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.

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.

        As I mentioned on another thread I'm rocking my Weber 26-18 conversation tonight cooking some pork chops and sweet potatoes. The fire was contained in the Jumbo Joe but the vents and the lid were in the purview of the 26. Everything went well. The food was was tasty. I'm going to continue to dial this in. I'm on to something here.

          Sous Vide Tri Tip. Seven hours @ 133 degrees; lightly salted before bagging. After removal from bag sprinkled with Gibson's Steak seasoning and then seared on pellet grill with Grill Grates at 450. Measured grill Grates with infrared thermometer and it was about 500 degrees.
          My son gave me an A+. My son in law said best Tri Tip he ever had. They might be a little biased, but I thoroughly enjoyed ti - just melt in the mouth good. My wife gave it thumbs up too. Unfortunalely, my daughter is vegetarian, so boy did she miss out.
          And, my crocuses think it is time for "Show Us What You're Cooking - Spring"; beautiful spring like sunshine here in Southern Oregon today - finally!

              I thought I would honor Dan Johnston with a back yard cremation of two pork butts using Meathead's Memphis Dust recipe. Eleven hours, outside air temp right at 32 degrees and a slight breeze, low and slow anyway, no wrap, and the results... My favorite critic couldn't wait... or stop! YUM!

                I designed the pit based on a 1000 gallon propane tank with half of a 250 gallon propane tank for the firebox. My brother-in-law welded it and we mounted it on a 24 foot trailer. The large size was due to research that indicated most new businesses needed more volume to stay open longer. I did really good on getting even cooking throughout the cooker with thermometers between doors 1 and 2 as well as between doors 3 and 4 at grate level; the temps stay within 5 degrees.

                My intention was to open a barbecue trailer, but I ran into a snag with the city regulations. I just want to feed my family, not the bureaucracy! So I am exploring ways to get started on a small budget and grow as the proceeds allow. I have smoked brisket for about 300 people at one time and I have people asking when I am going to open. Not easy with a one man operation, but I am determined to make Anchorage, Alaska a barbecue destination!

              My old Dad just loved T-bone and Porterhouse steaks, that's about all I remember him grilling actually. I dug these two whoppers out of the bottom of the freezer, actually forgot they were there. Grilled them over the weekend, reverse sear on the Weber kettle with an SNS. Do I have to even mention they were totally awesome !! ???

              I'm a huge fan of sous vide, but I found Choice fillet mignon this weekend and didn't have time for SV. Cooked this by searing it in an iron skillet in tallow and finishing it to 133 F in the oven. Out of this world good.

              We celebrated our children's 40th Birthday today (twins), Sarah & Jacob. This is a (not so good) picture of their home made cake - with some candle holes punched in.
              Chicken was terrific... 1/2 with Kosmos Q Honey Killer Bee BBQ Rub, 2/2 with Asian dry rub https://thewoksoflife.com/2016/03/ea...y-rub-chicken/ and 1/2 very lightly sprinkled with salt and poultry seasoning (for the Grandchildren). All of the chicken rubbed and with some olive oil in fridge overnight.
              My son gave me another A+ for the chicken. Moist and delicious.
