Guide Review - Kalamazoo 450HT Freestanding Hybrid Gas Grill
At the heart of this gas grill is a massive cast stainless steel figure 8 burner (called a Dragon Burner), the only one of its kind. Custom made by Kalamazoo is it not only unique, but probably the most amazing burner ever to find its way inside a gas grill. Heavy, durable and capable of producing tremendous heat, this burner is just one of the incredible features in a Kalamazoo gas grill.
It's true that you get what you pay for and for a Kalamazoo gas grill you will be paying a lot, but this is one unit you can count on for decades, not just years. The level of attention to detail is unrivaled amongst all gas grill makers.
This dual fuel gas grill is capable of burning not only gas, but charcoal and hardwoods. There have been grills that do gas and charcoal, but none of them do it as well as this grill. Put whatever you have on hand (yeah right) into the special fuel drawer and fire up the dragon burner and it will ignite your fuel and you will be ready to cook in a few minutes whether you are using off the shelf charcoal or that pile of hickory logs in your backyard.
If you've got the money, give these guys (nice guys at that) a call and they will build a grill specifically for you. So not only would you get the best grill on the market, but the only one of its kind.
