The Crown Verity BM-60 Charcoal Grill is a professional BBQ grill for rental and catering. These 60″ models are a very popular size for professional use.The 72″ x 31″ heavy duty nickel plated cooking grate is reinforced to prevent warping and has a lip around the perimeter to stop wayward sausages from rolling off. The body is 14 gauge cold rolled steel with a high heat enamel finish. Legs are removable for easy transport and they have two locking and two standard casters.
Bill Verity gives a nice demo of this grill below.
Crown Verity makes professional, heavy duty no frills, frumpy, but serious 304 stainless steel grills aimed at commercial users. These cookers are industrial strength, even industrial supply giant Grainger carries Crown Verity equipment.
CV makes a wide variety of cookers from drop in and freestanding residential models to gigantic professional trailer mounted systems with built in sinks, burners and ice chests. They claim their cookers preheat in six to seven minutes. Pros love the fact that they can power wash their catering cookers when the job is finished. In addition to grills CV makes griddles, portable sinks, steamers, fryers and a limited selection of add-ons, like doors, shelves and rotisseries, for their built in and portable cookers.
The Verity family began making plows and agricultural equipment in the 1890s, switched to commercial restaurant products in the 1950s, then branched out into grills and portable food service in the 1990s. Available online and at dealerships across the USA.

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 PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

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.
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.
