Rick's must haves for the outdoors and working the BBQ grill this weekend

1.  Mini Green Egg

If you already have the Big Green Egg in the backyard, but what would he take to the lake, tailgate or on that spur of the moment camping trip? Let me introduce you to the Mini Green Egg. Bet you ddidn't even know that the Big Green Egg's corporate headquaters is right here, in Norcross.
With a grid diameter of just 10 inches, the Mini Egg is the one and only perfect solution for picnics and tailgating when you want to take The Ultimate Cooking Experience on the road. It is also a popular size for grilling on apartment balconies or camping and boating. Leave those propane canisters at home and enjoy your favorite campfire meal on a Mini Egg. At one time, the Mini Egg can cook two chicken breasts, a few burgers, a sleeve of hot dogs or one large steak. Retails for $399, see more at

2. Grillbot - No mess, no work, just a clean grill - $130 on Amazon

Grilling is awesome, but cleaning all the blackened, caked-on food goo afterward? Not so much. Fortunately, we live in a time where where robots can perform most of the menial tasks we hate doing, and much like vacuuming and cleaning the gutters, grill maintenance can now be performed by a robotic slave. Just pop this little bugger on top of the grates when you’re done cooking, and he’ll go to work picking up all the baked-on burger bits you left behind.
