    Interesting how we blend new technology with the old. Glad to see I'm not the only one! I keep handwritten notebooks for my grilling and smoking adventures and my other crafts. Typing on the 'puter just isn't the same. GPS and maps are another example. There's no doubt GPS is handy, but blindly following the "GPS Lady" is no substitute for studying a map and building a mental picture of the route too.

    Add me to the three-ring binder team. You sure can't do this with a laptop, or even a tablet:

    Actually, I often put my laptop on the kitchen counter, especially when I'm trying a recipe out for the first time or three. Once I've decided that it's a keeper it gets printed and into the binder. Then I can just pull it out and hang it over the counter, as in the picture.

    BTW, I print on both sides of the paper and punch three holes in both long edges of the paper. That way, I have the option of which sides of two pages face each other.

    That print button is AWESOME!!! Thanks for the upgrade AmazibgRibs!

    Going to combine this with the old school tip of tossing them in a three ring binder. So many recipes in my family have gotten lost over the years and through the generations due to “Hey, do you have Mom’s recipe for X?” “No, I thought YOU had it!”-type stuff it’s a crying shame.

    Apps and computer programs are great, but who knows where technology will be when I kick the bucket? And all it would take would be one lost password or one expired subscription for everything to be gone forever.

    Everybody who is important to me, however, will know where my cookbook of collected recipes is.

    OR, who gives a rip about nutrition.
    It’s food, BBQ or in the neighborhood, let’s eat.

    "Nutrition-schmutrition"

    Yep, sometimes I'd rather not know.

    I just tried it. Worked great, but Nutrition Info still in the printout. Nutrition-schmutrition. I love that pastrami no matter what.

    Can we have a list of just the “funny quotes”? 😎

    I’ll echo the endorsement for the Paprika app. Importing recipes is a snap, and it seems to zero in on the essentials

    Very easy to organize in Microsoft OneNote. You can select a recipe, find that "print friendly" button, and then "Print to OneNote"... it goes directly there and then just name it and drag it to the appropriate tab. Also, copy pictures, text, URL links. Make notes directly on the recipe page with your results and comments; success, changes, what smoke was used, etc... OneNote doesn't have a "save" button - it is all saved automatically (took me awhile to get used to that). Click image for larger version

    That's cool! I had printed everything brisket, rubs, mop sauce, etc and had about fifteen pages (maybe more) stapled at a corner. It ended up getting a bit messy with spices and mop, but it sure does smell good!

    I know and totally appreciate that, and all of what you guys do Meathead. Sometimes I just have to chuckle, and crack a little wise, at our First World "issues". I do, like many I suppose, have a book of family recipes my Mom complied over 40 years ago to which I add some of my favorite AR recipes. Most of my family is gone now and it's fun to visit with them through their recipes. I guess you all are a part of that now, even Clint!

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

slow n sear
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

the good one grill
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

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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 Undisputed Champion!

thermapen
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

GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily rmoved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
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.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

kareubequ bbq 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

masterbuilt gas 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'.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill
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.

Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

Green Mountain Davey Crockett Grill
Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
