2017 Crave Grill Guide and Reviews

by Steven Doyle

Grilling season is in full swing and it is time you thought about tossing out the old rusty model you have been clinging to for so many years. We have a little guidance in selecting a new model that will not only impress your neighbors, but ease you through many summers ahead.

Lump charcoal burns hot, and with some brands your grill can reach over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Perfect for grilling steaks. You just can’t get this kind of heat out of briquettes. Plus there is very little waste cleanup with natural charcoal.          Continue reading

Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, invited about 100,000 people to his back yard in Palo Alto, California for a BBQ. You were invited if you happened to be on Facebook Sunday afternoon.

The BBQ was virtual, but a bit entertaining none the less. There were at least a few people extremely excited to see Mark’s live feed on Facebook. Namely the brands of grills and smokers he uses on a regular basis who got a huge plug, and a certain BBQ Sauce brand that will no doubt be emptied from shelves across the county, and ordered from around the world.   Continue reading

Grilling Properly With Doug Pickering

DSC01825by Steven Doyle

Last evening pitmaster Doug Pickering invited a group of guests into his Highland Park home for his very first bbq class. You recall Pickering from his stint at WORK. He appeared to be an overnight sensation, but has worked years at his craft perfecting his delicious take on ‘cue. Last evening Doug was joined by his long time friend and chef Scott Townend, formerly at Village Kitchen, but has a glorious resume working with some of the best chefs this country has to offer. What a delight to work hands on with these two talents. The pair have been collaborating on catering as of late, and have been invited into some pretty amazing homes recently to perform their duties in a big way.    Continue reading
