    My BBQ Quilt!

    My long time GF (ok, we've been married 43 years) is a quilter. Having made quilts for all 6 kids, 9 grandsons, mother, etc, she finally got around to surprising me with one. It is roughly queen size and BBQ theme. If you look carefully the quilting has little flames. All the panels have sauces, cuts of meat, sausages, etc. I am pretty happy!

                    That is incredibly thoughtful and then there is the craftsmanship which far exceeds it! My girlfriend at the time now wife made me a Chicago Cubs themed quilt while we were dating. One of the many reasons I married her. I’m sure you’ll treasure it for a long time.

                            Love it. My mom made quilts for all her kids (40 yrs) ago. We all cherished them. Kudos to your GF.

                              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.

                              Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                              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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                              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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                              NK-22-Ck Grill

                              Their 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.

                              Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
