    "No Can" Beer Can Chicken

    This is why I don't use the "can" when doing Beer Can Chicken. The blue color in my can koozie is from the paint on the cans!
    I use the can stand with a pan of water underneath, works great.

    Yes. Meathead did a detailed article on why the whole beer can chicken thing is bogus. Check the free side however, cooking a whole chicken on a beer can stand without the beer can is another thing entirely. Works great, even cooking, almost like a rotisserie cook.

      That's the article that made me start telling friends and family to quit doing that. All credit to Meathead! Love his articles. That's one of the reasons I joined.

      My brother and I still have a (good natured) disagreement about beer can chicken. I've thrown every point Meathead made about it but he still does it and swears by it.

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

      Placeholder

      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

      Placeholder

      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

      Placeholder

      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

      Placeholder

      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!

      Placeholder

      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

      Placeholder

      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.

      Placeholder

      GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

      Placeholder

      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

      Placeholder

      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

      Placeholder

      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!

      Placeholder

      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!

      Track Up To Six Temperatures At Once

      Placeholder

      FireBoard Drive 2 is an updated version of a well-received product that sets the standard for performance and functionality in the wireless food thermometer/thermostatic controller class.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Placeholder

      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

      Placeholder

And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
