As loyal Shark Tank fans, fanatical grillers and lovers of outdoor fire pits, we knew this would be a product right up our alley. I mean, we have been posting about grilling tips, articles, recipes, etc for YEARS!
We ended up with a ton of samples of InstaFire grill starters and InstaFire fire starters (which, by the way, we really could have used for our fire pit at our PB Crave Road Trip to the lake).
Prepping recipes and party layout was the fun part. And like any decent event planner, you need a contingency plan, especially in sweltering heat with daily threats of flash flood thunderstorms.
Prep work involved:
- What is the best protein to grill for a group go 70-80 adults +their kids?
- What is the best marinade or rub to use
- Do we know how to use the product and demonstrate it
- Do we actually find that InstaFire solves a problem?
- Do we think our friends and neighbors would like/want/use InstaFire
Potluck style is the best way to go when serving a large crowd, and all of our neighbors had 5 grills and smokers going.
What was GREAT about InstaFire is that we didn’t have to wait to get the grills going.
We grilled everything from corn, fresh summer squash, romaine for grilled salads.
Grilled corn is always a hit with our crew!
What a great way to spend the summer. And literally almost every weekend is like this for us. It is what community is intended to be in a culture that leans toward individualism–focus on our family, our schedule, and if we can fit in some “neighbor stuff” its a bonus.
But for us, community is more than an extracurricular activity. Community is meaningful, authentic friendships with people we love and trust. People we trust our kids with. People we learn from.
We are pretty excited that something as simple as grilling solutions could give us more time to connect, and less time coaxing the appropriate glow out of the coals.
With InstaFire, we eliminate the need for a charcoal chimney. Watch our videos to see InstaFire in action!
