      Stopped by the Ace Hardware in Fargo the weekend of their grill festival just because I knew Dan would be there. My wife probably grew up 2 blocks from his house but didn't know him. He was quite the character.

        Probably an all time best intro........


        “I just joined The Club and am trying to learn to navigate the site. I have grilled and smoked for a couple of days now and I have learned you never serve it until 3hrs. After They Expect To Eat!! They'll eat anything and swear it's great! I enjoy this site very much. Dan”


        Man I miss him around here. What a legend. Cheers, brother.

          Today it is one year since Dan Johnston passed away.
          I'll light a candle, pop a beer and will cremate something in my backyard.

                I think of Dan a bunch. I think about him most often when the dogs are sitting with me at the BBQ's. His first bird-mutt passed away while my oldest Ridgeback was sick and was slowly wasting. The only thing she would eat was smoked food. No kidding, I could take chicken or beef and boil it, bake it - no go. She just looked at it. Smoked however, and she would chow it down.

                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.

                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 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.

                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.

                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.

                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.
