    Dates on Reviews on the Free Site

    Max Good just a suggestion to move the published and revised dates on your reviews to the top of each review. You have to scroll almost all the way to the bottom to see when the review was published, and any revision date. Kind of helps with context. Thxs.

    Good point.

    For example, the Grilla and Silverbac now have WiFi but the Silverbac review which refers to no WiFi hasn’t been updated. The last update for the Silverbac was 3/18/21 which is before the release of WiFi. So, an eagle-eyed reader would be “ok fine” and maybe check the Grilla website for new info, but others might be like “No WiFi” and move on.

    Personally I think it makes sense to do more reviews like the SmokeFire where it was a blog like updates so maybe just insert a note at the top of the review indicating WiFi is available and the review will be revised, until the rest of the review can be revised and updated.


      Time and tide wait for no man, woman, or binary.
      Neither does upgrades, new products in the ever-expanding world of BBQ.


        I agree with this....this caused me some confusion when I was recently researching pellet grills. (And I hadn't noticed that the published and last modified dates were indeed at the very bottom.)

        What also might be helpful is a revision history, so we know what has changed. Something like this:

        10/15/2019: Legs are now made of aluminum and not anodized steel.
        4/12/2017: Reworded paragraph on the deflector plate to better describe the airflow around it.
        8/20/2015: Corrected a few minor typos.
        3/2/2015: Original published review date.

          Aircraft-grade, of course. It's all the rage now.

        Good points. I'll discuss this with the crew.

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

        Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

        Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

        Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
        Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. 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.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
