Father’s Day Grill & Chill

As seen on Fox & Friends – June 18, 2022

Father’s Day is a great excuse to celebrate some of our favorite guys…and it’s always fun to be up in NYC with our friends over at Fox, sharing some of our favorite products for Dads. Here’s a quick run down on Chip’s grill and chill in honor of Father’s Day!

Supersize Dad’s TV watching experience with a new Laser TV from Hisense. With these ultra-short throw TV consoles and up-to 120″ screen, you’ll get more than 4.5 times screen than 55-inch TV. Seriously, it’s easier to measure these TV options in feet instead of inches! This Laser TV is also the answer when you want to go BIG without breaking the bank! Hisense has models available from $2500 – $5000 compared to a 100” flat panel TV that costs $10,000 or more.

  • What is Laser TV?

Hisense Laser TV is a next-gen display technology. It gives you size and color performance that traditional panel TVs can’t. There are two main components to Hisense Laser TV – 1) the ultra-short throw Laser TV console and 2) the Laser TV Screen.

  • How does it work?

The Laser TV console projects an image at the screen which is then reflected directly outward toward the viewer.  This works in normally lit rooms because of the extreme brightness of the laser light and light rejection technology in the screen. 

  • What’s special about the TV?

With a massive 100-inch screen Laser TV brings a greater sense of immersion to whatever you watch or play – movies, sports, or video games. It’s got 4K resolution, 3000 Lumen brightness, and supports all the latest content formats like HDR, Dolby Vision, and more. It’s got a built-in sound bar so it can fill your room with great audio without needing to add any extra speakers. It’s got a smart TV platform with all your favorite streaming apps. It even has a TV tuner so you can get broadcast signal for your local channels.

  • Where should I put it?

Laser TV is awesome in a light-controlled basement or den, but it doesn’t have to go into a dark room. Put Laser TV right in the living room. You’ll be amazed at how good the picture looks.

BUT did you know that with just a tweak or two, you can turn these tools into Dad inspired backyard games?!?! Here are some step by step instructions from Green Machine to build your own hovercraft!

Take Dad’s pizza making to the next level with a HALO PIZZA OVEN! Much more than just a pizza oven, the HALO Versa 16 Outdoor Pizza Oven is innovative, versatile, and portable – making it the perfect addition to any backyard or on the go. Providing an unforgettable outdoor cooking experience through creative design and features that let you focus more on why you’re cooking, and less on how.

  • PREHEAT AND COOK TIME: Preheated in 12 minutes, the Versa 16 can cook up to a 16” pizza (XL size) in 3- 5 minutes!
  • ROATING STONE: The Versa 16’s cordierite cooking stone is perfect for all kinds of foods, not just pizza! From veggies, wings, steak and even pastries, this oven can do it all. The battery-operated motor turns the stone, ensuring an even cook, every time, with no added effort! With a cold beer in one hand and a the other in your pocket, or even prep your next pizza without the added stress of having to constantly turn your pizza.
  • PATENTED DUAL BURNER CONSISTENCY: What makes the Versa so innovative? In addition to the rotating stone, the Versa16 uses a patented dual burner system to ensure a consistent, even cook for anything you decide to make in the Versa 16. The infrared burner under the stone guarantees a reliable cook to your crust. And with the back oven burner providing convection heating, you’ll have perfectly cooked toppings and cheese.
  • HINGED LID: One huge stress of owning a pizza oven is the maintenance! Between sloppy launches, char flakes and food debris, getting into a limited space to clean your oven can be such a mess (pun intended). The Versa 16 hinged lid allows for easy access to the inside of your oven, solving the headache! Cleaning the Versa 16 is effortless. With a bottom catch tray beneath the stone and tabs on the side of the oven that allow you to fully open the top. Just pop it open, remove the stone and clean as needed!

Looking for a reliable, durable solar generator option for Dad? Goal Zero’s Yeti 1500X Solar Generator is clean, quiet, and fuel free power that turns on with the push of a button.

This weekend we are using the YETI to power our pellet grill, but the options are unlimited. Here are some of the best specs of the Goal Zero generators:

  • Solar Generator: The industry-leading Yeti X line provides sustainable backup power in homes in the case of an emergency. When combined with the Boulder 100 Briefcase, the Yeti 1500X gives users unlimited power via the sun, ensuring that users can power anything, anywhere.
  • Essential Emergency Power Regardless of Your Living Situation: Whether you live in a single-family home or an apartment, the Yeti 1500X is the perfect home backup solution that provides instant power at the push of a button. While powerful enough to provide backup in your home, including refrigerators, TVs, CPAP machines, and more, it is still portable enough to be taken with you on the road to power any adventure or if you need to evacuate due to an emergency.
  • Power for all your devices: With a total of seven port options ranging from USB-A and -C, 12v car port, and a powerful 2000W AC inverter – the Yeti 1500X can power almost anything you can plug into the wall. Its new industry-leading inverter can handle surges from power tools, medical devices and home appliances, including full-size refrigerators, microwaves and TVs.
  • Range of Power Options: While the Yeti 1500X is one of Goal Zero’s most popular solar generators, the Yeti X line includes a number of different sizes to fit your needs, including the Yeti 1000X, Yeti 3000X, and the Yeti 6000X. The number in the name represents the number of watt hours – the more watt hours, the more power and how long you can power things.
  • Endless Power: With additional panels, this solar generator can recharge from the sun in as little as 12 hours so consumers can have endless power wherever they go, charging the products that matter the most to them regardless of the circumstances.
  • Accessibility: The Yeti App makes it easy to use – you can monitor, control and optimize power usage from anywhere. The Yeti App 3.0 features remote control of power in/out, real-time power consumption notifications and charging profiles to optimize your battery life.
