    Spring Cleaning

    Haven’t posted much the last couple weeks, heck I haven’t cooked much either come to think about it. The past couple weekends I got a wild idea......after 23 years of collecting things that I just couldn’t live without...ha. I decided to clean the garage out and give it a head to toe makeover. Well, at least as much as I could afford.

    Hears the before picture when we started.

    All new metal cabinets, galvanized pegboard and a big drop down ceiling storage rack, everything now has its place. I really love my new workbench, that thing is awesome.
    Thanks to my two sons and a 4yrd dumpster I have a pretty usable space again. Had to have that dumpster emptied twice!!!
    Now if this rain ever stops I can start building a cover over part of my deck for the smokers and grills.

    Oh, my other helper....he was taking a break from chewing on the tennis ball...😂😂

I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

          Macomb is about 4.5 +- hours North of us. All the small ponds, lakes and quarry’s here hold some great fishing.

          More than one!! The water in those quarries is crystal clear in the early spring and can produce some great fishing memories.

          Frankly, I don't know what I would do with myself if I were that organised. What would I do with all those extra hours I now spend looking for things? For my sake I hope my wife doesn't see these pictures!

              LOL HouseHomey There is a saying, 'A person will collect things in proportion to the amount of area they have.' I have ten acres on the farm, plus five houses in town. Two garages, two large shops, four outbuildings, and one basement. And I live up to that saying!

              oh yeah, any space I leave open, she commandeers right away. When we were dating, when I finally asked her to move in, she already had, one hanger at a time!

            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.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            the good one grill
            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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.

            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
            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!

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
            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 because temperature control is so much easier.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            Grilla pellet smoker

            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

            PK 360 grill
            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            kareubequ bbq 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.

            NK-22-Ck Grill
            Napoleon's 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.
