    Well my gift (or haul) came in yesterday from CaptainMike . Many thanks Mike (and yes Mike, at first I did think you sent me a blood pressure cuff ). I've never cooked on a Phat Mat, nor ever tried Hanks beef rub (gonna try it out on a steak tonight ). Looking forward to both. Also needed back up tongs and gloves. And to top it off, I got some homemade Jalapeno jelly and smoked cayenne powder.........WOW! Can I let you know when my birthday is??

    Again, many thanks Mike and to all the Amazing Ribs pitmasters. You have all made me a better cook. Happy Holidays to all and to all Grill On!!!

      Jfrosty27 tried the original sauce when making some chuckie cow candy. Really impressed. Typically not a huge fan of most sauces but this was really good! Looking forward to trying the others. Thanks again.

    mrteddyprincess - I went Saturday and bought 2 inch pork chops, cut from the hog with your gift certificate. I treated this thing like gold. Brined in pear and Basque sauce. Injected with the strained reserve. I made a white wine, cranberry reduction over the fire. It turned out better than I could get anywhere. Thank you again!

      ecowper - it is fun. Jim White - thanks. Those streaks of injection you see not only kept it moist but infused sweetness throughout the chop.

    clb239 Chris!!! What a cool gift this is! I love reading about the history of food, especially the local ties to food and these books are perfect for that! I’ve really enjoyed the east coast style BBQ, and almost prefer that over others that I’ve tried so these books will be fabulous to read. And the sauce book! I can’t wait to give this a go! And sauces, you can never have enough so this will be fun to read and see what new styles I can pick up!

    AND the GC to Malcolm Reed’s shop! I’ve never looked at his shop, but a quick peak and there are some great options!

    Thank you so much for this wonderful Secret Santa Christmas Present - even my wife has been excited hearing me talk about what has been gifted. I have really enjoyed this event and love the personal touch you brought! Thank you again!

        tbob4. Never used the mix before, but I usually crush a couple baskets of 'em at the restaurant. My wife now makes a "copycat" version, but we use applesauce instead of egg due to my daughter having an egg allergy.

        As far as white sauce goes, it's a little different everywhere you go, but Meathead's recipe is very good.

        Hey guys. This is my gift...lol...I will be tasting everything very carefully. Especially the Gibson and Dreamland Sauce. I used the Greek seasoning tonight already. It is awesome. I am a huge biscuit lover so I can’t wait for those. My wife is thrilled about the Habanero BBQ sauce. I’m a connoisseur of sauces. Love 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 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.

      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

      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.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      NK-22-Ck Grill
      Napoleon's 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.
