    10th Birthday Vortex Wings

    My baby girl turned 10 today and I cannot believe it! At her request, I grilled up some buffalo wings. Did 4 dozen of the Smart Chicken organic wings (yes, we think it makes a significant difference) on the 22” with the vortex and a chimney full of Weber briquettes. Thanks to Troutman for the assist. They turned out awesome! All the grandparents ate more than we’ve seen them eat in a while. Oh yes... there’s an emoji party with her friends this weekend too, SWMBO did the cake - devils food with homemade buttercream frosting. 👍🏻🎉🎈🎊🎂

                      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                      Placeholder

                      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.

                      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!

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      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.

                      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.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      Placeholder

                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      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.

                      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                      Placeholder

                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175 to 350F 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'.

                      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!

                      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                      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.
