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

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).

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.

        brat burgers sound amazing. I mentioned it to the wife and she told me I’m going on a diet after this weekend! I guess I can grill chicken, fish and veggies...

        Thanks fer all yalls patience..much appreciated.

        Th entire reason fer this cook, an th country style ribs cook previous was, chiefly, to test th viability, an reproducibility of buildin my fire a lil different than previous, to achieve/maintain a desired median avg temp., so th csprs, an jcbbs were merely (admittedly delicious) byproducts of that experimentation...

        I'll most likely do several more, to prove repeatability, with other proteins.

        Left off at Beddy-Bye Time last night, with an SnS slightly less than half full of used coals, an some partially consumed Fruita bourbon barrel chunks, a few new chunks added, an 21 unlit kbb lit off in th Weber 7447 compact chimley...

        I added a few more split down bb chunks, while my compact chimley of 21~ coals was achievin a state of readiness. Bottom vent 1/4, top vent 1/3.

        Now ABC's great SnS tutorial instructs to usin~ 12 lit coals, an some chunks to git a ~ 225°, ~8-hour, low an slow fire, fer butts, brisky, etc.

        To achieve a bakin / roastin fire, ~325° they recommend 1/2 Weber chimley lit, then fill with kbb, same vent settins.

        Fair enough.

        I'm recently strivin to reproduce on th 22.5" kettles, with SnS, what I do on my bigger cookers, which is ~275°, avg.

        Fer them country styles, it woulda taken much longer to git em done, @ 225; it was roughly 95° , feels like 105°, I was Hongry, an wanted to hurry em along, some...

        Fer that cook, I added 21 unlit KBB to ~1/2 SnS fulla kbb dregs from Dee Dee's belly, from some previous cooks, barrel chunks, then added 21 lit briqs... well, yall done seen th results...

        Fer this cook, since th protein was way thinner, I didn't add any unlit to th dregs, jus chunked it up with some barrel splits, some, an dumped my 21 briqs in, fer less overall cook time, at this temp...

        Once we got to thin blue, on went my burgers...

            Thanks guys and gals. fzxdoc and Meathead. They’ve been split up until this week, with the Performer and Genesis 4 burner by the pool. In interests of opening up space by the pool for more seating for a party for 6o tomorrow, the cookers all got kicked to the end of the house for a while. I may keep it this way for a while, as I may give the other grills and offset more love....
