Grilling with Smart-tech Equipment

Smart technology makes its way to outdoor barbecue spaces and US-based thermometer manufacturer MEATER has introduced a state-of-the-art smart tech meat thermometer that comes with a stand-up container and charger made with sustainable bamboo. This new smart thermometer is called MEATER Block and it is connected via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to an app that is downloaded on the mobile phone, where grilling is controlled with an Advanced Estimator Algorithm that estimates how long to cook and rest your food to help plan meals and manage time.

MEATER also supports the environment, with a press release this April 2021 from the company that shared how the manufacturer aids in reducing carbon footprint through their partnership with UK-based company Ecologi, which aids in funding climate projects.

Brick and Concrete Wood-fired Pizza Ovens

Italian brand Palazzetti is once again promoting their wood-fired ovens in their latest article in their online magazine, The Warm Street Journal, which gives tips on how to install one at home. One of their highlighted barbecue ranges is called Gargano 3, made with a concrete brick refractory material that can be easily installed and situated in any garden or outdoor space. The Gargano 3 guarantees multiple grilling and baking functions and delivers balanced cooking for roasts and pizzas. It has a metal underhood guard and a reinforced hearth with a double back wall that protects it integrally. Its worktop is polished in Marmotech with red granite finish and it has refractory fireplaces, an insulating mat, and a 76 m firewood holder. A stainless steel bio grill completes the whole charcoal barbecue set-up that provides a 2-in-one solution for grilling meat on the grill and baking pizza at the same time.

Sleek and Modern Inox Barbecue Range from Fesfoc

Spanish firm Fesfoc is also on the grill radar for the best modern barbecue range that not only impresses visually but delivers a pack with its impressive cooking performance. The Krakatoa Elite Elegance barbecue range is Fesfoc’s showcase this summer which incorporates 2 independent molten grills made with stainless steel.
