How we Test Products
Our Testing Process
Our team at BBQ Grill Academy strives to conduct real-world testing on the majority of the products featured in our articles. At our location in Winter Garden, Florida, we independently test items, interviews, and conduct market research. Our research headquarters in Florida is equipped with testing kitchens, and our staff utilizes standardized testing procedures while taking video and images of the tests for use in our articles.
Testing Lab in Florida
Our team use rigorous testing procedures to ensure accurate and quantifiably trustworthy data for every product we test. Some products are tested in our Winter Garden facility, while others are sent to our home-based testers for in-depth evaluation.
Our Winter Garden location provides adequate space for testing large items, such as grills and smokers. Smaller goods are regularly sent to our at-home tester to guarantee that they are being evaluated by a subject matter expert.
Home testing enables us to acquire more real-world data and evaluate the product’s performance in real-world settings.
The purpose of testing items at our facilities is to acquire data that can be translated into content. We compile the pros and cons of each product, including if it performed as expected, if there is a superior option, and whether we would purchase the product ourselves.
