      Need to do something with the cash coming in from the IPO ;-)


        Interesting. Makes you wonder how or if they will incorporate into their existing technology.


          Good for them, that's how capitalism works! Now I just need to come up with an idea that some big dumb corporation can't live without! If only I weren't so lazy....

            Sometimes you come up with a great idea but make a short-sighted hasty decision regarding it and someone else has a much more lucrative time with it. So there's always that side too....

          Well, I am still pretty unhappy about Trager's WiFi lawsuit, so I probably won't ever buy a Meater product now. I don't think the firm acts in good faith.


            Hahaha, not surprising.

            Anyone else tired of hearing......"Oh, I got a smoker! it's a Traeger.....ever heard of it?"

              I know right? They have them in Costco all the time. So this big, burly looking guy grabs me the other day as I'm walking innocently down the Costco main isle and he starts putting the hard sell on me. Guess he thought I was some newbie instead of the mighty Troutman so I just explained to him the the thermo mass on that tin can couldn't cook all the pork butts and briskets I normally cook on a week end. He just went silent as I made a hasty exit stage left.

              Hahaha, I love doing that.

              Generally, when they ask me, I just say, " Nah, I'm good."


            I’m sure this had nothing to do with all that sweet sweet user data. That or they found out it’s the only cooker that the Meater works more than 3 feet away from.

              That thin metal makes it easy for the signal. LOL

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
