Summer Is Having An RC Amphibious Vehicle That Brings You Beer


What kind of summer is it when you’re forced to actually move? You’re basking in the sun, and while having suds at your disposal is always great, having to get up to get them isn’t. But if you’re equipped with the Electric Amphibious Vehicle by Frontgate, you can always retrieve more bottles without having to do much of anything. There’s room for 4 drinks, as well as a center mounted water cannon should anyone try to take them from you while in transit. Granted, you’re going to need another person to reload it for you, but that’s what friends are for, isn’t it?

It’s $99.

WalkBag is a Bag and Beach Towel in One


Summer is fast approaching. Whether it’s a trip to the beach, a picnic, or even a camping trip, it’s time to get your gear ready for whatever activities you’ve got lined up. You should add the WalkBag to your list. It’s a bag that’s also a towel at the same time, so you can use it to carry your essentials and whatever stuff you need.

When you’ve found the perfect spot, just empty it and pull it inside out to transform it into a beach towel or picnic blanket. It also has a sleeve on one end where you can insert an inflatable or makeshift pillow for added comfort.

Ultrasound Device Checks Your Propane Levels


If you’re enjoying the summer, there is a chance you’re using the inferior BBQing method known as the propane grill. Aside from it being a well known fact that cooking with propane is inferior to charcoal, you also have to deal with fill levels on your tank. How do you know it’s empty? You can knock on it, shake it, or lift it… all in an effort to figure out how much is left. Or, you can spend $90 and get the Truma LevelCheck. It’s a dead simple device that uses ultrasounds to check for liquids. Press it against the side of the tank, and an LED will tell you what’s on the other side: green means liquid, red, no liquid.

Tactical Apron Should Satisfy The Warrior Griller


With BBQ season in full swing, we’ve had no shortage of BBQ-related items to report on lately. Add the above Tactical Apron to that list. Looking a lot like a long bullet-proof vest, it’s covered in a real MOLLE System, as used in the Army. This allows for the attachment of various MOLLE-compatible pouches and accessories, which in this case is going to be spatulas, tongs, and knives. It comes with 2 large pouches and 3 smaller pouches in which you can store salt and pepper shakers, or your phone. Whatever you need to do your job on the grill, you can store it on the Tactical Apron. It’s a pretty badass purchase, and at all of $35, is worth every penny.

S’More To Love Metal Tray For Making, Well, S’Mores


The arrival of the summer isn’t a short-lived affair where one moment it’s winter, the next it’s summer, and everyone moves on. For the colder climates, it’s a drawn out period during which you appreciate the long awaited thawing out and celebrate all things summer, all the time. For example, we’re going to get all excited over stuff like the above S’More To Love metal tray for making everyone’s favorite campfire treat, the good ole S’More. The tray locks in the Graham biscuits, the marshmallow, and the chocolate, six S’Mores at a time, so that you can just place them all at once over your fire (or in the oven) and be efficient about your cooking. After all these treats are great when you’re actually eating them, not when you’re crying about how they fell into the fire and now you have to start all over again.

It’s $15.

Deck Yourself Out For BBQ Season With These Grillin Villain Aprons


In the typically colder climates, we’re reaching the time of year where patios are being cleaned and prepped, decks are being washed and the grilling machines are being brought out from the shed. If you’re going to stand in front of the BBQ flame, you’re going to want to wear an apron. Why not take the opportunity to make it a remarkable one? The Grillin Villain Aprons feature Boba Fett, Stormtrooper, Batman characters, & more. With prices ranging from $40 to $160, they’re not exactly cheap, but they’ll sure get your guests talking at your next party.

Making Stuffed Burger Patties Just Got A Whole Lot Easier


A burger is a burger until it gets stuffed with some surprise or other: then it’s a ‘Better Burger’. We’re thinking cheese, bacon, cheesy bacon, or bacony cheese. Whatever your flavor of cheesy bacon stuffing, the Sur La Table® Stuff-A-Burger™ Press will help you form your patties with much less effort that if you were to go about it with your bare hands. It features special presses that help create a space for your stuffings, and make it a breeze to encapsulate them. “It offers two stuffed-burger sizes: a mammoth ¾-pound burger or, using the insert, a substantial ½ pounder.” And that could just be the best $13 you’ve spent for the upcoming BBQ season.

LoungePac Chair Is For Professional Beach Bums Only


Summer is on everyone’s mind these days, and that means trips to the beach are on the horizon. You can either go there like an amateur, with… a towel. Or you can gear up and bring the LoungePac Chair. When folded up, the 10kg (22lbs) chair is not much larger than a carry on bag, measuring 32″Lx25″Wx12″H. Once unfurled, ten seconds after you reach, you have got an adjustable umbrella, two large thermal Coolers with cupholders (coolers can hold wine bottles), and a removable tote bag. Even the leg support is removable if you fancy having your toes in the sand.

Versatility at the beach doesn’t come cheap, though: $259.

The Grillbot Is A Grill Cleaning Robot


iRobot may disapprove of this usage of their trademark, but we don’t care and we’ll just say it: there’s a Roomba for everything these days. The Grillbot, although not at all associated with iRobot or the Roomba, performs much the same task that the carpet cleaning bot does, only on your BBQ. Equipped with a set of rotating bristle brushes, the single-button operated machine gets to work on caked on grease and grime, taking the grunt work out of your summer feasts. Or at least, some of the gruntwork. After a few minutes of driving around randomly, the grill will be clean and ready to barbeque another day.

Expected to hit the market in mid-June, the Grillbots will cost $70 for the base model and $100 for a premium version which will have unspecified extras.
