Another great BBQ tool

This is a tool we sell that is too good not to brag about. And it would have saved the forgotten pork ribs I left in my smoker all last night (a little dry by morning). This is from Outset and has several options for use. It includes two probes and can be set with two alarms at different temperatures. No more guessing with time and temperature. Simply set the alarm for the appropriate 'cooked' temperature and go about your other duties (or not, if the hammock nearby is available). The alarm will tell you when the proper temp has be reached without under cooking or over cooking the expensive cuts you splurged on for your feast. Compare prices elsewhere (we are less than $60) and you will find we have a good price with no waiting or shipping.

The Weather is perfect for flying - Rockets!

Summer is finally here and conditions are great for rockets. If you haven't tried model rockets from Estes or Quest, we can help. Model rocketry is an inexpensive way to build skills with young people and have fun. Start with our new kit from Quest. It includes an easy to build model that anyone can build (with a little time for glue and paint to dry with help from an adult), and the launch equipment. Add a fresh set of alkaline batteries and an open area with little or no wind. We tried this some years ago and had every kid within half a mile watching us by the third launch. The new Quest kit (compatible with Estes) includes all you need to get started except batteries. We recommend you take some extra engines and a 'field kit' for your first flight. The Quest kit pictured is only $29.97 from Clubb's in our model and hobby department. Good to go, ready to launch!

Dads Love Maps

Our frame shop has sold the Raven map line for nearly 20 years and we continually get 'Ooohs' and 'Ahhs' when customers shop in our store. These make a beautiful addition to a room and remember: 'Dads love maps'.

Dad needs the right tools for BBQ

Father's Day is coming up and why not present Dad with some new tools for good tasting returns. The BBQ wok from Fox Run is the easy way to grill vegetables. Jalapeno Poppers are always popular whether roasted in an oven or over a charcoal fire. The Kingsford probe meat thermometer's magnetized back holds it firmly to the outside of grill or oven and sounds an alarm when roasted meat has reached the safe and perfect temperature. Or give him the gift of precision and freedom - a grill thermometer with a wireless remote.
Set it and he can take the remote up to 30 feet away (near the hammock or other favorite nap spot).
