SWISS GRILL IS OUT OF BUSINESS
The Z650D is a 6-burner with rotisserie and IR backburner and an infrared “Grizzler” side burner. The “D” stands for deluxe. A Z650 model is offered with a smaller cart and no side/sear burner. Construction is a combo of 304 and 430 stainless steel. The cooking surface is 8mm 304 stainless steel rod grates. The main stainless steel tube burners have 11,000 BTU output each and the IR burners are 12,000 BTU each. Electric ignition has one push button switch, but independent igniters for each burner.
Double walled hood holds in the heat and Swiss Grill claims their venting system also enhances heat retention. The Grizzler sear burner has an adjustable height grate to sear in the low position or use with pots and pans in high position.
A bright red signature bottle opener is mounted on the control panel. Plenty of storage in the cart with a large door on the right that houses the LP tank on a slide out shelf and two drawers on the left. This baby comes fully assembled on a pallet and ready for BBQ action.
Warranty covers all components against defects for 20 years.
SWISS GRILL IS OUT OF BUSINESS
Swiss Grill makes some sharp looking cookers with nice features and modest price points for the shiny outdoor kitchen market. Headquartered in the UK and made in China, they offer a good selection of gas grills and a few kitchen modules like sinks and cabinets.

The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.
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’.

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.
Built around SnS Grill’s patented Slow ‘N Sear charcoal kettle accessory, this 22-inch kamado is a premium ceramic grill that brings true 2-zone cooking to a kamado.
We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
