    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.

      For smoking, I am a committed stick burner.
      For grilling, it's all about charcoal. Almost always HEB brand mesquite charcoal. If not that, then Kingsford mesquite charcoal.

    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.

    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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
