        I like it. Gives you real good access to everything on the grill grates.

          That is a great looking smoker. However I see you have another one of those bad thermometers that doesn’t return to zero after the cook.🙂

          It is an interesting design. I like some of it, and could see some disadvantage to it. With the fire box directly below, do you have any hot spots? I am guessing because it is reverse flow, it doesn't. I like the fact that it is compact. I am looking forward to your updates.

            I don't have covid ,just a bad case of MMIB (more meat is better) syndrome. So done a quick run to the butchers to load it up with spatchcock chicken, beef flank, full rack o pork ribs, brisket and 2 roast beefs. I was going to throw on 8 chorizos but got the look of disgust from my wife.

              I know that look of disgust, all too well. I would love the chorizo - she would give me the same look. You could hide it by putting it under the chicken!

              A chicken in two beers time? You need to throw another brisket on there, to allow time for more 'inspiration'.

            Ingenious design and so simple.

                  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.

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!

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.
