It's a three-hit combo- a brass knuckle meat tenderizer to soften up the meat, the hickory smoker box for extra deep flavor penetration, and pro-style thermometers to pull the steaks off at exactly the right moment.

The Right Tools for the Job

There's a line that separates the amateurs from the professionals. It's certainly in the training and the experience, but folks often forget about the importance of your equipment. Just like you can't win a NASCAR Cup in your grocery-getter, can't crush a golf ball into orbit without a high-end driver, and aren't going to take a trophy buck without a zeroed-in tack-driver, your grilling game will never go next level without the right gear. You gotta have the right tools for the job.

Like a Grill-ionaire

Fortunately, you don't need to shell out a mountain of cash to get the equipment you need to get you to grilling nirvana. We've included some of the best accessories that every man needs to get that Grillionaire status.

Our Grill Master Man Crate includes a cast-iron smoker box and some hickory wood chips to get you started. Set the smoker box on the grill as it warms up, soak the hickory in some water, and drop 'em into the box as your meat grills. Take note, men: real flavor shouldn't come from a bottled labeled "liquid smoke."

We threw in a set of four steak thermometers, too. You may say, "hey, Team Man Crates, isn't that cheating?" And we say, "nay." There's no dishonor in knowing how done your steak is. And when you cut into a perfectly-cooked slab of beef, you too shall understand that G.I. Joe wasn't kidding when he said that Knowing Is Half the Battle.

And because "the right tool for every job" means that sometimes you'll require some brute force, we've included a brass-knuckle meat tenderizer. Nothing blows off the steam from a long, hard day at work like beating your meat into submission.

Bone Doctors

We search tirelessly, every day, to find the best-in-class goods to put in our crates. Hundreds of sauces came and went, the grills burned for weeks, until finally a victor emerged. An unexpected dark horse, a little-known operation out of Virginia became the Cindarella story of the Man Crates grilling taste-off.  We proudly present Bone Doctors' BBQ sauces- a pair of masterpiece sauces and a brilliant spice blend.

So fire up the grill, and call your agent: after all, you're about to go pro.

      Best Gift Ever!

      This is the coolest gift.The sauces are awesome, but the brass knuckle meat tenderizer is the best part!

      awesome concept.

      Super easy to order and arrived faster than I expected. I'm not sure about the contents because it is a groomsman gift and the wedding is in late July. I'll try to give a better review after.

      Whoop Whoop!

      Loved the Grill Master set! Only got one use out of the thermometers, my boyfriend thought it was a rectal thermometer one night when we were getting frisky and there ended up being an unfortunate misunderstanding, and needless to say, we don't keep those in the house anymore. Anyway, loved the rest of the set! Keep up the good work!

      Perfect 5th Year Anniversary Present

      Since the gifting theme for a 5 year anniversary is wood, this was a no brainer! So perfect for my husband! The best part was watching him struggle to get this open - so manly :)

      Bought this for my dad's birthday...what else do you get a 70 year old who has everything. Loved it! I got the industrial strength wrapping and got a kick out of it. His only regret was NOT recording the opening! Glad you guys are part of my hometown, RWC!

      High Five!

      Bought this for my son for his birthday. He loves to grill so this was perfect. I wished I was there to see his face when he opened it, his wife confirmed it was a site to see! The end results is that he loved it! High five to Man Crate and to MOM (me) for finding your website! I highly recommend this for all the men in your life. PS...he saved the crate, it is place in his Man Cave for everyone to see. I do wish I would have gotten it gift wrapped with the duct tape that would have been icing on the "crate"!

      Unique Gift!

      My husband LOVED this for Valentine's Day. I looked online for days trying to find something unique to get him this year, because I hate to just keep giving the same boring gifts over and over. I am so happy that I stumbled upon this site!! The quality of the items in this crate was very good, the crate arrived very quickly and on-time. It was so funny watching him prying it open with the crowbar - he thought it was the best gift ever! Thanks for making such a "manly" quality item! I will be purchasing more of these for future gifts for all of the men in my life! Please put the whiskey crate back in stock soon!

    Guide to the regions of American Barbecue

    Barbecue- a word so glorious you practically smell it as you read it.  A word we use to describe a piece of backyard equipment, a category of food, and a summertime verb, because barbecue is more than any of these things- it's our way of life.

    We can distinguish barbecue from grilling by it's lower cooking temperatures, longer cooking times, and use of smoke to infuse extra flavor.  Like everything truly American, barbecue is a shared national passtime defined by regional traditions. Let's compare the classic American Barbecue styles.

    Kansas city barbecueKansas City Barbecue

    Kansas City, Missouri, has been home to the most popular style of American barbecue for over 100 years.  When you think of the tender ribs or chicken covered in thick, slightly sweet sauces that you get at your everyday neighborhood diner, it's probably in the Kansas City style. The tomato, vinegar, and sugar flavors in Kansas City sauce are so bold and distinctive that some people pour this sauce onto grilled meats and mistakenly present it as barbecue.

    Bone Doctor's Original sauce is an elegant, powerful, and most importantly, delicious expression of the Kansas City style of barbecue sauce. Kick off your American flavor tour by making your next batch of ribs with the hickory smoker box and a liberal slathering of Bone Doc's original sauce.

    Texas Barbecue Quick FactsTexas Barbecue

    In Texas, barbecue means beef. In the state where everything is bigger, hotter, and arguably better, Texans can generally agree barbecue means slow cooking beef until it's fall-off-the-bone tender. However in classic Texas style, the state is divided on a lot of the details beyond that- central, eastern, and southern Texans have distinct variations on flavor and process.  Forced to make generalizations, we'd say look for longer cooking times, more emphasis on peppers in the sauce, and beef for days to characterize classic Texas style.

    North Carolina BarbequeNorth Carolina Barbecue

    Perhaps the most regional of the sauces, many unlucky Americans may never have encountered true North Carolina barbecue. Tomatoes are notably absent in Carolina sauces, completely replaced by a bolder, balanced blend of vinegar and peppers.  Carolinian barbecue is almost always pork, and if done well is always delicious.

    The Southern Bone Doctors are no strangers to the art of Carolina Barbecue- their Carolina Bold sauce uses apple cider vinegar to deliver amazing flavor to pulled pork.  Get some.  

    Memphis Barbecue Quick FactsMemphis Barbecue

    The dry rub. The anti-sauce. Memphis is home to some of the best rib eateries in the world, and the world's largest pork barbecue competition. Dry rubs rely entirely on the interaction between the natural juices and flavors in the meat to convey the carefully mixed peppers and spices.  In Memphis, the long smoking process is like a 40 year marriage between meat and spice- the two spend so much time together that they become literally inseparable and better for it.

    As much about process as specific ingredients, great chefs personalize and perfect their dry rub mix over years. You can get started with Bone Doctor's premium spice blend. If you didn't already know, you'll find that ribs don't need to be covered in tomato sauce to be finger-licking good.
