GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

grill grates

GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

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.

    The man is still one of,if not the best, to ever play the game.
    He is an animal on the golf course.

      Don't watch don't play,but I love that he won again!

        To think, sports stars make that much money because they are good hitting balls with sticks or running with a ball. I wish important life saving jobs like paramedics, air traffic controllers & police got paid better.

          If Dustin Johnson couldn't hit a golf ball like he does, he wouldn't be qualified to pump gas.

        I didn't realize it, but his last major before today was two months before I got married.

          Tiger Who? Actually, I remember seeing him on Johnny Carson when it happened - not a replay. I am happy for him.

            It was funny trying to explain to my eight years old daughter why everyone was so excited that tiger won.. makes me feel old that I am cheering him on and she has no idea who he is!! Makes me feel did remind me of when I was about that same age watching the 85 bears beat the Patriots in the super bowl and asking my dad why they kept giving the ball to Walter Payton. All my dad said was " because he is the best damn running back ever". Kind of a role reversal from 33 years ago.. watching tiger embrace his kids was AWESOME and intense..

              I'm still ticked off at Ditka for giving the ball to the Fridge for a TD instead of Sweetness.

            Tiger is an incredible golfer. I watched a little on Friday and thought, “Dang, he’s looking pretty good.” Happy for him. After the struggles (personal and professional) he’s had in the last decade it’s nice to see him back on top.

              I tried golf once--shot a 39. Didn't go on to the second hole.

                I have never been a fan of the guy. But after some time away, I can't be mad at him, and he never did anything to me. It is good to see a good comeback story.


                • Top | #25
                  Yup wrote him off like everyone else, incredible sports come back. Now let’s see if he can chase Jack’s record, arguably the best golfer of all time.

                    The shot Tiger hit on 16 was incredible. Almost dropped in for the ace

                      This was amazing. One of the best moments in sports! Best thing for the game of golf in a decade. Upmost respect for the Golden Bear, the guy is beyond legendary, but I'd love to see Tiger shatter Jack's record! LFG!
