    I have a sauerkraut crock that was given to me back in college by a grad student from Switzerland. I am starting 15 lbs. of sauerkraut tomorrow I made some pretty good Kimchi last spring, turned it into pulled pork egg rolls.

    The newly rebuilt motor runs great. In hindsight the '62 motor was never right.

    I bought this in 1999 for $1000 and basically restored it other than the drive train. There was a '62 235 in this truck until a year ago. The oil pump slipped off the distributor shaft and the engine locked up, throwing the #1 rod and turning the cam into 2 inch pieces of scrap. Both sides of the block blew out and the drive train locked up. I did a 180 and wound up (thank God) in the center turn lane. The truck now has a freshly built '59 235 and runs better than before.

    First ride I ever owned, at 14, was a 50 Chebbie 5-window truck...62 235 in it, three on th tree, only one small rust spot.
    $200, took a LONG time to earn/save that, back then...

    Love to see yer 52, anytime!!!!

    The pastrami from scratch is a great project! Enjoy!

    See if you can connect with some great sauerkraut and a good swiss-style cheese, and make the Reubens (see the public side of the site, but use your pastrami, not just corned beef).

    In for the long haul!! Love it! Welcome again, I look forward to pics of your pastrami

    Thanks again for the welcoming responses.

    I've been exploring the site all week and I like it so much that I upgraded to the 3 year membership special being offered. I also bought Meathead's book on Amazon.

    Based on the recipes and info from this site I am curing a 6 lb corned beef brisket which will be smoked to make Meathead's Katz Deli pastrami.

    Today I "deep cleaned" my Cypress Grill and replaced the gasket - I found some cracks in the base but they are not structurally significant so I should be able to enjoy a few more years with my Cypress Grill. The fire box, however, is now in 5 pieces - it went back together but is unstable. I will buy a BGE firebox as a replacement.

    Happy New Year to everyone.

Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder's fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive! So before you buy, please click our links. Here's a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys:

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

slow n sear
The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
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.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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 because temperature control is so much easier.

The Undisputed Champion!

thermapen
The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

Grilla pellet smoker
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.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

kareubequ bbq 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.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

masterbuilt gas 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'.

Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill
Napoleon's 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.

Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

Green Mountain Davey Crockett Grill
Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet 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 Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
