    The online site is fairly new I believe. Couldn’t hurt to call and ask if it’s possible. I’ve never tried but don’t see why it couldn’t be possible

    There’s a J&B near me in Tewksbury and I like alpine better. I think there’s a better selection and better quality IMO

    Looks like a good place, prices are better than a lot of other online suppliers. I'm only seeing beef on the mail order site, need to ask them if I can get some lamb thrown in when I order.

    Are they better than J&B Butcher? There’s one near me in Stoneham. I went in a checked it out and it looked OK, but didn’t blow me away.

    I wanted to give this thread a bump to share a cool story.

    I ordered and picked up a brisket at Alpine last week to cook for my labor day cookout. It got to temperature in the time I anticipated but I noticed that the fat hadn't really rendered that much. I thought this was odd but whatever. After cutting it and eating, it was definitely tougher than the briskets I'd bought there in the past. Still good but not that usual tender meat I'm accustomed to.

    Today I went in there at lunch to pick up a sandwich I ordered online and talked to the owner about it. I told him all that had happened and he apologized greatly. He then told me to wait at the counter for a second. He walked over to the cash register, went in it, and gave me my money back. I told him I wasn't looking for a refund. I just wanted to let him know in case he changed suppliers or whatever. He said it was the same supplier but sounds like I just got a tough brisket. He also said we want our customers to be 100% satisfied so he refunded me the entire amount! He even offered to pay for my sandwich but I had already prepaid.

    So long story longer, they have a life long customer in myself for such excellent customer service that you just don't see in this day and age any more.

    Will have to get up there thank you for the review pjlstrat

    I usually get my Tri Tip from Porter Road but it looks like they raised the price from $21 to $31 per piece.

    I didn’t mention it above but I got a roast beef sandwich and it was outstanding. They make their own ciabatta bread every morning .

    Glad you liked. It’s definitely a small, family run operation but the beef is quality. As you point out, they can get you whatever you need with a little lead time.

    Glad they gave you the discount. They’ve done that with me as well. One of the perks of being a family business

    I work nearby and go there for lunch often. Would rather support them than the cafeteria in my building. They also have an iPhone app to order stuff too

    Not sure how it works with delivery if you can request a larger size but I’ve called them with a few days notice and asked for a 12 pound brisket (post trimming) and was no problem at all

    I haven’t been to the brick and mortar but I have ordered several times and have emailed the shop and always received a timely reply from Tom Doyle,one of the brothers and he has always been professional and appreciative of comments and feed back.
    I think they are a class operation.
    OK,,,did you get any plate ribs ?

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.

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.

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.

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.
