BBQ SAFETY

In lieu of the recent wildfire tragedy I thought it would be appropriate to discuss grilling and barbecuing safely.First of all I want to make clear that you CAN grill and barbeque even with the current fire ban. You can only do so at a private residence and you still must use common sense.You CANNOT grill or barbecue at most parks, open spaces, National Forests, etc. The safety of your back patio is perfectly legal in Colorado Springs city limits. Unincorporated El Paso County does have a ban…See More

Big Box Stores Versus Specialty shops

Occasionally, I have a customer come in and point out that Home Depot or Lowe's carry grills and smokers cheaper than we have them.I have an answer for that and would love to share that philosophy.First of all, the big box stores operate on volume profit. This means they sell a ton of something for a lower profit margin (lower price). The more they sell, the more they make. The cheaper they can buy the product and sell a bunch of them, the more they make.Unfortunately, in order to purchase…See More

How to BBQ the lazy man's way

Many people ask me as the owner of a BBQ supply store how do I have to patience and whatnot to make good barbecue. I simply explain to them that making barbeque isn't hard if you have the right gadgets! It doesn't hurt to be a male as we guys like our toys. First, I bbq on a wood pellet grill. These are the latest in bbq technology. You plug them in, fill the hopper with bbq grade allnatural wood pellets, set the temperature and walk away. The grill does everything else for you. An auger feeds…See More

BARBECUING DOESN'T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE ABOUT MEAT!

Well, we are on the downside of winter which is good news for you “seasonal” BBQ/grillers! I have to admit, this time of year I tend to start getting Spring fever as well even though I BBQ all year long.This time of year; especially here in Colorado, can cause drastic outside temperature variations. I have already blogged about some easy ways to help maintain constant temperature in your grill or smoker.  One cheap and easy way is to wrap your grill with an inexpensive welder’s blanket.Lately I…See More

HOW TO CHECK YOUR GRILL/SMOKER TEMPERATURE

 The beauty of BBQing is that is can be so simple. Although I love to BBQ, I can barely boil water in the kitchen so I stick to BBQing. JAs I have mentioned in the past, the key to BBQing is to be able to maintain a constant temperature in your grill. First thing you need to do with any grill no matter if it's gas, charcoal, electric or wood pellet is see how the grill keeps its temperature. You can do that be placing a thermometer inside the grill and running your grill at various temps.…See More

Smoking with a BBQ grill

There is a misconception that you need a high priced grill in order to smoke foods on it. Although the higher priced grills such as ceramic grills or wood pellet grills that we carry at Colorado BBQ Outfitters do make it extremely simple with great results, it is not necessary to have one to still make great smoked foods on your deck or patio. The key to being able to get good results from smoking foods is simple. First, you must have something that can hold the temperature constant. Whether…See More

BURN BAN DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN'T GRILL OR BBQ!!

Colorado BBQ Outfitters would like everyone to know that the recent stage 2 burn ban issued by El Paso County and the City of Colorado Springs does not mean you cannot BBQ or grill at your private residence. If you are within the city limits of Colorado Springs, you can grill or BBQ at your private residence as long as you do not have any combustible material near or around your grilling area. Many people think they cannot cook outside which is simply not true. The ban does apply to open spaces…See More

What is a wood pellet grill?

Colorado BBQ Outfitters would just like to remind everyone that Colorado Springs does allow bbqing, grilling, and/or smoking at residences. Wood pellet grills are the best and safe alternative to gas or charcoal. Wood pellet grills look just like any other grill for the most part. They have a hopper on the side that holds bbq good grade wood pellets. There are many pellet brands on the market but, we here at Colorado BBQ Outfitters, stand behind the Lumberjack brand. Burns very well with very…See More
