Picture Yourself Here

You've got shrimp on the barbie but you can't be bothered with watching it cook. Oprah's on. The cell phone's ringing. One cat is on the dining room table and the other's struck in the garbage disposal. There's a kid at the door selling cookies and another behind her waiting for a donation to Save the Ferrets.

Walk outside to check the grill? Pish Posh. Surely such a burden stretches the boundaries of modern living. Surely your Wolf and your Weber don't merit constant attention! Who among us has the time or inclination to stand next to dinner while it cooks? The entire process of opening the door, stepping through it, closing it again behind you, and trudging across the redwood deck to the grill seems daunting. Yet, you can't bear the thought of overcooked Angus.

What to do? What to do?

In a Perfect World

In a perfect world you wouldn't be tethered to the gas grill. It's like watching paint dry, except the paint is meat and it's cooking instead of drying. Well, it could be drying out if it's cheap meat.

Anyway, modern life is simply too stressful. What you need is a device that permits you to roam free while keeping digital tabs on the roasting animal flesh.

If only some uber-smart engineer would devise a wireless grillmaster watchdog.

This hub is in the Google top 10 for TEN of eleven keywords, but it still only has 36 hits over it's measly life. There's a lesson in there somewhere. Perhaps grill aficionados don't have wireless internet access on the deck?
