace. Other than that she's like new.


                  Nice score
                  I might have just fired it up to see if it was used as a smoker !!!!


                    Pretty cool...I love rescue grills.


                      Hulagn1971, how are you liking the grill? Do you experience a lot of flare-ups? I would love to hear a full review after you've put it through its paces.

                        I'll post a couple vids of a cook I did Sunday. A ribeye and a filet wrapped in bacon. There were minimal flare-ups.

                    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.

                    Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                    Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                    We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                    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’.
