Kalamazoo-Gourmet-Shokunin-Kamado-Grill

The Shokunin is a serious grill for the serious outdoor cook. First of all, it’s a U.S. made, hand-welded and hand-assembled Kamado grill that generates insane temperatures thanks to its shape, insulation, and air circulation. Kamados use ancient Japanese cooking techniques that utilize wood or coal to fuel the burn, and the Shokunin seems it might one-up the legendary Big Green egg via its increased usable cooking surface area, substantial 304-grade stainless steel construction, and two-inch thick insulation that allows the Shokunin to reach temps of more than 1,200 degrees while keeping the exterior cool enough to touch. The super-dense and weather-resistant Ipe wood handle and artful legs top off this handsome but heavy (200 pounds) grill, and it’s one that’s constructed to last for years. The asking price hasn’t been announced yet, but it’ll easily be worthy of the Kobe Wagyu, Bluefin Tuna, or Black Iberian pig that the Shokunin will make you want to fire up. The Shokunin goes on sale this summer.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
