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

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.

Primo Oval Junior

Price: 

$858

The Primo Oval Junior is their smallest oval model. They make a smaller, round ceramic model called Kamado, which is a traditional design and lacks the ability for 2-zone setups.

Additional racks that sit on the primary cook surface are available to extend cooking capacity even further... Read More

Primo Oval XL

Price: 

$1,341

The Primo Oval XL is their largest cooker.

$399

The new Char-Griller Kamado Acorn Grill, like its predecessor the King-Griller Kamado Kooker, is a double wall, insulated  steel egg that is much lighter, in some ways more durable, and way less expensive than ceramic Kamados.
