Before you fire up the grill this summer, be sure you have everything you need! We don’t just mean the meat and a cold beverage, we are talking about all the tech that makes a summer barbecue a real celebration. We have come up with a list of 5 things that you cannot go without.
To really turn up the heat at this summers barbecue you need a grill and of course some great music! The Auvio Bluetooth Portable Speaker will allow your guests to listen to music without being tied to an outlet. It plays up to 6 hours of music on a single charge, plus it doubles as a speakerphone to take calls handsfree. It will take the family barbecue up a notch this summer!
So now you have the speaker, but where are you going to get those tunes from? The Apple iPod touch is a perfect place to store all your favorite tunes. You can create a playlist perfect for your barbecue or stream music online from Songza or Spotify.
The scene has been set for your awesome barbecue, but now it’s time to turn up the fire on the grill! Remove the worry of waiting around the grill to find out when the steak is cooked by using the Oregon Scientific AW129 BBQ Thermometer. This wireless thermometer will let you know when the meat has reached the right temperature, even if you are inside. No matter what you are eating it includes programs for lamb, veal, pork, turkey, beef, chicken and fish.
Needs some ideas for what to put on the grill? Download the Grill-it! app for TONS of good recommendations. Grill-it! lets you search based on what you are putting on the grill, whether it’s pork, seafood or vegetables. It is available on iTunes and Google Play.
You have created such an incredible barbecue that you MUST capture some of the great moments. The Polaroid 300 Instant Camera is perfect for that and gives the kids a fun activity for the day. There’s still something exciting about getting an instant print of your photo.
