Time To Fire Up The Grill

At some point in time during the dark and dirty and, let's be honest, hairy history of our species, an innovator was born. Tired of eating cold, raw mammoth meat, that enterprising caveman invented fire, and before you can grunt "ugg," he had thrown a piece of meat on it and invented grilling.


We love ourselves a good grilled steak. But sometimes, it's nice to mix it up. And if you're like us, you've wanted to try smoking your choice of dead animal for some time but are leery of making the investment in a dedicated smoker.

Well, we found ourselves a solution, and we loved it so much that we built a crate around it so that you, too, could enjoy the pleasures of smoking without having to drop a few Benjamins on a new toy. The cast-iron smoker box in this crate will quickly become your weapon-of-choice. Just set the smoker box onto the grill as it heats up, soak some of the hickory wood chips we've helpfully provided, and throw them into the box. Your steaks will come out tasting like victory. It's not just for steak, either. For maximum win, try finding some cedar chips and throwing them in next time you grill some seafood, or some mesquite when you grill pork chops. Your palate will thank you.

Extra Flavors & Snacks

We included some of our favorite rubs, steak and barbecue sauces to take your smoking habit to the next level. And since being grill-master is an arduous, thankless job that involves staring at food for ages before being able to eat it, we included some snacks to keep your stomach happy and quiet and your mind focused on the task at hand.

So throw a steak on the fire, and crack a beer in honor of your caveman forefathers. After all, you may not have invented grilling, but you're damn sure on your way to perfecting it.

    Outstanding Christmas Present

    My kids got the Hickory Grilling Man Crate and crowbar. Tried to use my hand to get the crowbar far enough under the top/crate joint and finally had to get a hammer to get it loosened up enough to be able to work around the top to get it off. The contents look like they will be used and liked. Did clean the top of the crate and the bottom of the lid and added two hinges . Using this to hold/store the accessories for my smoker ( electronic thermometer , bear claws, and a few other things ). It is well worth the effort it took to get the crate open.

    Husband Loved it

    I got the diabolical duct tape cocoon , so there was no peeking this year.
    He a absolutely loved the little crowbar. And wants me to order more for other guys now.
    Thank you for coming up with the perfect gift for men.
    Ps: he likes the grilling stuff inside too.

    Video review and demo

    I go this at a Qmissions event (they're a veteran's nonprofit that combats veteran suicide incredibly effectively). It was a fundraiser. Love this box! Here's me taking apart my Man Crate:
    Keep up the amazing work and impact, Man Crates.

    You Did It Again

    This was a really great crate. This was a gift for my father and he liked it. I hope that you never ever get rid of this crate. This was the perfect gift for him.

    My husband loves to BBQ and this was a perfect gift for him. He especially enjoyed - after he finally got the crate open - reading all the labels "If it did exist in 1850, it ain't in here." So much fun on Christmas morning. Thanks ManCrate!
