maverick PT55 thermometer

A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

Click here for more info on the Maverick PT-55 Waterproof Instant-Read Thermometer Review shown above. It may be the best value in a thermometer out there


If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

the good one grill

The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

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

Placeholder

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

NK-22-Ck Grill

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.

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.

  • Two guys, one old, one young, are pushing their carts around Wal-Mart when they collide. The old guy says to

    the young guy, "Sorry about that. I'm looking for my wife, and I guess I wasn't paying attention to where I was

    going."

    The young guy says, "That's OK, it's a coincidence. I'm looking for my wife, too.. I can't find her and I'm getting alittle desperate."

    The old guy says, "Well, maybe I can help you find her... what does she look like?"

    The young guy says, "Well, she is 27 yrs. old, tall, with red hair, blue eyes, is buxom...wearing no bra, long legs, andis wearing short shorts What does your wife look like?'

    To which the old guy says, "Doesn't matter, --- let's look for yours."

    • HOW TO CALL THE POLICE ...

      WHEN YOU'RE OLD, AND DON'T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.

      George Phillips , an elderly man from Walled Lake, Michigan, was going up to bed, when his wife

      told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the

      bedroom window.



      George opened the back door to go turn off the light,

      but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.


      He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"

      He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me .


      Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy, you should lock your doors and an officer will

      be along when one is available"


      George said, "Okay."

      He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.

      "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed.

      Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot them both

      and he hung up.


      Within five minutes, six Police Cars , a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic and

      an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.


      One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

      George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

      ( True Story )


      Don't mess with old people

              It worked for me.

          • I was in a public toilet & had just sat down, when a voice from the next cubicle said "Hi!, how are you?"
            Somewhat taken aback, I said, "I'm doing fine.”
            The voice said "So what are you up to?"
            I said, "Um...just doing the same as you, sitting here."
            From next door, "Can I come over?"
            Suprised and a little annoyed, I said, “Eh...rather busy right now".
            The voice then said, "Listen, i will have to call you back, there's an idiot next door answering all my questions.”

              • Grammar Lesson: Is it "complete", "finished" or "Completely Finished”?
                No English dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference between these two words - "Complete" and "Finished”. In a recent linguistic competition held in London and attended by, supposedly, the best in the world, Samdar Balgobin, a Guyanese man, was the clear winner with a standing ovation which lasted over 5 minutes.

                The final question was: “How do you explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand? Some people say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED.”

                Here is his astute answer: "When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE. When you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And, when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!"

                He won a trip around the world and a case of 25-year old Scotch!
