    RENAMED: Gold Medal Giveway is now the "Great Giveaway" Monthly Sweepstakes!


    We have renamed our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway to the "Great Giveaway" Monthly Sweepstakes.

    Nothing but the name has changed. To see the basic rules and some FAQs, click here.


    Why the change?

    With the recent addition of Platinum Medals to our growing list of medal-winning gear, not all of the prizes are Gold Medal winners, some have been upgraded to Platinum. This renders the name Gold Medal Giveaway limiting and outdated. We tossed around some ideas, and ultimately Meathead chose "Great Giveaway". (He did not care for my idea of "Supercalafragalisticexpealadocious Giveway"). You may also have noticed that the "Gold Medal Spotlight" sidebar has been renamed to a more concise "Spotlight" for the same reasons, it now contains products we love which are both Gold and Platinum winners.


    As we always say- MAKE SURE the email address you gave us when you registered is one that you check regularly, AND make sure we are whitelisted or added as a contact in your email's settings. A couple times every year we have members who do not answer my "You've Won!" email and miss the legal deadline and we have to re-draw. Don't let that happen to you! If you need to change your email, there's a link on your My Membership page to do that.

        That's right. Last summer Mr. Bones won, and one other time a contingent winner (whom we didn't award because the first winner finally responded in the nick of time) was another well-known active member. It does happen. All completely random.

                          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.
