Recipes Every Man Should Know

Before they get to copyright information or any sort of Table of Contents, Recipes Every Man Should Know declares, "This book is for hungry guys," so we were like, "Yup, that sounds about right," and picked ourselves up a copy.  Even if your kitchen skill-set has progressed beyo...

Eat Like A Man: The Only Cookbook A Man Will Ever Need

Eat Like A Man: The Only Cookbook A Man Will Ever Need

There are but a few things in life that man only needs one of: a quality hammer, a favorite pair of jeans, a reliable winter coat and a cookbook. You're not going to call Triple-A to change your flat, so why rely on someone else to give you the proper nourishment your growing bod...

Adjustable Nonstick Burger Press

Adjustable Nonstick Burger Press

Chances are you’ve already fired up the grill once for the season. Even if it isn’t warm yet where you live, it’s the time of year where guys get some sort of pre-programmed urge to ingest the smell of charcoal and flame-licked meat (that sounded oddly sexual). Along with ...

Steak Button Thermometer Set

Steak Button Thermometer Set

With warm weather fast approaching our minds immediately turn to ballpark beers and hotdogs, women tossing their chunky sweaters into space-saver bags and firing up the grill on an almost daily basis.  Nothing ruins a great steak quicker than searing it into a hockey puck or ser...

Grill Pocket Press

Grill Pocket Press

When it comes to British food our approach is one of cautious acceptance.  We’ll sniff and poke like a dog feeling out a new polished wood floor home.  While this can lead to mixed results, we can safely say that when it comes to food the British have two things right:  Pl...

Das ApfelBrett Macbook Cutting Board

Das ApfelBrett Macbook Cutting Board

So we made a mistake. We originally posted this as a Macbook case, which it most definitely isn't. The editor who did this was carried off from his desk by two large men in suits, taken out behind the barn, and sho... verbally reprimanded. Anyway, Das ApfelBrett is a pretty w...

Charcoal Companion Steak Station Thermometer

Charcoal Companion Steak Station Thermometer

We're not sure how it started, but grilling meat sort of became a de facto gauge of a man's substance. If you torch your food into what looks like well-done meteorites, well, that doesn't do any favors for your image as a capable guy (which, if there's a definition of a "guy", ...

Dave's Gourmet Adjustable Heat Hot Sauce

Dave's Gourmet Adjustable Heat Hot Sauce

You ever go down the sauce aisle at the grocers and find hundreds of hot sauce choices? Each one touts something special, and many of them claiming the ultimate spiciness with labels like "Jimmy's Fire Sauce! (Dispense Only Under Chemical Hood)" or "Bob's Fire Goo, Made from Drag...

How to Cook Meat

How to Cook Meat

It's true: every man should know how to cook meat.   Knowing how to change a tire, read a map, use a hammer and yes, cook meat, comes with the territory of having testicles. Truth be told though, cooking meat well--and we don't mean more than medium rare--is actually quite a sub...

Knife Block

Knife Block

In the list of manly things that don't involve gasoline or firearms, nothing ranks higher than chopping wood. It's a trip to the gym that gives you physical results (glamour muscles don't count). More importantly, it gives you a reason to swing around a big ass weapon. The Knife ...

Bacon Hot Sauce

Bacon Hot Sauce

There are a few questions that every man hates hearing from a woman. Can you please wash the dishes? Do you really need another watch? Do you want bacon on that? Of course you need another watch. You're definitely not doing the dishes. And what kind of question is that? Of course...

The River Cottage Meat Book

The River Cottage Meat Book

Meat - whether it's beef, lamb, pig, or poultry is something that's close to every man's heart, and hopefully closer to his stomach (even if there are no bjs involved). Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is an Englishman that loves and respects everything that walks on four legs - as lo...

F. Dick Double-Edged Cleaver

F. Dick Double-Edged Cleaver

Can you really have too much of a good thing, especially when it comes to blades? Unfortunately, dual-wielding cleavers is quite, well, unwieldy, so F. Dick decided to improve upon their cleaver by making it double-edged. If it worked for George Lucas with lightsabers, the same p...

Guy Fieri Knuckle Sandwich Knives

Guy Fieri Knuckle Sandwich Knives

Truly a tool worthy of a man's kitchen, the Guy Fieri Knuckle Sandwich Knives are nothing like those boring black handled blades you're used to. The handles have a paint job a hot rod would envy—inlaid black and red flame and star on the handle and tribal flames on the blade. T...
