Known for featuring lavish celebrity homes, exquisite architecture, and unique interior and exterior, Architectural Digest Home Design Show has always remained one of the anticipated events for both spacial design enthusiasts and admirers. One of the unexpected hit items from this year’s Show was created by Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, the innovation leader in high-end outdoor cooking and entertaining equipment.
Kalamzoo introduced an assortment of 12 grills that has captured the attention of casual and grillers and barbecue enthusiasts. Its newly redesigned Hybrid Fire Grills combine the convenience of a gas grill with the heat characteristics of a charcoal grill, plus the flavor of a wood grill or smoker. Backyard barbecuers can use these different fires separately or in combination to grill, smoke, sear, roast, rotisserie and more all on one grill.
The new H-shaped custom-cast, brass Dragon Burners features linear temperature control zones, with each 25,000 BTU burner tailoring the heat to a specific section of the cooking area. Burgers can be cooked at one temperature while vegetables get their appropriate amount of heat; each on their own custom laser-cut cooking surface. Gas cooking temperatures range from 250ºF to over 700ºF, while heat generated from charcoal or wood would extend from 150ºF to 1,200ºF.
The grills also feature a dedicated ignition burner to fire the main burners. This “pilot light” is part of the most reliable ignition system in the market. The special-purpose burner is paired with electronic hot surface ignition and an engineered “flash tube” to ensure quick starts, even in the windiest conditions. The ignition burner can also be used alone for low-temperature smoking and barbecuing.
Sleek and designed with aesthetics worthy of the Architectural Digest, the grills’ exterior is inspired by minimalist architecture. Its minimalist design allows the grills the ability to fit harmoniously into almost any outdoor kitchen design style or patio setting.
