    • Tryin' not to light my beard on fire east of KC MO. Pit Barrel Cooker for smokin', Char-Griller for grillin' and the cutest little no-name instant read thermometer you've ever seen to keep me from screwin' up!

    #17
    Being a KC guy, you KNOW I’ve gotta advocate for burnt ends! 👍 Especially if you go the “fake” or “poor man’s” versions, beef (chuck roast) and / or pork (country style ribs) are fairly easy.

    If you’re lucky enough to have a Pit Barrel, the cook times in the recipes are greatly reduced as well... but your guests don’t need to know any of that! 😈 You SLAVED over the grill for HOURS, right? 😂😂😂

    Here’s a couple links to show you why I laugh when I say that 😇:

      My absolute favorites are either porkbelly, which can be done a couple different ways or do a variety of smoked sausage with two or three different cheeses. Spread those out on a board with some different mustard dipping sauces and you have some tasty pre meal treats. If you want something lighter make some caprese salad skewers...long toothpicks with a mini tomato, mozzarella cube and basil leaf on it and drizzle some balsamic reduction over it. Very easy because everything can be bought at the store and made ahead of time...

        HOT PEPPER JELLY

        1 1/2 cups hot peppers (including seeds), chopped
        1/4 cup seeded sweet peppers, chopped
        1 1/4 cups vinegar, divided
        6 cups sugar
        8 oz. liquid pectin (Certo)
        Few drops green or red food coloring, as appropriate

        Prepare 6 8-oz. canning jars.

        Puree hot and sweet peppers in food processor or blender along with 1/4 cup vinegar until “liquefied.” Pour into heavy saucepan and add remaining 1 cup of vinegar. Bring to a boil.

        Add sugar and stir until completely dissolved. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes.

        Stir and add pectin and food coloring. Return to boil, stirring constantly.

        Pour into jars to within 1/4 inch of top. Seal and invert jars for a few minutes. Then, set upright to cool.

              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

              Placeholder

              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

              Placeholder

              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

              Placeholder

              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.

              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.

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              Placeholder

              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

              Placeholder

              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.

              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'.

              Placeholder

              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.
