Big Guy on Cooking: Alchemy Spice Company

No, this is not a crossover between Frank Herbert's Dune and the anime/manga Fullmetal Alchemist. No, this is just a review of spices you desperately need in your cupboard thanks to Alchemy Spice Company. Let's get cooking! I'm by no means a chef, but I hope you'll be inspired by my cooking blogs to dust…

Big Guy on the Sleep Number C4

If you've been with us for a while, you probably saw one of my first posts, Big Guy Sleeping the Wave, where I wrote about my purchase of a Casper Wave mattress. You may have also caught the follow-up to that yesterday, Big Guy on Returning the Casper, where I wrote about returning the mattress…

Big Guy on Returning the Casper :(

One of the first articles I wrote after starting Big Guy on Stuff was Big Guy Sleeping the Wave. This was a write-up of my experience buying the Casper Wave mattress and how it was holding up under a big guy's weight.

Big Guy on Cooking: Lodge Cast Iron

Cast Iron cooking is one of my favorite ways to prepare a meal, particularly since I love a well-seared piece of protein. The science behind Cast Iron is fascinating, as cast iron is actually a terrible conductor of heat. It wants to be heated slowly, possibly in your oven. It wants to be bathed in…

It all started with an Echo. My story begins with the Amazon Echo. Go read that other story for a review about those.

Big Guy on Home Automation: Amazon Echo

The only problem with Star Trek that I have is that the future got here way before they said it would. I embrace my robot overlords Hello, Echo Here's the thing. I'm on Facebook, do 90% of my shopping on Amazon, and work for the Government. I gave up the assumption…

Big Guy on the Google Pixel Buds: Part 2 – The Review

This is the rest of the review I promised in Big Guy on the Google Pixel Buds: Part 1 – Connectiongate. I took a little time to do this review for a couple reasons. One, I really only use headphones when I'm exercising, and the family has been passing around the sickness over the last few…

Big Guy on Cars: 2018 Ford Mustang

One of the biggest downsides of being a big guy is a loss of options. Small people can't understand that because we may be big or tall, there are things we just don't get to experience. You won't find me spelunking. I can't walk into every store I see and purchase clothing. I don't get…
