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.

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

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).

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.

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.

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.

    What's your favorite pie...or dessert?

    Mrs JCBBQ just asked me what dessert I want her to make. Well, she just made over Thanksgiving one of my favorites - a banana cream pie w a salted bourbon caramel drizzle on a peanut butter cookie crust. Yeah, it's as good as it sounds. But that itch has been scratched so I'm looking for ideas.

    Tell me what your fav is and maybe it'll inspire her.

      I’m going with cheesecake.
      Haven’t made it in a couple of years. But if the recipe is right. It’s the bomb.
      BTW I am planning on doing this again this year.
      If I can find the recipe that I used in the past I will post it here.

    the 2 i have memories of are;

    my brothers mother in law - old world italian, made a pound cake to die for. she would always make it when she would visit. daughter has the recipe and it's good but not Mrs. Padavano.
    my aunt rose, (fathers sister) made a chocolate layer cake. I think it was 7 layer. she would always bring one to holidays ect.. i literally dream of this cake.

    I'll stop there.

      Strawberry shortcake! If you've seen the tv show Cake Boss, it's filmed in the next town over - Hoboken, NJ. I can't really stand the stuff they make but he does make an AMAZING strawberry shortcake. It's the only thing i'll buy there. Mmmmm

      Ice cream is my favorite.

      But crumb top apple pie is my regular favorite and the Martha Stewart Slab Apple Pie that my wife made one thanksgiving was maybe the greatest pie ever.

      Well Doc, ya see - I have this problem. I love deserts. Too many to count, and I'm not too picky.... BUT I do love blueberries most any way you can eat em - from fresh to baked in somethin' to cooked down ans poured over somethin'.

      Blueberry pie! Blueberry compote poured over ice cream or cheesecake.
      Cheesecake. I'm told I make the best cheesecake, and it's one of the easiest recipes, (google Three Cities of Spain Cheesecake)
      Cherry pie.
      Chocolate pie.
      Apple pie.
      Coconut Cream pie.
      Coconut cake.
      And...

      I couldn't find a photo of the Three Cities Cheesecake, so here is a shot of another cheesecake.
