      Rubs and sauces from Veterans Q. They are a award winning competition barbecue team made up of military veterans and family members. 100% of their profits are donated to credible veteran organizations and groups. I’m so excited to try these out. Thanks Santa! 🎅🏻

        Due to the huge uptick in paper plate orders, it has slowed down all other types of deliveries.

      I am blown away. Panhead John got me amazing gifts, all of which I actually have been pining over for a while. I don't think I've posted about them though so I don't know how he did it.

      Last year my wife got me a sharpening stone, but I've been so intimidated by the process that I only tried sharpening for the first time a few weeks ago. The results were marginal at best, I think I couldn't keep a consistent angle. So I have a bunch of dull knives with no way to sharpen them, until now! I plugged in the electric sharpener tonight and sharpened my cleaver, and I'm going to sharpen the rest of my knives tomorrow! I'll still try to learn the stone, but this sharpener allows me to have the best of both worlds - sharp knives whenever I want and the ability to practice whenever I want, because I can always run them through this bad boy if I never improve.

      And speaking of knives, check out that slicer! When I opened it, my 3 year old said that I got a sword, and he's right. I will have to make sure he doesn't take it when we play pirates though... But honestly, I have always thought these slicers were so cool and secretly wanted one, but I figured my wife would say no. Now she has no choice 🤣

      Finally, the two (two!) bottles of Black Swan Beso del Fuego. I've looked on with envy for years at the rest of you enjoying it and recommending it, knowing that my family would never go for it, the spice wimps that they are. So that's three for three on gifts that i have wanted for a while but would never have actually bought for myself - the holy grail of gift giving.

      I knew Panhead was secretly a good guy with him taking care of his mother and everything (don't worry, I won't let on in the other threads), but this was way more than I was expecting.

      Merry Christmas to everyone in the pit family, you are all awesome and very generous as demonstrated in this thread. And a special Merry Christmas to Panhead John for the amazing gifts and for bringing your special brand of... whatever it is... to the pit.

      Jim White Thanks for the inspiration Jim. Meathead has always wanted more female members to the Pit and I agree. I’ve just come up with 3 ways to make our female membership skyrocket beyond our wildest dreams!
      1. We start a new channel called “Show Us Your Tights”. All male members will be encouraged to model their latest tights, yoga pants or spandex.

      2. We start a new streaming video platform titled “Grillers Gone Wild!” In this one we have all the male members cavorting around shirtless and performing all sorts of culinary hijinx.
      3. Start us a beefcakes calendar to be sold worldwide. “The Hunks of Amazing Ribs”. This would be in similar style of The Firefighters Calendars you see sold occasionally.

      Huskee I want a 30% cut for these ideas. I can envision our female membership getting to be 50% in no time.

      Secret Santa gift sent off to intended victim this morning via Purolator US gateway.
      Delivery date 12/17, which I find astounding with the amount of freight going thru the hub right now.
      Hopefully it arrives before the other fat man shows up.

        Got a PM, earlier this week, from my Secret Santa, warnin me of a scheduled delivery...a'ight, thanks fer th heads up

        So...I come home from work on Thursday, an when I rounded th corner of my motour garage, there on my front stoop sets a black box...from over 25 feet away, I recognicized what it was, an went all dizzy, an blurry, kinda weak in th knees, which some can interpret as a 'Bad Thing', especial when both yer hands are full, carryin stuff in, an ya have no viable way to ketch yerself on th way down

        Turns out, my Secret Santa is some kinda tall, handsome, an very gifted individual, who not only is a Masterful Cook, an also teaches BBQ Classes, makes offset smokers (in his spare time, when he's not ironin his cape ), but also has his very own line of BBQ Rubs!!! Oh, an to rub salt into my inadequacies, he also hosts a globally famous website of his own...(gulp)

        (A guy could git an Inferiority Complex, all up in here!)

        Oh, btw, turns out he's also associated with some kinda High-Fallutin, World-Reknowned BBQ website, as well.

