The Propane-Fueled Endless Summer -- Unless You Prefer Charcoal Flavor

There is something wistful about a Labor Day cookout — something ever-so-slightly melancholy about putting those burgers and brats on the grill one last time before summer’s end. For many, the holiday marks the start of what Spy magazine once called ‘‘anxiety season’’ — time to ‘‘overstuff the briefcase, to yearn for a new apartment, fret about the raise, lose patience, work harder, fidget, stew, anguish, roil.’’ In anxiety season, we think there is no longer room for warm-weather pleasures like cooking outside.

Which is ridiculous. Get a gas grill going, and you can run it 12 months a year. Obsessive food maniacs sneer, of course, at propane grills, with their clean flames and lack of smoke, their ease of use. Grilling, they say, means cooking over charcoal or wood, means tending to fires as a hen tends to her chicks. It does not mean clicking the ignition on a propane knob and heating through some meat on the grate 10 minutes later.

WHOA - gotta stop right here for a moment!

As one who switched from Charcoal to Propane when our kids were little, I know what it is to miss charcoal flavor for 35 years. It wasn't until I got our first FiAir prototype that I knew a return to charcoal was in my future. I gave away our gas grill and bought a new Weber One-Touch Gold 27 and never looked back.
The writer here says "Grilling, they say, means cooking over charcoal or wood, means tending to fires as a hen tends to her chicks. It does not mean clicking the ignition on a propane knob and heating through some meat on the grate 10 minutes later." 
I have often said that nobody can switch on an instant gas flame and expect to cook immediately. It takes time to warm up the box and the grill grate — like pre-heating your oven. The writer thinks 10 minutes to cooking temp with gas is something of a miracle compared to charcoal. But our innovative FiAir blower will have you up to cooking temp with charcoal in 8-12 minutes. So where's the big speed advantage over charcoal? We already know the Flavor Advantage goes to charcoal. 
So read the article and the recipes. Then duplicate them with charcoal and don't worry about when your propane tank is likely to run out of gas. You always know when your charcoal is running low; just look at the bag. 
Check out our Patented FiAir blower and see why the Charcoal v Gas debate could easily move back in favor of Charcoal for Flavor and Speed.

FiAir got a Patent from the USPTO!

Yes - we're pretty excited about this!

It means the US Patent and Trademark Office thought our inline point-n-shoot Design was innovative enough to receive a big Thumbs Up from people who's opinion counts.

It's in our News section, but we want to crow about it in our blog, too:


Pittsburgh, PA August 13, 2015  

FiAir LLC was notified by the United States Patent and Trademark Office that a patent bearing Letters Patent No. Des. 0733,686 was granted for the FiAir® blower on July 7, 2015.

Billed as “the handy little blower to feed your fires,” FiAir entered the fire tools and accessories market in June 2013 and has shipped to users in 48 States and 41 Countries.

FiAir was awarded the Patent based on its innovative in-line, point-n-shoot Design. All other blowers use a handle of some kind to contain the power supply and other components. To minimize weight and maximize portability and ease of use, FiAir LLC engineered its blower without a handle, aligning battery tray, fan blade, motor, switch and wiring within the cylinder while allowing ample airflow to feed wood and charcoal fires.

“We took some simple laws of physics and clever engineering to create a streamlined, truly portable tool,” says FiAir LLC founder Alan i Harris. “All a fire really needs to grow is oxygen and we deliver it continuously with a push of a button. FiAir’s fan blade sucks in cool air from the rear, rushes it through the cylinder, then restricts the flow through a tapered tip that increases air speed. Using steady airflow to kindle flames or shorter bursts to raise temps or spread hot spots, FiAir gives users complete control over the speed, strength and temperature of their fires.”

FiAir works with all fires; both wood and charcoal – indoors and out.

FiAir takes wood fires from first light to full blaze in about 2 minutes.

No matter how you light your charcoal, FiAir brings coals from first light to cooking temp in half the time of traditional methods: typically just 8-12 minutes.

FiAir’s speed may change the debate over Charcoal vs. Gas grills because it still takes 5-7 minutes before a gas grill is really ready to cook and FiAir also brings greater temperature control to charcoal grilling and BBQ.

FiAir is made in America and measures 9.2” in length, 2.25” in diameter and weighs 5.6 ounces. The blower is powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included) and has an MSRP $24.99 and comes with a One Year Limited Warranty.
