Need an inexpensive, no fuss, portable cooking surface? Blackstone's popular 17" Tabletop Griddle is great for camping, tailgating and RV use. Although not designed for cooking thick steaks and big hunks of meat, this “liddle” griddle churns out small quantities of foods that cook quick like bacon, eggs, pancakes, burgers, thin steaks and chopped veggies. Welcome to short order cooking... Read More

The Blackstone 36" Griddle Cooking Station is an interesting, low cost, large capacity, portable cook top. A stainless steel version is available and it is also offered in a smaller 28" size. Four 15,000 BTU burners generate enough sizzle to do some serious cooking, although it may not stand up to heavy professional use. Indeed the brief 90 day warranty is voided if used for commercial...

Available exclusively at Wal-Mart, the Range Top Combo packs a lot of features and creature comforts into a modest $396 price tag. This cooker has five... Read More

The Broil King Keg 5000 is a high quality kamado cooker, at home in the backyard or hitched to a vehicle. It excels at smoking, roasting, baking and searing thin meats. While competitive brands charge extra for just about everything but the logo, The Keg comes fully equipped with stand, shelves, extender rack and a ”Multi-tool” which helps handle the grate and dampers and doubles as an...

The Broil King Signet 320 is an entry level, 3-burner Gas Grill that packs a lot of value under the hood. We tested the previous version of this attractive, modestly priced 3-burner which is identical except for the shelves (described below). Signet gets hot fast and is able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The bad news is, with all burners... Read More

  The Broil-Mate 165154 LP Gas Grill, (aka Huntington Cast 4200), is a throwback to the first BBQ gas grills which began appearing in the early 1960s and are still made by American companies like Modern Home Products. Back then, cast aluminum housings were the norm instead of stainless or coated steel. The aluminum cookbox retains heat and distributes it evenly. Although the casting on... Read More

The Camp Chef Smoke Vault 24" is the larger of their two vertical gas smokers. Many BBQ gas smokers have limited cooking temperature range and can't get down and hold low and slow temps of 225⁰. But Smoke Vault's 18,000 BTU burner can be dialed down to 160⁰ and cranked up to 400⁰! Vertical gassers are often narrow making it a challenge to do ribs. With two 21.5"W x 14"D smoking racks...

Camp Chef's Woodwind Pellet Smoker is a quality smoker and super searing grill wrapped up in one. Though often referred to as pellet grills, most are smokers with limited grilling capability at best. In 2017 Camp Chef introduced their optional LP gas Sear Box which can be added onto all of their current SmokePro Pellet Smokers. Woodwind is a package deal that comes standard with the... Read More

This upgraded riff on the old practice of slow cooking meat and veggies in a cream can over an open fire employs a high-temperature silicone gasket around the lid which seals tight with clamps while excess steam is released via a small hole in the lid. Built out of food grade anodized aluminum, the CanCooker Original has a four gallon capacity and is said to feed up to 20. It can be... Read More

  Lowe's calls this 2015 exclusive model The Char-Broil Commercial Stainless/Black 3-Burner Gas Grill. It is a new version of the previous TRU-Infrared Commercial line.  The lid has an inner double layer to help keep in heat. It is capable of high enough heat for searing, and low enough for smoking. Furthermore you can create smoke easily by tossing food grade wood chips, sawdust, or... Read More

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
