    I posted this exact thing on the Pit Barrel page, really leaning toward this.


      I like the idea of a magnetic spice rack. I came across this a few months back. This would stick to my backsplash just fine.

        Wow, John! Where did you find that? I want it! Also, are you ready for Broncos-Chiefs showdown this year? You're on the wrong side of it, but that's ok...

      That really looks nice Jon. That is a grand idea.


        They sell those at Ikea, but all of the ones I found were a bit small for me. I ended up getting glass pickling jars (like little mason jars) and I stuck magnets to the top, you can get sheets of magnetic material with adhesive on one side.

        I am ready for the game, though I'm not super confident in the secondary we'll be fielding. This is the first season in probably 15 years that i'm actually a little worried about the Raiders... they really drafted well.
        I hate the Bronco's of course but Manning is in my top 3 of all time, so I have to cheer for him silently. I will be at the Raiders, Bronco's and the MNF Patriots game this year.


          Tell me John, Why can't the Chiefs get any respect around the league. They are always in the hunt but, the media just doen't give them any credit or what they have done recently.


            Maraunderer, here's a photo of my prep table. I looked this one up on Winholt and it's very pricey. A used on from a restaurant supply store is a better bet. This one came from a closed grocery store.


              Bo, That is gorgeous. That is in the park for what I am looking fo. I bet you have really gotten use to that and it would hurt your style to be without it. Yhanks for the pic.

                Thanks, Barry... The table is a multi-taskers

              If you go to the article on Outdoor Kitchens you can see the SS unit on wheels that I had built for about $5,000. My concern was for storage since we buy so many gadgets to test. It goes against a wall that has 4 GFCI outlets, overhead lights, and a fire extinguisher (inportant!). Didn't neet 2 paper towel holders. http://amazingribs.com/BBQ_buyers_gu...r_kitchen.html

              You can get them built with warming drawers, etc. But I just wanted gadget storage. I do all food prep indoors where there are no flies.


                Mh I saw that but, sigh, my budget cannot support a price like that (I was wondering how much it cost). So I will be forced to build something myself. I figure between $1-2K trying to keep it on the lower side or the range. Your unit is very nice and for it size and what you have on it the price isn't bad either. There wasn't anything on that Design your own kitchen that was soso. I sure can appreciate them and am glad for those that have the disposable income to be able to purchase those kitchens and items. What ever I build i will post it in the PIT so others can learn and use the ideas.

                      Thanks Barry. I may have choked up a little bit when I read that. Our secret


                        Yep!! You got it. I just took to Butts out of the freezer, about 19 lbs, and hope to have it smoked by next weekend. I have lots of threads to post like the Fried Shrimp, Onion Rings, and Corn on the cob we had last night. So much to do and so little time to do it and I have to finish rebuilding the Allison Transmission in my Truck.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                        Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                        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 because temperature control is so much easier.

                        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.
