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

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. 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.

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

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.

    We didn't have a TV until I was 12. Three channels, all fuzzy. Didnt matter. We all sat around together and watched the thing. I like it better now. Everyone is in a different room and half of us don't watch TV.

      This is probably an old joke but I hadn't heard it before. My uncle was up from Myrtle Beach (he moved there few years ago) the other day and we were hanging out on the deck sharing some beers. After a few hours we'd hit beer #3, and after those were long gone I asked if he wanted another. He said "I'm cutting myself off at 3... nah make it 3:30, let's see how many I can drink until then". We were rolling on the floor.

          After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her shopping trips.


          Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - loves to browse & leaves me with endless time to fulfill.


          Yesterday she received the following letter, from the local Wal-Mart
          Dear Mrs. Cunningham:

          Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion, in our store.

          We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store.

          Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Cunningham, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras:

          1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people's carts when they weren't looking.

          2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

          3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.

          4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in House wares. Get on it right away'.

          This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time; and costing the company money. We don't have a Code 3.

          5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway.

          6. August 14: Moved a, 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

          7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.

          8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?

          9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

          10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

          11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while, loudly humming the 'Mission Impossible' theme.

          12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his, 'Madonna Look' using different sizes of funnels.

          13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'

          14. October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed; 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!'

          15. Took a box of condoms to the checkout clerk and asked where is the fitting room?


          16. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile; then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here.'

              I sent this to my daughter. She texted a photo two pairs of sunglasses on her head, writing "You don't need special glasses". She was trying to hook my wife - it worked. I copied this and replied when you posted it. My wife said "See". My daughter got the joke! She knows how gullible my wife is.

            A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre. After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings, and made it safely to his van. However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, โ€œMonsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh.โ€
