Pizza Chef

Some could say that 2023 may be remembered as the year of homemade pizza. Pizza ovens experienced a rise in popularity, giving home chefs confidence in creating pizza magic. Thanks to the Ooni Pizza Oven’s ultra-high heat, stone-baking, and extreme speed, you can bring restaurant-quality cooking right to your backyard—given the right ingredients. Speaking of ingredients, SCHEELS has a great selection of crusts, sauces, and seasonings that make pizza making easy and delicious.

This authentic Margherita pizza is a favorite recipe that will quickly become a go-to. You can easily make it your own by experimenting with different ingredients, just don’t forget to use the pizza seasoning.

No matter what you cook with a smoker, the delicious wood-fired aroma fills the air! The Traeger Pellet Grill is the go-to choice for every outdoor chef. The digital Pro Controller ensures your food is cooked to perfection every time, bringing restaurant-quality wood-fired flavor to your backyard with ease. Your whole neighborhood will be asking for a seat at your dinner table when they smell your Traeger fired up. 

A smoker can be used for much more than just meat. If you really want to wow friends and family, try Smoked Cinnamon Rolls. This sweet and slightly smoky treat is perfect for a festive Christmas morning breakfast that’s sure to impress!

Griddle King

One of the most versatile pieces of equipment for any home chef is the griddle. The Blackstone Griddle Cooking Station checks all the boxes, giving you 36 inches of cooking surface to create culinary masterpieces. From omelets, smash burgers and stir-fry, to steaks, chicken, and fish, all of your favorites can be made on the griddle. If you like versatility, a Blackstone Griddle is the perfect addition and will help broaden your culinary adventures. 

Freshen up your menu this winter with Baja Fish Tacos. Malcom’s Grande Gringo Mexican Seasoning adds the perfect zest to walleye. This is a quick and easy weeknight meal thanks to the Blackstone.

What You’ll Need

Grill Master

Every dedicated home chef should have a charcoal grill, and we’re not talking about your dad’s old charcoal grill, we’re talking about a shiny, bright red, ceramic Kamado Joe. The Classic Joe Grill is built on performance and brings innovative new features to the charcoal grill world. The divide-andconquer multi-level cooking system makes cooking easier and will most likely make your neighbors jealous, especially when you’re grilling a tri-tip seasoned with coffee (yes, coffee). 

This is one you’ll have to try to believe it, as the Black Rifle Coffee takes this tri-tip to another level. The recipe and video will walk you through just how easy it is to become a grill master.
