Is it just me?

Is it just me or is this just wrong?

My wife's nephew sent me an e-mail telling me he's going to get one of those things for his 2 barrel smoker. His plan is to control and monitor his meat from work via his blackberry. It's a special little fan with LEDs, temperature gauges, and a built in web page server so you can monitor your BBQ remotely. It all just seems so CALIFORNIA. Like Nancy Pelosi's idea of how to BBQ. Does your smoker really need an IP address??? I'm sorry, but I think you have to stand there, in the smoke, monitoring your fire, IN PERSON, preferably while drinking beer, for it to be a real barbecue. Barbecue is NOT something you are supposed to do by Twitter. At least that's my opinion. What do you think?


  1. Yes, you should smell like smoke when you're done barbequeing.

  2. In a perfect world (like yours) I would agree. Keep in mind that not all of us have a sugar mama! But that doesn't mean we don't love us some BBQ!
