Tech You Need for Your Next Summer Barbeque
With summer heating up, so is your grill. No matter where your culinary imagination might take you this season, don’t forget to keep your guests in mind. Every detail from atmosphere to food can play into making for a memorable experience. Before you kick-off the season with a barbeque, make sure you’re prepared with the right tools for success:
Nobody likes grilling in silence. Whether you prefer old-school Bon Jovi or new-wave Luke Bryan, make sure you’re equipped with Bluetooth speakers to create the soundtrack to your summer. Bluetooth capability allows you to keep your hands free of technology so that you can keep them full of basting brushes and tongs instead. Speakers like the Bose Soundlink Revolve deliver crisp, loud sound to your backyard and are built to survive even the harshest bumps, falls, and spills. Worried about the dark clouds rolling in? Pause your music to ask Siri for the weather report with just a click of button. Now the only thing you have to focus on is choosing the right playlist to set the mood.
The Refuel App
You’ve got your meat, your tongs, and your grill but don’t forget the most important piece – fuel. Rather than leaving it up to chance, apps like Refuel help you gauge how much gas is left in your tank from your mobile device. Better yet, you can set up notifications to alert you when your tank is low so you never have to make a last-minute run to fill it up. Spend less time worrying about your grill and more time deciding what side you’ll pair with those tri-tip steaks.
The GrillTime App
There’s no question that the main ingredient in a successful barbeque is the food. From the sides, to the drinks and the meat, your guests are expecting tasty food and good company. Thanks to mobile technology, you can use the resources at your fingertips to ensure you deliver on your promise. Apps like GrillTime walk you through the grilling process so you don’t serve your guests undercooked hamburgers or rubbery steaks. Simply choose your meat, weight, and preferred level of doneness and begin cooking. Best of all, you can enable mobile reminders so that you may mingle with your guests and only return to the grill when needed. Now you can be a great host and grill master.
Hosting a barbeque doesn’t have to be stressful. Rather than harping on the small details, invite technology to do the work for you so you can enjoy the food, drinks, and music as much as your guests.
