Kitchen Fantasies: High-End Grilling Equipment Slideshow
May 17, 2011
Memphis Pro Wood Pellet Grill
Reduce outdoor equipment clutter with this all-in-one tool: It’s a grill, smoker, wood-fired and convection oven. The one-touch Intelligent Temperature Control system maintains your desired grill temperature, but this tool can also be used to set your ideal smoking temperature for cooking ribs, briskets, and roasts. Oh, and don’t worry, the machine checks the grill temperature every two seconds (yes, every two seconds) and adds more pellets to the hopper as needed so you don’t have to worry about a thing. And with the digital probe thermometer that measures the internal temperature of the meat, once you set your desired internal temperature for the meat or food, you won’t run the risk of overcooking your dinner if you forget to come back because once it reaches that desired temperature, the grill automatically reduces the temperature to the lowest setting.

For the perfect outdoor grilling and kitchen area, this stainless steel L-shaped system is definitely a piece of equipment to have.

A rotisserie system plus a paper towel holder are tucked away in the left-hand cabinet, while the right-hand one features the new Weber dual-ring side burner that’s made for better heat control and allows for multiples cooking methods. For example, grillers can use the small ring for small sauce or sauté pans or use both rings for large pots or woks.
Plus — there’s also a built-in trash and ice bin, so there’s almost no need to go inside once you start grilling.
