    KBQ Tradition

    Washington State University is home to the Cougars and they have a tradition of 'waving the flag'. This video will give you an idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoUASvBx1gk

    I propose that all KBQers do something similar with the 'coolie' that Bill supplies us with our KBQ. Pictures can range from your backyard BBQ to the Macy's parade to your holiday in Maui to your climb to the top of Everest. Not only do I think it will be fun for us, but when people ask what the hell are we doing taking a picture of a bottle we can introduce them to the KBQ and make some sales for Bill along with recruiting more members for the tradition.

    I just came back from a weekend holiday in Penticton, BC. Here's a few to start:

    • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

          My brother Jayson, in from NYC, enjoying a libation and the KBQ smoke! (Rocking his Steak of The Month of Club Tank) Him and his college buddies go out to a different fancy steak house, once a month. They have been going strong for 54 Months straight! Pretty awesome tradition.

            Craigar I live, about 100 miles to the north of Spokane and go frequently, it's the closest major shopping to where . I actually have some property just north of Coeur d'Alene. Did I mention it's for sale? Tell you what, next time I'm in CDA I'll bring my coolie and snap a pic just for you.

            ComfortablyNumb 100 miles north? Your backyard must butt up to the Canadian line? If not, your at least within shouting distance. Man, that's some gorgeous country. Thanks for keeping me in mind the next to you're in CDA!

            Here is one last KBQ Koozie pic from the weekend. Here is my Grandpa. One of the finest men I have ever known. He still has an iron grip that he acquired while working for John Deere for 38 years in Waterloo, IA. A great man and a damn fine American!

            That is really great Spinaker ! There is nothing like spending time with family enjoying a few cold ones and some great Q. Looks like it was a really memorable weekend, thanks for sharing.

              I propose that all KBQers do something similar with the 'coolie' that Bill supplies us with our KBQ. Pictures can range from your backyard BBQ to the Macy's parade to your holiday in Maui to your climb to the top of Everest. Not only do I think it will be fun for us, but when people ask what the hell are we doing taking a picture of a bottle we can introduce them to the KBQ and make some sales for Bill along with recruiting more members for the tradition.

              I just came back from a weekend holiday in Penticton, BC. Here's a few to start:

              My Dad was the head trainer at WSU and went on to be the head Trainer for the Houston Rockets.

              I've spent many a day in the Okanagan Valley along with Somerville and Kelowna.

              My Aunt has a waterfront place on the Okanogan,beautiful country but I couldnt handle the winters.

                Maybe you can still play, Ed. It seems Spinaker was able to score some replacements from Bill. I need to see if I can get a replacement myself. I used a 650ml bottle in mine for the pic which stretched it out. Now it just falls off a standard 355ml bottle.

              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.

              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

              Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

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 $299 delivered to your door!
