Set Smoker To Beast Mode

When the divine spirits of the Ancient World demanded animal sacrifices to satiate their celestial hunger, it was never a quick, “kill it and grill it” job.

Nay, they ordered full mammoth carcasses be slow-cooked for days over glowing coals in a smoky trap of rubs and sauces. This great wisdom was called “barbecue”, and it pleased the gods so greatly that they indulged...perhaps a bit too much.

The Woolies are long gone, but the archaic secrets of True Barbecue live on in the Pit Master Man Crate.

Heat. Eat. Repeat.

The Pit Master Crate is the Mr. Miyagi of barbecue gear, your guiding sensei on the road to fall-off-the-bone, “low & slow” True Barbecue mastery.

Meat Claws are the supreme tools for lifting and lugging huge roasts, whether you’ve dug a backyard pit to “go whole hog” or drained and lined your swimming pool to “go whole herd”. Knuckle up with these stainless steel shredders, and you’re just a few impassioned Wolverine impressions away from pristine pulled pork.

Keep your eyebrows intact with the collapsible barbecue fork, or go face to the fire with premium leather gloves intended to handle the densest meat and most intense heat.

Sauce Like A Boss

A poorly executed saucing strategy can make or break your barbecue, and we’re firmly in the “sauce while hot” camp. Glaze right over the blaze with the silicone basting brush, heat-safe to 550 degrees, and top off the cast-iron sauce pan with fine selections from the Sauce Boss himself, Mr. Rufus Teague.

Teague’s Honey Sweet and Touch of Heat flavors bring the bottled best of Kansas City to your cookout, the perfect complement to a base-taste layer of his famed meat rub. Seal the deal with a pro-style smokestack of hickory wood chips.

Open up the pit with the Pit Master Crate, and unlock the secrets of True Barbecue.

      Gotta Have It!

      I bought this for my husband for his birthday and he LOVES it! From the crazy way it was wrapped in duct tape, then a box, then the crate to the high quality gifts inside. It is incredible! We have used Rufus Teague rubs before and love them so this was just an extra bonus. Our little guy really enjoyed watching Daddy "McGiver" his way into the mystery box. This is a must have gift!!

      Terrific gift

      My son and his wife just bought a smoker. I wanted to get them something to go with it. This was a HUGE success! From the difficulty in opening the crate to the quality of everything inside it, they were really impressed! Most successful gift I ever gave them!!!

      Father's Day Success

      My husband told me as he was trying to pry the crate open, "Sealing it up like this is just a bit of overkill." I said,"No Honey, overkill would have been the diabolical duct tape wrap!" Best surprise for the man who has everything!

      Better than Magnificent Gift

      I bought this for my husband for Father's Day and it was a HUGE hit. Took my husband quite a while to get through the duct tape and then open the crate, with the grandkkids' help. He absolutely loved everything in the crate. He is very hard to buy for and in 39 years of marriage, this is only the 2nd gift he has loved. I plan on buying many more gifts from mancrate in the future. Love you guys!

      Super gift

      Birthday gift for dad. He works construction and loved how he had to figure out the crate. Contents were great quality and was a super fun experience. Thanks for thinking outside of the box.

      Gift for my son's 22nd birthday

      There is what my son texted me after he received the crate:'Ha! such a fun gift ...thank you so much (kissing face). There is a lot of stuff I was planning to get over time lol. I's right up my alley'.
      I think he really enjoyed the gift

      The best idea ever!

      I had no idea what to get my son-in-law for Christmas and my daughter was no help either. He is a Chef who loves barbecue so I typed in search for what to get a man and this site came up. This was the best idea anyone could come up with! He loved his crate and now my daughter is ordering crates through Mancrates too.

      Gift for the hubby

      My hubby loves to grill. This mancrate was a great birthday gift. The sauces are amazing. He loves the gloves and the wood chips have come in handy when making everything from meat to salsa.
      He loved the crate and is even reusing it for storing, what else, BBQ trinkets.

      Silent Auction

      We got this at a silent auction, which I think you should market yourself to more! It was a great prize and we love everything in it. The sauce is good, the rub is good and the gloves alone are worth the price!

      Gift for my Boss

      I had purchased this crate for my boss as he loves BBQ and he's pretty damn good at it. He loved everything about the gift and was impressed with the quality of items. Shipping was awesome as it arrived on time.

      Unfortunately what I was pretty upset about was how easy it was for him to open his crate. This gift comes in the squared shaped crate and all he had to do was pry it in 1 forward and 1 backward movement. Honestly I had blinked and his crate was open (no struggle at all compared to the flat rectangle crates)

      The other thing I was upset about was the duct tape packaging option. I had paid $10 extra dollars (thinking they would use a whole duct tape roll) when in reality, they had only put 1 layer of duct tape around the box. I strongly suggest that you save the $10 and duct tape it yourself.

      I do highly recommend this crate though as the items inside this gift was a huge hit.
