Thermoworks Smoke Review

I had the chance to review the Thermoworks ThermaQ WIFI a few weeks back. I forgot to mention that buried deeper in my box of goodies was a Thermoworks Smoke remote meat thermometer as well! Two remote thermometers? What’s the difference and why do I need two? I have now run both through a few…

It was like Christmas in February when I came home to a box on the doorstep with the ThermoWorks logo. I know something really cool (for an gadget-obsessed grilling fanatic) is hiding inside the cardboard.

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,…
