This 4-burner features cast stainless steel burners with 18,000 BTU each and a 19,900 BTU side burner. Stainless heat tents and 10mm rod cooking grates. It comes with a 1/4″ thick griddle that can be swapped out for one of the grate sections. This is a good looking large BBQ gasser with a double door cart that has side shelves, storage baskets and a built-in towel rack. Seems pricey, but we haven’t gotten a good enough look at Beefeater yet to judge.
BeefEater is an Australian company that has manufactured mid to high end grills and accessories since 1984. They offer freestanding grills and modular components for permanent installations as well as a variety of accessories. BeefEater products are not available at big box outlets in the USA and are sold exclusively through independent hearth and patio stores. They also export to Europe, the Middle East, Asia and New Zealand.
BeefEater’s claim to fame is their Australian style shallow firebox that positions the charcoal and gas burners very close to the cooking surface for intense searing. Design is similar to Weber’s Genesis and Summit lines with a shallow firebox and high profile hood, but BeefEater’s grates are even closer to the heat.
In addition to tools, rotisseries and accessories, they make a nifty Pizza Oven hood that fits their 4 and 5 burner gas grills.

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.
The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!
The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
