    • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

      Gents, I am planning on Global Warming! I can't tell you the number times I spent all night and most of the day plowing snow and sanding only to have the wind pick up and I'd get to start over. The more smoke ie. Carbon I can make the better! Sic. Dan

          74° in Hermosa Beach, California today. All is good. There's a free concert down by the pier this evening. Parking will be impossible so I'll ride my electric bike.😎

            mackdaddy .

            I bought it online on the Indiegogo website. Indiegogo is a crowd funding website like kick starter. I bought in early so I got the bike for $499, FOB China. The freight was $196. Google Sonders e-bike if you want one.

            They have gone up in price from when I ordered mine in February. They are now selling for $649 plus the $196 freight.

            It's a start up company. They guy that started this company is the guy that has supplied McDonalds with the little toys that come with kids meals. He's sourced product in China for 30 years so he decided he wanted to disrupt the pricing in the electric bike market. That he has accomplished. He sold 12,000 bikes in 60 days.

            I was nervous about getting my bike from his first production run because most factory's first production runs aren't great quality usually. He's delivered 1000's of bikes now and there are no complaints. My bike came to me exactly as advertised.

            My original thought was to use it to exercise my dog. I was using my peddle bike for that purpose. I get him to a slow trot and we go 2 to 4 miles a day. He loves the exercise and I much prefer pressing the button over peddling.😎 I now use it for all of my short trips around Hermosa Beach. It really is very handy.

              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

              the good one grill

              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.

              Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

              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!

              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.

Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

              masterbuilt gas 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'.
