Gear Patrol: Trifecta Anyone?

The Kalamazoo Hybrid Grill
Gear Patrol

Why choose between gas, charcoal, or wood when buying a grill, when you can have all three? That’s the holy trinity the new Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire Grilling System ($10,000+) offers. The magic happens via special drawers installed above the grill’s main gas burners, which can be filled with either wood or charcoal and lit from the gas flames below. Once your traditional fuel of choice gets going, just turn off the gas burners to cook with your favorite dry heat source. Think: over-engineered chimney starter. There’s even an option for a built-in rotisserie motor and drive system. The new line will be available starting this summer in four different sizes ranging from a largess 506 sq. inch grilling surface with 50,000 BTU burners to a behemoth 1,452 sq. inch surface packing 150,000 BTU of butcher shop-obliterating power. Since prices start at a cool $10k and ratchet up all the way to a mid-size sedan, we recommend you start drafting speeches now for why grilling is more important than the mortgage. Hint: “we’ve got mouths to feed honey” is a good place to start.
