    Memorial Day Weekend Menu: enter yours here

    Having just done a brisket/brats/ribs (and today we are finishing off the brisket with brisket tacos...almost hate to chop a brisket that turned out such great slices!) we have one day of just burgers and hot dogs by the pool and one day of steaks + trimmings...I imagine some of you have something awesome planned.

    Baltimore Pit Beef. Something quick and easy so we can hopefully enjoy the pool for the first time this year.

    After seeing some deviled eggs in the Show Us thread, definitely adding them to the list.

      I use whatever looks good in the store. I usually look for, in order, Top Round, Top Sirlion, Bottom Round, and then Rump. Never know what Food Lion is going to have in stock when I visit. Just checked the freezer so it is going to be a Top Round and a Top Sirlion.

        It's a good career move for me. I'me one of those weird specialist engineers that has to go where the work is. Fortunately my wife is a teacher and can get work anywhere.

        The relocation package gave us the option of driving or flying, and we chose to fly and have our vehicles shipped. So no trip through Kansas this time. My dad is a native Kansan, if that makes a difference!

      I’ve got a brisket that’s been wet aging about 40 days, so I’m gonna cook that. Maybe do some burgers and dogs one day too.

            Red Snapper is a fine fish but I never knew you could make hot dogs out of them. Seems like a waste of fish to me but I will let you "Yankees" do what you want since you also have my second favorite crustacean on the menu...

            No idea yet. Probably just burgers and dogs - since I have been on this site, I haven't done not one Ball Park or Nathan's. Maybe some brats. Something like some ABTs to munch on. I made some Giardiniera today; it will be just about better by next week...

              The long over due leftovers buffet. Anything left from that will be sent home with the kids or chopped up and frozen for the soup pot this winter.

                Having just eaten two meals of pulled pork today, from a butt that smoked overnight, i’m thinking beef or chicken are in order. That’s being full talking though... ribs and butts are paid for and in the deep freeze!

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                Placeholder

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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 In One

                Placeholder

                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!

                Placeholder

                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 because temperature control is so much easier.

                Placeholder

                The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

                Placeholder

                The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                Placeholder

                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.

                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                Placeholder

                Napoleon's 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.
