Take your Weber Grill on vacation with you

beach bbqI don’t know why, but one of my favorite things to write about lately seems to be grilling.  I guess it’s just one of my favorite parts of going on vacation.  Think about it, can you really beat anything better then the smell of some delicious meats cooking on the grill with a cold beer in hand (or wine for the ladies)?  I didn’t think so.

I’ve used a lot of grills over the years but Weber always seems to be my grill of choice.  They just seem to be built and designed better IMO.  In addition to this, they also offer just about everything I could ever want when it comes to cooking outside.  Charcoal grill?  No problem.  Gas Grill – natural or propane – no problem.  To top it off, they pack tons of great features into their products..

Apparently I’m on a mission to sell Weber, but here’s some great points on why you should consider Weber for your next grill:

Complete products line (as mentioned above)
Sleek designs
Exceptional warranty – this is one of my favorites many people probably don’t realize – most of the parts are under warranty for a long period of time, probably longer then most people keep them because they appear to be worn out!  Check out Weber Grills on Sale for more details.
Weber Apps – yes, they have a app to help you grill – go figure
Support and assistance - for as long as you own a grill, you can call Weber for help with just about anything.  Another benefit most people probably don’t realize..

All in all, I hope this was helpful, and that maybe you’ll consider getting yourself a Weber grill the next time you’re in need..

Consider The Finer Things..

If you’re thinking about going on vacation, we’d like to suggest you take a vacation fit for a king.  Now it doesn’t have to be crazy expensive – but why not enjoy a little luxury here and there?  Chances are you don’t get to live to luxuriously when you’re home, so if you don’t do it when you go on vacation, when will you?

What makes a luxurious vacation:  This is debatable of course, but we feel you’ll agree with us on most of these points about what makes a great vacation.

412-tropical-waterfall-hd-background-800x600The View:  This is a big one for us – having a spectacular view – something like overlooking a taller waterfall in the middle of a rain forest comes to mind.  That may be a bit extreme, but you get the point.

Fine Dining:  This one you don’t need to be on vacation for, but if you are, it’s a must!  Something that has real table linens like cloth napkins and table cloths.  Not that cheap vinyl crap or complete lack of table covers.

The Service:  For whatever you may be doing, make sure the customer service is top notch. Nothing ruins a vacation faster then rude service people.  Fortunately this is a pretty easy one to spot nowadays with services like yelp being so plentiful.

The Weather:  Depending on what you prefer, make sure the time of year and location is fitting for the weather you like.  Don’t take changes on this – there are places you can go that almost guarantee enjoyable weather.  The saying San Diego weather doesn’t exist because of the random climate changes there (sarcasm) – it exists because generally it’s always a comfortable temperature and sunny.  (a great place to visit if you haven’t yet!)

Masterbuilt 20070910 Review

51WKYHxMbOLThe Masterbuilt 20070910 electric smoker provides individuals with everything they need to get started smoking delicious meats such as turkey, pork, and sausage. With 1.7 cubic feet of storage space, there is ample room for both experts and novices to enjoy the ultimate smokehouse experience. Using a digital display, users can easily change the temperature and set a timer for when the smoking is done. With an intuitive design, the Masterbuilt smoker can even help beginners impress friends with their smoking skills.
Designed for Any Occasion
Whether grilling an entire animal or just a couple of pounds of meat, the Masterbuilt 20070910 has plenty of room to feed the whole family. There are also four smoking racks in the interior to make it easier to arrange the meat before smoking. This means that there is plenty of room to arrange fish, chicken, jerky, venison, and much more. Since the smoking racks can also be removed, there is enough room for large pieces of meat. In some cases, owners can even remove all of the racks to put the entire animal inside. The product is even insulated to make it less costly to smoke meat overnight. Since the Masterbuilt automatically stops when the job is done, users won’t have to worry about overcooking when left on overnight. This means that this product is versatile to make it appropriate for any occasion.
Customizable Smoking
The smoker allows users to add juice, marinade, vinegar, and more to make it easier to customize the final result. Unlike other smokers that force users to add additional flavors separately, this one includes a removable water pan to make customizing the flavor easy. Since not all smoking recipes are the same, the product allows users to dynamically vary the temperature between 100 degrees and 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Combined with flavor enhancements, this provides users with enough flexibility to fine-tune the flavor in the exact way that is desired.

