    A Compliment for a Change

    Many of us, myself definitely included, just this channel mainly as an arena to bitch about things we don't like. So I thought I would take the opportunity to give those behind the scenes a compliment for a recent changes that I like (and which fixed something I didn't like!) I just noticed that there is now a notifications counter which appears on top of the hamburger menu when you have new notifications. I like that very much. Thanks to all who share responsibility for this improvement.

    Constructive criticism. Never the "B-Word."

    Agreed, being somewhat of a doofus when it comes to computers or anything technical for that matter, I've found it easy to get around and do what I want.
    Haven't had to call the 7 year old next door to help me yet.
    Good work people.

        Fireboard: The Ultimate Top Of The Line BBQ Thermometer

        Fireboard Labs Product Photo Shoot. Kansas City Commercial Portrait and Wedding Photographers Kevin Ashley Photography
        With the ability to monitor up to six temperatures simultaneously with either Bluetooth or Wifi on your mobile phone, tablet, or computer, Fireboard is the best digital thermometer weve tested.

        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemps dial from 175 to 350F 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.

        GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone


        GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


        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.

        Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker


        Green Mountains portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But its also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.

        Heat Resistant Gloves With Extra Long Sleeves Hold The Hot Stuff

        If youre using oven mitts at the grill, its time to trade up. Say hello to these suede welders gloves. Theyre heat resistant enough to handle hot grill grates, and flexible enough to handle tongs. The extra long sleeves even let you reach deep into the firebox to move hot logs without getting burned. Our Fave.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


        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.
