    Fly-by-Wire Grilling

    http://www.lynxgrills.com/smart-grill.asp

    The very latest in grilling technology. Yes, it's cool but it kinda takes something away from the grilling experience IMHO. I still want to have some control of the grilling process and an excuse to have cold beers while tending the hot grill. I'll stick with my Thermapen as the only electronic aide I use while grilling.

    Interesting. I'll wait for the version that generates food from thin air.

    Tech analyst for CBS, Larry Magid, does a brief daily afternoon segment on the local radio affiliate. He was talking about either this grill or a similar 'connected grill' yesterday. If memory serves me true, the price he stated was $6 to $8 THOUSAND!!!!

    I'm such a Luddite. I still use a charcoal grill.

    Re: Fly-by-Wire Grilling

    I'd love it just for the ability to turn it on and off from inside. Going outside in 10 degree weather to preheat the grill stinks.

    I hear ya Richard. While I do have gas grills, I also have a dedicated offset wood-burning smoker (a.k.a., stick burner) that I use primarily for briskets, pulled pork, and ribs. The main section (big drum) can also be used as a charcoal grill. Yes, it's a bit of effort, but again- provides more excuses for those cold beers

    Agreed. I have a 32" gas grill who's main job is to hold extra grates for my primo oval XL.

    Re: Fly-by-Wire Grilling

    Yep, my charcoal grill (big steel keg) is for when I'm feeling lazy. The stick burner just makes everything better!

    I have a hard time believing that auto-cooking thingimajig will work well.

    Had a gas grill for years, then got rid of it during my last move. Charcoal ever since and love it.

    I'll try a Primo some day...

    A few moves ago, we found ourselves without a big ol' grill and didn't want to purchase one until the outdoor kitchen went in. I bought a cheap charcoal grill. Fast forward 4 years, and I'm still using charcoal...albeit I've upgraded to a Weber kettle. Charcoal makes food taste so much better, I cannot imagine going back.

    I cheated and the last grill I bought is a combo gas/charcoal grill.

    Jay, I also have a Weber kettle grill and wouldn't be without it. I've had it for 12 years now. Hard to find a better charcoal grill IMO.

    With current high beef prices, this would indeed be nice.
