The iPad - Kitchen Companion

First Image
In a way this is a sequel to my earlier blog: the iPhone Barbecue Buddy. When the iPad came out little over two years ago, I immediately saw its potential. Granted at that time there weren't a lot of applications available for it, but you could see it was essentially a blank slate that creative people could design exciting new apps for. While I could see the potential for the iPad, what I couldn't see was the money to buy my own. So reluctantly I sat on the sidelines and watched with great interest as the iPad grew into a more & more sophisticated device. it grew both in terms of hardware and software. Where once it was a content consumption device, the iPad and now create content as well. This blog will talk about some of the uses I've found for my iPad in the kitchen where it is a truly useful device. Read More...

Just Say No to ImageShack

First Image
This blog is a heads up about what is IMHO some simply awful customer service exhibited by the ImageShack image hosting service. I usually try to keep these blog entries related to food, but I’ve made exceptions in the past (NAME GAMES - JUST SAY NO TO GO DADDY) when I run into truly bad customer service in a computer or website related area. Many of the folks visiting this site are like minded folks who are into grilling, smoking, food photography etc. You may post some of your own images to messages boards and like me use an image hosting service such as ImageShack to host your images. The point of this blog is to tell you of my recent experience with ImageShack. Also I would suggest you should possibly NOT choose them if you are looking for a new image hosting service. Lastly if you already use them you should plan ahead for your future and what you should do if you run into the retroactive 500 image limit they are suddenly imposing. This blog entry will describe the rather poor customer service choices made by ImageShack recently where in effect they hi-jacked my images. Read More...

Lights, Camera, Action!!

In my month away from the grill, I did have spare time were I could spend some time working on this site. This month marks the 6th anniversary of the launch of this site. When the site had it's 3rd anniversary, I posted a movie chronicling the my first three years of grilling and smoking as pictured on this site. With another 3 years passing I'd been thinking of possibly making another movie showing the last 3 years worth of output. Until very recently several problems seemed like they would prevent me from adding more movies to the site. This blog entry will cover the new movies and the process behind their creation.
