Are you looking for a multi-functional cooking appliance for your backyard BBQ? Well, the KUDU not only serves as an elegantly designed open fire grill, but also an unprecedented fire pit with the addition of their fire ring. But let’s start with its grilling capabilities, shall we?

First, you can operate KUDU with your favorite briquettes, seasoned firewood (or smoked wood) as well as lump charcoal. However you choose to get your open fire, KUDU can accommodate. However, our favorite part is its unique dual cooking surfaces that are fully adjustable – both vertically and horizontally. Do you want less heat? Place objects on the upper surface. Need to rest your meat? Just turn the surface away from the fire without any trouble. It is so ergonomic and user-friendly, that we find ourselves forgetting that we are cooking a handful of different types of food (from veggies to tri-tip to chicken wings). It makes your meal happier than ever and gives you more time to enjoy and enjoy cold beer.

Not to mention that with raised cooking surfaces, it makes your coals or wood as simple and easy as we have ever experienced, and maximizes your ability to control heat. This went through our grilling test with flying colors and made for some damn delicious BBQ. With an exceptionally reasonable price point for what this grill is, it makes a home run gift idea for that open flame-baking enthusiast in your life.

Bonus: It breaks in a few minutes so it boasts portability with its already stellar capability.

Looking for a grill that (quite literally) anyone can operate? From the backyard to the beach, the Solo Stove Grill Ultimate Bundle covers all. First, the stainless steel Solo stove grill features an ultra-precise 360-degree airflow design, which heats up in minutes and gives you a faster grilling than any charcoal grill I’ve tried this year.

It is specifically designed to be a centerpiece for gathering people. Pretty much you sit around a campfire, this grill is designed in such a way that you just feel drawn to it, and when people take a seat and have a conversation essentially. We can pay attention to this first hand, as our kiddos were fascinated with the new addition to the backyard grill setup, and we all shared and shared ideas, as we cooked our dinner — a priceless experience. It is light enough to casually travel with you, and has enough duty in your yard to feel like a permanent staple.

The Ultimate Bundle is really the way to go with this grill — a small stand (13 inches long), a traditional stand (21 inches long), ultra-high-quality spatula, tongs and meat fork, a heavy duty carry case, grill. Shelter, charcoal starters (super easy to use and fire every time), plus four pounds of all-natural charcoal briquettes (some of the best flavors we’ve got from charcoal). It really is everything you need to get started right.

The brand calls it “No Hustle Charcoal Grilling”, and we will wholeheartedly agree with that claim. If you are in the market for a new addition to your backyard grill kit, or you are seeking the perfect gift for the grill master in your life, then you should take a good look at the Solo Stove Grill.

Are you a fan of simple and elegant design? Then we are guessing that you already know all about Snow Peak. They make some of the best outdoor gear we’ve ever joined hands on, and their Smokemaster Stainless Steel Smoker is no exception. It is small, portable, clean, and as simple as we have ever seen for a smoker. This is a big thing for many people, because bells and whistles can often be found in the big picture … which is delicious food.

Whatever you do, mix some charcoal (as well as smoker chips if you wish), heat it up, and then incorporate your food for a less-than-slow smoking experience. For all the different types of food you want to add, it is up to level six, and it simply does one of its job exceptionally well. Again, this smoker is not for the charming chef, nor for the feature-hungry enthusiast. This smoker is for the simple, beauty-loving backyard chef who appreciates beautiful design as much as functionality. It is extremely compact and lightweight, so making it to any camping trip, beach day, park picnic or pull de sac party is as easy as taking out a ceramic bowl of potato salad. And our favorite part about the whole operation is the minimum amount of charcoal that you need to bring this thing to the proper temperature. We will say it again: Min. beautiful.
