Grills, Grills, and More Grills

R2-D2 Grill? Check out these fun grills for your outdoor kitchen!

Tired of your little kettle charcoal grill? Want an outdoor cooker that comes with more capacity and — let’s be honest — a few bragging rights? You’ll be the talk of the neighborhood when you add one of these wild, custom-made grills to your outdoor kitchen, deck or patio.

Pretty in Pork

If you go whole hog for backyard BBQ, then this artsy grill is just the thing to set on your deck. With 418 square inches of cooking surface, multi-position digital thermostat, and some nicely shaped chops, this beauty gets smokin’ using efficient wood pellets. Pig out for $1,795.

World’s Fastest Grill

Yup, that’s an actual 5.7-liter, V-8 hemi engine, capable of grilling 240 hot dogs in 3 minutes. Built by a Chrysler team as part of “What Can You Hemi?” contest, it’s not available for purchase. You’d need a quarter-mile-long patio, anyway.

R2-BBQ

A little imagination, $20 worth of heat-resistant paint, and some homemade cardboard stencils turned a$150 charcoal grill and smoker into a character from “Char Wars: Return of the Ribeye.” Beep beep! Your steak is done!

Barbecue Bling

This 6-burner gas grill includes quartz-start ignition, warming racks, a roasting hood, work shelves, and cabinet storage. Oh yes, it’s also plated in 24-carat gold, making it the world’s most expensive barbecue grill. It retails for about $165,000. With the price of gold near record highs, consider it an investment.

 A Grill that Grows on You

If you’ve got an edible garden, then you’re bound to appreciate this two-for-one charcoal cooker. By day, it looks like an ordinary terra cotta planter. But come evening, pop the lid and get your grill on. Season your vittles with fresh herbs you grow right in the top. $124.

BBQ to Go

If you like mobile technology, you’re sure to appreciate this on-the-go street-vendor grill. Sure, a shopping cart may be at the low end of the tech spectrum, but as any true outdoor kitchen chef knows, it’s not the grill, it’s the technique that counts.

Last night I grilled two steaks in less than ten minutes on a Coleman propane grill that must be 20 years old by now.

I hear ya, David. We love our old grill but just the idea that there's something new and shiny and different than the old is the appeal here. I, of course, would never run out and spend thousands on a new grill. It's just the fun of thinking about what's out there. Kind of like driving by a million dollar home. I'd never actually buy one but it's fun to window shop.

Jody, your million dollar home comment reminded me of my walk this morning. My dog and I walked through the auxiliary high school parking lot behind the stadium and saw two Cadillac Escalades. I wouldn't be surprised if the students who drove those to school live in million dollar homes.
