    Pitmaster Club MEAT-UP, Special Hot From The Pit, 8/2/2016

    Special Edition:
    First-Ever Pitmaster Club MEAT-UP!
    The Bahamas, February 23-26, 2017

    Meathead, here!

    We're thrilled to announce our very first Pitmaster Club Meat-Up!

    Since the launch of the Pitmaster Club in July 2014 we've wanted to incorporate in-person social and educational gatherings to serve the great community we've grown online.

    Well, GrillGrate founder and CEO, and Pitmaster Club member, Brad Barrett, has invited all of us to the Bahamas to celebrate GrillGrate's ten-year anniversary.
    It's February 23-26, 2017, at the Green Turtle Club Resort & Marina, on Green Turtle Cay in the Bahamas. The four-day event is a great blend of relaxation, celebration, and education. Many of your beloved Pitmaster Moderators will join in the fun, too, and fun it will be! Grilled local seafood, cookoff with steaks from Snake River Farm, pizza grilling on the beach, Joule sous vide, wood fired burgers with the BioLite Grill, dancing under the stars, an island cruise excursion to Munjack Island to check out the swimming pigs, with plenty of leisurely time to dive, snorkel, fish, socialize, and drink!

    This grillin' n' chillin' experience will be open for sale exclusively to the Pitmaster Club until August 15. There are only 100 rooms available. Brad has called it "Meathead In Paradise" but I'm thinking of it as our first-ever Pitmaster Club Meat-Up because I know we're gonna sell it out! On August 15, Brad will open registration to his customers and then the public. He is giving us a head start, so let's make it ours! I want to meat you face to face!
    The registration fee is $300 and it includes many of the meals and non-alcoholic drinks, and the special room rate at the resort is only $199/night, single or double occupancy, so bring your spouse!

    Click here to see the full schedule, photos of the Green Turtle Club Resort, and register to receive more information.
    We realize that the cost and length of time away may be prohibitive. Don't fret. We are planning other Pitmaster Club Meat-Ups in the US. As always, your input is welcome.

    Yours in 'cue,

Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. 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.

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.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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.
