Grilling

Although barbecuing can be fun, the person doing the grilling is usually stuck having to hover around the barbecue, checking the meat and adjusting the cooking temperature accordingly. BBQ Guru is attempting to change that situation, with its new CyberQ Wi-Fi. Using included probes, the system monitors the temperature of the barbecue itself and up to three pieces of meat that are cooking within it, then sends that data to the backyard chef via their mobile device or PC – they can then remotely adjust the barbecue’s settings as needed.

That's where gas pulls off the come-from-behind victory handily. The Grillcube levels the charcoal v. gas playing field by taking away some of the hassle and uncertainty. Read More

May 11, 2007 We’re not quite sure what it is about barbeques, but we’ve seen our share of innovative outdoor cooking appliances in recent times. First there was the 345 horsepower, 5.7-liter HEMI V8 barbeque, then the Powerblock V8 BBQ that brands the food it cooks with the logo of your choice and then GarageWorks’ concept tailgating appliance that cooks, cools, warms and stores.
