    Hello all,

    New member here but I have been lurking on this site for a while. Figured, it was high time I joined. I would call my self an advanced beginner to intermediate immature. I have been smoking meats and making my own sausage here for years but just for my family. I am self taught so thank you for this great site. I have done several of turkeys, chickens and pork butts over the years but as I write this I am smoking my first beef briquet (just a small piece not a whole). I hope it turns out well. Brisket has always intimidated me. My current smoker is a Camp Chef Smoke Vault 24". Which I purchased after reading reviews here. I have been pricing a Lang stick burner or maybe an Assassin Gravity feed but so far my wife just doesn't share my vision! Anyway, just thought introduce myself.

            Welcome from Maryland. The Smoke Vault is a great little smoker once you get the hang of it, and it can be used so many ways. I use my Yoder primarily for meats but use my Vault for baking pies and breads.

                            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.

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.

                            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. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. 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.
