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.

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.

    I cooked up 6 racks of ribs and a chuck roast for my son's birthday party. Both turned out excellent. I cooked the chuck roast for 3-4 hours on the WSM and then 40 min in my instant pot. Somehow I forgot to take a picture of the chuck. My sister made the R2D2 cake which was awesome.

        Making a batch of Chili - had to try out my new CI Camp Chef Golden Spike; so far, it is just wonderful. Working at 375 degrees to brown onions and meat, then add juices and down to 180 degrees for some smoke. It takes some time to come down to low temp with that big chunk of hot cast iron in there. My wife is helping with recipe that is to her liking; occasional little battle here and there, but nothing out of normal. Click image for larger version

          Questions: Homemade empanada dough or store bought? If home, what'd you use to cut? Those look very nicely done and I'd like to improve my efforts over my New Year's Em-pie-Nadas with pie dough cut too small.

          Potkettleblack - these are store bought. Haven’t made a tons of empanadas and I’ve always used store bought, the Goya empanada discos. One day I’ll make homemade dough and see if it’s worth it.

        A collaborative effort on the cheesecake. Jill made the crust and whipped up the filing, so that left me with the difficult task of pushing the buttons on the Instant Pot. Don't pay attention to the little brown spots. Some of the crust must have broke free.

          Well, its exciting times over hear in Scotlandshire. My year and a half journey to open my own smokehouse and BBQ is really getting down to the "nut cutt'n"

          Tinged with some worry about my great chum Danjohnston949 - get well soon buddy, keep emailing me the RV deals!

          Assuming we get the bank approvals we expect this week, then it will be full steam ahead, towards opening Meat Monster's 400sqm Smokehouse and Social Seating space in Ellon, Aberdeenshire.

          Over the last couple of years one virtual BBQ meeting place in particular has been the most important and influential (and fun) to me.

          AmazingRibs.Com Meathead and all the team and all the fellow enthusiasts here have helped me sharpen my skills, my ideas and my desires. Special shout out to Mr. Bones as well, one of the good ol'e boys I admire on here along with Danjohnston949 who are basically examples of whats right in the world.

          I'm not going anywhere of course, just expect to be a tad busy, so might not get on here as much as I'd like, keep your fingers crossed for me folks, its a big gamble for me and my family.
