National Dadgum That's Good Day
annually on March 1st (since 2016)
Masterbuilt Manufacturing LLC in April 2015
National Dadgum That's Good Day is dedicated to delicious meals and time spent with loved ones—things that are both "Dadgum good!" "Dadgum, that's good!" is a southern phrase, and also the title of John McLemore's cookbook series. McLemore and his family are behind Masterbuilt, a cooking products company based in Columbus, Georgia, that manufactures products like fryers, smokers, and grills. John's father, Dawson McLemore, started the company in 1973, with his young son by his side. They started by building fern stands, but things really took off when they switched to fish cookers, and the company kept expanding from there. In 2015, they created National Dadgum That's Good Day to celebrate an appreciation for good food and company.
