Cooking for a crowd is always a recipe for excitement. Somebody wants this another person wants that and all of them want it done a certain way. Luckily, backyard barbecues are all fun and games (or at least should be), and chances are the unpleasantness of an overdone steak will simply go unmentioned. However, if you're cooking for a crowd, and you want to keep an eye on all those steaks, a little help on the side can come in handy.

The Steak Station from Charcoal Companion offers a simple way to keep track of up to four steaks at a time. The steak monitor features four colorful probes that are each capable of measuring an individual item at a time. Translating that information into a simple-to-read spectrum that delineates rare, medium and well-done, the probe simplifies the process of cooking steak to an easy-to-read visual.

Designed for cooking in the trenches during a backyard barbecue when the crowd is clamoring for steaks, the no-nonsense interface makes grilling them about as easy as can be. Like a gas gauge for steaks, the probe tells you what you need to know. And similar to a gas gauge, the one thing to remember--especially when cooking for a crowd--is don't run out of gas, or steak. The Steak Station will be available in May.
