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.

  • Mommy Bear and Daddy Bear were in divorce court.
    The judge looked down and asked the Baby Bear, "So Baby Bear, do you want to live with Daddy Bear?"
    "Oh, no," Baby Bear replied, "I don't want to live with Daddy Bear. He beat me."
    "Well then, you should live with Mommy Bear," answered the judge.
    "On, no, I don't want to live with Mommy Bear. She beat me."
    "Well then, Baby Bear, who do you want to live with?"
    Baby Bear said, "I want to live with the Chicago Bears. They don't beat anybody!"

    • NOTICE
      In light of the rising frequency of human/grizzly bear conflicts, the Montana Department of Fish and Game is advising hikers, hunters, and fishermen to take extra precautions and keep alert for bears while in the field.

      We advise that outdoorsmen wear noisy little bells on their clothing so as not to startle bears that aren't expecting them. We also advise outdoorsmen to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with a bear. It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear activity.

      Outdoorsmen should recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear poop. Black bear poop is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear poop is larger and has little bells in it and smells like pepper.

    • Subject: Senior Dress Code

      Many of us over 50 – WAY over 50 – are quite confused about how we should present ourselves. We're unsure about the kind of image we are projecting and whether or not we are correct as we try to conform to current fashions. And for those of you receiving this who are nowhere near 50 yet, keep reading anyway – you'll get there.

      Despite what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and Should be avoided: .....

      1. A nose ring and bifocals
      2. Spiked hair and bald spots
      3. A pierced tongue and dentures
      4. Miniskirts and support hose
      5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads
      6. Speedos and cellulite
      7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar
      8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor
      9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge
      10. Bikinis and liver spots
      11. Short shorts and varicose veins
      12. In-line skates and a walker

      And the ultimate 'Bad Taste' in fashion:

      13. A thong and Depends

      (Please keep these basic guidelines foremost in your mind when you shop.)

      Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance.

        I actually got out of my car recently at Sam's wearing white socks with shorts and sandals. I caught myself after about 5 steps and went back to the car to lose the socks, giving a prayer of thanks the whole time that none of the grandkids, especially the girls, were with me. They would have died a thousand deaths.

    • Just received this from a friend.

      God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh.
      He inquired, --- "Where have you been?"

      God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds,---- "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

      Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, ---- "What is it?"

      "It's a planet," --- replied God, --- and I've put life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test 'Balance.'"

      "Balance?" --- inquired Michael, ---- "I'm still confused."

      God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth.

      "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things..."

      God continued pointing to different countries. --- "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

      The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, --- "What's that one?"

      "That's Arizona , the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful trees and gardens, a beautiful river, and days filled with sunshine. The people from Arizona are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world.

      They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things."

      Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, --- "But what about balance, God? You said there would be 'balance'."

      God smiled, --- "I will create California???Wait till you see the idiots I'll put there."

        At the start I thought it was going to end up with "What can I get for just a rib?" as the punchline.

    • A new retirement home opened up in the community with separate floors for men and for women. After the first few weeks of being open all the residents were called into the recreation room so staff could explain the rules. It was emphasized that after hours there would be no men on the women's floor or women on the men's floor and anyone caught violating the rule would be fined $25 for the first offense, $50 for the second offense, and $100 for the third offense. A hand went up in the back of the room followed by the question: "How much for a season pass?"

        SEATS IN A FORD TRUCK..

        I stopped by the Ford Dealership yesterday in Platte City, Missouri, for a look at the new 2019 F-150..

        Just for fun, I took it out for a test drive.

        I wanted to sense that new truck "feel" before I get too old.

        The salesperson (a nice looking lady wearing a 'RESIST' lapel pin) sat in the passenger seat next to me, describing the truck and all its "wonderful" options.

        The seats were of particular interest.

        She explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat.

        Feeling like messing with her, I mentioned that this must be a (Insert political party of your choice) truck.

        Looking a bit angry, she asked why I thought it was a (same party as above) truck

        "I explained that if it were a (The other party) truck, the seats would just blow smoke up your ass year-round!"

        I had to walk back to the dealership but it was worth it.

          • Some Texans are mingling at the bar when an Oxford graduate walks in. “Howdy, stranger,” one Texan says. “Where are you from?”

            The Oxford graduate answers, “I come from a place where we do not end our sentences in prepositions.”

            “Oh, I’m sorry,” replies the Texan. “Where are you from, jackass?”
