Summer is officially here! That means warm weather, family vacations and of course, grilling season! Grilling technology has come a long way in recent years, so even if you think the grill you already own gets the job done you could be missing out on new advances!
Read below to learn about the top five grills for summer 2015!
1.) Kamado Joe
The Classic Joe ceramic grill may be compact (it has an 18 inch diameter), but it provides the ultimate charcoal flavor any true grill master can appreciate. The cooking range will run from 225°F (107°C) to over 750°F (398°C). This means you can cook all your summer favorites to total perfection.
The Classic Joe comes fully equipped with the grill, a cart, side shelves, an ash tool and a grill gripper. It also has a flexible cooking system where you can cook on multiple levels; which means you can cook meats and vegetables at the same time! The grill comes in signature red or classic black.
If the Classic Joe seems too small for your tastes, then the Big Joe may be your solution. It has all the same perks as the Classic Joe; the only difference is its 24 inch diameter.
The Cast Series comes in either a 300, 500 or SS 500 BI. The Cast Series 300 contains 2 burners, the 500 has 3 burners with an additional side burner and the SS 500 BI has three burners that are built in. The SS 500 BI also has a fully stainless steel construction and is available to special order.
The Edge is the newest grill on the block and a great choice for the tech-savvy types. It has the ability to connect to your iOS or Android devices though the use of Wi-Fi, so you can keep an eye on your grill from your phone while you’re inside prepping food.
This technology also lets you keep track of gas levels, temperature, lit burners and battery. It has a thin profile cantilever design that holds an infrared cooking system and comes with a fully featured online cookbook and social media platform.
That’s not all! It also includes a glass window that allows you to check on your food without lifting the lid and letting heat out.
3.) Fire Magic
The Aurora grill comes equipped with two different types of burners: the cast stainless steel “E” burners that are guaranteed for life, or the infrared burners for quick searing and high temperature cooking. The integral and removable oven warming rack is perfect for when you need to use lower heat settings.
The Aurora is easy to get started with its Advanced Hot Surface Ignition. You just simply push in the control knob, turn up the gas and light the grill. It will heat up quickly and will remain hot through a system of 16-gauge stainless steel flavor grids.
These grids are made for durability and keep heat evenly distributed. There’s also an optional recessed stainless steel rotisserie back burner and heavy-duty rotisserie kit. Compared to other grills of its size, it has more cooking space. One of the great things about the Aurora is you can grill at night because it has built in Halogen Lights. It also has a storage rack for a rotisserie spit rod.
Top in its class, the Diamond Echelon combines performance, beauty and innovation all into one grill. This model has a unique contoured face, sleek lines, and state-of-the-art features like hot surface ignition, blue backlit knobs, dedicated woodchip smoker drawer and an optional Magic View window. The window allows you to see what’s cooking without releasing any heat. These features turn ordinary grilling into luxury grilling.
Both the Aurora and Diamond Echelon are available through special order only!
