A chef friend recently discussed the importance of his knife roll and how those tools shape how he works in the kitchen. I do a lot of cooking and cooking reviews and figured I needed to work on my knife roll. It just so happened I had the opportunity to review the Vosteed Grandknife minibarbar.
Indoor/Outdoor Cooking Grills and Accessories
Anytime I can find an excuse to cook, I jump on it. Recently, I was able to try out the Dreo ChefMaker. Sure, we have all seen the next big thing in cooking, so how good can it possibly be? Well, I gave it a try, and let me tell you, I was impressed! Let’s take a look.
It is finally grill season, and I’m pretty stoked; there’s nothing better than a freshly grilled chicken breast with a salad, some veggies, and a few cold beers. But keeping that chicken juicy shouldn’t require a Ph.D. in grilling. Thanks to the ThermoWorks Thermapen ONE, you can cook like a pro and — for the next week —save some cash.
Anyone can smoke meat slow and low, but not all meats come out the same. The best pitmasters have their own secret methods of making juicy meats; often, a great spritz is the key to success. Three pre-made Meat Sweats BBQ Spritz flavors are available to help you achieve a big smokey bark that will impress the pickiest BBQ critics.
If home is an apartment where the use of open-flame grills is banned on patios and balconies, you can still enjoy cooking outside with the Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill. Billed as a portable and compact electric cooker, the Ninja Woodfire’s primary function is grilling; however, it’s also a wood-infused BBQ smoker, air fryer, and outdoor convection oven that can bake, roast, broil, and even dehydrate. If the Ninja Woodfire actually delivers an enjoyable outdoor cooking experience anywhere with electrical power, then I can think of quite a few other uses for it, too. Let’s take a look.
We have done a lot of cooking on Gear Diary, but we rarely have used charcoal. Sometimes burgers are just better cooked over some hot coals. Last night I fired up the grill using The Good Charcoal Company’s Premium Hardwood Lump Charcoal for the first time. How did The Good Charcoal perform?
We are deep into BBQ season as well as camping season. My family loves to take the camper out, spend a weekend relaxing, and let me cook for them. Taking a pellet smoker on the road wasn’t an easy task until I tried out the ZGrills Cruiser 200A portable pellet grill.
One of the most underrated kitchen tools is often the knife. Quality knives make so many tasks better while cooking. I prefer an all-around style knife that can slice, dice, chop and cut anything we plan to cook; the 8″ Vosteed Morgan Chef’s Knife has proven to be the workhouse I have been looking for.
BBQ season is finally upon us, and the perfect place to find everything for your outdoor cooking needs is the BBQGuys site. They have everything from grills and smokers to the necessary accessories to make your cooks successful. BBQGuys even has its own line of cookers, including the Victory Pellet Grill that we’ll be looking at today. The Victory Pellet Grill is a 35″ wood pellet grill with a 29-pound hopper. This thing is huge and rugged, and it comes with some excellent features for an affordable price. Let’s dive in!

The most important part of smoking meats and outdoor cooking is temperature. Many people ask how long something takes, and my answer is always, “What temp does that food needs to be?” With that said, a tool that monitors those temps is essential; if you can make that tool completely wireless, then you have something special. The MeatStick Wireless Meat Thermometer is just that, a wireless probe that works flawlessly.
There are times when you want to keep an eye on your food, but you’ve got a ton of other stuff going on. Maybe you’re cooking a side dish or playing with your kids. That’s where the Yummly Smart Thermometer comes into play; it takes all the guesswork out of cooking, and it retails for $129.99.
I do love some BBQ gear and spend a lot of time on the smoker. The vast majority of items I smoke are done by temperature and not time. With that said, especially when in BBQ competition cookoffs, getting temp readings that are accurate and getting them fast are imperative. The ThermoWorks Thermapen ONE promises to give these readings in one second.
Weber is known for high-quality gas grills, and its newest entry into the market is no exception. Following smart home trends, Weber has released their first line of smart grills, and we’re happy to report that the Weber Spirit SX-315 Smart Grill is what you’d expect from Weber, given their reputation. Weber’s line of smart gas grills starts at $849.
It is no secret that I love to cook meats. Smoking and grilling are some of my favorite hobbies and one of the few that I would admit I am pretty good at. So when offered, I jumped at the chance to try out the Meat District Ultimate Grilling Pack. The meats come seasoned and frozen, delivered right to your door.
There are many options to order products online, but if you are conscious of how your products are produced, it is often hard to tell where to turn. Enter Thrive Market, which delivers organic products at fair prices right to your home. With 25-50 percent savings off retail pricing, the average savings for each order is $32.
Even though I smoke meats year-round, summer is especially busy in my pits. I have used the FireBoard for a good while and was just given the opportunity to try out the FireBoard 2. Since temps are the key to great smoked meat, the FireBoard 2 brings a smart way to impress your friends at your next BBQ.