        Now, to be quite honest, I'd never (previous, like) even seened me no SRF box, in person, much less ever actually touched one...jus don't happen, hereabouts...

        After I packed in alla my remnants, an byproducts of th day gone by, on into th house, there, I went back out front, kinda half thinkin th delusion would be gone, an my fever would eventually subside...

        Nope. Wasn't meant to be, I reckon; There it still set, Big As Life... Hmmmmm....

        Reckon I'll take it on into th house, pursue other tasks, an wait fer it to go right on ahead, an dematerialize... after a few hours of completin some required tasks, I craned my head round th corner, very cautiously...

        No Dice. It was still there, justa Double Dog Darin me to approach! Ulp! (Yikes, even)

        Wantin to err widely on th side of caution, (an equally not wantin to repair any sheetrock, scare th dog water outta Smokey Joe, or deal with overly-inquisitive local LEO's), I opted to grab my ever-present kitchen utility knife, an try my level best to make a 'stealthy' approach...

        Here's what I found: Pic 1: Top box is what we're talkin bout; bottom one came a few days previous...

        (Wonder why we'uns tend to gain weight, round th Holly Daze ??? )

        Now, th box weighed like it might contain mebbe a medium-sized fire safe, er summat akin to that, in mass, so I wasn't too dang dang sure what was might gonna pop all up outta there, once I cut that tape.

        I donned appropriate PPE (Safety glasses, gloves, steel toed boots was already on, Beloved Cowboy Hat (Hey, if'n yer gonna die, go out lookin all kinda spruced up, right? ) ) ,an warned th Cat to git th Dadgum Hail out from under my feets (like he ever listens, btw)

        I made very slow, calculated, an precise, well beyond surgical incisions through th nefariously fiberglass-reinforced packin tape, inch by inch, centimeter by centimeter... nerve-wrackin stuff, lemme tell yall...

        (My heart was alla thumpin like a Bonzo solo,longa bout this time!)

        Wail, yall...I gently, tenderly, even lovinly began to s l o w l y, ever so s l o w l y prise open th tabs of this here Mystery Box, as only somebody who's ever played wit IED's might be capable of.... No Pressure, right?

        Any yall ever seen EOD inspect / disarm a bomb???

        This was kinda like that, only s l o w er, an even more cautious...

        What greeted my (admittedly squinted) eyebulbs (even with th aforementioned ANZI 87.1 Rated Safety Glasses) was a bag. A tote. A poke sack, if ya will... Now I thought to myself, I thought "Self",(that's what I calls my danged ol self ), "Self, how In th Blue Blazes can that there bag weigh so danged much, even if it was designed to transport Gamma radioactive materials???"

        Click image for larger version  Name:	20201210_225558 (Custom).jpg Views:	9 Size:	882.0 KB ID:	955121

        Wail, Ol Self, he kinda mulled over it some, ciphered it all over, fer a spell, mebbe two, an sez back :"I don't rightly reckon that I has any kinda good answer to that..."

        Drat. Boned. (again)

        Thanks, Self!!!
        Wow. That, right there, was purty dang danged helpful, at th moment...

        Ever so cautiously, usin my second best pool cue, to provide some distancin (of th non social type), I gently fished that there bag out, ever so slowly, outta th aforementioned (an depicted) Black Box....

        Was I askeert? Hail, Nossir! <<<Bald Faced Lie, BTW

        Pucker Factour???? = Reckon John Henry, his danged self couldn't a drove a straight pin up my arse with a 25 lb. sledgehammer.

        (But other than that, I was cool as a cucumber lol )

        I tentatively fished th aforementioned bag outta th aforementioned Black Box (), an gently, (Oh So Gently) set it down on th floor.

        Whew! So far, so good!

        (Never mind th shakin, an th nervous beadsa perspiration that was runnin all kinda down my face, an some nether regions that're perhaps best left to th imagination...)

