    New grill on order.

    Been researching Santa Maria style grills for what seems forever and finally decided now was the time. Ordered a 36” Santa Maria style grill from Lone Star Grillz today. Added the brasero, front access door, and a few other options. Really looking forward to it, and yes, I blamed you all for making me do it.πŸ™‚ Kathy said she knew it was coming because of all the photos I kept showing her from Pit and the members.

                Well since we are to blame I think we should be invited for the first tri-tip! ;-)

                I'll catch up with one of these days (no pun intended). My problem is I keep seeing different ones to complicate my decision. Most recent the Hamrforge 'El Padre'.

                  I know! What a beautiful thing to have an El Padre in the backyard. However by the time I ordered it and it got here I would probably be paying a 100% tariff. I am going to Toronto in few weeks but I don’t think the airlines would allow it as checked baggage on the return trip.

                  Donw To my knowledge most airlines do allow 66lbs of checked baggage though so you could go that route. There is a penalty if you go over but if its only a few pounds may be worth it.
                  If you are staying in downtown Toronto check out Cherry Street BBQ in the Portlands. The wife and I went tried it last month, well worth the drive.
                  A trip to Steamwhistle Brewing in the Distillery district would be another neat outing.

                      Just the tools, the tool hanger option on the rear and the side table. The main options like the brasero and access door were the major options I mentioned. I’m debating whether to get their cover or make a custom one.

                        Placeholder

                        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.

                        Placeholder

                        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.

                        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 PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                        Placeholder

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                        Placeholder

                        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        Placeholder

                        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.
