A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

Click here for more info on the Maverick PT-55 Waterproof Instant-Read Thermometer Review shown above. It may be the best value in a thermometer out there


If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

the good one grill

The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

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.

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!

The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers

Placeholder

The smart folks at ThermoWorks have finally done it: The Swiss Army Knife of thermometers, two in one. Start with the industry standard food thermometer, the Thermapen MK4, (Platinum Medal winner) truly instant (2 to 3 seconds) precise (+ or – 0.7°F). Then they built in an infrared thermometer ideal for measuring the temps of pizza stones, griddles, and frying pans (also great for finding leaks around doors and windows in your house).

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill

Their NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

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.

Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

masterbuilt gas smoker

Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others.

The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.

    Once again the Engelbrecht did it. I dry aged a 22lb 6 bone prime rib for 35 days using the Umai system. https://umaidry.com/. I cooked using simple 50/50 salt pepper with a little red pepper flake for a kick. Rotisserie for about 40 minutes to put a little smoke on then cut that bad boy up and cook it like a proper steak. I only used about 4 bones for eight of us. Man what a meal. My wife made some cream spinach and mashed potatoes. I don’t think Peter Lugar‘s done it better. This grill just gets better and better and better. I think is the best steak I’ve ever made and I’m patting myself on the back but come on !!

        Splatt44 find some Picanha and throw that on the rotisserie. Also, you can rotisserie a suckling pig. That's a great feature, and genius that you used it to heat the meat before searing.

        Just cut the steaks about 3 fingers wide. Cover them with large salt crystals and other spices if you wish then let the rotisserie do it's magic. The beauty is that they cook slowly and the fire melts that fat cap and constantly bathes the meat in fat juices. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Should look something like this:

          Does Englebrecht have a cast iron “plancha” that you can swap out the grill grate for? That’d be sweet!

          Gentlemen, I just ordered my Braten 1000 last night. I absolutely cannot wait for it to arrive. This thread has given me even more joy. Thrilled to join the club!! Didn't order the rotisserie....yet. May have to wait until next year, while my bank account goes through a rebuilding phase.

            Question, as I'm looking through all these fantastic pictures: Have you had any difficulty starting or maintaining a fire in the main fire box? I'm just wondering how it circulates air? I don't see any vents on the right side of the chamber.

              I have not had any problem keeping a fire going. There is a learning curve to cooking on the grill, spreading out the wood or embers. This is not a set it and forget it grill. Most of the time the top is open or at least resting on the raised grates so there is plenty of air. Does this answer your question?

                Yes sir. I've been wood grilling for many years, but always on rigs that were not designed for it. I had to keep buying replacement parts (or new grills) every couple years. I used a Hasty Bake for the last two years, and it's a great grill, and vented well. I wanted to stop before I ruined it. Was just curious on the air ventilation of the Braten.

              Expanding my horizons, hole Branzino with a salt coating stuffed with Lemongrass and Lime leaves. Grilled low and slow 20 min per side. With the smoke from the oak and the zesty flavor. Killer combo.
