Cargo Magazine

Lights, camera, action ... Take two. When the new Cargo Magazine came to Miami to interview Steven on the essential tools for grilling, they brought in the heavy artillery--or at least a boom truck to take the aerial photo you see being staged here. So what are the essentials. The short list includes a chimney starter, spring loaded tongs, a wire grill brush--and for whimsy, a rib rack and beer can chicken machine. For the complete list and how this...
