Looftlighter Charcoal Lighter Review

I have a lot of grilling gadgets, so for me to say that the Looftlighter electric charcoal lighter is my favorite gadget purchase in the last 2 years is saying something. Go back any further than that and I would have to count my Big Steel Keg in what would be a close race for…

Thermapen Mk4 Meat Thermometer Review

Thermapen Mk4 Meat Thermometer Review

  Did da Vinci feel the need to create a blonde Mona Lisa? Did Vince Gilligan think he needed to make ‘Breaking Badder’? No! They didn’t, because they knew they created masterpieces! So why would the temperature measuring gurus from Thermoworks think they needed to make the Thermapen MK4 when they already had a meat…

Thermoworks ChefAlarm Probe Thermometer Review

Thermoworks takes the guess work out of cooking, baking and grilling with their amazingly fast and accurate Thermapen.

My Favorite Discontinued Charcoal Grill, The Bubba Keg

My Favorite Discontinued Charcoal Grill, The Bubba Keg

Cooks like a ceramic Big Green Egg, but is built for portability? Where can I get one of these things?  Bummer, you can’t, someone decided it wasn’t a good product but I beg to differ.  As you could imagine, I have quite the collection of grills in my garage and on my patio. So many,…

Weber Smokey Joe Review

Weber Smokey Joe Review

“Awe, it’s so cute!” At first I was a little offended for this grill, since that was the first reaction from my wife. “Cute” isn’t something that comes to mind when I think of a tool that is built to fullfill one of our most primitive needs; to cook over an open flame. But she’s…
