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!

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).

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.

    • Firefighters in Dublin responded to a call that the local pub was on fire. When they get there, there's a man walking out of the burning bar covered in cinder and ash. As the crew is putting the fire out, the fire chief asks the man if he knew what caused the fire in the pub. The man said no....it was burning like that when I walked in

      • The barkeep tells the last patron, "Paddy, you have to leave, it's time to close." So Paddy gets off his barstool and BAM! falls flat on his face. So he thinks, "If I can jus' get meself to the street the fresh air will perk me up." So he crawls out of the pub to the street, stands up, and BAM! falls flat on his face. So he thinks, "If I can just get meself home I'll be good as rain." So he crawls a few blocks to his house, stands up, and BAM! falls flat on his face. So he now thinks, "If I can get me up the stairs and into bed without waking up the Missus, she'll never know and I'll be right as rain in the mornin'" So he crawls up the stairs, crawls into bed, and looks over at his wife who is sound asleep. He breathes a sigh of relief and goes to sleep. The next morning he is woken by his wife standing over him, "So you spent all night in the pub again, did you?" Terrified he replies, "What on earth makes you think that?" Sternly she says, "The barkeep just rang. He says you left your wheelchair there again."

        We recently had a new neighbor call the local city council office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road.


        The reason: 'Too many deers are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.'

      • The pedestrian light on the corner beeps when it's safe to cross the street.
        I was crossing with an 'intellectually challenged' co-worker of mine.
        She asked if I knew what the beeper was for.
        I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.
        Appalled, she responded, 'what on earth are blind people doing driving?!'
        She is a government employee.....

      • We had to have the garage door repaired.
        The repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.
        I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.
        He shook his head and said, 'You need a 1/4 horsepower.'
        I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, 'NOOO, it's not. Four is larger than two.'
        We haven't used that repairman since...

          • Do Not Wash Your Hair In The Shower!

            It's so good to finally get a health warning that is useful. It involves the shampoo when it runs down your body while you shower with it. Shampoo Warning! I don't know WHY I didn't figure this out sooner!

            I use shampoo in the shower! When I wash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body, and printed very clearly on the shampoo label is this claim:

            "FOR EXTRA BODY AND VOLUME."

            No wonder I have been gaining weight! Well! I have gotten rid of that shampoo and I am going to start showering with Dawn dish soap instead. Its label reads:

            "DISSOLVES FAT THAT IS OTHERWISE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE."

            Problem solved!

            If I don't answer the phone I'll be in the shower.

              • POTATOES



                Well, A girl Potato and boy Potato had eyes for each other, and finally they got married, and had a little sweet potato, which they called 'Yam.'of course.



                They wanted the best for Yam.



                When it was time, they told her about the facts of life.



                They warned her about going out and getting half-baked, so she wouldn't get accidentally mashed, and get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,'
                and end up with a bunch of tater tots.



                Yam said not to worry, no spud would get her into the sack and make a rotten potato out of her!



                But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a couch potato either.



                She would get plenty of exercise so as not to be skinny like her shoestring cousins.



                When she went off to Europe, Mr. And Mrs. Potato told Yam to watch out for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland and the greasy guys from France called the French fries.



                Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't associate with those high class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all the trucks that say, 'Frito Lay.'



                Mr. And Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U. (that's Potato University) so that when she graduated she'd really be in the chips.



                But in spite of all they did for her, one-day Yam came home and announced she was going to marry Tom Brokaw.



                Tom Brokaw!



                Mr. And Mrs. Potato were very upset.



                They told Yam she couldn't possibly marry Tom Brokaw because he's just......



                Are you ready for this?



                Are you sure?



                OK!



                Here it is!
