As the weather warms up, it's time to get a move on. Spring has sprung, the baseball season is about to get underway, and everywhere people are going to be spending more time outside. Those people are going to be hungry. Nothing beats spending a warm afternoon surrounded by fresh air and the sweet smell of grilled meats and vegetables. This year, plan on taking your grilling show on the road and really perk up your picnics.
Spring has almost sprung, and soon we will all be spending a great deal more time outside. If it's finally time to replace your aged and rusted grill, maybe you should try something new this grilling season. The Grill Dome is a ceramic grill based on an Indian tandoor clay oven. It is available in three sizes, with the largest and newest Infinity Seriescoming out this month.
There is nothing quite like grilling food over an open flame, using all that deep smoke to impart flavor. As fat melts away, smoke and heat combine to form delicious flavor that cannot be achieved in any other way. For charcoal fires, the solution is easy: soak some wood chips in water and then place on the burning coals. However, for those with a gas grill, getting that smoky goodness is not as easy.
Luckily, there is the Charcoal Companion Platinum Grid with Smoker Trays Set for people with gas grills. Simply fill the adjustable smoking chambers with wood chips … Read more
Super Bowl week continues, and whether or not you watch the game for the commercials or the actual game, most likely you will tune in. Even more likely is that you will find yourself in a room full of different snacks and treats of varying degrees of healthiness. My advice is to steer clear of the chopped celery, carrots and cauliflower (those will just get smothered in a dressing anyways) and go for the good stuff. Chances are pretty good that somewhere on the spread is a pile of chicken wings.
The perennial football favorite, chicken wings are personal, portable, … Read more
Coffee is an essential ingredient to life as we know it. Maybe not chemically speaking (at least until our next stage of evolution, that is), but it is definitely essential for our social interactions. If you are not a coffee drinker and you guffaw at that remark, just imagine if for one day all the coffee in the world disappeared. You might not feel any ill effects, but most of those around you certainly would. And they would let you know it.
In case you are not sure what I am talking about, I should let you know I ran … Read more

If you've ever had beer can chicken you know how good it can be. Normally made on the grill, the chicken literally rests on top of an open beer can. The steam generated by the heated beer flavors and moistens the chicken, while the fat drips off. Your guests gather round and watch as the whole contraption cooks away. So, it's dinner and a show.
For those times when the whole can process seems like too much, there's an alternative. This deep-dish chicken cooker replicates the method, albeit not the experience. Sometimes the simple and easy way … Read more
Wellbas is touting their water-cooled barbecue system as a new way to keep meat tender, juicy, and healthy. "In this system, water circulates through inside of grid grate and it regulates the temperature of grid, preventing charring meat on the grill." While you may share my hesitation with such a bold antichar statement, it should be noted that over charring food can create carcinogenic compounds. Add that to the fact that, according to Wellbas, overall fat is minimized by allowing it to escape through the uncharred food and it become clear that there is some serious reasoning behind … Read more

When summer rolls around, it's time to gas up the boat, blow up the inner tubes, and head for the lake. In the old days if you wanted to combine your nautical adventures with your culinary ones, you were forced to lug your hibachi onto your boat and hope that you didn't hit a rough wake sending burning coals everywhere. Weekend warriors around the world longed for someone to step up to the plate and combine their two loves: boats and cooking raw meat.
Someone has finally come through for all of us and invented the BBQ Donut, … Read more
