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.

      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.

      Great Company!

      I ordered this crate on a Thursday afternoon and paid extra for it to be shipped by Saturday. I ordered the crate for my dad and was hoping to see his reaction while I was in town for the weekend. The crate arrived Saturday morning! My dad is a hard man to please and he couldn't get over how cool the whole concept was. We used the rub that evening and it was great. Thanks for providing such a great, quality product!

      Fun Gift to give

      Opening the crate is the best part. Although the guy I gave this too, got the crate open in less then 2 minutes (he had a hammer). Everything in this crate was good quality items. He loved everything and kept looking at the gift items throughout the evening. We used the sauces the next day. I will definitely give a Man Crate as a gift in the future. The price matches the quality of items inside the Crate.

      Great Gift!!

      I got this for my husband's birthday who is so hard to buy for. He loved this gift and opening the crate was a thrill for him. Everything in the crate was very well made and packaged perfectly. Great gift for the hard to buy man in your life.

      I did good!!

      Below is the thank you note I received from a client I sent this gift to. I think I made a good choice.

      I did use the crowbar! In fact I had to get my hammer and use the crow bar to get it open. I have to tell you that was one of the most clever, unique, fun gifts I have got in a long time. As a person who loves to grill and smoke meat (I have seven smokers, one of which will feed 1,200 people) the items inside the crate were perfect but the crate itself was awesome!

      Thank you!
      Thank you!!

      Awesome Christmas Present

      I bought this for my son for Christmas and he said what a great idea that there is a place like this. He put the box under his tree and just couldn't wait to open it. All he could talk about was the way it is packaged. We Skyped with him and watched him open it, which was very entertaining. He loved everything in the package especially the meat claws, and said they would be great for pulling pork. I never thought of that. I will be ordering again from Man-crates as this is a great business to find a unique gift for the men in your life.
