      • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

      So sorry Jake. Tough days, and the house isn't the same. What a beauty!

        You can take comfort in knowing that he is no longer suffering . His life's main goal was to make you and your wife happy and you returned the favor by stopping his pain and suffering. I have a herd on the other side of that bridge waiting and while the 2 I have now are still here they get brisket a couple times a year, I figure it is a small token for what they give me

                              Sorry for your loss - we had one a few months back. Now you need to head down to one of the local shelters and find yourself something that looks like a pit bull (most of them do). Take that doggie home and feed it well - in memory of those who have gone before! Loyal and true - 100%.

                                Sorry to hear the news Jake. We're only 3 months down the road from having to put our beloved Dimebag down, he was 13 and blind, had diabetes, which was getting harder to control. I feel your pain.

                                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
                                We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                                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.

                                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.

                                masterbuilt gas smoker
                                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                                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.
