      It's great to hear you compliment your loyal employees too. From my own experience I understand how important and wonderful that is to make a business so successful.

    Last year we congratulated you on getting your building built and passing all the hurdles to be able to open up. This year, again congratulations for having a successful year and wishing you many more to come.

      Week the kids don't care for the meat locker very much unless I am smoking hot dogs or beef sticks. It is possible they spent way too much time out there already.. oh well they won't have to look for a job in a few years!

    Wow. This is really cool stuff.

    What do you think the biggest lessons are that you have learned? What are you excited about for next year?

      Thanks .. I learned I can't do it at this level by myself. That being said I had a couple unreliable employees at first but they will weed themselves out then you pay the good ones and treat them right. Good help is damn hard to find!! I am excited that I am in the process for getting licensed for retail.. I has been a learning process but I have 4-5 storefronts that want my products in.

    Congratulations!

    Congratulations on a successful first year! And thank you for taking us (virtually) along for the ride!

      Congrats on having a dream, making a plan, following through, dealing with the unforeseen and adapting and managing the level of quality that you demand.
      Heck of a learning curve but I will say you did it with a great level of aplomb.
      Very impressive.

      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!

      Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

      Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
      Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

      Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

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.

      Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

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


      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 Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
