    Thanks man. Life has been a very strange journey to sure. When folks asked what it was like, I tell 'em it was like these movies (something I thought could be easily grasped): Platoon (real war s**t there), Apocalypse Now (bizarre, deadly, surreal) and Catch 22 (from Milo Minderbinder to Yosarian - the deadly absurdity of it all).

    On big ops like Dewey Canyon, when whole brigades were deployed, we combat engineers would cut an LZ, they chopper in the infantry and air bourne. Hours later, Chesty WestyMoreland would have mess units come into the LZ with big containers of stuff: scrambled eggs, beef stew, s**t on shingle, chicken etc. was very, very weird. Made for TV combat. What can I say?

    Hah! Got the kit, but unfortunately no P38s. Sorry, not getting the Ham reference. Maybe not a thing back in ‘66? I do remember ham and Lima beans from a bunch of C-rats we “liberated” - ugh. Those C-rats were from the Korean War we think as MREs were just coming into play. At the time, the brass was making a big deal about troops getting hot rations, so even in the Bush, hot food was choppered in, at least in Army units.

    Dang, this gives me flashbacks! I still have an Army web belt with canteen cup holder and canteen in my garage (along with my Army-issued helmet for god sakes).

    1. The BEST cup of Joe I ever had was at the end of a 72 hour training exercise at Fort Dicks (aptly named) just before going to Nam. The exercise was for us to stay awake in our fox holes (hah!) and protect our line against the aggressors. I think we died . April in new Jersey, it was cold, not hot food or drink for 72 hours. At the end, the mess guys setup an outdoor kitchen with 55 gallon drums with immersion heaters, filled with water and then bags of coffee dumped into it and boiled. We got to dip our canteen cups in there - I'm tell you, the greatest cup of Joe ever was!!
    2. Then, in Nam, some decide to teach how to love scotch. Every night for 2 weeks, we'd fill our canteen cups with crushed ice (I know, where'd we get that in 100+ weather - dunno). Filled that with Cutty Sark, and after 2 weeks, LOVED scotch!
    3. Well, kind of not for everyone, but canteen cups made for great roach holders. That's for what's left after "one toke over the line..."

    And now I have a new way to use the one in the garage - for hot dogs! Joy! Thanks Mr. Bones!

    Mr. Bones I generally use whatever I have on hand. Lately I have been working through a box of maple and a box of hickory. I will need to re-order soon so let me know what is the best for hot dags after your research... ; - )

    Couldn't rightly say, since taste is so highly subjective...

    Widely known fact: even though I have like 14-16 typesa smoker woods to hand...I use Hickory bout 90+% th time...

    Now ya got me wonderin if'n my Bourbon Barrel chunks from Fruita Wood might not be even better...

    Gonna havedta take yet another hit, in th name of Science, I'd havedta reckon..."p

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


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.

Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

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


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’.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

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.
