Fire up the party -- it's summer, and nothing smells and tastes like the season more than a BBQ. Here are four high tech gadgets to celebrate the occasion.
First, you need a grill -- and the Grill2Go Ice Realtree Portable Gas Grill is not just a cooking machine, it also has a cooler combo and folds down for easy transportation, making it great for the backyard, tailgating and camping.
The $199.99 grill folds down to 22 inches above the two 30-quart camouflage coolers and is also stationed on wheels that allows you to maneuver around using the adjustable handle.
The "Tru-infared" cooking system locks in juices and seals in flavor with no exposed flames, for safer grilling. Slap on the burgers and hot dogs, there's a 290 sq. inch porcelain-coated grilling surface that allows you to add wood chips directly through the cooking grates for a smoky flavor.
Ensure your food is perfectly cooked by pairing up with the iGrill, a wireless cooking thermometer for your iPhone, iPad and iPod. The gadget will help you multitask between the BBQ or oven and guests and other preparations.
First, download the Free iGrill app, and connect to the $79.99 device via Bluetooth, which will allow you to monitor your food from 200 feet away.
Timing is everything, and iGrill will alert you to the cooking time remaining so you can start cooking your veggies, set the table, and accurately answer your family's oft-asked question: "When's dinner going to be ready?"
iGrill includes also includes recipes, and multiple probe support, because often times people like their steaks cooked differently.
You'll be the most popular guest at the party with the Opena case on your smartphone -- it's a stainless steel bottle opener. The $39.99 white or black case comes with a slide out opener on the backside of your phone, not only protecting your gadget, but saving the party.
Here's how it works:
