Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

maverick PT55 thermometer

A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

Click here for more info on the Maverick PT-55 Waterproof Instant-Read Thermometer Review shown above. It may be the best value in a thermometer out there


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.

Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

the good one grill

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.

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only 9 delivered to your door!

The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers

Placeholder

The smart folks at ThermoWorks have finally done it: The Swiss Army Knife of thermometers, two in one. Start with the industry standard food thermometer, the Thermapen MK4, (Platinum Medal winner) truly instant (2 to 3 seconds) precise (+ or – 0.7°F). Then they built in an infrared thermometer ideal for measuring the temps of pizza stones, griddles, and frying pans (also great for finding leaks around doors and windows in your house).

Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

Char-Broil's Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you're off to the party! Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

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.

G&F Suede Welder's Gloves

Heat Resistant Gloves With Extra Long Sleeves Hold The Hot Stuff

If you're using oven mitts at the grill, it's time to trade up. Say hello to these suede welder's gloves. They're 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.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

grill grates

GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

kareubequ bbq smoker

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

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.

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.

PK 360 grill

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use.

      Picked up a couple of ribeyes at the butcher the other day. Seasoned with Montreal Steak Seasoning, sous vide bath at 131 for 2 hours, shocked in ice water while the coals caught, on the kettle to sear with another shake of MSS. The better half was very happy.

      I decided to slice one of the chuck roasts I smoked today. However, with other household things happening, I let the chuck hit 200 IT and I meant to pull earlier..around 190. Regardless, it was outstanding and the connective tissue & fat were edible (and yummy). The bark you see is the bottom bark. Top bark was even better. The SnS rocked the smoke ring.

ID:	631384 Weather hit 41 today, but my upstairs neighbor’s snow was melting on my deck. But, got a nice price on some SLCs that lived very nice lives, as far as pigs go. Rubbed with APL four seasons and the 2019 edition of PKB’s tweaks to MMD. Served with a Sonoma Mountain Pinot that I picked up in Sonoma last November, Sweet Baby Ray for the wife, Black Swan for me... not my greatest rib cook, but it’s February in Chicago and I made ribs.

      I smoked a 4 lbs whole packer. You heard right: 4 lbs. It was so tiny and thin compared to the 14 lbs boulders of beef at Costco. We got it as part of a half cow from a local rancher. I was surprised. It acted just like its bigger relatives. It took about 8 hours at 225-235 degrees. It went through a solid 2 hour stall. It tasted great, just smaller.

      Wanted to do a roto-chicken, but also to amp it up a little. Found a great recipe for Peruvian chicken that was delicious. Put a pan of red potatoes, beets, onions, and peppers underneath and they were equally good. Apologies for no "after" pics, but ya'll know what a chicken dinner looks like.

        Attjack I found this in a search. We really enjoyed the Peruvian rub, very garlic and cumin forward. Didn't quite get the crispy skin, bit will make adjustments. Will probably try all of these at some point. https://www.thespruceeats.com/top-ro...recipes-335869

        I do that as well. There's a briskie in the meat fridge waiting for me to get a little motivation. My childhood BF and his wife are spending President's Day weekend with us so that might be the best excuse.

      Brefuss, it's what's for breakfast. Haven't made omelets in ages and just had a hankerin. Recently finished a load of bacon so that was the main ingredient along with cheese (duh), diced tomatoes, sauteed onions and shrooms, and topped with a sprinkle of shredded Romano. Not pictured so as not to raise you-know-who's blood pressure is a nice line of cat soup on the hash browns. Mmmmm.....caaaaat.......soooooouuuup.......

      I pretended I still lived in California and it was summer time and cooked NY strips, baked potatoes, and artichokes .... PS if you don’t know, artichokes are perfect when you steam them, not boil them. Throw a bay leaf, lemon wedge and some sliced garlic cloves in the water and steam for about 30 minutes. Cooked the steaks to medium rare for me and medium+ for my wife .... reversed the grill grates so I had a flat, screaming hot griddle .... man, talk about a sear happening in just 1 minute per side.

        Yeah I saw your pic from Belgium. I would love to visit that area and tour some of the WWII sites. My childhood BF's Dad (my "other" Dad") was a tank commander in Patton's 3rd and was with Abrams when they made their fateful trip to relieve Bastogne.

        CaptainMike Since I go to Belgium occasionally for work I've had the opportunity to visit Bastogne, the cemetery where Patton was buried, and some of the WW1 stuff. It's pretty awesome.
