    Informed people's BBQ quotes

    Adam
    Spare Ribs anyone

    Shakespeare
    It is better to have burnt and lost than never to have BBQ'd before.

    Einstein
    Learn from yesterday's BBQ
    Live for today's BBQ
    Hope for tomorrow's BBQ
    The important thing is not to stop questioning why people would boil ribs.

    Buddha
    A BBQ that is developed and put into action is more important than a BBQ that only exists as an idea.

      When asked if it bothered her that Whitney Houston got all the props for signing her song "I Will Always love you."

      Dolly: "Hell no! Since I wrote it, I get the royalties....... and it costs a lot of money to look this cheap!"

                      A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

                      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                      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.

                      Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

                      the good one grill

                      The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                      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.

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                      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 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.
