      • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
        1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
        2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
        3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
        4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
        5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
        6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
        7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
        8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
        9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
        10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
        11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
        12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
        12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

        Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

        I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
        I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.

                      Awesome gifts. Looks like you had a fantastic holiday season. I do have a question though that if anyone can help with I'd appreciate. The wood handled item in the foreground appears to be a grate cleaning tool or perhaps a tool to lift a hot grate. I would like to get more information on it's use and where to purchase.

                        It's a grate lifter. I have an ancient one that came with my old Broil King gasser (which lasted for 14 years!) But it's getting a little worn now so she got this one from Amazon. It's the easiest tool I've found for handling grates, hot or cold.

                      I got the same knife sharpener for Christmas. First test will be trying to sharpen the knives at my parents - currently they won't cut melted butter...

                        It works very well but I'd advise watching the YouTube videos first and read the manual carefully. I've sharpened a bunch of kitchen knives this morning and every one of them are now razor sharp, apart from one I left a little rougher for skinned veg like tomatoes.

                          By the way, those Beast Armor gloves are great .... I pick up briquettes and move them around in the firebox without a problem at all.

                          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.

                          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
                          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.
