Your grill has to be good when it has a name like this. The Big Green Egg ($870) is a high-quality ceramic grill that doubles as a smoker and barbecue. Based on the design of the ancient oriental Kamado cooker, the Big Green Egg will turn virtually any piece of meat or fish into flame-grilled heaven. It has an 18-inch grilling surface and can accommodate a 15lb plus turkey.
Generally, we get all excited about large, somewhat bulky grills — but we've finally found a functional, stylish and sleek alternative to the $1000 Weber down at the local hardware store. The Fuego 01 Grill ($TBA) features an absolutely gorgeous modern design that includes the option of infrared, gas, and charcoal heating thanks to interchangeable cooking drawers. Other highlights include a cast-iron grilling surface, plenty of storage space thanks to several drawers, and a modular accessory system that uses pegs to attach to the perforated stainless steel exterior. Simply put, it redefines what a grill can be. [via]
This ultra-portable grill is a real work of art. Constructed of porcelain and stainless steel with a wooden base, the Eva Solo Table Grill ($325) will let you bring a little of your modern taste anywhere you want to cook a couple burgers or steaks. It has a handle for easy toting, and can be cleaned in a dish washer.
Impress your guests at cookouts this summer by putting the finishing touches on your steaks with this monogrammed brander ($80). The welded-steel, cowboy-style brander comes with a hanging barn-board holder pre-branded with your initials. It measures about 10-inches long and can be monogrammed with two or three initials — and if your initials are as boring as ours, we're sure you can come up with some clever/dirty three-letter words to offend the neighbors.
Football season may officially be over (screw your gadget plays, Cowher) but there's nothing stopping you from using this monster at other events this season and at get togethers this summer. The Cook's BBQ Ultimate Tailgate and Outdoor Kitchen ($4000) is perfect for stadium parking lots and even better for backyard bashes and camping trips — and it has everything you'd want, including the kitchen sink. It has a huge BBQ unit with three 30,000 BTU burners, a full size griddle, a fridge, microwave and light, a stainless steel sink and Counter, and much more. [via]
