Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

maverick PT55 thermometer

A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

Click here for more info on the Maverick PT-55 Waterproof Instant-Read Thermometer Review shown above. It may be the best value in a thermometer out there


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.

Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

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 9 delivered to your door!

The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers

Placeholder

The smart folks at ThermoWorks have finally done it: The Swiss Army Knife of thermometers, two in one. Start with the industry standard food thermometer, the Thermapen MK4, (Platinum Medal winner) truly instant (2 to 3 seconds) precise (+ or – 0.7°F). Then they built in an infrared thermometer ideal for measuring the temps of pizza stones, griddles, and frying pans (also great for finding leaks around doors and windows in your house).

Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater

Char-Broil's Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you're off to the party! Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

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.

G&F Suede Welder's Gloves

Heat Resistant Gloves With Extra Long Sleeves Hold The Hot Stuff

If you're using oven mitts at the grill, it's time to trade up. Say hello to these suede welder's gloves. They're heat resistant enough to handle hot grill grates, and flexible enough to handle tongs. The extra long sleeves even let you reach deep into the firebox to move hot logs without getting burned.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

grill grates

GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

kareubequ bbq smoker

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.

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.

PK 360 grill

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

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 much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

    What's ur fav leftover mashed potatoes dish

    I seemed to have way over done the mashed potatoes this year. I've got pounds and pounds of it. What are some of your favorite ways to reuse mashed potatoes as a different dish. I'll definitely make some shepards pie. What are your go to recipes?

          Trash! I hate leftover potatoes, to me they never reheat well. My wife will fry little patties of them, and they're ok to me that way I guess, kinda like little hashbrowns.

            Huskee - ask your wife to mix in some shredded Cheddar cheese and some chopped crisp bacon when she makes the little patties - you will become a believer.

          Wow, so many options. Mashed taters go with anything, almost as much as bacon. Pancakes, soup, casserole, quesadillas. I bet the interwebs have thousands of ideas out there. Whatever you do with them, as with everything else, I recommend you add bacon.

            I always enjoy making potato cakes out of leftover mashed taters. I add some stuff, sometimes... diced onions, green onions, crumbled bacon, diced ham, etc. Depends on what's on hand. Make 'em plain, or make 'em 'Loaded'! Have fun!

              There is a local restaurant that shapes mashed potatoes into smallish sized balls and deep fries them. Awesome.

              I don't think adding crisp bacon and cheddar cheese would hurt either.

                  This year our after-thanksgiving breakfast feast included a 50/50 mix of potatoes and dressing fried up a la potato pancakes (think latkes). Topped with a couple of over easy eggs and I can't imagine why I haven't had my 2nd heart attack !

                    Huskee, my friend did the mashed potatoes and he folded in some chopped kale. Hmmmm, I thought, until we tasted them. They were delicious, and I can only think of one other place I would toss kale....

                  Soup. Sautee some onions, toss in the celery heart diced up fine along with the leaves, some chicken stock, your left over smashed taters and voila! Easy tasty tater soup.

                    I didnt know it had a name! I fry some onions in a non stick pan, then mix in the potatoes and some cheese and fry 'em all up until crispy brown.

                    Besides tater patties, I really enjoy a Greek dip called, Skordalia. Extremely simple to make. 1 cup leftover mashed potatoes, 4 garlic cloves, minced, 1/4 cup quality olive oil, (add more or less to preference), 2-3 Tbsps of white wine vinegar. Blend until smooth. Folks, you have to love garlic and olive oil for this one. Chill the dip. Serve cold and smear on fresh pita bread triangles. Adjust garlic, olive oil,and vinegar to taste. I don't have a recipe as this is just in my odd, and confused head.

                      Whoa! I might have to run this one by wifey as I just might have found another use for her leftover taters. Thanks for sharing!

                    This sounds weird, I know. But one of my favorites as a kind was to take a hotdog in a bun and add a scoop of mashed taters with some cheese on top and bake in the toaster oven until the cheese gets nice and melty and the bun is toasted. It was inspired by something we had for school lunch in elementary school where they fried up a slice of baloney with mashed potatoes and cheese on top. Pretty darn good, I must say, and I was a really picky eater.
