Bison Airlighter Lights Fires at 2600 Degrees

Posted in Grilling by Darrin Olson on May 8th, 2014

Bison AirlighterA gas lighter is almost a must these days for even somewhat frequent grilling or hanging out around the firepit, but even then fires can still put up some resistance. Enter the Bison Airlighter: a butane gas powered lighter that puts out 2600 degrees to start your flames without kindling or paper in under a minute.

In addition to the extreme flame, and not unlike the Looflighter we saw a few years back, the Airlighter blows air with a built in fan to oxygenate your fire and get it going faster. Bison even included a front-facing flashlight and a bottle opener on the bottom.

The lighter is refillable with a standard butane canister and the batteries for the fan can be recharged through a USB port. It appears that the lighter is not quite ready for the retail market but you can …

Mario Mushroom Barbecue Grill

Posted in Grilling by Conner Flynn on June 11th, 2010

When barbecuing with Peach, Bowser and the rest of the gang, a plain old grill just won’t do. But this Mushroom grill is perfect for cooking up some Yoshi burgers. It was created by Greg Mata, who dubs it the Grilltendo.

Greg had to use special paints to make sure it would stand up to the heat. Hopefully whatever he cooks with it makes you larger or lets you shoot fireballs. It’s much better than your old rusty grill.

George Foreman iGrill

Posted in Grilling,iPod by Darrin Olson on May 18th, 2007

George Foreman iGrillWe’ve seen all kinds of accessories and products latched onto the iPod bandwagon over the past months so I wasn’t surprised to see an iGrill in my inbox; it was just a matter of time. What I was surprised to see was the legendary George Foreman getting into the mix with his lean, mean i-grilling machine, hence the George Foreman iGrill.

This iGrill works similar to the other grills in the George Foreman line with the electrical non-stick griddle, and can be used indoors or outdoors providing a relatively large 200 square inches of grilling surface. “Why the iGrill?”, you might ask. Well, the iGrill has a 10 watt speaker built into it and can play your iPod via a line-in jack. In fact it play music from just about any MP3 player that you connect to it.

We are totally sold on the idea …

This thermometer from Oregon Scientific consists of a digital wireless remote to configure and view the temperature, and a wireless probe that works up to 330 feet away from the hand-held remote. The remote will obviously display the temperature, and you can set it with some common pre-configured entree’s combined with the “doneness” you desire to have the remote calculate the correct desired temp alert you when your food is ready.

Pre-programmed into the BBQ gadget are multiple types of meats such as beef, lamb, pork and chicken as well as fish, and a little picture on the display lets you know which one you’ve selected to avoid any confusion. The device will “speak” the …
