    As I do every month when the winner is announced I looked over the prize list to decide what I would have chosen. This time I was surprised to realize that instead of the Hasty Bake, or my more recent consideration the PK, I would probably choose the Blaze 3 burner gas grill. I like my 2 burner Weber Spirit, but a third burner, and a higher end gas grill would probably be a sensible upgrade.

      After ponderin considerable, ruminatin on where I'm goin, an wanna go with my cookin, I am delighted to announce that I will choose th Good One Open Range cooker as my prize.

      Hope that sets okay with yall.

      I been sorely tempted, multiple times, by GOOR's on CL, from $350-$600, even went an looked at a few.
      Somehow, I always jus barely managed to keep it in my trousers. (My wallet, ya degenerates! )

      Usually, th deal breaker was that th New Gen has a reversible lid, an I am an options kinda guy.

      Yup, I savvy Brother Brad could weld it up, 6 ways to Sunday, anyhow I want, but, weirdly enough, they now make one jus like that, brand-spankin new, with a warranty, an now, (however freaky it may still seem to me!!!!!), FREE!!!!!

      So, there yall have it.

      Thanks don't even begin to cover it!!!!!

      I wanna take this moment to thank all yall fer yer outpourin of support, and kind words.
      Reckon I'ma pour me a few fingers, an go set out front, watch fer th delivery truck lol!

      With my very best regards to yall!!!!

    The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood.

    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.

    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

    Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. 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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

    The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers

    Placeholder

    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 Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    NK-22-Ck Grill

    Their NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

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.

    kareubequ bbq smoker

    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.

    Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

    masterbuilt gas smoker

    Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
