        Good looking soy beans compared to what we had here with the late start to the growing season.

          It’s interesting that this fella pretty much Farms the way his grandfather taught him, 3rd generation. His crops are healthier looking than the mega farms around him. He also gets a higher yield & they don’t understand. They think their soil is better. They’ve grown dumb from the university influence.

                  I was up in Ontario, Canada, fishing and it was feeling a lot like fall! The poplar was changing big time, wind was cool and out of the north at 20 MPH. (Which made for a great Walleye chop, which resulted in us slaying those suckers!)

                  At home, the Sugar maples are changing and the mornings are in the upper 50's. I have no doubt that old man winter is peering around the corner at us. Fall is my favorite season so it is not a big deal for me.

                  That Minnesota Winter..........that battle must be prepared for, especially in the north country.

However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.

                        * - Wines - Reds: mainly the heavy stuff mixed in with the occasional pinot noir ( I have yet to meet a malbec I didn't like); Whites: German & Nebraska (hey, I have to support the home team)
                        * - Favorite Spice outlets - Frisco Spices in LaVista, NE (the local butcher supply shop); Volcanic Peppers in Bellevue, NE

                      FireMan One of local weather dudes is from Wiscy and was talking about it getting down to 35° up there. It's too danged early for me for the weather to be that cold, even though it's just for one night. On the flip side it signifies football season is here.

                      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.

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.

                      masterbuilt gas smoker

                      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.
