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.

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.

      Haven’t posted in a long time and this is only tangentially related because it utilized some frozen leftover “better than katz’s“ pastrami. But I’m reaponse to a bit of a challenge, I give you pastrami Reuben egg rolls (with handcut yam fries)

      The annual Prime Rib went through the traditional oven treatment this year...... I did however break from tradition and finish it over indirect heat in on the kettle with some cherry and oak smoke to kiss it up a notch. Final product was amazing! Made an oven roasted Pheasant for my beautiful wife since she doesn’t eat Prime Rib. She said it was good too, although, the piece I had was a touch dry. Probably about 5 minutes took long in the oven is all. Twice baked potatoes to round everything out. Merry Christmas Everybody!!!!!! Click image for larger version

      And here are some rouladens, Bavarian style. Troutman since I mentioned these so many times to you, thought I’d share how my family makes rouladens.

      Sliced top round, smeared brown mustard, onion, S/P, bacon and a kosher spear. Browned and braised for 4 hours to make gravy. Served with spatzen, or spatzle as some call them, and Blau kraut. This is what I remember growing up eating on Christmas Day. It’s been quite some time since we did this for Christmas dinner, but oh how I missed these!

      Best part, kids helped make these and the spatzen, which they have never done since it has been so long. I think my son may have found one of his favorite dishes.

      And then for dessert, my first attempt at pavlova. This was outstanding. So simple, so light, and so refreshing with the mango, kiwi and blueberry topping with whip cream.

      I hope everyone enjoyed the day! Merry Christmas!

        Gammon (boneless uncooked) no rub used with Chris Lilly's Spicy Apricot Glaze.
        Smoked naked at 250F for 2 hours then glazed and wrapped to 130 IT.
        Removed foil saving the juices, glazed and cooked to 140 bit longer than planned.
        Glazed again and a quick roll on grid over the hot coals.
        Was dryer than expecting (OK) but the juices from the foil was unbelievable (sweetish) and went so well with Gammon slices.
        Chicken Sosatie's, Couscous butternut salad, curry noodle salad, Greek salad and sweetcorn.
        Traditional trifle for pudding.

        Wrapped with Sosaties (snack'ers) over coals

        Christmas eve cook: I dry brined the birds for 24 hours (gosh nice having a 2nd fridge), and did a butter injection. I put together a Simon and Garfunkel rub (I used Mexican Oregano - but I'm guessing one can't tell the difference) . For the most part I followed the Ultimate Turkey recipe verbatim. The turkey was on the 22" with a SnS, it ran at 400 for 1.5 hours. The chickens were on the WSM - 18 top rack with and empty water pan. I had the WSM lid slightly cocked and it ran at 350. I must say the gravy turned out awesome.

        Funny Story:
        So my wife's family, all from Mexico, never have had gravy for the most part. They typically have mole with turkey. So I bust out my Ultimate Turkey gravy and talk them into trying (Side note my wife asked me not even to make the gravy). They were like OMG, we have never tasted anything like this before. I look over and my wife's mother, who doesn't speak any English, is eating a chicken taco with gravy on it. Later into dinner I commented, why are all the Mexicans eating turkey and the American eating tacos?
