Traeger Ironwood 885

Traeger Ironwood 885

BroBible / Cass Anderson


Bros, consider this your heads up that after not having a smoker for the past six months I’m now officially back in the game thanks to my new Traeger Ironwood 885 Smoker. This is easily the best smoker/grill I’ve ever owned and frankly it’s not even a close competition.

I plan on publishing an extensive review of the Traeger Ironwood 885 in the coming days but wanted to put this on your radar now for anyone who is looking to make a decision on a new smoker in the near future. The first two things I’ve made were a 16-pound Prime Rib Roast that my family claims is one of the best cuts of meat I’ve ever smoked and the other was an incredible pork loin.

I have some more recipes I want to make before doing my full review but the functionality of this smoker has completely blown me away. The ability to control the temperature and set temp schedules through the Traeger app and the smoker’s WiFIRE Technology is incredible. I went golfing last Sunday with my dad while the Prime Rib Roast was smoking (500 for 30 minutes, 300 for 4.5 hours) and was able to monitor everything from my phone while I was on the golf course (wife was still at home). The Traeger Ironwood 885 makes me want to repeat the phrase ‘The Future Is Now’. Check it out at that ‘shop now’ link below!

George Dickel Bottled In Bond Spring Vintage

George Dickel Bottled in Bond Spring 2021

George Dickel


The new George Dickel Bottled in Bond from Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. began hitting shelves this month and it’s nothing short of spectacular. I’ll explain a few reasons why you should go out of your way to find this release. First and foremost, the price. Its suggested retail is $44.99 which I believe makes it the best bang for your buck Bottled-in-Bond release on the market. Beyond that is every reason you would expect.

This limited-edition 13-year-old BiB came from Spring 2007. It follows Dickel’s award-winning Fall 2005 and Fall 2008 limited runs. It is bottled at 100-proof and best enjoyed neat or on the rocks, but it also lends itself perfectly to making a Manhattan cocktail.

This marks the first Spring vintage in George Dickel’s Bottled-in-Bond series but like the others it has nutty flavors, notes of cherry, and the mashbill of 84% corn, 8% rye and 8% malted barley comes together in perfect harmony before being chill charcoal mellowed like all of George Dickel’s whiskeys.

Stix Golf Clubs

While the big-name brands out there have the top of the market saturated for the more experienced players and those that just have to get their hands on the newest clubs each year, Stix has the market cornered for the casual golfer that wants aesthetically pleasing, better quality clubs that won’t break the bank.

You could spend countless hours online just searching for the driver you want to purchase, and more often than not, the casual golfer is going to gravitate toward the most expensive one on the market because a higher price point has to mean it’s the best option for every player, even for someone that may not even play 10 rounds per year. That same mindset would likely ring true for every other club in the bag, this is where the beauty of Stix Golf truly shines.

Happy Hour Hero

To give you an idea of how good this whiskey is, they submitted it in an unmarked bottle to the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and it’s already been awarded a Double Gold medal in a blind taste test. The judges tasted it and immediately demanded answers, that’s how good it is.

The whiskey itself is 10-Year Aged Heaven’s Door Bourbon that is finished in Redbreast’s world-renowned Single Pot Still Casks for 15 months. The flavors come together in pursuit of flavor perfection. This 100-proof Master Blenders’ Edition is perfect for hosting your next happy hour.

It has complex dark red fruit notes on the nose and on the palate you’ll get smooth notes of raisin, buttery goodness, walnut, nougat, and marzipan. The finish lingers with a touch of honeya= and Irish honeycomb sweetness. Check it out at the link below!

Heavens Doors x Redbreast The Master Blenders’ Edition

Heaven's Door Redbreast Masters Blenders Edition

I had the good fortune of doing a virtual tasting this week with Heaven’s Door master blender Ryan Perry and Billy Leighton of Redbreast Irish Whiskey. Ryan and Billy shared their new Heavens Doors x Redbreast The Master Blenders’ Edition with me. This is the first-ever collaboration for these brands and it’s truly astounding.

To give you an idea of how good this whiskey is, they submitted it in an unmarked bottle to the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and it’s already been awarded a Double Gold medal in a blind taste test. The judges tasted it and immediately demanded answers, that’s how good it is.

The whiskey itself is 10-Year Aged Heaven’s Door Bourbon that is finished in Redbreast’s world-renowned Single Pot Still Casks for 15 months. The flavors come together in pursuit of flavor perfectioin. I have lots of notes from the tasting and will have a longer review coming in the near future but I wanted to put this on your radar because you can try and pre-order a bottle by hitting that ‘shop now’ button below and heading over to ReserveBar.
