      * - Favorite Beer - the cold one in my hand (craft beers of all flavors; haven't had a blue yummy in over 6 years) my tastes change with the season so it is difficult to name just a couple. However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.
      * - Booze - I don't really have a favorite, but lean towards single malt Scotch & Irish whiskey
      * - Wines - Reds: mainly the heavy stuff mixed in with the occasional pinot noir ( I have yet to meet a malbec I didn't like); Whites: German & Nebraska (hey, I have to support the home team)
      * - Favorite Spice outlets - Frisco Spices in LaVista, NE (the local butcher supply shop); Volcanic Peppers in Bellevue, NE
      * - Current butchers: Just Good Meats & Fareway Foods

      Hahahaha, Hollywood got a bit carried away with that one. Although I do catch myself saying, eh, from time to time. I even type it out sometimes, then have to correct myself. It's funny, I don't even realize that I have an accent. Hahaha, I am curious to hear what the folks from down south think.........

    Spinaker - I want to know why they treated you with kid gloves. I wanted tough political questions: What is your stance on reverse searing? If you front sear, how do you intent to provide for the middle sear folks? Do you wrap to avoid the stall? If so, how do you tell the non-wrappers that you represented them? You are in a State near Wisconsin. Those folks look up to you for cooking in the cold. They expected you to run on a "cheddar cheese burger first" campaign. You didn't even talk about cheese burgers. What is your stance on cheddar cheese? A lot of people say Kamado and others say Komodo. Can you tell us your stance on the Kamado/Komodo debate? Finally, and I know this is a tough question so take your time. Pacific or Atlantic salmon.

      Pacific. All Day! It just tastes better! I actually get an acute allergic reaction to Atlantic Salmon. It's really weird. But I do still eat it!!

      Spinaker - that is weird. Do you think it is mercury? I live up the river from Pacific Salmon. I have caught a few huge (and i mean huge) ones. By the time they get to me they are muddy tasting, though. The photos you and Breadhead have posted - those are real salmon. No mud in those.

      No sir......those babies are clean as can be. There is nothing like the taste of Fresh salmon, right out of those cold, clean waters. I was amazed. Plus, everything tastes better when your in the Alaskan Bush!

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

        Placeholder

        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.

        The Undisputed Champion!

        Placeholder

        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

        Placeholder

        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.

        Gaucho Grill

        Delta by Nuke burns wood or charcoal and comes with an adjustable height grill grate. This Argentinian grill will get your flame on!

        A Versatile Gasser That Does It All!

        Placeholder

        Weber’s Genesis line has long been one of the most popular choices for gas grillers. The new Genesis II E-335 offers solid performance, a sear burner for sizzling heat and an excellent warranty.

        GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

        Placeholder

        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?

        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.

        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

        Placeholder

        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'.

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

        Placeholder

        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!

        Track Up To Six Temperatures At Once

        FireBoard Drive 2 is an updated version of a well-received product that sets the standard for performance and functionality in the wireless food thermometer/thermostatic controller class.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        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.

        Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

        Placeholder

        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.
