FrontRunners: Home on the Range
The newest line of barbecues from Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet can turn a backyard amateur into a bona fide grill master. The Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire Grills (www.kalamazoogourmet.com) are priced from $9,995 for a two-burner model to $26,195 for a six-burner version. Each model offers three distinct cooking surfaces and can pump out as many as 150,000 thermal units of heat through burners that use either propane or natural gas. Kalamazoo equips all Hybrid grills with a perforated stainless-steel drawer located above the burners that can be filled with charcoal or wood.
