    It's not bad. I would change up the way your post show on the right hand column and make it stand out more. I found myself actually looking to see if my grill was listed. Also, why don't you break up the sections with a drop down menu. Maybe, Charcoal, Smokers, Gas, Accessories, etc.

    The other thing I would do is add some kick ass grilling recipes to the site. Add some value.

    The last thing, and it's personal preference for me. I don't like dark sites that are trying to be authoritative. There is a lot of information on choosing colors when your trying to persuade someone. I use white and light to medium blue on sales pages.

    Hope that helps. Nice work.

    It reads nice. good layout for the info and one pic.

    kind of boring though...I know its about grills so its not going to be that exciting but maybe a better header than puke green???

    Get rid of the Home button or rename it.

    Also why you have posts in the category, when you have only one category? It is for nothing to have domainname.com/category/mysupergrill when you can have domainname.com/mysupergrill.

    And the last thing is to change a bit the sidebar, give it a header text or something.

    That's my 2 cents :)

    Btw maybe some image at the ad space (you know, above the sidebar)should be nice...I used this theme before :)

    Add a search box in top right sidebar, header related to your niche, and on the right sidebar you might wanna add a widget about Top Rated Products and point out 2 or 3 best products. Still on the right sidebar add some ads and a video related to your product. :)

    You also might want to cloak your affiliate links -- it looks much more professional.

    Its a formal basic design , you may want to add some sidebar widgets and featured images as slideshow to make it look pro.
