Bear Mountain Smoking Pellets and Smoke

This product was recommended by Tracy Chester from Bear Mountain BBQ

Bear Mountain creates high quality, natural hardwood pellets curated to create gourmet wood-fired flavor to take the grilling experience to a whole new level. By adding wood pellets to the grill – gas, charcoal, electric and of course, pellet – you can use your own equipment to create the irresistible flavors and aromas that come from hardwood. Bear Mountain uses 100% real hardwoods, with no flavorings, fillings, additives or bark, creating blends that give grill masters and gourmands an alternative to artificial smoke flavors.

VSSL Camp Supplies

This product was recommended by Mark Wilcox from Camping Forge

My new favorite outdoor piece of gear is the VSSL Camp Supplies Kit. It’s a lightweight cylinder made of aircraft-grade aluminum that contains 70 essential items for survival. What I like the most abut VSSL is that it comes with a functional LED light and an actual working compass. Most of these portable survival kits don’t have useful lights or compasses.

This product was recommended by Peck Morr from Imalent Flashlight

Imalent MR90 is a powerful dual-model tactical flashlight with two cooling fans, and capable of both flood and throw light with up to 50,000 lm output. It’s not a flashlight like any other flashlights with a different number of emitters. The MR90 has a different approach with 8*CREE XHP70.2 for extreme output, and 1 Luminus SBT90.2 LED at the center for throw. It’s the perfect torch for search and rescue missions, and the go to flashlight if you need to illuminate a large area in the wild. The strobe mode gives this flashlight the power for self-defense as well.
