Masterbuilt Electric Digital Smokehouse

If you were to associate cooking with a form of art, the act of smoking food would fall under the scope of impressionism. With the addition of wood-fueled smoke, the color and structure of the original form of food is changed, creating a new harmonic experience different than that of the original. If that’s too artsy of explanation, try this: smoking food infuses flavor more easily and consistently than any other form of cooking; and it’s f’ing delicious. Smoking purists may balk at that statement; but, with the introduction of the digital smoker, the 5am wake-up call to stoke the fire is all but history. The Masterbuilt Digital Electric Smoker, [...]

Quick-Dry Food Dehydrator by Good Cooking

The new Quick Dry Food Dehydrator contains four trays to dry large batches of foods at once.  The shelves nest for easy storage.   Eric, Bite of the Best team  - I recently tested this lightweight, user-friendly unit that's easily programmable with only four buttons, even the novice epicurean can feel like an accomplished chef. The dehydrator operates at a sound similar to the low stove-top fan setting; the washable trays make clean-up a breeze. I  suggest this product for the at-home cook looking to venture into the art of dried food - it's easy to use, easy to clean and easy to store!

Zach’s Zombie Sauce

We’re just a couple of guys who love to cook, eat and watch zombie films. We’ve always had a soft spot for Dawn of the Dead and spicy concoctions, but the watery, one-dimensional hot sauces that deliver mouth-melting heat with no flavor left us wanting more. We knew we could create something better, so we started blending exotic peppers and spices from India, Japan, Thailand, Mexico, Europe and South America to create a sauce that had both heat and delicious flavor. All of our products are vegan, made with fresh ingredients, and contain no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, artificial colors or chemical preservatives. The original Zombie is a [...]
