The weather is warming up and you want to get outside. The only problem is you don't have a BBQ! Rather than going to your local garden centre and buying a BBQ off the shelf, why not make you neighbours jealous with one of these highly unusual barbecues:
This BBQ is impressive. It was built by Tim Kowalec for Chrysler’s ‘’What Can You HEMI?’’ contest in 2005. The BBQ features a 5.7 –litre V-8 HEMI Engine and can cook 240 hot dogs in 3 minutes. Now that’s some serious barbecuing.
If you thought the previous on was impressive, check this bad boy out! This is the Texas Legend Smoker and Grill. It’s big measuring in at 30 feet long, 8 feet wide and 10½ feet tall. It has a massive 27,500 square inch of cooking space among other crazy features like a 5,500 watt generator, freezer, fridge, sink and some sweet 18’’ custom chrome wheels. Got to Love It.
So this one is the cream of the crop of BBQ set outs. Made by Lynx Professional grills, this BBQ has everything you need: 42’’ grill with access doors, double burner, storage drawers, warming drawer, beverage area with outdoor refrigerator, ice machine and a cocktail station. Honestly this is what you want. Heads up though, the ice maker is worth 3000$ alone. Just to give you an idea and not get your hopes up.
This is the Texas Lil’s Monster Smoker. The Texans love their BBQ and David Klose built this 57 ft. long and 60’’ diameter transportable monster. A few fun facts about this one: It has a cooking surface of 90,000 sq. in. and weighs in at a massive 25,000 lbs.
How about this Baby Carriage Pit? Another entry by David Klose, although a little different to the Texas Lil’s Monster Smoker. The baby carriage is believed to be a turn of the century one made in London, England, although it was found in the countryside around Houston. It took David 3 weeks to restore it and now it looks in pretty good shape.
As if owning a beautiful 911 isn't enough, this guy decided to put a bbq on his spoiler! We couldn't find much background information about this picture but I think this says it all. To add to all of this, his number plate is BBQ! Can’t really top that I’m afraid.
Thought this one was great for tailgating. Can’t think of any better set up before going to a game. I am sure you would get a good crowd at a tailgate with this one.
This is a clever concept, and maybe even the future of BBQ'ing. The Cole Henley Table Barbecue enables everyone cook their food how they like it, whilst sitting all together. You may think that the table gets hot and it’s dangerous but it isn’t, it has been designed and insulated so only the grill gets hot. The table is handmade in the UK and is available as a four, six or eight seater.
Another car entry: A vintage Jaguar Austin-Healey transformed into a grill! He has even made an area for storage and everything. This BBQ / Car (hybrid) was found at a classic Jaguar meeting.
Back to luxury barbecuing. This is the Talos Outdoor Cooking Suite by Frontgate. Among its features are a 42’’ grill with 800 square-inches of grilling space, 2 side burners, a warming drawer and searing station with griddle, bartender module and sink. In case you wondered, you will need 35,000$ for this one.
We will finish here with a classic frat keg barbecue. It’s pretty easy to make and apparently very efficient. You can buy them in shops, but why not try your hand at making one!
