                      Holey Charcoal Grill Cover!! A CHARTER MEMBER WON!!!! The algorithm for picking a winner must be corrupted. I blame Huskee whether it is his "fault" or not.

                      OR

                      This is definitive proof that old fahts can win. Whatever, CONGRATS!

                      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.
