There are few things I love more than BBQ season. The sun, the food, being surrounded by my closest friends and family – what could be better than that?

I was recently sent the Char-Broil Digital Electric Smoker for review. Which, if you haven’t guessed, I was more than happy to put through rigorous tests to give a proper analysis of how it works.

It’s a game changer! I’ve had my fair share of BBQ, but never have I ever smoked my own meats before grilling.

This Digital Electric Smoker features Char-Broil’s SmartChef Technology, leaving you free to do what you want, rather than being tethered to it like other smokers. Through its 2.4 GHz network, the smoker sends information up to The Cloud and back down to your smart device, allowing you to monitor the smoker anywhere with a data connection. It will even send you alert when your ribs are done smoking!

To help you kick-start your summer, I’ve put together a few BBQ must-haves for this grilling season. Links to all the items featured in the above image can be found below:
