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.

    Not the prettiest bird but incredible tasting. I used a buttermilk marinade for 24 hours(vac sealed) with garlic, pepper, salt, honey, and sage.
    Roasted at 400 and then brought down to 325 to cook through.
    Skin was crispy and carmelized not burnt. The meat had hints of the marinade flowing through it. Not a dry bit of bird.


    Its become a weekly go to in my house. I was inspired by Nigella Lawson’s recipe.

    It's a cold 41 deg here on the Texas Gulf Coast this morning, but the sun is finally trying to break through. The Lyfetyme pit is warming up its engine and this nice little shoulder roast will be getting smoky on it soon.

    PS - Finished product was awesome. Crutched it at 155 or so, sliced it at 203. Incredible flavor and very tender, by shoulder roast standards.

      Thanks. I found it at HEB the other day. Unusual in that it is about 3" thick. I'm riding the stall as we speak and really having to work to keep the temp up. North wind is not kind to my smoker as it does not draft well in that condition.

    Today's project: 4 pastrami's. Temp is in the low 40s here in SE Texas but the big stick burner is keeping a steady temp. I'm drinking a beer that local brewery made, a really good beer that is actually a mistake - it is supposed to be a New England IPA but you can't taste the hops, it is a smooth easy drinking light beer and it turned into their best seller. Got a 1/2 gallon growler to kill while smoking the pastrami's today.

    Bought 4kg of flank steak last week. Why I don't know but cooked half of it tonight. Home made rub, slow cooked for best part of 30 mins then reverese seared using the new SnS and served up with a nasal clearing mustard & vinegar slaw & some chimichuri on top. Lovely evening for cooking in the garden at 4 deg Celsius here.

    Three chickens on the PBC today. One got a Weber Sweet & Smokey rub I wanted to use up. We ate it tonight with an Alabama white sauce. Another got a garlic-sriracha rub. I’m chopping it up tomorrow for lettuce wraps. The last one got Heath Riles Everday Rub and is going to the in-laws.

    Today I smoked some bacon ends and pieces, and used this East Carolina BBQ seasoning on a pork shoulder, to be accompanied by these baked beans...dropping off tomorrow for a colleague who has spent most of the last week in the hospital with a sick family member.

      Here's what I did for the Beans:
      1 lb dried great northerns, soaked for a few hours.
      Then saute celery, onion, carrots, and a couple garlic cloves
      Then add: 3 slices of the smoked bacon, 1 can rotel tomatoes, 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1 bay leaf, 3 sprigs of thyme

      Add 1 tsp salt after they've simmered for 30 minutes. I cooked with some chicken stock and some water and simmered for 30-45 minutes more.
