    Turbo charged my 26 kettle…

    Spoke with Chad @ Kick Ash Basket a week ago about the idea of adding an XL basket to my 26 kettle.

    The XL is sized to fit XL BGE’s and is a bit small for the 26 kettles… but was exactly what I was looking for as I prefer to have the good sized direct grilling area of the basket, with a 2nd cooler zone around the perimeter of the kettle. Also, keeps the charcoal from the walls of the kettle.

    In order to clear the cooking grate, Chad had to bend the handles back a bit.

    Another reason that I wanted this was to be able to sit cross ways on the stock charcoal grate… keeping small pieces of lump from falling through. When done, a quick raking of the charcoal and the ash is gone.

    Cooked up some burgers today and so far so good. Nice to be able to keep the lump contained and stacked when doing a good amount of direct grilling.

        Yes, MCS does have a way of getting into our wallets. Pretty sure this is a sister illness better known as MCAS though 🤷🏻‍♂️

          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 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.

          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.
