Engelbrecht Grills and Cookers 2000 Series Stahlkammer Grill

Price: 

$4,702

The Stahlkammer 2000 is as solid and beautiful as the smaller Braten 1000. It has almost 8 square feet of cooking space, but it lacks the offset firebox of the Braten. To cook indirect you can build a fire and push it all against one side and get a similar effect. These are not kept in stock and are built to order... Read More

Horizon 30" Double Door Smoker Trailer

Price: 

$7,200

Horizon's 30" Double Door Smoker Trailer has to be good because owner, Roger Davison (below), has one in his backyard. Davison has made high quality 1/4" pits for decades since he started Oklahoma Joe Smokers. Bigger is better according to Davison. He feels large Horizon offsets distribute and hold heat more evenly than the junior models... Read More

Myron Mixon 36" Standard Smoker

Price: 

$3,595

Renowned Pitmaster Myron Mixon's smallest smoker fits 16 slabs of baby back ribs on two shelves and is big enough to roast a small pig. An Automatic Water System ensures the large built-in water pan never goes dry. Hook it up to a regular garden hose and a valve replenishes the water pan whenever levels drop below three inches. A large drain valve comes in handy when it's time to shut down... Read More

Digital Thermometers Are
Your Most Valuable Tool!

thermopop bbq thermometer

Gold BBQ AwardA good digital thermometer keeps me from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and more accurate than dial thermometers. The Thermopop (above) is about $29. The Thermapen (below), the Ferrari of instant reads, is about $96.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

BBQ_grill_grates

Gold BBQ AwardGrillGrates(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.

The Pit Barrel Cooker

pit barrel cooker bbq

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.

Gold BBQ Award

Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

Is This The Kettle Killer?

PK Grill

The PK Grill has become our favorite charcoal grill. It proves some ideas never die.

Designed in 1952, the rectangular shape is easy to set up in 2 or 3 heat zones, it can easily be used as a smoker, the cast aluminum body is indestructible, airflow is easy to manage, and there is plenty of room under the hood.

Best. Tongs. Ever.

Gold BBQ Award

Made of rugged 1/8" thick aluminum, 20" long, with four serious rivets, mine show zero signs of weakness after years of abuse. I use it on meats, hot charcoal, burning logs, and with the mechanical advantage that the scissor design creates, I can easily pick up a whole packer brisket. Click here to read more. - Meathead

Amp Up The Smoke With
Mo's Smoking Pouch

mo's bbq smoking pouch

Gold BBQ Award

Mo's Smoking Pouch is essential for gas grills. It is an envelope of mesh 304 stainless steel that holds wood chips or pellets. The airspaces in the mesh are small enough that they limit the amount of oxygen that gets in so the wood smolders. Put it on top of the cooking grate, on the burners, on the coals. It holds enough wood for about 15 minutes for short cooks, so you need to refill it or buy a second pouch for long cooks like pork shoulder and brisket. Mine has survived more than 50 cooks. I like it better than the smoker tubes. Click for more info. - Meathead
