GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

grill grates

GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers


The smart folks at ThermoWorks have finally done it: The Swiss Army Knife of thermometers, two in one. Start with the industry standard food thermometer, the Thermapen MK4, (Platinum Medal winner) truly instant (2 to 3 seconds) precise (+ or – 0.7°F). Then they built in an infrared thermometer ideal for measuring the temps of pizza stones, griddles, and frying pans (also great for finding leaks around doors and windows in your house).

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

the good one grill

The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

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.

    Your personal information and settings

    You can visit your information by clicking on your name in the upper right corner and selecting "My Settings" from the drop down menu.

    Account. This tab contains the settings for your account and allows you some control over how things are presented to you on the system. This is also where you change your password.

    Avatar pictures. To add a custom picture of yourself or an avatar picture to your account, please click My Profile. Once on your profile, hover your mouse over the blank avatar. You will be shown a link to upload your avatar. Click on it and follow the instructions on the screen. If your avatar is too large, you will be able to crop the image to fit.

    Notifications. This tab controls how you are notified of new content you are interested in. You may manage your notification settings at User Settings. On that page, select the Notifications tab. On this page, you may select your Email Notifications (turn it on, make it daily or weekly, or choose to get it through the message center only). You may also set what type of Notifications you would like to receive.

    Password. To change your password, select Account.

    If you've forgotten you password you can click on the Forgot password or username link. It also appears in the Login or Signup box. You will be taken to a new page where you can enter your registered email. An email will be sent shortly to that email address with instructions on how to reset your password. Since passwords are saved in an encrypted format in the database there is no way to retrieve your actual password, it will be replaced with a new password. You must be able to receive emails to your registered email address for this to work. Again, it is important to tell your email program that emails from the domain should be on the white list and not go to spam. Please check your spam folder if you do not see this email in a few minutes.

    *Please note, if you're accidentally typing your username wrong ("pitboss" instead of "pit boss", or "SmokeyJoe1212" instead of "SmokeyJoe2121" for instance) you won't be let in. IT MAY NOT BE YOUR PASSWORD! Please double & triple check your username and password both before resorting to a password reset.

    Privacy. This allows you to control who has access to your information. You may manage your privacy settings by going to your username in the upper right corner > click to get the drop down > select User Settings. On that page, select the Privacy tab. On that page you may customize who can see and comment on things you started, replied, followed and following under your profile. You may select to show these things to Everyone (default), your Followers, or all Members.

Please don't put your street address here. All the fields from your First & Last Name down (including your mailing address) are NOT visible to anyone.

    Signature. You can set and change your signature by going to User Settings. On that page, select the Account tab and then go down to the area that says Conversation Detail Options. On the right side, you will see the option Edit Post Signature. If you click that link, you will get a popup editor that will allow you to enter/edit your signature. We like it when folks put their BBQ gear & accessories in their signature- it's a great way to show off your stuff, plus it also helps us understand your perspective if you have cooking questions, that way we know what you're using.

    You can use images in your signature. Use the Upload Attachments button while editing your signature in the signature editor popup. Please keep our guidelines in mind.

    Topics I Am Following. If you've 'followed' (subscribed to) any topics, they'll appear here.

    Username. You cannot change your Username. This is to prevent a troll from insulting someone and changing his name. Thankfully we have zero problems of this sort. If you need your username changed, for instance if you misspelled it or don't want your real name out there, email me at and I can let you know if I can accommodate your request.

    Email address. At this time you cannot change your email address on your own because it is linked to Stripe, the credit card processor, so we must change it for you so that we can change it in both systems at the same time. If you need to change your email address you can fill out the request here.
