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 9 delivered to your door!

The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers


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

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.

GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. 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

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

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.

    Order Pitmaster Club Embroidered Team Shirts

    This is my new standard “uniform” team shirt. It is a classic retro "camp shirt" with beautifully embroidered Pitmaster Club logo on the right breast 3.75” high, and 9.5” high on the back. There is a left front pocket with your name embroidered above it.

    A relaxed fit made from no-fuss fabric blend, 75% polyester and 25% rayon, medium weight, soft, feels like cotton, with a stain and soil-release finish, and faux-coconut shell buttons. The bottom is a squared off long tail with side vents so it looks nice tucked or untucked. It is dressy enough for me to wear on my television appearances, to restaurants, but I am not afraid to wear it when cooking because it is wash and wear, wrinkle free. Really. I have a white one I have washed at least a dozen times without any fading. The embroidering has a lightweight polyester backing, but it is not scratchy at all. Available in white, pale blue, celery green, and black, from small to 5XL and in ladies sizes. It's not cheap because there is a LOT of embroidery (we don't make any money on it), but it is very cool.

    The shirt is AWESOME! Unfortunately they do not come in tall or big sizes so if you're sporting a proud belly or are on the tall side the shirt may end up too short as has happened to me all too many times...

      The sizing chart shows an XL for a 52 chest. That seems odd to me. My suits are all 52, and being big (portly?) and tall I've always worn a 3x. I can wear a classic or portly suit just fine.

      I'm going with the 3x and assume I'll be happy.

      Welcome to the Pit! Your first post here just gave me the push to order a shirt too. Something I’ve thought about but never got around to doing.

    How much is Charlie Sheen paying us for the link on our BBQ Shirts page, to his shirts? Is that the $$ that 'saved' the club?

    We could have done better than Charlie Sheen. Kermit comes to mind.

      Huskee I think he is talking about how the shirt website features Charlie Sheen... right at the top. They have an entire Charlie Sheen collection on there.

    So I was just about to order one of these, and went through most of the process. I was enthused that the site had free shipping, knowing that likely didn't apply to Canada, but figured the shipping would be reasonable. Imagine my shock. I'm still going to order one, but I'll wait until my next trip to the Microsoft mothership. And yes, I'm aware that AR has no control over this, just venting a bit.

      Thanks Huskee. As a resident of the Great White North, I'm more than used to this kind of thing. Still sucks, but it is what it is. I'm in the lower 48 frequently enough that I often just have things shipped to my hotel.

      pkadare I live on the border and there are several businesses that specialise in receiving packages for Canadians. Of course you have to be close enough to make it worthwhile, or plan a shopping trip to the States.

      Thanks ComfortablyNumb i'm familiar with those. Shipping to my hotel is a lot cheaper, or, if I can't be guaranteed it will arrive while I'm there, I ship it to a coworker.

    I'd prefer a short sleeve made with a Columbia omni-shade tee. I have no use for polyester in central Florida.

      Agreed, a light weight version would be awesome. Especially with the heat.

    pkadare Thank you for giving this thread a bump! I am going to have to send a letter to Santa so I will have a shirt to wear in Memphis.


    • Top | #7
      It is not very heavy. They have other lighter weight shirts that you could probably ask them to customize with our design. Here I am this weekend in 100F heat standing behind 3 1000F chimneys for 4 hours. I drank a lot of beer, and sweated from my head a lot, but shirt remained fairly dry.
