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
Though Wireless-N (an 802.11n draft standard that offers throughput speeds up to 300Mbps or faster) has been used in home and small-office routers for a long time, routers for outdoor hot spots are still mostly based on the 802.11g standard that caps at 54Mbps. This is primarily because the 802.11n hasn't been ratified yet.
Nonetheless, Wireless-N standard's proven superiority over 802.11g both in throughput and range means hot-spot equipment makers and providers can't ignore it any longer.

We've looked at outdoor kitchen appliances in the past. And now Sikes Cookers & Grills wants a piece of the action, so it's come up with the Chamber, which the company says allows people to use an outdoor cooker the same way they use a kitchen oven.
The Chamber uses three patented, separate sections: a direct side, an indirect side, and a special unique partition. The burners are located on the direct side for traditional grilling, searing, or cooktop use; in this section you can grill a perfect steak or boil a pot of potatoes. The indirect side … Read more
Alltel's acquisition by Verizon Wireless continues to move forward, but that hasn't stopped the regional carrier from rolling out new services and phones. And on Thursday, just in time for holiday play, Alltel launched a new GPS app with Trimble Outdoors.
Trimble Outdoors brings basic GPS services to select Alltel phones, though it appears to be meant more for hikers and mountain bikers rather than drivers. First, you must plan your trip online, but you then can send the routing information including maps and waypoints wirelessly to your phone.
The maps, which come in topographic, street, and aerial … Read more
You're lost in the woods and it's getting darker. Wouldn't it be nice if the two items most essential to you finding your way out before night falls (not counting a GPS unit) were rolled into one convenient little package? Boston-based designer Owen Song has come up with just such a contraption. The Light is a map that can double as a flashlight.
The concept device consists of two sheets of paper, one with a map printed on it, the other a cover sheet with two electrodes on the back. Between the papers is a thin battery … Read more
Here's one way to weather the economic downturn: Stop paying restaurant prices for wood-fired pizza and artisanal bread, and instead invest that money in a Kalamazoo Outdoor Artisan Pizza Oven.

Using your choice of liquid propane or natural gas, the oven heats to temperatures ranging from 250 degrees to 800 degrees Fahrenheit; an integrated wood … Read more
