      Welcome Jill. It sure is hot now here in Florida. But remember how nice it is November through March!


        Hey Jill! Welcome


          Hot in Florida? I was unloading just a few groceries last week, and this is my garage thermometer in the 5 minutes that the sun hit it while the door was open. Then I closed the door and my garage cooled down to it's normal 94 degrees (practically sweater weather).

          Also funny - walking past my black smoker on the patio and seeing the temps near 150. And I haven't used it in a week.

          On the plus side, it's not hard to keep the meat warm when it comes out of the smoker.

            What horrible place do you live in? I was in Egypt for a time but I think the hottest I saw was 120. We were near the desert so our teeth were chattering at night.

            I would rather have 120 and dry than 100 and humid. I do have a pool and Henry and I enjoy it lot. have a butt smoking right now we are going swimming cuz were in the stall 165 perfect time to wrap before the dip and also howdy from sunny CA. Jill

          Good guesses - but actually in very humid Boynton Beach, Florida - about halfway between Boca Raton and West Palm Beach. It was in the mid 90's (as it is now), but once the sun hits any of the thermometers on the west side of my house, the dial ones like that just spin to hades level hot in 5 minutes. But since I was out in the sun, too...that's how I felt.

          Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

          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!

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

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.
