Bring the Heat
The best outdoor grills on the market
Bodum Fyrkat Cone grill
Half grill, half art installation, the Fyrkat actually delivers function with its bizarre form. The cone shape helps to retain and focus heat better than typical charcoal grills. Use it as a traditional grill for burgers, kebabs, steaks, or dogs; or rig up the easy-to-use battery- powered rotisserie and brown up some yardbird.
Weber Genesis E-330
Weber’s newest gas grill is a thing of beauty but cooks like a beast. Its 507-square- inch porcelain- enamel cast-iron grate retains heat remarkably evenly so you don’t have to try and account for hot spots. If anyone starts bitching about charcoal versus gas, tell them to get the hell off of your patio. There’s no room for ingrates at a BBQ.
Fuego Element Portable Grill
Perfect for the parking lot, beach, or backyard, this compact gas grill folds up easily and includes a handle for easy carrying. The grill’s cast-iron grate heats up to 650 degrees so you can grill anything from burgers to steak to perfection. Once you’re done, break it down and toss the case in the dishwasher.
CHARCOAL AND SMOKE
Char-Griller Smokin’ Pro Charcoal Grill
Texas-style BBQ freaks rejoice—Char- Griller’s barrel-shape charcoal grill is a heavy-duty, no- bullshit fire and smoke powerhouse. Its sturdy, ridiculously durable all-steel construction is professional grade so it gets super hot. And the side firebox makes it easy to use as a kick- ass smoker as well.
Char-Broil Tru-Infrared Professional 500 IR
Harness the power of infrared grilling and you’ll get juicier, more flavorful food. Char-Broil’s new series of grills get hot—twice as hot as traditional open-flame grills—and sear the outside of burgers and steaks to lock in the good stuff. Plus, the extra heat makes cleanup easier—anything left behind is vaporized.