        Course, that made it in th domain of Th Cat, an he casually strolls up to it, all a sniffin, an such. (I had much th same swagger, when I was his equivalent age; nowadays I gimp around, on accounta where alla dat swaggerin led me, when I was a Young Man.

        Live, an (Ideally) Learn, right?)

        Underneath th seeminly insulated grocery tote sack, they was a plenitude of these bags marked "DANGER" an "DRY ICE", talkin bout all kinda mean, nasty, ugly thangs bout wearin gloves, an such...

        Yeah. That, right there, in itself relaxed th moment, fo sho!

        Click image for larger version  Name:	20201212_223050 (Custom).jpg Views:	9 Size:	540.8 KB ID:	955122

        Long story even longer ,

        Turns out to be that they was some kinda hunka meat typa sorta thingie, hidin right in plain sight, curled all kinda up underneath them DANGER Bags, whatever alla dat bidness was alla bout... .

        Initial testin showed it to be harder than a 3-peckered Billy Goat, so I removed it, ever so gingerly, out there, to my kitchen sink area, an took me a few pics, bout like so:

        Jus hopin I'm summat near worthy, once I light that fire...

        Many Thanks, once again, Brother Hank, AKA Henrik

        My most sincere an heartfelt best wishes go out to you and all those you love...

          I finally finished reading this post today.. bwahahaha. I was waiting to see if he used the box to send you a sweater.

          Good meat right there. Just don’t take it past medium and your set no matter how you cook it. Had a few of those myself.

        Well, I’ll never come close to Mr. Bones’ anthology, but anyway.... 5 weeks ago I saw a post from ZeroCredit about a new BBQ light he just bought. I entered into the post asking about a possible light for my 22” Weber Kettle, which I have a detachable side shelf for it. I mentioned that the only choice I could see that would work for me, would be a gooseneck type light with a clamp that could work with my shelf. We’re all tired of trying to grill in the dark these days. Well, in one of the best cases of “secret stalking” I’ve seen.....lo and behold, today I get this from SmokingSteve The LED Concepts BBQ Grill Light! I hadn’t bought one for myself in the meantime cause I just kinda forgot about it. I just now went back to that post from 5 WEEKS AGO, and Steve hadn’t even posted anything from himself there. He wasn’t even in that thread at all. Anyway, Thanks SmokingSteve for a well needed gift....it will be put to good use tonight!

          Nice gift! I couldn’t help but notice the bottle of lighter fluid on the shelf in the background, be sure to swing the light head away to keep from blackening the lens.......

            Thanks Mr. Bones. That’s a great Christmas message. I honestly think about him a bunch because my dogs love the BBQ and I had two going at about the same time two of his did.

          klflowers Thank you so very much Secret Santa Kevin
          Your very generous gift arrived moments ago.
          You must have read my post on no charcoal in stores around here and have come to my rescue.
          Ive never seen Fogo or Jealous Devil at any stores around here, Dickenson’s is a very highly regarded BBQ supply but I’ve never gone over to they’re location.
          Merry Christmas to you and yours and thank you again for these special gifts.
          It almost makes my sad to burn them....

            You are welcome. Merry Christmas to you guys too. I do remember your post about finding quality lump - I was kind of worried when I couldn't get a shipping date. I thought you might find some before that arrived.

            Panhead John, stalking is one of the better things I do, and I am looking for those plates. Just saying...

            Nice! I am just finishing up my first bag of JD and I love it. I grill on a wood deck and the two times I tried lump (I don't even remember the brands but I'm sure they were cheap) it was like watching fireworks so I gave up on it. Then I read that JD really doesn't spark when lighting so I gave it a shot and I'm impressed. Good size chunks and not a lot of shakeeven at the bottom. Looking forward to hearing how you like it.

          USPS sure is making my package exciting... on my end. Anyway, it looks like the first of 3 packages should be delivered tonight (says out for delivery to one lucky? person in AZ), the second package got lost and has no delivery time, and the last one to leave the company to get to USPS should be in AZ on Thursday.

          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!
