The art of barbecue differs from place to place. Different rubs, sauces, spices—it’s all about local tradition. This collection of regional sauces takes you from one end of the Barbecue Belt to the other with an array of five sauces from America’s foremost BBQ hotspots: Kansas City, Texas, two from Tennesse and one from North Cackalacka.
Handmade from heavy duty 9-ounce leather, this belt is brand new. But through a secret weathering process, the dudes at Portel manage to make it look like it’s been up to Laconia Bike Week a few times. But nope. It looks like this fresh out of the wrapper. Hand-burnished edges and nickel-plated steel hardware make the “used & abused” look complete.
Tom’s Shoes was built upon their One-for-One donation strategy. For every pair they sell, they donate a pair to a child in need. This charity outreach has now shoed literally millions of kids. Now, Tom’s is giving the hipsters something else to make them feel good about. Sunglasses. Buy any pair of these shades and help Tom’s bring vision to the world’s sightless and vision impaired.
We’re always featuring new digital cameras. Mainly, because a new model comes out every other day and they’re all good for about one drop off the edge of the table. Replacement is inevitable. This updated Lumix GF3 is small yet powerful, bridging the gap between pocket-size convenience and pro SLR results. Just try not to drop it.
On a hot summer day, the last thing you want to happen with your wheelbarrow full of steaming manure is to lose a grip and dump it out halfway to your destination. Talk about losing your shit! The sturdy steel loop handles on this 6-cubic foot hauler make all the difference. They help you keep a grip from portage to pour-out, no bull.
Fact: Everything is better with beer. Even cookies. These Black & Tan cookies use a bit of butterscotch ale in the ganache crust as well as good ol’ Guiness in the cookie dough. Unlike beer, these won’t make you fat & drunk … just fat. L.A.-based Batch From Scratch bakers also make a whiskey cookie. Give those a shot, too.
Over the years, Specialized has teamed up with dozens of brands for a variety of bike builds, but this most recent collaboration with McLaren—an institution in F-1 racing and high-end auto performance—tops all the rest. For the absolute best and baddest in lightweight, stiff, and aerodynamic materials, Specialized tapped the dudes at McLaren and the result is a bike that is so crazy light and trick you’ll barely believe it’s UCI-legal.
The guys in Into The Cold don’t cut their arms off with a pocketknife, but there’s still some excitement. Follow explorer/environmentalist Sebastian Copeland and his partner on their 2-month, 400-mile walk around the North Pole where they brave crushing cold and the stark frozen vastness of the world’s most inhospitable place. Look at it this way, you don’t know how this movie ends. Isn’t that exciting in itself?
Power cords all seem to slide off the edge of the desk down into the dusty abyss. It’s enough to make you head butt the desktop repeatedly. Save your forehead, try the Pinza. It’s about as simple as putting a brick on top of the cords, but much smaller and cooler looking. Cast in Stainless steel & hand-polished, this heavy little nugget holds multiple cords in place, preventing the powerful urge to headbutt.
When you translate “murdered out” into German, it’s something like “ermordet draußen,” which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. Maybe that’s why they named their new, ultra-limited edition M3 coupe the Frozen Black Edition. It’s got a custom satin finish that’s nothing but black—sort of Batmobile-ish and stealthy. Only 20 of these black stallions are coming to America, good luck getting on that list.
