The BURCH BARREL gives you unprecedented control over your barbecue process. You can operate the barbecue lid without having to touch it, or rest the grill on any uneven surface without worrying about it falling over, you can even lift the grill plate off the coal-pan to add more fuel. Moreover, when you’re not grilling food, the BURCH BARREL doubles up as a portable fireplace for those perfect sunset social gatherings. The barrel’s design is immediately striking, with a large tripod system that has the barrel suspended from the very center. This unique format keeps the barrel balanced and vertical at all times, allowing you to mount it on rocky terrain or even on slanted surfaces without any fear of the barrel tipping over. Inspired by a camera’s tripod, the BURCH BARREL comes with telescopic legs that let you orient the unit to be stable, no matter how unstable your ground is, giving it a competitive advantage over regular barbecue grills that traditionally require a flat surface like a pavement, to begin with.
Contemporary, compact and easily portable, the V01 comprises a rounded bullet-like body modeled from heat- resistant refractory concrete. An L-shaped enamel pipe transports the fuel through the body of the stove to the grilling surface. The multipurpose stove optimizes the combustion of fuel, allowing us to completely skip out on the unwanted smoke that slithers out during the cooking process. The base consists of wheels, allowing us to easily transport, store and arrange the stove depending on the occasion and the location. “The goal was to design a product where a ragu, a feijoada, a pasta, a pizza, grilled vegetables, and meat could be prepared,” Eduardo Gayotto, the designer behind Noori added. “We wanted to break with the limitations of a standard barbecue.” And as we can see the featured highlight of V01 remains its modularity.
Every grillmaster is faced with one tough choice: make your life easier with a gas grill, or make your food next-level delicious with a charcoal fire? Designed with this in mind, the Everdure Fusion Charcoal Electric Ignition Barbeque ensures you never have to choose. The design simplifies charcoal cooking with a Fast Flame Ignition System and electric element that helps charcoal burn consistently at the ideal temperature. Better yet, the innovative system will heat up to your preferred temperature setting within ten minutes. Easy and on the eyes and even easier to use, it gives charcoal and gas grilling fanatics the best of both worlds.
The Bigfoot Table comes handcrafted out of Western Red Cedar wood with a built-in lightweight stainless steel endoskeleton to provide it with its strength. Right in the center of the table lies an opening that reveals a rectangular fireplace built right into the tabletop. The fireplace is supplied with fuel using a propane canister that can be placed in the hollow-space below and comes with a metal outer-casing to protect the wood from getting burnt. Scattered within the fireplace pit are faux-stones that help create a truly remarkable burning surface that’s perfect for roasting smores on, and the fire can be ignited electrically with a simple push of a button and even regulated with the turn of a knob. The fireplace cover is even designed to be reversed, with a game of Mancala integrated into its flip-side – with the ability to use the firestones as game pieces!
Spark Grill walks in as a capable alternative to traditional charcoal grills and a rightful competitor to gas guzzlers you’ve been using. It is the first charcoal grill that is easy to use as its gas counterpart and effortlessly simple to control like a smart oven. The result is precise charcoal grilling, so you get all the flavor without futzing with the fire and uncontrolled temperatures. Spark Grill’s onboard LED dial can be used to control and set the cooking temperature anywhere between 200°F to over 900°F. This range and control open up new cooking avenues for a serious griller, who can now blend the natural wood and charcoal flavor to every dish being served along with craft beer. The entire experience is made worthwhile with the use of charcoal Briqs – made from classic woods like hickory and Applewood – that are used in the Spark and ignite instantly with the turn of a switch.
Envisioned as a simple BBQ that would stand upright in competition for its aesthetic design, Skara’B Barbecue proudly showcases Moroccan craftsmanship in its appeal, made possible in collaboration with avant-garde Moroccan designer Mahdi Naim. The moniker Skara’B is derived from the Scarab – a form of beetle that holds symbolic relevance in ancient Egyptian religion – and according to Fours Afifi, is known for its heat resistant properties. The hexagonally-shaped BBQ grill stands just about a meter tall and has 60cms x 60cms of cooking area. The charcoal-fired Skara’B Barbecue has a stainless steel base, which houses a cylindrical steel ash-catcher facilitating clean and hassle-free BBQ sessions on the terrace or backyard.
According to Masterbuilt, the Gravity Series 800 Charcoal Griddle + Grill + Smoker can hit temperatures as high as 700 degrees in just 14 minutes, which is monitored by a built-in temperature gauge while the meat probe thermometer ensures you get a perfectly cooked recipe every time. GravityFed hopper on the right of the grill can hold 10 lbs of charcoal or up to 16 lbs of briquettes, which can both last for almost 10 hours. If you always wanted an option where you could smoke, grill, and griddle and not have to stretch back to the kitchen for certain recipes, the Gravity Series 800 Griddle is the choice cut out for you.
Perfect for a nice alfresco barbecue, the BBQ Toolbox comes in a handy, portable size, and is made entirely from steel and coated with heat-resistant red paint. An 8×15” main grilling area is large enough to serve up a meal for as many as 4 people. The secondary grill serves as a warming rack, letting you keep food like sliders or hot dog buns warm while you grill up patties and sausages. When you’re done with your meal, lift the main grilling platform to discard your coals and give the entire toolbox a quick wipe-down before folding it up and carrying it back home. I’d advise you to store this bad-boy in your kitchen, though… you don’t want to accidentally carry your screwdriver, hammer, and wrench-set to your barbecue!
BARROW is an intriguing design, it’s a cross between a wheelbarrow and a grill! The innovative grill looks amusingly like a wheelbarrow…and even functions as a fire pit! You can use it to create a warm bonfire on those extra chilly nights, or you can add a grilling plate on top and use it to have a fun little barbecue. Not only is BARROW multifunctional and modular, but it’s also aesthetically pleasing. It has a warm, rugged, and rustic feel to it, and would complement your backyard completely!
Strictly in terms of size, the BBQ Suitcase by Kikkerland is no larger than an iPad Pro, if you were to factor in the thickness, I’d compare it to an encyclopedia. Yet it fits a fully functional grill into its rather neat and compact footprint! Perfect for carrying around in your car or even on your person (it’ll fit into a backpack pretty easily), the BBQ Suitcase comes in stainless steel and opens up from a tiffin-box to a completely capable grill enough to barbecue food for two. Designed ultimately for convenience, the portable barbecue comes with a kickstand to give it stability, and even an ash catcher that allows the product to stay mess-free. Once closed, a rather neat handle+lock allows you to secure it, carry it around, and stow it away, for another beautiful cookout!
