Summer is almost in full swing and what better time to invite some friends over for BBQ or a Summer Soiree. Doesn't matter if a few friends or the whole neighborhood, hosting a party can be a chore and if you have friends like I do, they all want to show up, but no one wants to help out. Fear not, there is a gadget for every occasion including ones help you host a summer parties. Want to use technology for some party help and that 'wow' factor, here are some of my favorite summer gadgets that are guaranteed to make your event easier to prepare for and fun for your guests.

1. Weber iGrill Mini. I'm a good cook (at least my wife says I am) but in the frenzy of food prep and entertaining guest. sometimes my meat looks done on the outside, but is grossly undercooked on the inside. Weber is the only grill I'll own and they make the great iGrill meat thermometer that connects to your Android or iPhone via Bluetooth. Stick the meat probe in your meat and the results are sent to your smart device to let you know if your meat is cooked to perfection.

2. Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Torches. rAnyone who knows me well, knows that I hate all insects. When most people are enjoying drinks on the patio at dusk or at night, I'm the one hanging out ... inside. Not anymore. Thermacell's Mosquito Repellent Lexington Torch wards off those annoying bloodsuckers and a bunch of other critters. They create a no bug zone so that people like myself can hang outdoors with everyone else without.

3. Grillbot. I love cooking on the grill, but I hate cleaning the grill. Everytime I cook, I promise myself that I will cleanup after I take that last of the meat of veggies off the grill and it never happens. With the Grillbot, I have peace of mind know that I can drop it on my gril and it will automatically clean off all of that char-mess of the grill. At the press of a button, I can Grillbot do the cleaning and all I have to worry about is cooking.

4. Dashbon Flicks. Who doesn't love a movie under the summer stars. Sure you could borrow that projector from work and show movies, but why not invest in a Dashbon Flicks. It is an all-in-one solution that combines a cordless hi-fi boom box with a projector. You can use it to stream music from any bluetooth device or you can connect it to your to your laptop, Google Chromecast, Roku or Amazon Fire TV for a night of unlimited movies.

5. Samsung Curved Screen Ultra HD. Sunshire isn't a guarantee during the summer months and if the party has to move inside because of rain, Samsung's curved screen Ultra HD TV will provide the ultimate in entertainment for your guest with it's brilliant 4k display. SmartTV means that your can entertain your guests with movies and music from all of the popular streaming services.
