This Is What Causes Grill Envy at Your Next BBQ!

by Kurt Knutsson

It is one of those features that draws a crowd around any family’s grillmaster.  You know that person.  They live for grilling and having fun at the BBQ.  Here are some ideas that will amp up any grill geek’s game.

The ArteFlame design combines a remarkable sculptured grill with an expression of art.  Why people love it so much is the inevitable social result of grilling on it.  It’s the bbq that kicks off my list of the greatest grills and gadgets.

ArteFlame Grill

Sure, it helps to have both celebrity chefs David Burke and Rich Rosendale give a personal lesson in grilling on the ArteFlame.  The hottest part of the grill is in the center while the edge runs at a lower temp.  Friends and family congregate around the grill making it a gathering spot and conversation piece.  New technology in design turns the ArteFlame grill into work of art and creates social ambience at the grill and cooktop.  The 40” round grill that can be used as fire-pit when not cooking on it.  Fuel: wood, charcoal or wood pellets
Temps range from 200 to 600 degrees.
