7. MAC 10.5 inch Black Ceramic Honing Rod

Mac_black_ceramicThis is the best ceramic honing rod on the market for keeping your knives in razor sharp condition.  The Mac Black Ceramic Honing Rod is an extremely hard 81° Rockwell compared to metal rods (“steels”) at 62° and white ceramic rods at 76°. The rod must be significantly harder than the steel blade so that the softer blade hones when rubbed against the harder rod.

 4.  Niedner ECONOFLO FORESTRY FIRE HOSE, 3/4 Inch x 50 Ft.,


At this point you’re going whuuuut? Fire hose? More people ask us about this at comps than anything else. It’s a flat portable 3/4″ fire hose designed for smoke jumpers.  Here’s why it’s great for BBQ cooks that travel – 50 feet of this hose rolls up into an 8 inch coil and weighs 24 ounces. No more huge coils of rubber hose. Don’t confuse this with the cheap expand-o hose you get at Home Depot or Lowes. This hose is rated for 300 psi service with a burst pressure of 600 psi. More than enough to handle the high water pressure found at a lot of fairgrounds.
