    Engelbrecht Braten Gen IV 1000

    Not my dads grill. My Engelbrecht Braten showed up today and wow was I amazed. This thing is not just made amazingly it is packed amazingly. These guys have to love what they do. Ya the create was well built but that was just the beginning. Every piece was painstakingly shrink wrapped and so on. There was no shortcuts taken here.

    Now for the craftsmanship. The metal work is gorgeous. Every weld is right on and the finish work clean and tight.

    Ya I haven’t even cooked on it yet. May be a few days before I can muster up a few guys to help get this up on the deck. I’ll keep you posted but I’m happy so far. I just hope I can do this bad boy justice. Thanks Chris and team out at the shop for building this one just for me. It’s born on date is just one day after mine.

      Endless possibilities, whatever your hungry for I guess. A cooker like that deserves tomahawks for christening though.

            Wow, congrats! Yeah, I'd be tempted to christen it with a nice tomahawk or two myself. That sounds like a great first cook!

                Nice cooker! Welcome to the Pit! What's involved in getting that thing on your deck? I live in Thurmont but work in Gaithersburg. Do you need help? You may be able to build a ramp out of the shipping crate and roll it up.

                  Hey there, I appreciate the offer. I have a buddy coming over tomorrow so I think I am good. Glad to know I have a fellow member so close by. Do you go to Rocko Meats? I have been going to Hemps in Jefferson but not been so happy as of late. Any suggestions would be welcome. Happy to hook up some time. Thanks again.

                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.

                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.

                Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

                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.
