    LSG Santa Maria arrived today

    It seemed like a long wait but my 36” Santa Maria grill was delivered today and I am very happy with it. The accessories I added to the base model were a 24” stainless shelf, a front drop down door to give me better access to the fire, the brasero, a custom cover and the Argentine style grates with a drip pan. Shipping weight was 658 pounds and it was solidly crated so there was no damage even after passing through 4 separate trucking companies. Because of the weight I had two young guys standing by with plywood, a pallet jack and strong muscles, but the delivery guy went out of his way to drop it on a concrete sidewalk on the side of the house. He was tipped really well since otherwise we would have had to drag it down a gravel driveway. Right now we have a low fire burning in it, per instructions, to help cure the paint and do a first seasoning.

        That is a fantastic unit. Who made it? I really like the fact that they raised the charcoal grates - it really keeps the fire nice and hot. The Argentine grills on top are fantastic as well. I love the side brasero.

          Thanks. I didn't see the LSG in the title - duh. Man, I'm a little slow on the uptake.

          Congrats. That is one beautiful looking rig. They really go overboard with their packing. You could have built a small shed out of all the 2x4's and plywood my 24x36 offset came with.
          Good luck with it. And looking forward to some cook pics.

                        Very nice, and quite astute spending your barbershop funds on a grill! ;-)

                        Did you ever get a hookaroon?

                        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                        slow n sear

                        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.

                        The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                        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.

                        Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                        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.

                        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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        NK-22-Ck Grill

                        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.

                        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.
