      OK, let’s get this under control. That doesn’t mean you’re a Pitmaster, it means you have lost your mind. Hmmmmm, maybe the same thing.

    ...you have an ER doctor and 2 of the clerks who when they see you ask when you're smoking meat again, or who text you at least monthly to ask when, if they haven't seen you in a while.

    and on that note... when you have an ER doctor actually encourage you to KEEP smoking.

      When you look at a cut of meat you have never seen before and say "I think that would work with that piece of peach I just got from fruita". And your wife knows what you are talking about.

      When the windbreak you need to cook in Wyoming winters (or any time of the year) costs more than your grill.

        Lots of places in WY worse than here - Cheyenne, Casper, Wheatland. I was in Wheatland once when the wind stopped blowing. Half of the people in town fell down and the other half could get up.

      You're invited to a "garage warming" for a young man fixin to get married and your first thought is to get him a grill. Then you find out they're moving into an apartment that doesn't allow them so you get them an electric smokeless one. From Kohls. True story. Maybe I'll gift him a subscription to AR too.

        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.

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 amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.
