Here's a quick list off the top of our heads: multitools, drills, grilling spatulas, hammers, pliers, the list keeps going for a while.

Brooklynese Kitchenware

Before the hipster invasion, Brooklynites were known for having a way of speaking that wasn't characterized by aloofness and cryptic irony. Those from Manhattan's little brother were known for a bit of an accent that seemingly had a hard time ending any word with an "r." As an ode to those fine folks, there are these ... continue reading

Special Sh*t Seasoning

Bull Shit. Special Shit. Aw Shit. Good Shit. Hot Shit. Dip Shit. BBQ Shit?

Spice Holder With Lid

Right now, we've got a wooden salt keeper on our kitchen counter and the rest of our spices on a rotating platform in a cabinet.

City Boy Picnic Grill

Blanket on the grass or the sand. Cool beer within arms reach. Ladies in sundresses or bikinis. Maybe even a good book or some quality tunes. Picnics can be fun, but there always seems to be something missing from the outdoor, day drinking party. The one thing that you need to set it over the top is the smell of cooking ... continue reading

Stake 3-in-1 BBQ Tool

It's finally here! Grilled meat season is upon us ladies and gentlemen. Manning (or womanning) the grill takes a few things: meat (some encased), cold beer, fire, an appetite and tools.

Jalapeno Pepper Roaster
