Digital Thermometers:
Stop Guessing!

thermopop bbq thermometer

Gold BBQ AwardA good digital thermometer is why I never serve dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. You can get a professional grade fast and precise splashproof thermometer like the Thermopop (above) for about $24. The Thermapen (below), the Ferrari of instant reads, is about $96. Thermapen is the one you see all the TV chefs and all the top competition pitmasters using.

GrillGrates Take You To
The Infrared Zone

BBQ_grill_grates

Gold BBQ AwardGrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, produce great grill marks, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, smolder wood right below the meat, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. Every gas grill and pellet smoker needs them.

The Smokenator:
A Necessity For All Weber Kettles

smokenator bbq system

Gold BBQ Award If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the amazing Smokenator and Hovergrill. The Smokenator turns your grill into a first class smoker, and the Hovergrill can add capacity or be used to create steakhouse steaks.

The Pit Barrel Cooker

pit barrel c ooker bbqAbsolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world.

This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier (and that's because smoke and heat go up, not sideways).

Gold BBQ AwardBest of all, it is only $269 delivered to your door!

scissor tongs

Best. Tongs. Ever.

Gold BBQ AwardMade of rugged 1/8" thick aluminum, 20" long, with four serious rivets, mine show zero signs of weakness after years of abuse. I use them 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.

$269

Like all Holland cookers their Companion Portable Gas Grill has no open flame.

The colorful clam shell design with retractable legs is stylish and appealing... Read More

Orion Cooker

Price: 

$169

A very clever and unusual design, the Orion excels at keeping meat moist and cooking fast. Well, maybe it isn't that unusual. It is really a hi-tech variation on the cowboy method of cooking in a Dutch oven where the pot sits on coals and coals sit on top of the pot. It is especially good for chicken, turkey, fish, and beef brisket... Read More

Volcano 3 Collapsible Grill

Price: 

$160

The Volcano 3 Collapsible Grill has a very unique design that enables it to be compressed from a 17" height down to 5" for easy storage and transport. Take it out of the included storage bag and pop it open. The legs automatically extend with the body. When finished, the whole unit retracts back to fit in the carrying case. Pretty neat! It burns propane, charcoal or wood... Read More

Bayou Classic Fold and Go Portable Charcoal Grill

Price: 

$55

Bayou Classic's Fold and Go Portable Charcoal Grill is easy to carry, folding up into a compact attaché case size that weighs less than 7 pounds. Unfortunately the lightness is achieved by using thin flimsy construction. If you don't mind schlepping around something a little bigger and heavier you can do way better. Even a nice little grill like Weber's Smokey Joe costs less... Read More

BODUM FYRKAT Picnic Charcoal Grill

Price: 

$80

BODUM's FYRKAT Picnic Charcoal Grill is a small, portable kettle with a cool look, available in bright red and lime green. 15 inch diameter and 5.6 pound weight make it slightly smaller than the far superior Weber Smoky Joe.

MISSING COMMENTS. On March 16, 2014 the company that supplied the software for our comments section went out of business. The company that bought them was not up to our standards, so on April 17, 2014 we moved to a new service and and thousands of previous comments were lost. So we must begin again. Sigh.
