Ok guys I have a bud of mine who I work with and he designs all our medical instruments and of coarse he is a BBQ guy.We are going to design some cool BBQ tools and more specifically some geared toward Backwoods. I have some good ideas myself but would like to hear and ideas you may have.

I take it these tools will be made in the USA? I would be interested in what is developed and whether this is going to be a full time enterprise.

I'm working to open a BBQ supply store in GA and I want all of my products to be made in USA. As you probably know there is no line of BBQ accessories that are made in USA. Most are made in China. Look forward to hearing from you.

I think a standing hanger rack that would go on the lower grate of a WSM would be pretty nifty if it could be worked out.

I don't cook on a backwoods, but, I can see where a meat hook setup, that would hang off the top rack in a backwoods, with the other racks removed would be nice. For poultry or other meats. Ever see the hooks make for Chinese roast ducks?

Also a nice heavy duty drip pan, I mean with a solid guage of steel, that would fit correctly would be nice. Something that could be used to catch drips, or even as a braising pan.

How about something to raise the water pan out? Seen some people weld a platform on a car jack but I think it could be designed smaller.

Ok here is the Basting Deflector no more burnt goo on your fire box door.These should work out great just want to make sure they do what they need to do and we will have the popular sizes readily available and we can custom make to any size. You can leave it in or take it on and off as needed.Pricing to come shorly.

Any chance for color options?

smokinit
01-16-2013, 09:41 AM
Shouldn't be an issue just need to see if i can order single units or if I have to do a minimum. What color are you looking for.

Color wouldn't be a huge turnoff for me but if I had an option I would order red. Colored BWS seem to be coming more popular so I'm sure others might want something that matches their smoker. Black goes with everything so depending on price I probably wouldn't have an issue ordering black if that was the only option.

My first impression is "that things huge", but then I thought about it keeping drips off the driveway/patio too.

Its only 9 inches out from the smoker looks bigger than it is.

What about something for the UDS? Perhaps an ash shovel? Something to clean out the drum from drippings that miss the firebox and ash that falls out.

I can keep the price the same I just have to roll with one color base pick one of the three and I can make it the standard.

Sorry I'm not quite sure I understood what you meant. Are you saying you can offer multiple colors or your supplier is saying you only have 1 option. If its only 1 option for you to stock black would probably be your best option considering a majority of the smokers are black.

This is a great idea. It's one of the features of the Pitmaker that I really like.

And just an FYI these are made by fellow Brethren thanks Chad and Nicole for all your help .Looks like pricing around $30 plus shipping. Ground on these will be between $5 and $10 any were in the lower 48.

You know what's always needed are good, heavy duty tongs. You know, the ones you can pick up a bowling ball with! I have some, but nobody I know does. My $.02.

I can pick up whole briskets and butts/shoulders with it so... :laugh:
Here's a link to the set the tongs are part of, but you can't really see them. They're danged near 1/4" thick stainless.

Yup I have had a pair of those just not a fan of the design. Maybe time to play with something new.

Fantastic. If I had a choice I would select the first red car as the color platform for red. Can't wait to add this too my smoker. Any ETA on availability or are there more tools coming out soon we should wait for and order all together and maybe save a couple bucks?

The next goodie wont be out for a bit but these should be ready to roll in the Black color as early as next week the red shortly after that.
