    Introduction!

    Hey Y’all! My name is Thomas Bourne, I live in the Houston Metro area but grew up on eastern NC BBQ in my home state of VA... I smoke on a Yoder YS640 and welcomed a new Grilla Primate to the family this month. Ever since I moved to Texas five years ago, I got bit bad by the BBQ bug. I am an avid fly fisher and hunter so naturally those hobbies led to putting the fruits of my labor over an open fire. I cook 3 times a week and will begin doing some local bbq comps in the 2022!

        Been to Floyd's several times myself. You need to try 1701 BBQ, a new place at 1701 Calder. They are every bit as good as any place in Central Texas. They open at 11am until sold out which usually happens before 2pm.

                        The bug bites hard, sadly calamine lotion doesn't help.

                          Buying more equipment only provides temporary relief but quickly becomes addicting.

                          Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

                          Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                          Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                          Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                          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.

                          Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                          Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                          Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                          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.

                          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!

                          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’.
