Of the twelve barbecue grills evaluated on the attributes of weight, stability, portability and cooking features, three qualified for even further testing by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute. The grills were placed on a balcony, while a Chicago blizzard raged and temperatures plummeted to 16 degrees F. The Best grill was the only one that ignited under these severe conditions, on the first try, and stayed lit. Temperatures at the center and outer edges of this grill were then measured; the Best grill had a center temperature reading of 174 degrees F after just 10 minutes and the outer corner reached 81 degrees F. Typical grill fare was then cooked-hotdog, hamburger and chicken. The barbecue has a temperature gauge to measure the heat index when the lid is closed which is helpful when prewarming the grill. The stainless steel burner heats up faster, cleans more easily and uses 10% less gas than cast-iron burners. Its cooking surface is a full square foot and a patented "smoker" plate inhibits grease fires, while increasing flavor without the flare-ups. The gas regulator is adjustable for fast, high heat to sear steaks and low heat, to slow cook ribs and roasts. Cast aluminum case is rust proof, durable and yet lightweight. Stay cool, high-impact wood handles are wide and easy to grip. Assembly required. For use with low-pressure, disposable propane gas only (not included). 8 1/2" H x 15 1/2" L x 12 1/2" D. (20 lbs.)
