Outdoor Cooking Season Fires Up with New Products from The Companion Group

Emeryville, California (EastBayDaily) — Just in time for the beginning of the traditional outdoor cooking season, The Companion Group proudly announces the arrival of their 2012 digital, interactive press kit featuring new products from their family of brands. This year’s lineup of new products includes innovative grilling thermometers from Charcoal Companion®, a highly functional grill grate oiler from Steven Raichlen’s Best of Barbecue™, bold-flavored spice rubs and pastes from Planet Barbecue™, and a complete line of pizza stones, tools and accessories by pizzacraft™.

“Even though grilling seems to be trending away from a “traditional” season, we’re always excited when it comes time to talk about our new products for the grill. One of my favorite new products is Moistly Grilled®, a cast iron grill humidifier. Adding moisture to the grilling environment – be it water, beer, wine, stock or juice – helps meats retain more of their natural juices while cooking and allows more smoky flavor to adhere to the exterior. With Moistly Grilled®, even if meat gets overcooked, it’s still delicious!” says Chuck Adams, CEO of The Companion Group.

The interactive press kit includes in-depth product descriptions, suggested retail prices, links to press ready photography as well as many product demonstration videos. The most recent version of Adobe Reader is required to view the press kit.

“Our 2012 Press Kit is chock full of information. In addition to the ability to download press ready photography, the product demonstration videos will be particularly useful for explaining some of our more esoteric products, like the pizzacraft™ Pizza Cones, ” says Sarah Goodwin, Communications Manager for The Companion Group.

Retail locations for all products, as well as samples, are available by request.