Going on Vacation?  Get in Shape with Clear Muscle

Clear Muscle is a much touted product from Muscle Tech. The manufacturer’s claim that the preparation can offer extraordinary results. In fact, it is a part of their “performance” series of products. With HMB in free acid form as its sole ingredient, and a study conducted by the University of Tampa on the efficacy of this compound which showed astonishing results, the benefits of this preparation simply cannot be faulted.  Check out this muscletech clear muscle review here.  If you intend to use the product, this is what you can expect:

clearmusclamBetter muscle definition: If you have been vying for ripped, hard muscles, but regular supplements are just not doing it for you, you will be stunned by the results of Clear Muscle. The HMB or hydroxy- methylbutyrate in the product delivers nutrition right to the muscle cells, opening up the pathway for protein synthesis. This leads to a conspicuous growth in muscle strength, which can be experienced in the form of extraordinary muscular definition.

Increase in muscle thickness and mass: Clear muscle not only opens up the channels for nutrition to reach the muscular cells, but also it lowers the wear and tear of the tissue, which is only normal after strenuous workouts. In the near absence of proteolysis, what you get is the ideal environment to augment muscle thickness and mass.

Enhanced stamina levels: HMB is known to not only work at the muscular level but also add tremendously to the stamina and endurance of users. You get all the boost you will need to take your workouts to the next level. In fact, the training regimen that is recommended with the product is indeed quite arduous but with this miracle supplement, users have breezed past it.

No muscle fatigue: Since there is very little breakdown of the muscle tissue, you will not feel the fatigue that is linked to heavy weight lifting. A study has proved that when used over the long term, HMB creates an anti-catabolic environment. The result is that most users reported that they felt none of the aches and soreness, which is common with intense workouts.

Grilling on Vacation

Weber 1481001With summer being about halfway over we figured it was time to talk about one of the most important tools of summer: Grills.  Not only are these tools a huge part of summer, but they’re a huge part of vacation.  Nothing beats the smell of your favorite foods being grilled while you’re sipping on your drink of choice during vacation.    Since we’re focused on vacation and summer, we though it’d be a good idea to focus on a quality grill, nothing cheap.  For that reason we’re going to take a look at our favorite charcoal grill, the weber 1481001.  Unlike most charcoal grills, starting this baby is cake – it has a electric/gas ignition system – so you can load it up with charcoal and walk away.  Not only that, but has a storage tank for your charcoal bags so you can keep them close by and dry.  If you find that you’re often grilling for more then just a couple people, no problem – this grill features a large capacity 22.5″ grill top – plenty of room for all your summer favorites.  To make all that space even better, the weber 1481001 was designed with even cooking in mind, so you’ll get good and even heat distribution for even cooking.  If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s having to constantly rotate food to try and get it to cook evenly.

Getting in Shape for Vacation

Going on vacation is suppose to be a time of happiness and joy, but sometimes the thought of putting on a bathing suit can bring just the opposite.  The least I can is tell you you’re not alone, this is a common problem for a lot of people – even though most need not worry!  Unfortunately if you’re not happy with how you look there isn’t a simple solution, there are short cuts though!  Weight loss supplements are now more effective then ever and can make a big difference at helping you get the body you want.  One of the best is called Synedrex by Metabolic Nutrition.  Check out the link to learn more about it and see if it’s right for you.  As always, exercise and proper diet are the best things you can do, but a product like Synedrex can help you get the focus and energy you need.  I would also suggest you start a couple months before vacation, or at least a month –  though I know it can be hard to think that far in advance in today’s busy world!
