    My 26” performer

    Wanted some space to work around the 26”, and the legs are wobbly anyway. Not anymore.

            Ha! The bench color is pretty much the only non-black heat resistant spray. I saw flat black, grey, and brown.

            The kettle is stock “glen blue”

            The thermometer is a
            Tel-Tru BQ300 Barbecue Thermometer, 3 inch

            I have to have a thermometer at grate level, my pk360 spoiled me for that. Matches the probe within about +/- 15F.

            I should also mention that I drilled fan and probe ports as well.

          If I had someone near me that could have retrofitted a steel work table, I would have popped for a new 26 Performer. I wish this had shown up two days ago.


          Looks nice and sturdy.


            Totally DIESEL !!!!

            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.

            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.
