          When I opened the post, I could have sworn I heard a drum roll, and a Michael Buffer-like voice say and now, entering the winners circle, weighing... well, lets skip that part. Then I didn't read klflowers. Dagnabit!!!. Well, congrats, Delspit.

                klflowers expressed my first thought so eloquently, “Dagnabit.” Still congratulations on your win and there is always next time for the rest of us.

                  OMG! I WON! I never win anything this made my day when I received the email. I most first start by saying thank you to all the members on the site for all the great information provided, I have used many of the great recipes and have used the great product reviews to make many happy purchases, and is responsible for me becoming my own pit boss here in this sleepy NH town. (at least I am in my mind)

                  This couldn't have come at a better time, my Napolean gas grill finally gave up the good fight and needs to finds it's way to the gas grill graveyard.

                  So with that said I am going to select the Blaze Cart Mounted 25" 3 Burner Gas Grill Freestanding Gas Grill

                  This will makes it home right next to my Yoder YS640 smoker, I am looking forward to firing it up.

                  Thank you all again for your contributions.

                            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 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.
