On any given day, you’ll find Aaron Dynes grilling with friends.
"Anywhere from five to seven times a week depending upon, you know, the weather," says Dynes.
But sometimes, even grilling masters need a little high-tech help! Dan Ackerman with CNET.com says the latest crop of grilling gadgets is sure to add flavor to your next outdoor soiree.
"Most of them are pretty simple,” says Ackerman. “Just set them up once and then you're good to go!"Starting with Cuisinart’s CGG-240 portable roll-away gas grill for $229.99.
"It has a built in stand that folds down, and then you can just wheel the entire thing away. You can roll it down the street, or you can put it in the back of the car," explains Ackerman.
When things start to sizzle, keep the cook cool with the Sharper Image Barbecue Grill Light and Fan for $59.99.
"The fans take the smoke and heat and move them away from you so that you can stand there right in front of the grill, and it's a lot more comfortable," says Ackerman.
Dynes lights up his barbecue spread with Man Law’s Twist Flashlight starting at $35. It’s battery-free and magnetic.
"I liked that you could attach and detach it from the tripod, so it could be used not only for grilling, but for a variety of other things," says Dynes.
"You just plunge it right into whatever you're cooking, and you have a little receiver you take with you," explains Ackerman.
"You slip in a bottle of wine, or a bottle of beer, or a soda can, a little bit of water, a little bit of ice. Plug it in and hit start, and it will cool it down in three or four or five minutes," says Ackerman.
"You can even put your iPhone or your iPod inside in a waterproof case and just toss it in the pool. It will actually float," suggests Ackerman.
