Scott Schumaker, aio Media Group President

“At first glance, I was mesmerized. I fell in love with this behemoth at the BIA’s August Home Show because I have always wanted to cook on a grill made from an alien spaceship’s reclaimed parts. It is powerfully massive yet modernly sleek. If I was a chunk of raw meat, I would want my last hours to be spent on this grill.”


coffee

“We’re all tired of coming home to a hot house. This pushes the heat out of your attic to lower your room temps fast. Imagine that — trades at the push of a button.”
