Grilling

The Darwin BBQ is a compact portable barbecue that's housed inside a briefcase

Picture a scene in a sitcom where some character arrives at a beach party dressed in a suit and tie, and carrying a briefcase. Everyone thinks that they’re some un-fun fuddy duddy, until they open their briefcase to reveal that there’s a barbecue inside! Woo-hoo! Well, that’s the idea behind the real-life Darwin BBQ.  Read More

The Grillcube has an integrated wick for easy lighting

Grill aficionados know it: charcoal is superior to gas if you're looking for the best flavor. But charcoal's sheen starts to wear off when you add in the extra time it takes to prep, the added mess and the possibility of making an expensive, juicy ribeye taste like a gas canister. That's where gas pulls off the come-from-behind victory handily. The Grillcube levels the charcoal v. gas playing field by taking away some of the hassle and uncertainty.  Read More

Esbit charcoal grills are super-portable thanks to light, folding design

There are a lot of portable grills on the market, but most are only portable if you happen to be traveling in your car. Grills light and convenient enough to carry on your person to a campsite, sports field or other off-the-beaten-path areas are a little rarer. This example, the Esbit BBQ Box charcoal grill, is designed to be small and light enough to take pretty much anywhere your feet can carry you.  Read More

EZ disposable grill

The all-in-one disposable BBQ in a box has become popular in Europe recently and is now available in the United States too.

Gagetek Propane Tank Scale for outdoor grill enthusiasts

May 11, 2007 High on the list of “big bummers to avoid” in the coming months is running out of propane mid-meal during a backyard barbecue or tailgate party. With this in mind, Gagetek has developed a US$30 electronic propane tank scale which should ensure it never happens again.

Powered by two AA batteries, the durable device weighs less than two pounds is claimed to be highly accurate.  Read More

Pimp my Grill - the BeefEater gold-plated barbeque

May 11, 2007 We’re not quite sure what it is about barbeques, but we’ve seen our share of innovative outdoor cooking appliances in recent times. First there was the 345 horsepower, 5.7-liter HEMI V8 barbeque, then the Powerblock V8 BBQ that brands the food it cooks with the logo of your choice and then GarageWorks’ concept tailgating appliance that cooks, cools, warms and stores. Now we’ve seen it all – in a promotional initiative designed to draw attention to its range of barbeques, BBQ manufacturer BeefEater has created the ultimate in backyard bling – the world’s first fully operational gold-plated barbecue. All parts of the US$12,500 grill except for the cooking surfaces have been individually plated in 24 carat gold. BeefEater tricked out one of its range-topping Signature Series 6 Burner SL4000 to create a uniquely lavish gold plated barbecue, “for those who want to make a statement with their barbecue and have the money to burn.”  Read More

The ride-outside grill with a proletarian price

June 16, 2006 There’s something about tending a barbeque that makes it difficult to be unhappy which probably accounts for why the practice of tailgating gets more popular each year. So popular in fact that in recent times it seems to have spawned an array of purpose-built devices from a complete US$10,000 gourmet kitchen in trailer form, through the comprehensively appointed US$3000 Chill-n-Grill tailgate set that comes with a cooker, cooler CD player, radio and integrated speakers. Freedom Grill’s business model seems to be dedicated to turning the whole world into everyone’s backyard, and they took the concept one step further with the extremely popular US$800 detachable, vehicle-mounted FG-100 that was perfect for SUVs, Pickups, and RVs. But US$800 is still a lot of money, so we’re chuffed that they’ve developed a proletarian model with almost the same functionality and a US$300 price.  Read More
