    A Southern delicacy.

    Fresh from the garden and hot from the oven. The tomato needs to be at least twice as thick as the biscuit and salt and pepper are acceptable. The only allowable change is a slice or three of bacon, but this is the original.

    They put a bit of Dukes mayo on 'em down here. Not my thing, I love all the ingredients on their own but just can't get into it. Now fried green tomato and bacon on a hot homemade biscuit? I'm down.

      Whenever I hear “fried green tomato” I think of “real good ribs”.

    Favorite time of the year. All we have been eating lately are tomato sandwiches, even for breakfast. And we do use Dukes.😋

      I grew up on Kraft mayo and discovered Duke's in my 20's. After my Duke's discovery i felt my life before that was a lie.

        How long do you smoke that thing for? What internal temp do you take it to? What’s the recommended hold time? Dry or wet brine? Sliced, pulled or eat it off the bone to serve?

        Should I soak my wood chips when I cook it, or leave them dry? How do I get some nice cross-hatch grill marks on it? Do you can it after cooking? If I hit it with a Thermoprobe, will I let all the juice out? Do I even need to probe it, or should I just pull it off when it feels like the flesh between my thumb and pointer finger?

        Who the hell is Duke?!? GOD I’M SO CONFUSED!!! 😫

        (Never thought about trying to smoke a tomato 🤔... guess what IIIIIIIIIII’M gonna do this weekend! 😃🙌

        Fresh sliced tomato between two slices bread buttered on the outside and toasted over hot coals turning frequently till nicely browned. I like to add thinly sliced onion. The better halves of my family like grated white cheddar or gouda with theirs.
        PS. Must have grill marks.

            2 slices of ripe tomato or one really thick one
            2 slices of white sandwich bread
            Dukes mayo
            salt and pepper
            Lean over the kitchen sink to eat it because no napkin and few paper towels can stand up to a properly made mater sandwich

          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 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 $299 delivered to your door!

          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.

          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.
