Taking the idea behind the iGrill and expanding it to cover the entire cooking experience, the Char-Broil SmartChef TRU-Infrared Gas Grill is the ideal tool for the connected cook. It has built-in WiFi, letting you check up on and control a multitude of features, like the internal temperature of your food, burner status, remaining cook time, and your gas tank level — no more running out in the middle of a barbecue. Built-in recipes make cooking tasty meals foolproof, and thanks to dual probe ports, you can make sure your food is done, even if you're cooking two different kinds of meat.
First introduced in the 1950s as the Portable Kitchen, the charcoal grill quickly spread across the south until production halted in the 1970s. Over 20 years later, it was rediscovered in perfect condition at a yard sale by attorney Paul James and he started recreating the PK Classic Grill straight from the original. The cast aluminum creates a durable, rust-proof shell that has proven to last, while also conducting heat and holding temperatures better than its steel contenders. A set of four vents open and close for fast sears on steaks and burgers or lower temps for smoking. Every cast is poured by hand in the US.
