    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 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.
