Grilling season is fully underway, and each year we try to shed a little more light on the subject talking about recipes, techniques or hardware. This year, with the 4th of July looming, we thought we'd trot out some of the newest gadgets to help you through your barbecue sessions. Oddly enough, one place you can find the latest in grilling equipment is Best Buy, which has teamed up with cooking.com to get into the gadget business. Check out their website at kitchen.bestbuy.com.
Here are four gadgets we like a lot:
1. Meat Thermometer with iPhone app. This probe is attached to a device that can link wirelessly to your iPhone. You tell the machine what kind of meat you're cooking, what its weight is, and how done you want it. Insert the probe, and when it hits the mark, it calls your iPhone to let you know to come and get it. About $80.
2. Guy Fieri Smoker Box. A very simple, yet useful gadget to contain your favorite wood chips, especially in a gas grill. (Check out the link at kitchen.bestbuy.com/smokerbox) About $15.
3. Weber night time grilling light. This extremely useful gadget clamps on to your grill, and with a flip of the switch, illuminates the theater of operations. (Check out the link at kitchen.bestbuy.com/weberlight) Around $30.
4. Weber Baby Q100 Portable Gas Grill for tailgating. This compact grill works off of small propane canisters, and with its 189 square inch cooking surface, can handle a lot of burgers. (Check out the link at kitchen.bestbuy.com/webergasgrill) About $150.
