    Thank you Meathead!! (or: Makin' Bacon - The Results Show)

    I just want to thank Meathead for his INCREDIBLE bacon recipe. I have made bacon a few times, but this is the first time using this recipe / method.

    This is BY FAR the best bacon I have ever tasted - bar none. I used Apple wood for the smoke. Here's the picture for you food porn addicts out there.

              Went exactly as the recipe states. Morton's kosher for the salt. The main thing is patience and flipping them over in the fridge every day. Pretty simple as far as I'm concerned.

              Just fried some up for breakfast - AWESOME!

                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.

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.

                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.

                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.
