    And now from The National Hardware Show! Our all BBQ gadgets and goodies show! 

    There were a ton of “Ways to cook outdoors” at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas. For this week's show I picked three of them -- from under $10 to several thousand dollars. Let's start at the low end with Burnie's All Wood Self-Burning Grill.


    Here's how the company describes the Burnie All-Wood Self-Burning Grill. It's 100% All Natural Alder Wood, Zero Chemicals. When you're done, the Burnie burns itself out. No waste. No cleanup. And it's great for the environment. It is available in two sizes: Large and Medium. The Large dimensions are 12" wide x 5" tall and the Medium dimensions are 9" wide x 5" tall. Because all Burnie's are made from All Natural Alder wood the dimensions above are approximate and each can vary in width. To use, simply place your Burnie in any charcoal grill, fire pit or designated burning area and light the center fire starter. (I watched a spokesperson light one with a single match as the center wood chip is soaked in a fire starter fluid.) In about 20 minutes Burnie is ready to be either cooked directly on or used with a grill grate. You cane expect an 1.5 hour cook time for the Medium Burnie and 2.5 hour cook time on the Large Burnie. At the show they said the medium size is under $10 and the large size is under $13.
