Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

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

slow n sear

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.

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).

Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

Placeholder

Char-Broil's Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you're off to the party! Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

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. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

G&F Suede Welder's Gloves

Heat Resistant Gloves With Extra Long Sleeves Hold The Hot Stuff

If you're using oven mitts at the grill, it's time to trade up. Say hello to these suede welder's gloves.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

grill grates

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

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.

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.

PK 360 grill

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use.

    Soooo I just got stopped by the the Brentwood police Dept. I already knew why he got me (speeding, as expected, hahaha) but of course I was going to ask him why he stopped me. I've gotten a few speeding tickets before so I decided to test my luck and humor.
    About a week ago, I purchased some fart spray on Amazon to prank my friends. The bottle says to squirt about 2 sprays. Well as the Officer walks toward my car, I nervously sprayed about 5 squirts! Oops! He gets to my window and asks me to get out. I said I can’t! He immediately stops in his tracks and he says, “Good Lord ...what’s that?” I said, “I’ve got a situation sir!”
    The look on his face was priceless. I said, “Sir my stomach hurts and I’m trying get home because I....” (he is at my window and I didn't even finish my sentence) He grabs his face, backs up and says... “Oh my!! I think you need an ambulance.” I screamed “NO!!!!” (of course trying not to laugh...he looked worried and sick 🤣)
    Officer: “BE CAREFUL AND TRY NOT TO SPEED BUT I UNDERSTAND ITS AWFUL. HOLD ON....I’LL ESCORT YOU!” AND YA’LL, HE FOLLOWED ME HOME!!!!
    I didn't expect it to go this way but the Officer waited until I got out of the car (he stayed in his) so I had to waddle all the way to my door with my butt cheeks clinched and limpin’ like I was hurtin’! No ticket written!

      Pete and John hit a bar and John gets totally hammered and proceeds to throw up on himself. John slurs to Pete, "My wife is going to kill me for puking on myself". Pete says to John, "Put $10 in your pocket and tell your wife that I puked on you and gave you $10 for dry cleaning". John agrees that is a great idea.

      John gets home and sure enough his wife starts yelling at him for puking on himself. John hands her the money from his pocket and says, "Pete threw up on me but he gave me $10 for the dry cleaning". John's wife says, "Then why did you give me two $10 bills"? John say, "Oh yeah, he also shit in my pants"!

              So I asked the bartender, “What’s the WiFi password?”
              He says, “You need to buy a drink first.”
              ”Okay, I'll have a Guinness.”
              ”Coming up...that’ll be six bucks.”
              ”Let’s just open a tab.”
              ”No problem.”
              ”Cool...so what’s the WiFi password?”
              ”You need to buy a drink first. No spaces, all lowercase.”

                Last night I ate a salad for dinner.
                Lots of croutons & tomatoes.
                Well, mostly croutons & tomatoes.
                Really just one big crouton with tomatoes.
                Ok, a big round crouton with tomato sauce.
                And cheese.
                Fine, it was a pizza,
                I ate a pizza.
