Ergonomic handle provides control and leverage when cleaning dirty grates.

This award-winning Dirty Bird BBQ rub will take your cooking to the next level, helping you transform poultry, or even beef, into lip-smacking, delicious meat… you’ll be sure to “wow” even the toughest of BBQ critics! One 11 ounce jar.

This Sold…This Victorinox boning knife is as sharp as can be and is so inexpensive that you don’t have to be too fussy about caring for it. I use this knife to trim briskets, pork butts, and other barbecue meats and I couldn’t ask for a better knife. Flexible blade makes it easy to cut around bones in poultry. The perfect stocking stuffer!

This Sold…Want to try your hand at making authentic Central Texas style brisket? Then you’ll need some authentic pink butcher paper! This is the stuff they use to wrap briskets during the final few hours of cooking to make them nice and tender without turning them into pot roast.

I know magazines are kind of old-fashioned, but I really enjoy receiving Cook’s Country magazine every other month. It’s big, it’s colorful, and it contains lots of interesting recipes that can be made by any home cook at any skill level. I get lots of inspiration from Cook’s Country for barbecue recipes that I adapt to the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker as well as side dishes and desserts, too.

Sous vide is not just for high-end chefs! Consider this: You can smoke a whole brisket today, vacuum pack it and freeze it, pull it out of the freezer 6 months from now, drop the frozen brisket in the vacuum bag directly into a sous vide bath and 5 hours later have a perfect 160°F internal temp brisket! Change in plans: Mom and the kids will be 2 hours late for dinner. No worries! Leave the brisket in the sous vide and it will be exactly the same at 7:00pm as it was at 5:00pm. You can do this and more with this Anova Culinary sous vide setup including 16 liter cooking container.

This is the last 4-quart sauce pan you will ever buy. Period. Yes, All-Clad stainless steel tri-ply pans are expensive, but as we say about Weber grills, “Buy the best and only cry once.” This is the go-to pan in my household for simmering pasta sauce, boiling moderate quantities of dried pasta, or making soups like pozole. The loop helper handle is essential for moving this loaded pan safely between stovetop and sink. Works on induction, gas, electric, ceramic, and halogen cooktops and is oven/broiler safe to 600°F without the lid.

Trust me, this is a great grill!
