We have a tradition here at ChefSteps. Every spring, just as Seattle awakes from its winter hibernation, we devise an outlandish culinary exploit, and invite our friends to come and gawk at it. There are three requirements for these exploits: One, an enormous amount of heat. Two, an enormous amount of meat. And three, an enormous contraption for wielding the heat, so it cooks the meat. We design and build that contraption from scratch, and then we invite a bunch of our family and friends to a barbecue starring the flaming invention, and set up a smorgasbord of sides cooked using recipes from our development kitchen. Sounds fun, right?
