    Finally arrived in NZ

    The 2 containers I sent at Christmas finally arrived inn Auckland. 3 1/2 months. The last week the boat had been sitting in the harbor waiting for the port to get it's act together. These are some well traveled pits. Started in Argentina, 2 x stops in brazilian ports, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, Jarkata, 2 x stops in Australia 🦘 then finally arrived in Auckland. I bolted some wheels on the trailer and dragged it 100km home and had a big truck bring the rest of the pits. Will be working this weekend disassembling them ready for sale..

            I guess it was stuck in the Suez Canel.

              Nope... but I am sure the port in Auckland will use it as an excuse for their ineptness.

                  I think he's trying to bait you. Looks like another North versus South battle royale is brewing!

                The South African stop was more than likely the port just down the drag from where I stay.
                Wishing you all the success.

                    Finally got to play with my toys on this side of the pacific. Cooked up lamb, rolled beef flank, chicken, pastrami and leg of a hogget. Perfect weather here for Easter. Been busy un wrapping all the pits from shipping.

                      Live in small towns outside of AKL is cheaper and better...

                  Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

                  Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                  Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                  Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. 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 Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                  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.

                  Amazingribs.com temperature magnet

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.

                  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.

                  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!

                  Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                  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’.
