    • NC, The Triad
    • WSM 22.5", Pitmaster IQ110, Weber 22.5" Kettle with SNS, Weber 14" Smokey Joe.

    Cooked a pork butt yesterday for dinner. Used MMD and took it to 203 before throwing in the cambro for a few hours. Packed leftovers in 6 ounce servings for all of my employees, bought some buns, George's sauce, Mac's Speed Shop Eastern NC sauce, Tapatio and Claussen pickle slices. The entire office smelled like a bbq joint today! Cooker was a WSM 22 and used cherry and hickory for smoke. Smeared some bbq grease on my camera lens as seen in the packaging shot.
    Side Note: You can tell I was pretty lit when I put the smoker together at 3am Sunday. Check out the grate. It's not actually on one of the tabs. Could have dumped the whole thing in the empty water pan below lol.

      I posted about it recently. I have not done one yet. Hope to do one in the near future. Good to see it worked out well on the gasser.

    I smoked some salmon on parchment paper, while cooking the corn in foil with butter, and the brussel sprouts were cooked in a perforated square "wok" on the hot side of the grill. All was done at the same time on my YS-640. The wife put the sweet tater in the oven while I was cooking the rest. The salmon was seasoned with S&G and kosher salt. The brussel sprouts were seasoned with only salt and black pepper, and a little Texas grown virgin olive oil.

    Turned out great

        Basically InstantPot -> ice bath -> smoker -> meatgasm. Better write up when it's not 2 AM, because this is money.

        So good...

          45 degrees, no snow and Daylight Savings Time....time to uncover the Performer. This is a pretty simple weeknight dinner. For the burgers I ground the chuck, got it really cold and formed the patties as loose as I could. Texturally, it was excellent. The pictures tell the rest of the story...

            Monday was my day off, so I fired up the smoker and in went a pork shoulder and a full packer brisket. Locally sourced oak fueled the fire and kept my pit at ~250°F. Eight hours in everything was about 180°F internal and the bark was beautiful. So I pulled, wrapped, and stuck’em in the oven at 250, since I had to get my son to baseball practice.

            They went at 250 until probe tender - ~200° internal. Thats when I tried something new. A long hold (12+ hours) at 170°F (the lowest my oven will go). Tuesday morning everything came out beautiful, moist, and delicious. The bark wasn’t quite as firm as I’m used too, but it was a great way to have delicious food for lunch without staying up all night to cook!!!

            These pics show before cooking and when I wrapped. Yes, I cut my brisket in half because it won’t fit in my vertical smoker.
            Last pic is pulled pork. Didn’t get a brisket pic.

            Also, I finally got a chance to try out the MEATER BLOCK that arrived a few weeks ago. Hoping to post a separate review, but I’ll say now it was worth the wait!

                Surely you know somebody who loves outdoor cooking who deserves a gift for the holidays, birthday, anniversary, or just for being wonderful. There he is, right in the mirror! Here are our selections of best ideas, all Platinum or Gold Medalists, listed by price.

                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 $299 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

                Placeholder

                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

                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.
