EvaSolo barrel grillEvaSolo barrel grill

EvaSolo barrel grill; the second season.
Last summer we felt overdue for a new grill. Other errands brought us to the Designtorget shop at Birger Jarlsgatan in Stockholm, and there it was. It is beautiful and it is smart, made from stainless steel and with a grid, cover/drinks tray and lid in the same material. It has a clever and handy ash bucket that carries easily to the dump. It has endured many a grill party and has spent the entire winter outside under a small roof without any damage; this promises to be a long and beautiful relationship. We got it from Designtorget, but this year it is available also from PID. There it is SEK 2.800:- (that's a little over GBP 204:-). Love hurts.

UPDATE 25 May 2005: We have heard from EvaSolo (thank you) that the SRP for the grill above is SEK 3.199:- (GBP 240:-). The other SRPs are; domed lid SEK 675:- (GBP 50:-), grill tongs SEK 285:- GBP 21:-, legs/stand for the flat lid SEK 395:- (GBP 29:-) and the cover SEK 285:- (GBP 21:-). We have not checked the options recently, but at SEK 2.800:- PID looks to be offering something of a bargain. Just remember; always check with more than one seller before you buy!

Soda can solar firestarter experiment Soda can solar firestarter experiment

That did the trick!
A little bit of Autosol and about ten minutes of work accomplished more than the chocolate and almost an hour of toil the other day. It's obvious that milk chocolate is not the ideal abrasive. We feel confident, though, that we would have gotten there with the chocolate and a lot more work. With the Autosol it was a walk in the park. Now the bottom of the is like a mirror. (Actually you can see the reflection of the camera in the picture on the right.) Now we're waiting for sunshine. Stay tuned for further reports...

The Science of Cooking
Pic borrowed from The Science of Cooking.

Fun site on the science of cooking.
Cooking is not just grinding pepper and wielding whisks. There is actually a lot of chemistry and physics behind all dishes and not just the fancy ones, like eggs benedict, and sole meunière. More than you might think. A lot of fun stuff on cooking is found on this site. The Science of Cooking via Geeky Kewl.

The Sunglass Bug The Sunglass Bug

Stop sitting on your sunglasses.
This is a pretty simple way to keep your sunglasses out of the way of your butt. And to keep them handy until you need them. This little sunglass holder is called The Sunglass Bug (for obvious reasons) and it fits neatly on your sun visor. There it vill guard your shades until you want them. We got ours at Pep Boys, but we have seen them at other places, too. London Heathrow airport for one. You could also try the link below; it is to See Fred. There this bug is USD 3:- (about one pound, fifty pence).

Snow Peak titanium spork
Ultralight titanium spork.
Packing for an expedition, you tend to count every ounce of weight. After all, you are going be carrying it on your back for the duration. This can be equally important regardless of the destination; Patagonia for six months or just down to the fishing stream or for a hike around the block. So for those among us that just have to have the lightest possible stuff we present the amazing titanium spork from japanese Snow Peak. It will not get much lighter than this. The titanium spork is USD 9:90 on Amazon.
