June 30, 2014
steak-on-grillThe biggest BBQ and grilling holiday is right around the corner and it just won't be the same without this line-up of must-have grilling gadgets! Most avid BBQ fiends are pretty serious about their grill. This arsenal of gadgets will guarantee a good time and great food for any 4th of July BBQ or summer party.

Enough chit-chat, let's get to the good stuff!

Grillslinger BBQ Tool Belt

The Original Grillslinger BBQ Tool Belt is top of the line for the grill master. It looks remarkably cowboy-esque, with two large compartments on either hip. These compartments are broken down into smaller customized holders for your other grilling gadgets — and of course an ice cold beer. If you're less serious about grilling and more enthusiastic about that ice cold beer, there are numerous belt alternatives, including the tactical grilling apron, a camouflage apron with gadget pockets and not one but three built in beer koozies!

60 Second Charcoal Starter

With 1290 degrees of scorching hot air, this is one of our favorite grilling gadgets! The 60 Second Charcoal Starter is a long cylindrical wand with a quick start push button. There's no need for lighter fluid or newspaper with this bad boy. The focused wave of hot air does the trick all on its own. Just be careful with this fancy toy — 1290F can do a lot of damage!

Stuff-A-Burger Press

Looking for a delicious pocket of meaty goodness? Or maybe just a way to cut down on the mess of grilling? You're going to love this Stuff-A-Burger Press! This grilling gadget makes it easy to put your burger goodies inside your hamburger patty for moist and delicious yumminess! A fair warning, make sure your appetite is raging because these patties are quite large.

 grill masterTurner Tongs

Gone is the conundrum of risking a burger overboard or puncturing holes in that perfect steak with the Turner Tongs. This fancy grilling gadget features a large spatula bottom with a smaller gripping plate on top. These sandwich-style tongs ensure a good meat grip and control over its whereabouts! The dog might not be as happy, but your productions numbers will be through the roof!

Himalayan Salt Plate

Sounds crazy, huh? But this Himalayan Salt Plate maintains even temperatures — hot and cold — like a beast! Gadget of all grilling gadgets, use the salt plate to cook veggies, seafood, and thin cuts of meat for a boost of extra flavor. Because the plate is made of sea salt deposits, it will wear down over time. But in the mean time you have an easy to clean grill enhancer!

Whether you're master of the grill or you just love a good burger, make your 4th of July part or summer BBQ a hit with these amazing grilling gadgets. For more tips and tricks for the grill, check out Shooter's Wood Fire Grill in Rapid City, South Dakota!

The History of Moose Milk

June 19, 2014
Moose MilkSummer heat is upon us and there's no better way to celebrate than with deliciously frozen mixed drinks! With the sheer number of mixed drink recipes available, you may find yourself overwhelmed — where to start? We recommend you try a local Shooter's favorite, the good old fashion Moose Milk recipe, and here's why.

History of Moose Milk
Our friends to the North concocted this sweet Canadian treat, but the exact history of Moose Milk is widely unknown. With an onslaught of amusing anecdotes and reminiscent tales from our seasoned military friends, we decided to do some digging around to get the real scoop on the Moose Milk recipe.

As it turns out, the historical rich and creamy beverage was the result of a happy accident during World War II. Looking for a little joy in wartime, the Royal Canadian Air Force hosted a dance and soiree at Camp Borden. Entertaining a mixed crowd, the base Commanding Officer tasked Flight Sergeant Jack “Pony” Moore with creating a drink appropriate for female company with enough zing to provide the attendees a good time.

Frantically working to meet the Commanding Officer's request, Flight Sergeant Pony crafted a punch of his own creation. The Moose Milk recipe (nameless at that time) was sweet and creamy enough to delight the taste buds but packed a hidden punch as it was made predominantly of rum!

Men and women alike praised the punch, delighting in its effects late into the night. It's popularity prompted the Commanding Officer's wife to ask Pony for the recipe for this mysterious drink. With a smile, Pony coined the term Moose Milk, reflecting his Canadian wit.

Today, the Moose Milk recipe is beloved nation-wide. It's commonly served throughout Canada for everything from festival holiday parties to mid morning brunch. At Shooter's, we've added to the history of Moose Milk, making the recipe our own for the delight of South Dakota locals and travelers of the Black Hills.

The Moose Milk Recipe
Feeling a bit thirsty? Enough about the past, let's jump into the present! Just like any other recipe, the Moose Milk recipe can be found in all sorts of variations. We managed to scrounge up the original Moose Milk recipe, just the way Flight Sergeant Pony made it. But be warned — these directions produce enough Moose Milk to serve an army — literally. Okay, maybe not literally, but it sure is a lot!
