    Rancho Gordo Pinto's

    So we got our shipment from Rancho Gordo Tuesday, and like Mosca, we started out with the pinto's. My wife cooked them the same way she always cooks pinto's - she soaked them overnight, seasoned them with salt, black pepper and some garlic powder and cooked them in chicken broth with a ham bone and some chopped onion. Man, these are soooooo good. I am spoiled now; can't go back to grocery store dried beans. They were large and firm and as my wife said, they tasted "fresh". We got the deluxe gift box and added a bag of pinto's and yellow eye beans to the order. Can't wait to try another bag.

      At around $5.95 per pound, they are not cheap. But man, they are good. That pic is all I ate last night - pinto's and skillet corn bread. I will probably finish that pot of beans tonight.

      klflowers how long did you cook them for with the ham bone?

      A couple of hours after soaking them. Without the soak I think they take around 3 hours.

      I'm just glad they have beans back in stock! My RG Bean Club order came last week and 2 of the 6 selections are history already.

    Man, that looks fantastic. Could've been a pic from Sunday dinner at my grandma's as a kid... there was always a side of pintos with onions and cornbread.

      Wonderful! I've tried the pinquitos from them to go with a Santa Maria style tri tip meal and they are everything you say they are. What your wife mentioned about freshness was my first impression as well.

        Thanks @klflowers for stimulating a fond memory. 50 plus years ago during an excursion over the jungles of a certain (well, more than one actually) Southeast Asia country we would occasionally prepare a batch of pintos. Our recon plane was large enough to have a modest galley replete with stove. Our onboard Electronic Tech, Malcom Rice, was a good ol' southern boy who liked his beans. His wife would send over bags o' pintos in his "care" packages. I was in charge of getting our mission grub from the flight kitchen so would fenagle whatever pork product was available to add to the cook. A simple food like pintos was a welcome connection to home for us all.

        Those beans look so much more substantive than the typical store bought kind, you scored.

              Those look so good. I was raised on pintos and cornbread. This is the first I’m hearing of these beans. I’ll have to try them sometime.

              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.

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!
