BBQ Stuff

Just ask my wife and she'll confirm that I most likely own too many grills & BBQ books.  Yes I love to grill & smoke and do I all year long even if I live in a area with too much snow (I have an old Napoleon I keep just for winter!).  So thought I'd share the cookbooks I use and shamelessly connect them to Amazon (another source of financial drain in this household) so you can grab your own.

Enjoy & don't blame me for the weight gain!

Napoleon Prestige 500 My main grill, got the one with the rear burner for rotisserie & no side burners which I never use.  Prestige or Mirage?  Prestige is made in Canada, Mirage China.  Your call but I bought it for the long haul.  Love it. Link Link
Weber 1-touch 22,5" Gold Gotta love charcoal, and there is nothing better when you have enough time to use it.  Got the Gold for the ash removal, very useful.  Fun tool. Link Link
Weber Smokey Mountain 18.5" Awesome tool, next time I'll go for the 22." unit.  If you've never used a smoker it's really easy and does miracles to ribs & salmon. Link Link
Napoleon Ultrachef Grill This is what I used before the Presige 500, kept it and use it on the deck for winter with all that snow.  Yes, I'll grill in freezing temperatures.  Good basic unit, much better built than the low-cost department store ones. Link Sorry
